    I agree with both of you, and I'm torn on this issue. I would like us to go in their and just kick arses, but at the same time I feel like, why should we make ALL the sacrifices ALL the time, and then God forbid should something go wrong, and then we make more enemies.

    Israel lacks the projection capacity, lacks the support infrastructure, and is currently facing a fairly massive threat to it's north. I think precisely 8 of "our boys" have been deployed thus far? Heck, I'd go. This would be a great mission to be attached to.

    Israel isn't the cowboy of the world. We are. We are the ones who, for some reason or another, seem to think it is our responsibility to save humanity from itself. I don't expect Israel, or anyone else for that matter, to do it.

    Well I have to disagree. I think that pressure on these governments might do some good. It is a motivation for them to do SOMETHING instead of nothing at least.

    Well, to be fair, it's not our fault. Some idiot wrote into our founding documents that all men are created equal with certain inalienable rights or some kind of nuttery like that, and we've periodically felt obliged to back that up ever since.

    There are worse Islamic terrorist groups all over the world. Recall that these guys didn't even make Hillary's list.

    Worse described.... how? Qualitatively? Quantitatively? Using what metric?

    ....yeah... not sure that's an argument against their designation so much as it is against the State Department....

    I guarantee you there is a few wild-eyed guinea gunmen, that aren't all that bright, holding AK's on those girls at all times with orders to kill when our boys arrive.

    We cannot snipe 'em all.

    I don't know about that. I've read that these guys are pretty bad.
