    If I didn't respond to your diatribe, it's possible you may have
    engaged in revisionism or broad sweeping generalizations.
    I don't have time for either, and you're probably on my IGNORE list.

    That's all I needed to hear...doesn't matter if they're Al-Qaeda, not Al-Qaeda, wannabe Al-Qaeda, Sunni, Shia or Mormon or...?
    Fundamentalism is a mental illness no matter where, when or what group you're including.
    There is no talking to fundamentalists, in any matters, be it economics, religion, politics, anything.
    The fundamentalist mind does not work like the typical human mind, it works like the mind of a drug addict.

    By the way, always amusing (and enlightening) to know that we're reading something "Sponsored by GE".
    Yeah, they don't have any dogs in the fight. wink-smiley.jpg

    The main obstacle for ISIS is that its ideology is not shared by the majority of Muslims in Syria and beyond.
    Since when has that mattered? (LOL)
    Over here, 70, even 80 or 90 percent of the American people can be against something, but it happens anyway.
    I can only begin to imagine what it's like in that region.

    What a bunch of hoey. The Iraqi Govt. gave us the bums rush, Malaki has Iran to protect him now. Obama did not leave one minute sooner than the agreement made under the Bush Administration. But I'm curious, do you think we should coordinate air support with the Revolutionary Guard that are now fighting against ISIS in Iraq? Maybe we can give them some pointers about tactics too while we are riskng American lives to support their mission?

    Obama's own advisers told him it was too soon to leave, but he ignored them.

    Thats based upon the 2008 withdrawal agreement. I believe that Bush was still president back then.

    Thats what I read on the Fox News article.

    Malaki kicked us out. He said our soldiers would be tried in Iraqi courts if we stayed. Is that what you wanted?

    On the contrary - Obama was in charge of that particular cluster, just as he gets to deal with this particular cluster. Welcome to what the world looks like when America decides that all this foreign policy stuff is, like, annoying, and stuff, and like, we're going to, like, lead from behind, and stuff.
