    U.S. Weighs Direct Military Action Against ISIS in Syria

    EDGARTOWN, Mass. — A top national security adviser to President Obama vowed Friday that the United States would “do what is necessary” in Syria to protect American interests and said that direct military action was possible against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, known as ISIS.Benjamin J. Rhodes, the deputy national security adviser, said ISIS had become an increased threat to the United States, a threat the American government was taking seriously.
    “If you come against Americans, we are going to come after you,” Mr. Rhodes said.
    He declined to say whether the president was considering expanding airstrikes to include ISIS targets in Syria as well as in Iraq, where raids began this month. “We’re actively considering what’s going to be necessary in dealing with that threat,” Mr. Rhodes said. “We’re not going to be restricted by borders.”

    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?

    Our bombs will blow them to smithereens, man, of course it will have an impact. Why? Because our drones and planes will pin them down if we want them to. They'll have to operate clandestinely because if they go about things willy nilly then they are opening themselves up to the greatest Air Force our species has ever seen. And it just so happens that our Special Forces & Intelligence Community are World Class too. If we put the necessary effort behind our choices we will squash them like flies.

    To weaken them it will have to be a full front war. I believe it will have to be cutting off their funding, pushing them back to a specific area they control, then working with all governments, and forces against them to weaken them (being Iraq, Turkey, Syria, and all Kurd forces).

    Your youtube video proves opposing ISIS is useless? Sounds like a terrorist's wet dream.

    It was Reuters, and was stating the Pentagons positions. Is Reuters now not a good source?

    The problem is not the source or the data, it's your BS analysis and slant created not by the aforementioned but by your cheerleading of terrorists. You'll take any youtube, from any source and with any analysis, to push your warped narrative. This is clearly illustrated by your perversion of pentagon analysis in order to claim the pentagon is now credible (a claim you vehemently oppose).


    Your position is VOID of intellectual integrity. It's just cheerleading for terrorists. Your terrorist apology and support knows no bounds.
