Giuliani Proposes Additional ‘Boots on the Ground’ Against ISIS

The United States should deploy more ground troops to the Middle East to defeat the Islamic State terrorist group, according to Rudy Giuliani.

The Republican, who was mayor of New York City during the 9/11 attacks, accused the Obama administration of failing to adequately address the threat the extremist group poses to the United States. He said Sunday on “The Cats Roundtable” radio show: “It will have to require, yes, boots on the ground, which the president is constantly saying he never wants to do.”

According to The Hill, Giuliani warned that “maybe we’re going to lose more lives if we don’t put boots on the ground — in fact, we will.” He added: “These people see our weakness and they’re taking advantage of it.”

Giuliani slammed President Obama for announcing when the United States plans to pull troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, calling the withdrawal schedule “an admission of defeat” that would not have happened during the Civil War or World War II. “You know Truman ordered the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and that killed all civilians, but it saved a million American lives, so an American president has to think like that,” the ex-mayor declared. “He’s got to think for America. That’s who he has to protect first, then everybody else.”

Referring to ISIS, Giuliani remarked: “I think they’re emboldened now by Obama’s lack of real response; his worry about killing civilians. I don’t want to kill civilians, you don’t want to kill civilians, but if these people are using civilians as shields, which they’re doing, we’ve got to take them out.”
