Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (Ret.) said on "The O'Reilly Factor" tonight that President Obama's deployment of 50 special ops forces to combat ISIS in Syria shows that the president isn't trying to defeat radical Islam, he's just trying to get to the end of his presidency.

"It's getting worse and worse and worse, and he's trying to do the absolute minimum to stave off an open catastrophe," Peters said.

He asserted that Obama's inner circle knows nothing about history or military affairs, living in "fantasy world" where radical Islam isn't a threat and 50 U.S. troops make a major difference in a civil war.

"We have a president whose vision of the world has been, remains and will remain divorced from reality," Peters said. "At this point, I think the American people see the Islamic State is a threat, the president doesn't see it [and] he's not acting."

"The leftist response is always, 'Well, you know, the American people are tired of war.' No! They're tired of losing. They're tired of seeing their sons and daughters killed and maimed for the vanity, the vanity of an inept and ineffective and cowardly president."
