Rep. Peter King: Obama should not wait for a coalition to combat ISIS

President Barack Obama will address the country Wednesday to explain to the nation "what our game plan is going forward" in the fight against ISIS.

Americans are increasingly concerned that ISIS represents a direct terror threat and fearful that ISIS agents are living in the United States, according to a new CNN/ORC International poll. Fifty percent of Americans say the U.S. should be "ready and willing" to use military force against terrorists.

    What was brought up at the latest broadcast of the house of commons is a very good point – after all the weaponry,technology and assistance we have given to Saudi Arabia – Where are they? Why no troops or assistance
    the Iraqi's ? Why nothing but silence from Riyadh? If we help Assad not to get his people murdered, so what? Is
    Amman going to help? And you should go into the historical reasons why Ankara is so reluctant to have 'BOTG'
    After Obamas Speech – Ask them! – Thanks

    when we the U.S citizens that believe in protection from terriorism....get a grip with reality.......if someone punches you in the face....and does it a few times.....are you going to tell that person that you will be taking action to stop that.....No, you take action and then talk about it.....Has it ever occurred that every time our news journalism team who keep harping on our defense team to tell the world what we are going to do to stop the punch in the face, or the knife at our throat etc., etc,,, etc.....we are helping the attacker to think about another strategy to continue their harm....

    STOP STOP STOP .....PUTTING OUR DEFENSE TEAMS IN HARMS WAY.....SO THEY CAN STILL BE KILLED......LIKE SO MANY OTHERS .......THAT WERE NOT PROTECTED BY THE MEDIA 'S THIRST FOR FAME AND FORTUNE.....

    STOP STOP STOP BOTHERING THEM AND LET THEM TAKE ACTION AND THEN TELL US WHAT THEY DID.... THOSE COWARDS WITH THE MASKS....ARE JUST THAT ....IF THEY HAVE TO WEAR A MASK....THEN THEY ARE AFRAID FOR THEIR LIFE....AND THAT IS THE FIRST STEP IN UNDERSTANDING THAT THEY ARE HUMAN AND CAN BE STOPPED.

SHAME ON YOU.......STOP THIS INSANITY...STOP THIS PUBLIC DISPLAY OF DISRESPECT FOR OUR DEFENSE TEAMS TRYING TO KEEP US ALL FREE, SAFE AND HAPPY TO GO ABOUT OUR DAILY LIVES.....

WHEN THE NEXT MARINE, NAVY, ARMY , AND OTHER FORCES ARE HARMED ,,,YOU WILL BE THE ONES THAT THE CITIZENS OF U.S. NEED TO BLAME AND NOT THE FEARFUL HUMAN THAT NEEDS TO WEAR A MASK....WHILE THEY DISPLAY INHUMANE ACTS OF LIFE DESTRUCTION.......
