As this week ends, much of American news media and many Americans are wondering if the President’s decision to pull U.S. military forces out of Syria makes sense.
UTT asks a simpler question…
Why leave U.S. military anywhere when there is not an understanding of the enemy nor a comprehensive strategy to defeat the enemy in which military forces play a thoughtful part?
Since 9/11, the United States government has failed to identify the enemy in this global war despite the fact 100% of the muslims fighting us say they are jihadis “waging jihad in the Cause of Allah” in order to “establish an Islamic State under sharia.”
Since 9/11, the United States government has failed to identify the enemy’s threat doctrine despite the fact the global Islamic community – including the entire muslim world under the banner of the OIC (Organisation of Islamic Conference) – tells us they rely on sharia as their guide in life and it is what they seek to impose on the entire world.
Without knowing the enemy, it is no surprise that nowhere in U.S. national security documents has the United States identified our enemy since 9/11/01.
Without understanding the threat, there is no way U.S. leaders can devise a strategy to defeat the enemy and win the war.
Without a strategy, the United States lost the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, not to mention Syria and elsewhere, despite the fact the U.S. military crushed the enemy on the battlefield.
Without understanding the threat and having a strategy, how do we know Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the Kurds are our “allies?”
Without a strategy, why not bring the troops home?
