ISIS, a “manageable problem” ? Does Obama aspire to be Caliph? A Limerick.

0Obama never ceases to confuse himself and us. In his press conference in Estonia on his way to the NATO summit in Wales he tried to explain  or clarify his remark of last week that “we don’t have a strategy yet” to address the militant group in Syria, Obama said they do have a regional strategy. Ultimately, he said, “our objective is clear, and that is to degrade and destroy ISIL so it is no longer a threat not just to Iraq but also the region and to the United States.”

Fair enough, but then later in the press conference, Obama returned to the topic and said this:

…  if the U.S. is joined by an international coalition, they can “continue to shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem.

Obama: From crisis to crisis;

a “manageable problem” is ISIS.

For it is his belief

he will soon be Caliph;

as cool as a bucket of ice is.

(For those that are curious, Obama uses ISIL, not ISIS. He recognizes the Caliphate lays claim to not only Iraq and Syria, but also Lebanon, ISRAEL, Jordan, Kuwait  and part of southern Turkey, all of which defines the Levant)

The question is: What did Obama mean by “manageable problem?”
Less than 10 Christians beheaded per week? Or contained within the Middle East? As he also said: “We don’t have a strategy yet”
