    Thanks, Obama!

    The only realistic suggestion you make is to arm the Kurds.

    Greetings, APACHERAT. Glad to see you back!

    Well, I'm certainly happy to hear that "geopolitics" are obsolete. Think of the problems we'd be facing if they weren't obsolete! :

    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]
    Where ever Iran tells us to. Seems we will be their air cover in Iraq and Syria. Other than they are an enemy of Israel, not sure what generates Obama's fascination with Iran.

    I would disagree. Why is stopping funding to people who give $$$ assistance and opening the Iraqi gov to Sunni's "unrealistic"?

    Call it what it is first, man: it is a modern crusade. It's religion disguised as foreign policy. However, certain actions & reactions have kept us busy and involved.

    Remember what President Bush said?

    This crusade, this war on terrorism is going to take a while. And the American people must be patient.

    Oh, ok. Well then I guess it's not.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
