Its only a forward deployment to contain ISIS within the boundaries of the caliphate.

He’s turned his back on allies such as Israel, having proven himself a bigger friend to the likes of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood than to the Jewish state.
He’s no friend of Canada’s.
Instead of working with his friends, he’s tried in vain to appease such longtime enemies as Iran.
His rush to pull out of Iraq without leaving a reserve force behind has led to the disaster we see unfolding there now.
Now Obama needs allies to battle ISIS and help him save face. So who is stepping up to the plate? The Iranians? The Saudis? Hardly.
Yes, when things get really bad, he calls on the same allies he’s spent his entire presidency snubbing.
The Canadians, the Brits, the Australians, etc.
Forgive me if I don’t exactly jump for joy at the prospect of helping this disastrous president ahead of midterm elections when his party is facing a well deserved drubbing.
He’s the one who insisted on leaving Iraq unprotected against the advice of those who said the U.S. should leave a reserve military force behind to support that country.[…]
Obama needs a coalition to help him sell the idea of military intervention to the same far left crackpot wing of the Democratic party that he attempted to please by pulling out of Iraq in the first place.
But fine. We’re Canadians. We’re loyal friends even to people who take us for granted and treat us so shabbily.
But our loyalty should be to the American people, not to its government and especially not to the president.
We also have a duty to the world community to do our part to destroy ISIS; to kill every last one of the vile, scum-of-the-earth, murderers who have caused so much misery in the world.
The fact Obama may gain politically is an unfortunate byproduct but it doesn’t make the mission wrong.
