Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter

Not ready to falter.

Is he now, concerned about our sons and daughters?

Or did he hear a brokenhearted mother’s prayer from the altar?

Or is he tired of all the Christian slaughter?

Or is he tired of hearing Russia acts stronger?

He doesn’t seem worried that the war could last longer.

He has a mission to cover the three “R’s”

The Three R’s

Raqqa

Ramadi

Raids

In testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee on October 27, Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter (shown) said that the United States will begin “direct action on the ground” against ISIS forces in Iraq and Syria. “We won’t hold back from supporting capable partners in opportunistic attacks against ISIL, or conducting such missions directly whether by strikes from the air or direct action on the ground,” Carter said in testimony before the committee. (The Obama administration prefers the acronym ISIL.)
