BILL O'REILLY (HOST): But it puts the 50 [Special Forces Soldiers] in danger.
RALPH PETERS: Do you think Obama cares about that?
O'REILLY: Well, I'm saying you put 50 on the streets of Chicago. I mean -- you know -- ISIS, 50 [Soldiers] you're sending them into Syria, hostile territory on all fronts?
PETERS: Bill, we have a president whose vision of the world has been, remains, and will remain divorced from reality. It's not that he wants to destroy America. He profoundly wants to change America but he hates the military, just despises it -- doesn't want to do what it takes to beat ISIS. Those polls you cited. The American people have common sense. They'll give the president a lot of leash. But at some point the leash runs out. And at this point I think the American people see that Islamic state is a threat. The president doesn't see it, he is not acting. And you know, the leftist response is always well, the American people are tired of war. No they are tired of losing. They are tired of seeing their sons and daughters killed and maimed for the vanity, the vanity of an inept and ineffective and cowardly president.
