    Hey there MMC. Correction, Russia AND China denied the US legal standing for use of force in Syria. Then, we lost the support of the UK. Furthermore, congress never approved anything, and still further, 70% of Americans said no. So Obama was denied on multiple fronts, but keep peddling that partisan bs.

    No, the drone list is the new assassination list. I oppose the use of drones in countries we are not at war with.

    Yes you are correct with the Security Council Vote and with the UN.....I meant they couldn't deny us from going in if we had chose to.

    Well Americans are war weary. But then you do know who Played off of that. Which it wasn't the Republicans nor Bush. Nor Clinton. So Monte.....who does that leave?

    One is one too many and they're telling us, just like al Qaeda did, that they're coming after us abroad or at home. The threat needs to neutralized.

    Border needs to be sealed, or the threat will never go away.

    No he didn't.

    The whackadoodles in Syria created ISIS. They in turn recruited Iraqi Sunnis who were fed up with Maliki's treatment of them.

    Our borders should have been militarized years ago. The Millennium Bomber is a perfect reason why.

    Yes, I agree, if we wish to be belligerent, China and Russia likely wouldn't attempt to prevent it. On the latter, I have plenty of criticism for Obama, but Bush got this ball rolling and now a majority of Americans view both Iraq and Afghanistan as mistakes.

    US policy in the ME has emboldened AQ, then we worked with them in Libya to overthrow Gaddafi, and working toward the same end in Syria. Making a mess, causing the problems we have to then fight. Real sound.

    The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) used to have a different name: al Qaeda in Iraq.

    US troops and allied Sunni militias defeated al Qaeda in Iraq during the post-2006 "surge" — but it didn't destroy them. The US commander in Iraq, General Ray Odierno, described the group in 2010 as down but "fundamentally the same." In 2011, the group rebooted. ISIS successfully freed a number of prisoners held by the Iraqi government and, slowly but surely, began rebuilding their strength.

    http://www.vox.com/cards/things-abou...w/what-is-isis

    The group, (ISIS), in its original form, was composed of and supported by a variety of Sunni Arab terrorist insurgent groups, including its predecessor organizations, Al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) (2003–2006), Mujahideen Shura Council (2006–2006) and the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) (2006–2013), other insurgent groups such as Jeish al-Taiifa al-Mansoura, Jaysh al-Fatiheen, Jund al-Sahaba and Katbiyan Ansar Al-Tawhid wal Sunnah, and a number of Iraqi tribes that profess Sunni Islam.
