    Nazis are no longer a threat to anyone. There may be a few fools who like to dress up like the SS and put swastikas on their arms, but they're no threat to anyone.

    The ISIS, on the other hand, is a threat to the peace of the world.

    Claiming someone must do something in order to talk about it is a typical intellectual coward argument. Employing such an "argument" destroys the credibility of the person proposing such and demonstrates their own emotional hysteria upon which their BS is based. Generally, the "argument" is employed by someone that lost a loved one and has not had a rational perception of the armed forces ever since.

    Limited military action.


    What the administration really means is 'we don't have a clue what we are doing...but we are trying desperately to look like we know exactly what we are doing.'

    Oh yes, that time we created, empowered and armed a group, only to have to fight them on their own turf, where they turned the Russians back then, just as they are turning us back now.

    Another fallacious argument. Talking about it, is one thing, support for more US blood and treasure to be spent, should be accompanied with his commitment, yours too. Thankfully I haven't lost anyone personal, but like many Americans, the 70% that opposed military action in Syria, I'm fed up with US blood and treasure being used wasted in the ME. so if your all for it, be the first.

    Maybe. Maybe not. There are some very sick folks that still believe.
