    China and Russia both warned three years ago that US interference in Syria would cause the crisis to spread throughout the region. This is one reason why Putin is making Obama look bad!

    That's a stupid argument for a few reasons.

    1. Some cannot serve due to physical or mental disabilities.
    2. One needn't volunteer to work for the Dolphins in order to talk about what they should do.
    3. The military is under civilian control for a reason. What you are suggesting is that the military be autonomous, directed only by military members.

    He claimed we whipped Nazis off the face of the earth. Unfortunately we missed some. Anyone you know?

    Isis would not have morphed into its present capabilities if Hussein, Mubarak, and Gaddafi were here, and if president Assad wasn't fighting a US backed war on terror, which has him at a disadvantage, so scorched earth policy, or incompetence, either way, US interference is resulting in, well, what China and Russia predicted/warned three years ago!

    And if the Soviet Union had not invaded Afghanistan there would have been no need for the u.s to aid the mujahadeen.

    Wrong again hawk, Americans are fed up with US blood and treasure being squandered in the ME. You too, you get your boots and rifle and head on over.
