Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has called on President Barack Obama to “go big or go home” when taking on the “animalistic” Islamic State (ISIS).

But in a long Facebook posting, she says that she has serious concerns about whether he will follow through on his promise to “degrade and ultimately destroy” the Islamic State.

“War is hell, so go big or go home, Mr. President,” Palin wrote Wednesday night. “Big means bold, confident, wise assurance from a trustworthy Commander-in-Chief that it shall be worth it. Charge in, strike hard, get out. Win.”

She posted her views soon after Obama addressed the nation on TV and revealed that he’s drawing up plans to attack the Islamic State, commonly known as ISIS, with air power in Syria following strikes in Iraq.

“Go big and be real, Mr. President, if you’ve really changed your mind again and now wish to engage,” Palin wrote, referring to the president’s previous reluctance to launch an air campaign against ISIS.

But Palin said she was wary of Obama’s commitment to the elimination of ISIS, while warning that unless the terror group is eradicated it will soon target American citizens.

“ISIS must be stopped in Iraq and Syria before we need to stop them anywhere else,” she said. “As they dominate the region they head for us; we're next on the hit list.

“For the sake of peace-loving people in America and throughout the world, let’s hope Obama means what he says when he uses terms like ‘defeating ISIS.'

“He is so inconsistent in leading a failed agenda that it’s virtually impossible to put any hope in his new promises, because either his past statements shrugging off ISIS as just a ‘JV squad’ was all talk, or tonight’s new terminology is just all talk.”

Palin also blamed Obama’s decision to pull troops out of Iraq in 2011 for the rise of the Islamic State, which has captured vast regions of eastern Syria and northern Iraq in its campaign to create a caliphate.

“The rise of the animalistic terror group, ISIS, is the result of Obama’s lead-from-behind foreign policy. He had broadcast his war strategy for all the enemy to see in Iraq, so the enemy could wait us out and strike as soon as America turned tail and turned away from all we’d sacrificed there.

“Terrorists who we had under control got to regroup and grow after Obama’s premature pull out. Those are the facts, and some tough talking speech is still just talk.”

Palin’s Facebook posting was revealed just as it came to light that the ex-governor and her family were caught up in a mass brawl in Wasilla, Alaska, at a snowmobile party last Saturday night.

Alaska political blogger Amanda Coyne said that Palin’s husband Todd ended up “tending top his bloody nose, her daughter Bristol has “a strong right hook,” and her son Track was “seen shirtless on the street.”

Coyne also claimed that at one stage Palin screamed, “Don’t you know who I am?”
