    No, personally I have no reason to fear them. Or anything for that matter.

    Do you feel the terrorists have won? I feel the terrorists are winning, and will continue to do so until the democracies provide some strong leadership. Islamic terrorism is coming at a perfect time for them, with no strong leadership especially, of course, in America. A perfect storm, if you will.

    They're are certainly doing well in Europe. 15% of French people back ISIS militants, poll finds ? RT News

    What makes you so sure that the terrorists will leave the USA alone? Do you think they are lying? ISIS Terrorizes Middle East, Threatens United States

    So we are going to selectively bomb in Iraq then in Syria? We know this wont drastically hurt ISIS. But the question is where do we bomb in Syria? [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Lmao... Wasn't it like 6 months ago that we were supporting Alquaeda by threatening Syria? And now we are going to bomb Syria to protect Assad?

    The smell of bs is so strong... Who knows what to think.

    Advance policies that support militant Islamic groups. And policies that cause hatred towards America, and then wring hands over what to do. No focus EVER on prevention, just always drumming up the next wars.

    Oh, it's not to protect president Assad, more likely we'll be tapping him while in there. That's what this is about. Toppling Assad has been the purpose behind supporting the terrorist groups at work against him to begin with. And what gave space (vacuum) and rise to IS (ISIS) after all.

    Why do you doubt the resolve of the United States? Do you know the amount of tons of explosives we can drop on them on a daily basis?

    We face threats like that on a daily basis, man. But tell me, will an atomic bomb ever go off in a U.S. city? That's right, you don't know because you don't know the future, so the least you could do is recognize the legitimacy of the threat because if someone wants to do it bad enough it will be done. Al Qaeda flew planes into our buildings, had you anticipated that? Of course not. But we're in a post-9/11 world man, where "outlandish sounding" threats are a reality we must soberly examine because ours & our allies' decisions & actions have built up a considerable amount of blowback. Look, I get that you find it fashionable to condemn the United States every single time that you do, but I will warn you now, and it is carried by historical precedent, that if you rail hard enough against the country in bad times, there exists, legally, a multitude of ways to compel you into becoming a loyal citizen of our powerful tribe.

    Jango my man! What I doubt is American competence in policy that produces peace. If you think the best way for America to bring influence to the ME is with bombs and missiles, well, you have company here, but the notion is lacking.

    It's not that I don't recognise the threat man, its that our policies in the ME have helped to make it possible. The part of this that continues to escape you.

    No, it is you that is mistaken. I know why we're where we're at. You don't understand that we have a serious problem right now so reflection & introspection of prior U.S. Foreign Policy actions is not an important task to be done right now: we first must survive & resteady ourselves. Then, a thorough reexamination is in order. Sort out your priorities, mate.
