(Before It's News)

I don’t know what’s more aggravating: that President Barack Obama thinks that a nickel-and-dime re-insertion of troops in Iraq is the smart play here, or that he’s had over a year to come out with a better idea and came up empty. I suppose that this can be one of those ‘embrace the healing power of and’ situations. It’s not like we have much choice:

President Obama is deepening U.S. military involvement in Iraq as he searches for a “complete strategy” to train local fighters against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Obama will send as many as 450 military personnel to train and assist Iraqi soldiers and militia forces at Taqaddum military base in eastern Anbar province, part of a broader effort to retake the provincial capital of Ramadi.

I do know one thing, though. It’ll be a cold day in Hell before an American President ever uses Barack Obama in a meaningful foreign policy fashion.  Not much of a comfort, I know, but you have to work with what you have.
