    As well they should. America should not be the world's babysitter. If Middle Eastern nations want to get rid of ISIS, let them do it themselves. And if ISIS prevails in the Middle East, and then commits any kind of terrorist aggression against the United States, then we should just nuke them out of existence and be done with it.

    Do we have discriminating nuclear weapons. Because I don't want anymore Hiroshima's or Nagasaki's.

    Ron Paul had it right.

    All we ever do over there is continue to stir up MORE support for their cause from the local population every time we get involved.

    We need to leave the Middle East alone.

    Ron Paul DID have it right where the ME is concerned.

    Of course it is. But part of what was Syria last month is now part of the terrorist territory and not governed by Syria.

    That's one of those ideas that would be great if it worked, like Solyndra, but we all know that there will only be further mass killings and expansion unless the Americans get seriously involved.

    I would offer a compromise of a) first daisy cutters, b) nukes. I don't want to see one more American killed, or even injured, while the rest of the world sits on their collective asses. Use the high tech killers intended for situations like this and ignore what the rest of the world says.

    In that case, you have no problem with Russian presence in the parts of Ukraine no longer governed by Kiev.

    No daisy cutters. use a BLU-118 instead.

    An FAE weapon would be better for an area target.
