the announcement about the initial strike on syria. how likely are we to get qatar, saudis, egyptians to step into syria so we can back off? >> well, it's definitely the strategy we should be taking. how likely is that to happen? we manage to get local regional players and actors together in the past to do certain things. so i think if you look at what is happening in theory of right now when you say what are our options? on one hand at the international nationbuilding approach that says we have to change the regime. that is kind of what the previous administration, the obama administration did for a number of years while the civil war exploded and we lost half a million civilians. nothing was done. on the other hand you've got them to say get out. don't do anything. what the white house is
describing to is a very realistic approach. it is essentially saying what fun and american involvement, move it out if we get the actors in the area. the states in the area to take on that responsibility. you know, i think that is a good path to take. people are complaining my goodness, what is the strategy? they are in the past seven years of the civil war. cheryl: this strategy is tough. reports he got from five to 12,000 isis troops still in theory depending on what region we are talking about. and then you've got the word that john bolton is reaching out to particular intelligence chief and one of the most powerful men in egypt say they've got to step into the region. to be clear, we only have 2000
troops. at the numbers game that doesn't look good to the u.s. or any kind of transition. >> we also note that with isis we spent a number of years talking about how that would be a long strategy. yes, if you have a stalemate strategy and you were willing to basically just let this bad thing faster. we always have known that militarily we could defeat isis and we shall not. again, when you look at what our options are, the white house has been doing this for some time now. it hasn't been top-of-the-line because of all the other noise. saying that we are going to make a concerted effort to get the local actors to take responsibility for not just replacing the u.s. troops there, but also to take on the remnants of isis. i would argue that it's actually
