Ask And You Shall Receive....

In a recently released audio recording, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, mocked the United States because it is “unable to send ground forces to fight” ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The Guardian reports:
The top-ranking officer in the American military said on Thursday that the US is actively considering the direct use of troops in the toughest upcoming fights against the Islamic State (Isis) in Iraq, less than a week after Barack Obama doubled troop levels there. 
General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, indicated to the House of Representatives armed services committee that the strength of Isis relative to the Iraqi army may be such that he would recommend abandoning Obama’s oft-repeated pledge against returning US ground troops to combat in Iraq.
