    So, let the extremists slaughter 100k innocent people, advance on Baghdad and possibly strike the US with a terrorist attack?

    The way I'm talking about hitting them is at an intense enough level to change the game, and make Putin think twice about advancing on former soviet/euro blocks. Our policy in Syria was to let a bunch of people die and cause ISIS to grow.

    Um, I've posted that numerous times, so no, not again and certainly not for a dishonest person such as yourself, take a hike.

    Does that post not fit the definition you provided?

    Step back and look at the situation in the Middle East from a distance. It's burning, and its burning largely due to insane US policies there for years. IS has been empowered and strengthened due in large part to US interference in Syria. Russia and China warned three years ago that US interference in Syria would cause the crisis to spread throughout the region, and behold, that's what we have. The forces of Hussein, Mubarak, Gaddafi and Assad never gave quarters to these militant Islamic jihadists. The US has totally ****ed the ME up. We need to leave. Let Israel, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Egypt crush these guys, and lets keep our meddling nose OUT.

    Considering a lot of those countries get aid from us I'm note sure how we can get out of the picture. If you don't recall Israel almost ran out of ammo recently.

    Thats where it always starts... first its a "limited action"... then it escalates to "air support"... then it escalates to "boots on the ground".... then "nation building"... then "permanent bases"... sheesh, when are we ever going to learn...

    Only when the repubs are in charge. Kosova was a good example when Clinton was president. Libya didn't involve any boots on the ground either.

    There are boots on the ground in Kosovo and fyi our soldiers have died there.

    American soldier fatally shot on Army base in Kosovo: report - Washington Times

    Libya didn't involve any boots on the ground either.
    FYI one of our diplomats was killed in Libya and its a mess. Hooray for interventionism!
