    I'm all for a defensive military to protect ourselves from any other that would seek to attack us, wars of choice, imperialism, hegemony, are out.
    I don't think we should have gone into Iraq either (although for entirely different reasons). I'm just pointing out that "go fight yourself if you're so eager to stop ISIS" is not an actual argument against intervention.

    Would you tell people who support the existence of a public fire department to either shut up or go around with a hose and put out fires themselves?

    Insanity is the best word to describe attacking a country that hasn't first attacked you or that there is credible evidence that such an attack is impending. Anyway, what does it say of yourself that you continue communicating with someone you consider to be void of intellect? Lol.

    I've made my arguments against intervention Mad! I realize that you've just showed up today, but my opinion on this very specific issue, going to war with a militant group that US policy has facilitated is insanity, on both parts and this particular war hawk I'm communicating with in my opinion needs to lead the charge for a couple of reasons.

    My opponents are insane!!11!!

    We should also note that you are just making things up about troops. No one has advocated such.

    Running away and making things up. Nice debate strategy.

    Anyway, what does it say of yourself that you continue communicating with someone you consider to be void of intellect? Lol.
    I'm not posting for you. Let's turn down the self centered nonsense.

    Before I'd let 40k people/families die on a mountain top for being the wrong religion, and have ISIS feel confident enough to strike the US on our own soil, I'd have the air force come in there like the hand of God. There are two carrier groups in the Persian Gulf, each with 2 squadrons flying F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jets.

    That's false. MadLib has confronted you on this BS line of "reasoning" before.

    Insanity, they're insane!!11!!

    Please, spare us this BS.

    Our foreign policy in the Middle East is insane, my message for a very long time. And I don't recall discussing troops, so why are you making things up. I'm opposed to further military engagement in Iraq. That should be clear by now.

    Again, you fail to understand. It's the first I've seen of him today, and it doesn't appear by his line of questioning he's seen my arguments against further military engagement in Iraq and thinks that telling you to get out front is the only one. You can be spared of anything I have to say, use your ignore button, but I'll be continuing to oppose US military action and policy in the ME, and you can play with the other boys and girls.

    Or maybe... you are just ignoring the logic and reason behind an opposing position.

    And I don't recall discussing troops, so why are you making things up.
    You claimed myself and others wanted to send troops. That's just making up BS.

    So, what do we have... Running from confrontation by labeling the opposition insane and making crap up.

    Do try to maintain the point in question. MadLib is currently and has before confronted your BS about ~"serve immediately or your support of the opposing position is fake".
