General Sherman Gives Obama Some Pointers

Nobody Remembers

There’s no escaping it: Jimmy Carter just had one of the best days of his life.–President Obama, is being hammered about how badly he is handling the war—by his generals, his x-cabinet members, and all of our allies. Obama really doesn’t have a clue how to be “Commander-In-Chief.” Notice, he hasn’t made that “I’M THE COMMANDER- IN- CHIEF!” exclamation lately.Obama and Jimmy

Obama is SO bad at commanding a war, he just might surpass Carter’s foreign policy failures. Jimmy Carter just said this::

“First of all, we waited too long. We let the Islamic State build up its money, capability and strength and weapons while it was still in Syria,” Carter told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in an interview published Tuesday. The 39th president was in Texas working on a Habitat for Humanity project.

“Then when [ISIS] moved into Iraq, the Sunni Muslims didn’t object to their being there and about a third of the territory in Iraq was abandoned,” he continued.

Carter also argued it would be strategic to have troops on the ground in Syria to help guide the air campaign. Obama, however, has pledged that the United States would not send troops into the country.

The cry is loud…on every doorstep we are hearing, “We need a STRONG leader!” Bill O’Reilly is hoping General Patton was frozen In a Disney Skywalker lab, so he can unfreeze him and send him to ISIS and destroy them all.

Since that’s not possible, I, little nobody, have another suggestion, and all I had to do was open a book. So, here’s a few tips, from a little nobody who lives near Ferguson, MO, and an American General, who actually knew how to win a war:

William Tecumseh Sherman: From his memoirs: Military lessons of the WarGeneral Sherman

SHERMAN: “No army can be efficient unless it be a unit for action: and the power must come from above, not from below. The President usually delegates his power to the commander in-chief, and then to the next, and so on down to the lowest actual commander of troops, however small the detachment. No matter how troops come together, when once united, the highest officer in rank is held responsible, and should be consequently armed with the fullest power of the executive, subject only to law and existing orders.”

NOBODY: It’s been told that Obama did not listen to ANY of his generals. In fact, nobody knows if Obama even gives his generals any other directions than, “Get me some coffee.” “and “Stand DOWN.” Obama leads from the bottom, that way, the blame never goes to the top. HIM.

SHERMAN: “The more simple the principal, the greater the likelihood of determined action: and the less a commanding officer is circumscribed by bounds or by precedent, the greater is the probability that he will make the best use of his command and achieve the best results.”

NOBODY: Here’s a simple principle Obama: WIN THE WAR! Simple. Tell your army to WIN THE WAR. CRUSH ISIS. Sherman says: KISS. (Keep it simple, stupid.) What’s that Obama? You have a plane to catch?

SHERMAN: “At the close of the our Civil War, lasting four years, some of our best corps and division generals as well as staff officers were from civil life: But I cannot recall any of the most successful who did not express a regret that he had not received, in early life, instruction in the elementary principles of the art of war, instead of being forced to acquire its knowledge in the dangerous and expensive school of actual war.”

NOBODY: Okay Obama. We all know you have no clue how to wage a war. Even Paris Hilton has studied “The Art of War.” We realize how hard it must be to go from sitting in Revered Wright’s white-hating, America hating–church, to commanding the biggest military in the world, but, it might help if you stay up a few hours at night, and get a crash course on war. The only war you know how to wage is against the AMERICAN PEOPLE! You are doing a really good job at that…just turn that attention to our enemies. After all, you need us to fund Air Force One’s fuel bills. Cartoon obama

SHERMAN: “There is a soul to an army as well as to the individual man, and no general can accomplish the full work of his army unless he commands the soul of his men, as well as their bodies and legs.”

NOBODY: Let’s face it Obama: the men hate you. You have cut their pay, left them in dangerous lands with no bullets, with orders not to shoot, you let them die, did not have their backs, and when they came home, you let them all die while waiting for care. You honored a TRAITOR in the White House. You can’t even call the enemy that has killed your soldiers by his rightful name. And let’s not forget, you personally shut down the WWII memorial while at the same time sending, Morsi, your Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian buddy, billions of dollars worth of OUR weapons.

You couldn’t command the soul of a prodigious tapeworm, face it. Better find your own Sherman, and quick.

SHERMAN: “Time is a most valuable element in all wars.”

NOBODY: And you sure screwed up the timing on THIS war, didn’t you? Jimmy Carter, the worst military commander-in-chief next to YOU, said it, not me: You waited too long, you played too many holes of golf..and ISIS just took over.

SHERMAN: “On the defensive there is no doubt of the propriety of fortifying: but in the assailing army the general must watch closely to see that his men do not neglect an opportunity to drop his precautionary defenses and act promptly on the offensive at every change.”Obama no clue two

NOBODY. Obama is on permanent defense. The world is waiting for his offensive. And waiting…and waiting…Las Vegas bets? Obama will go on the offensive….when Michelle Obama actually eats her own lunch menu’s.

SHERMAN: “Other great difficulties, experienced by every general, are to measure truly the thousand and one reports that come to him in the midst of conflict: to preserve a clear and well-defined purpose at every instant of time: and to cause all efforts to converge to that tend.

NOBODY: Is that the problem Obama? Just too many things coming at you at once? IRS, Fast and Furious, Obamacare rollout, thousands flooding the border, terror threats, FBI secrets, Hillary wanting to change the chef already— and it’s getting harder to get a golf game in every day? Or is your clear and well-defined purpose a plan to destroy America?

SHERMAN: “To do these things he must know perfectly the strength and quality of each part of his own army as well as that of his opponent, and must be where he can personally see and observe with his own eyes and judge with his own mind. No man can personally command an army from the rear: he must be “at its front”. Some men think that modern armies may be so regulated that a general can sit in an office and play on his several columns as on the keys of a pinon: this is a fearful mistake.”

NOBODY: I’m pretty sure this means you should stop meeting your generals on your IPAD between sand traps.

SHERMAN: “The effect of his mind and personal energy must be felt by every office and man present with it to secure the best results. Every attempt to make war easy and safe will result in humiliations and disaster.”

So there it is: A Union American General is telling it like it is: Obama tried to make the war easy and safe, and look what happened. He is being humiliated by ISIS every day on Youtube, and millions of people are dying, simply because, he just couldn’t pick up a book.

OR…could it be, this has been his plan all along?Mad Mag

  3. “””There is a soul to an army as well as to the individual man, and no general can accomplish the full work of his army unless he commands the soul of his men, as well as their bodies and legs.”

    It is SOUL that is totally AWOL in this fight. Obama has a Muslim soul. He is a part of the enemy. The Christian soul of the US armed forces and those of other western forces havs been allowed to sully and weaken. It is not a matter of hi-tech warplanes or well shod feet on the ground.

    Islam is the enemy that we must focus upon, not ISIS or whatever other menifestation of Muslim evil arises.

    The better C-in-C, from the ancient chinese onward would say that studied inactivity on the ‘battle-front’ is what is needed until the time is right for battle.. Develop the Soul first. Strenghthen the Army first. Strengthen the HOME first.

    Whatever sect of Muslim on the ascendant at the moment is less material than where they are. In Syria and Iraq is where we can see them wreaking havoc in a direct way while at Home there are many times more wreaking subtle havoc in all western countries.

    Clean the Home first. Expel all Muslims who refuse to ‘convert’ to a judeo-christian mode – or at the very least atheist/agnostic. Send those who do not or will not comply with western values back to Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Egypt or wherever. They are happy to demand WE convert or die. We cannot be happy – or safe- until they convert. No need to threaten death but we can send them back to where they came from. And that goes for ‘western’ people who choose to be Muslim.

    NOTHING the west can do, militarily or politically, will make a jot of difference to the middle east until and unless the Muslim mind-set is changed. They are bust killing one another over there.

    Offer refuge to NON-MUSLIMS. Gather our ammunition. WAIT. The time will come when battle can be enjoined with a far better chance of success.
