    Re: Small Number of Americans Believed To Be Fighting WITH ISIS in Iraq

    How many times do we try and truly understand our enemies and their points of view? When is our first reaction ever to sit down with them and give them the opportunity to be heard? It may not make a lick of difference but It would be nice for us to try a less aggressive first approach for a change. War will always be there if less violent means fail.

    I wouldn't doubt they hold us in the same regard.
    I am sure the USA has killed a hundred times more innocent civilians in its history than ISIS ever will. Do you hold our country to the same standards?

    ISIS reminds me of the Japanese and how they fought in WWII. They won't convert, change, or be reasoned with. The only thing ISIS offers is "convert or die".
    I sometimes wonder how the USA would look today had the prevailing view of today regarding military action existed at the time of the civil war and Sherman's march up the coast.

    It's definitely an interesting world where we're searching for new answers to old questions.

    There you go, more future homegrown terrorists being created thanks to our nation's foreign policy of military interventions. And you people want more war?
    Being created? That's just patently idiotic.

    So could a terrorist be "created" within you? Pretty chilling.

    No, this just show that the number of genetic mutations on the planet is growing at an alarming rate.

    Oh, good gawd. You'd be missing a head before you finished your first complete sentence.
