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

    'Small Handful' of Americans Believed to Be Fighting With ISIS in Iraq - NBC News

    Other officials tell NBC News that a small number of Americans about a dozen at any given time -- are believed to be embedded and fighting with ISIS in Syria, and that some may have crossed into Iraq.

    U.S. intelligence and counter terrorism officials have previously estimated that up to 100 Americans have tried to join groups in Syria fighting to topple the regime of Bashar Assad, and that about 70 have actually made it.
    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?

    Anyone who joins ISIS, should be killed - regardless of their nationality.

    This isn't breaking news. I've posted about this countless times when I was discussing ISIS. It's been known for at least a month now.

    What is sad is that anyone, regardless of nationality, is joining these savages. What has happened in their lives? How can we possibly make excuses for them?

    Much like the KKK did when they were in power in some states, they raise children under that ideology. They in turn have more children, etc and the vicious cycle keeps on going. When you are raised with just this ideology, it is going to be very hard to turn away from it.

    ISIS is only allowed to operate in Iraq because of the instability we caused. Saddam may have been an enemy, but he was the enemy we knew. We owe it to the Iraqi people to take care of this problem we have created, and then swiftly get out.
    Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?

    Before the war is ended, the war party assumes the divine right to denounce and silence all opposition to war as unpatriotic and cowardly.
    - Robert M. LaFollette, Wisconsin Governor and U.S. Senator

    God, how patient are Thy poor! These corporations and masters of manipulation in finance heaping up great fortunes by a system of legalized extortion,
    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    That's just it, there is no "swift" way to take care of this problem. Not with our current military tactics at least. The only way to take care of ISIS is complete and utter obliteration and that would include civilians I'm afraid and the U.S. is no longer prepared to do that.

    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".
