    Evidence A: your rant that immediately follows:

    The war on terror is a joke and will never be won, ever! Perpetual war is a pretty good deal for defense contractors though.

    So tell us, how do you suggest the US and West deal with the genocide being committed by ISIS? Wait... let me guess... negotiate?
    End all financial support to those countries that have supported them indirectly/directly, stop flowing arms into Syria, pressure Iraq to allow Sunni's into their government, arm the Kurds in both Iraq and Syria.

Wonder what Russia will have to say about this.
    I really dont think its a way to secretly overthrow or weaken the Syrian government.

    Who would you say that is?

    stop flowing arms into Syria,
    Meh, it's nothing compared to Iran and Russia.

    pressure Iraq to allow Sunni's into their government,
    Sounds good.

    arm the Kurds in both Iraq and Syria.
    I'm with that.

    Hey, it helped putting an incompetent community organiser into the White House.

    BTW: Both Obama and the self proclaimed war hero John Kerry are on record saying that "geopolitics" are obsolete today in the Twenty First Century.

    Only you believe it. That's what makes it my point and not yours. Anyone doubting my intellectual ability is surely ignorant. Of that I have no doubt.

    To claim someone with my capability is a robot only makes your argument even more weak. No one with unabomber positions can hold a candle. Your global CT does not confront me.
