Happy to see action against extremists

Finally! Finally! Clarity! Resolve! We are now to take a meaningful stand against a big part of our extremist world — at least it seem so.

But wait a minute. Throughout all our railing months, are we missing something? Has there all along been a concealed strategy underlying our apparent indecision and delay? Something out of the historical tome, “The Art of War?” Something intended to strengthen the confidence and apparent prospects for success of our adversaries while exposing their strategies, strengths and weaknesses? And meanwhile quietly setting the stage for overwhelming Free World action to put all this to right?

This Republican sincerely hopes so and for Obama to get the credit if it works.
