    No, ISIS predates GWB, only with a different name.

    This shouldn't be on the US, all of Europe should be offering help. As of yet the biggest thing our prime minister has done is cut his tax paid holiday short. Hopefully MI5 are successful in finding the "Brit" and the rest of the beatles ( as they have been dubbed) and make sure they never enter a civillised country again.

    Which I have no control over, man. I have to live with the consequences of the choices my President & other leaders make. And a serious volley of bull**** is coming towards the U.S. and I'd rather my country survive it first and then examine the event & the one's preceding that caused the bull**** to happen. Pick and choose your battles, man.

    Mornin' Monte. How did Bush get this Ball rolling when it was the French Filing resolutions in the UN over Syria at the same time they did with Libya?

    Beatles? That's interesting, I agree with you that others should be dealing with this. Iran, SA, Egypt, Jordan.

    I think that's precisely what I'm doing by pointing out the frustration of having to spend blood and treasure fighting enemies that our very own failed policies are creating. Why is it that emphasis is always heavy on cure, and not prevention. This is ****ing retarded.

    Yeah. This was going to happen eventually. Saddam Hussein was the one holding things "together" via an iron-fisted rule. The inevitable power vacuum was going to destabilize the nation no matter what anyone did. We may have pushed the domino over with our invasion, but unless Hussein figured out the secret to immortality, this was coming.

    Obama has already ruled out the only option that will work. Although he lied, because USAF Combat Controllers are already on the ground calling in the air strikes and lighting up the targets - as are a large number of other SOF personnel. (other secret squirrels)



    I know some of them secret squirrel kind of folks. Can't trust them. They will steal (re-appropriate) anything they can get their hands on.

    We called it re-allocation of assets. We only took what we needed though.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.
