    They didn't see **** because they're blinded by their Political correctness and their allegiance to do nothing...

    The funniest part is that they claimed they "saw it coming" so what does that make them? stupid or tolerant?

    They're ****ing idiots...

    It's just plain silly.

    As a libertarian I will tell you why...

    Because if we don't they will unify - get a nuke and will melt your skin off...

    I don't agree with intervention either but these radicals are all on the same chapter, and once they're on the same page - we're in trouble, because they don't care weather they live or die - death to the Islamic radicals is a privilege if they do it taking out a non-Muslim....

    There's never been a bigger bunch of in-fighting what do you mean they're on the same page?

    I would say that he means precisely that - everyone in the ANF/ISIL/AQSL conflict is pretty much in agreement about everything except a few tactical considerations and who is in charge.

    When it comes to things like "should we launch attacks against the West", the answer is "yes." Unequivocally.

    If anything, the ongoing infighting makes life more dangerous in the short term, as flashy attacks will allow one side a leg up in relation to the other as far as donations and recruits are concerned.

    You have been schooled on this lie multiple times now and continue to repeat it. The US has not supported ISIL or ANF.

    The US is greatly benefited by a divided ME. Handing arms to one side while "supporting" another is not new policy. Creating confusion is the oldest tactic used in warfare. And the war for declining global resources continues..

    Another attack is imminent. And we will again, fail to respond in any meaningful way. This, I fear, will be a repeat of WW1 and WW2. America and it's allies will fail to stop an imminent large scale world conflict. In the end, more Americans will die then if we had just taken care of this problem when we had the chance while we had forces in Iraq.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
