US Special Ops Is Sick of Obama, Unleash Their Rage With HUGE Announcement

    President Barack Obama is unwilling to do anything in his final years as U.S. president that might be contrary to the legacy he wishes to preserve. Thus, he is unwilling to engage the Islamic State group militarily because he wants to be known as the leader who ended American military entanglement in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    That’s the conclusion of top U.S. special operations commanders meeting in Tampa for a special ops forum.

    Despite what Obama may not want to do, the commanders have announced that they are building forces for a fight with the Islamic State group that could last more than a decade.

    “We’re patient,” commented Lt. Gen. Bradley Heithold, head of Air Force Special Operations Command.

    “We’re going to have to start thinking of root causes,” added Lt. Gen. Charles Cleveland, the head of U.S. Army Special Operations Command. “We have to try to set the conditions so that an eight-year old today doesn’t become the jihadi in ten years.”

    And many special ops officers and troops want to start the fight against the Islamic State group now. They are sick and tired of fighting the group indirectly by remaining behind the lines when advising Iraqis, Kurdish Peshmerga and rebel Syrians who actually go into battle.

    “We are doing everything through cellphones,” complained one special operator whose name was withheld.

    Many officers at the Tampa forum seemed convinced that Mosul and Ramadi would not have fallen if U.S. military advisers, at least, had been with Iraqi forces on the front-lines.

    What does this story have to do with being sick of Obama?

    This is actually kinda bad if you're a Special Ops leader in Tampa. President Obama is the Commander in Chief. If you disagree with him, then disagree. It's just not something that someone should be able to quote you on.

    Now anyone in Tampa is essentially guilty by association.

    And we do not need to be portraying a divided military to the world.
