    Also you do tend to forget those other allies and what they do to cause US involvement and what happens when they cause a vacuum to take place.
    Ok, so you're of the opinion that only democrats foul things in the ME. That would be a typical partisan position. You haven't realized that decades of failed US policy in the ME has caused the trouble we see today. You blame it all on the democrats which makes you both anti-American, and, part of the problem. Jesus dude, stop blaming one party and start being part of the solution. STOP being partisan!

    Stop being a partisan. Be an American and call out failed US policy in the ME!

    'President Barack Obama on Wednesday vowed that the United States will not be swayed from airstrikes against Islamic State after the group beheaded an American journalist'

    In other words, kiss 'no boots on the ground' good bye.


    Btw, Neocons must be, IMO, loving the beheading...just gives America another excuse to butt into the Middle East.

    Wow, just wow. What you offer is the no-win scenario. If Obama kills more terrorists with drones than Bush did, you argue he's wrong because he should have captured more. Undoubtably, if he captured more than Bush, he would have erred too, in your view.

    Suggesting that any American thinks that this barbarous beheading is acceptable--much less that it's great--is contemptible.

    I never said they thought it was acceptable....I said they must be loving that it happened - at least the powerful ones.

    I doubt any powerful Neocons knew this guy and they, IMO, are always looking for an excuse to butt into other countries businesses in the name of American security.
    This gave them that excuse.


    And please don't be so incredibly naive...do you honestly believe that Washington power brokers are going to give a crap about one freelance journalist getting beheaded?

    What is contemptible is how 4,000 American soldiers lost their lives in Iraq and no one in power in Washington seemed to bat an eye...yet one rogue journalist gets killed in a grizzly, public way and those in power start to publicly freak out.

    I find that pathetic.



    It also goes to show...as long as no one sees it, no one gives a sh!t about most atrocities.

    Women can get raped by the hundreds every day...hardly anyone blinks. Genocide, starvation, pain, misery, suffering goes on daily...and people yawn.

    But actually show it to them...only then will they care enough to want to actually do something to stop it.

    That is contemptible.

    The Pope and Rome, are they two different things?

    At least Bush would know something what a fighter looks like. Spinelessness is the backbone of American liberalism and you are going to be put to the test. If we don't put boots back on the ground to kill ISIS then it could spell the end of liberalism depending how severe ISIS attacks us in our own country. Once the little liberals see their own homes burned they will see the world in a different light begging the right to protect them.

    Hyperbolic BS!

    I guess I will have to go buy a larger water hose so I can prevent this from happening.

    Oh, and I don't need the right-wingers to protect me. I have three good friends, Sig, Sauer and Ruger to help me in time of need.
