It isn't clear how close of a policy adviser to Donald Trump that former New York City mayor RudyGiuliani is though they are at least friends.
But Giuliani took Trump's troops on the ground to defeat ISIS theme to a completely new level.
According to The Hill, Giuliani on Sunday reiterated his call for ground forces to be deployed to defeat ISIS.
During a radio interview with John Catsimatidis Sunday, Giuliani said he’s confident in the military’s ability to defeat ISIS but that it will require using all of the tools it has at its disposal.
“It will have to require, yes, boots on the ground, which the president is constantly saying he never wants to do,” he said. “Well maybe we’re going to lose more lives if we don’t put boots on the ground — in fact, we will. These people see our weakness and they’re taking advantage of it.”
He also called the president’s use of timetables for withdrawing troops in Iraq and Afghanistan “an admission of defeat.”
Then he went full bore Ayn Rand Institute nuts.
“I think they’re emboldened now by Obama’s lack of real response, his worry about killing civilians,” Giuliani added of ISIS. “I don’t want to kill civilians, you don’t want to kill civilians, but if these people are using civilians as shields, which they’re doing, we’ve got to take them out.”
