    I've never denied the history of the ME. Just pointing out that we haven't been an improvement, an inference you seem to want to make. And not every nation on earth pursues their interests at the end of a gun!!

    You obviously miss the point, all the points. We weren't attacked because of our 'values'. Check US interference in the ME for a century. Complete withdrawal eliminates future attacks. That's beside the fact that we don't know who attacked us anyway, assuming you reference 9/11.

    Not over there we don't, we are not the world police. All that happens when the U.S. gets involved in the middle east is we mess it up. Here's a hint, they don't like us and they don't want us over there. We are only acting as a recruitment tool for Al-Qaeda.

    And as for your statement of "You aren't going to lose this war", what in the holy hell are you even talking about. Unless you are deployed there YOU ain't doing anything except typing on a damn computer keyboard.

    Let Iraq and Syria handle them. They are both allies. Let them handle them and fight them. They are in their backyard so they should handle them. The SAA has been doing a pretty good job and slowly destroying ISIS.

    Netanyahu pretty much agrees with letting both sides kill each other. Neither one is our friend. However, I do think some aid should be supplied to the Kurds and others friendly to the US. Jordan is reporting of ISSA invading that country also. Other reports coming out have stated among the ISSA terrorists are approximately 1500 Brits and some Muslim Americans. That should be a wake up call for some but I doubt it. I see all those young men pouring through our open unprotected borders just about the same age as these terrorist fighters. That should be a wake up call as well. But I doubt it.

    This all can be traced back to the US's removal of that counterbalance, Saddam Hussein.

    Second Consecutive Day of Airstrikes by Syria Is Aimed at Shoring Up Iraqi Armed Forces

    BAGHDAD—Syrian warplanes carried out airstrikes in western Iraq, stepping up the military role of the U.S. adversary in helping Baghdad's Shiite-dominated government fight Sunni insurgents.

    The strikes on Tuesday came as the Pentagon announced that the first 130 members of a potential 300 U.S. military advisers were in place in Baghdad to start assessing and improving the Iraqi army's ability to counter the gains of rebels led by the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham.

    And the escalation continues. Under Obama our geopolitical adversaries fill the power vacuum.
    You left out an important fact. The Iraqi government asked the Syrian government for help in bombing ISIS targets.

Northrup-Grumman, Lockheed Martin, and Raytheon gotta be happy campers as all these warring parties need weapons and business is good. "War is good business, and business is good." Somebody give the marketing and promotions departments a bonus for pulling this latest one off. A lil' killin' here, devastation and mayhem over there and the stock is looking good. Ain't CORPORATISM grand?
    Got any proof of that? Naw, didn't think so.
