Jeffrey Lord | #NeverTrumpers Recommend Negotiating With ISIS

Jeffrey Lord | July 1, 2016

Astonishing. Truly astonishing.

The #NeverTrumpers who style themselves “Delegates Unbound” have used a snippet of President Reagan on the use of military force, with Reagan saying this:

“Use of force is always and only a last resort.”

The clip then has Donald Trump saying this of how he would deal with ISIS:

“I would bomb the s–t out of them.”

The obvious implication: Reagan would negotiate with ISIS, not “bomb the s–t out of them” because Reagan was wise enough to understand that the “use of force is always and only a last resort.”

Question? After 9/11, Ft. Hood, Chattanooga, San Bernardino, Paris, Brussels, Orlando and now the attack in Turkey (not to mention London and Madrid and heaven only knows what other places around the globe attacked by these radical Islamists), do we seriously have a group of Republicans who do not think the use of force against ISIS is more than justified? Are they really saying that with radical Islamists doing their damnedest to kill not just Americans but Westerners that the answer is… negotiate with ISIS? Really? Really?


In 1983, confronted with the reality of a Communist coup in Grenada that was designed to make the country another Cuban-style Soviet outpost just miles from American shores, Reagan went Trumpian. He ordered “Operation Urgent Fury” and sent 6,000 troops and the full air power of the U.S. military to (borrowing from Trump) “bomb the s–t out of them,”


Quite clearly, by attacking Trump for saying he would bring the full force of the American military to bear in destroying ISIS — something President Obama has stoutly refused to do — the “Unbound Delegates” have, unbelievably, sided with Obama. (Read More)
