Regarding the Sept. 12 editorial “ Wise course”: Critics are loudly saying that President Obama does not understand that ISIS is one of the greatest threats the world has ever seen. They say he has no strategy. I believe he does have a strategy and a very good one. It has these steps.
Step one: Convince the world that the United States and its allies like Great Britain and too few others are not going to rush in and do all the work.
Step two: Get the rest of the threatened world to stop being selfish and lazy and contribute their share of effort and treasure to the fight.
Step three: Then, and only then, provide those new forces with whatever the United States is capable of, no matter what it takes.
