However, I don't agree with a lot of the measures they want to implement, particularly in revoking UK citizens' citizenship without trial. That's a patriot act style government overreach that could be direly misused. If the evidence that they're terrorists is so water tight, a trial should be open and shut.

    Europe was already civilized pre-war. The middle east has never been civilized. It's been a violent ****hole and no amount of us being there is going to change that. You can't force peace and prosperity on people, they have to choose it for themselves.

    Good thing the President bombed ISIL at the dam and Irkut huh?
    And too bad Biden wasn't listened to with his solution .

    Then save the BS with that crystal ball and do try to keep up.....when it concerns what I have said about the Saud.

    Yeah, I was glad he helped the Kurds and didn't wait any longer. They have shown they are our ally. I think the Kurds should have their own country. We just have to do the Right thing with them.....and Officially recognize them.

    From what I understand we have committed air strikes and special operations. [1] Allegedly we've reformed Task Force Black from the Iraq war, which is a joint task force with the Brits to be a general nuisance to ISIS.
    CIA + Special Ops + Air strikes = Effectiveness for cheap.

    Recently they helped protect and evacuate Yazidi civilians.
    US troops land on Iraq's Mt Sinjar to plan for Yazidi evacuation | World news | theguardian.com

    I just see no other reason to get involved. It seems like people have forgotten how bloody, costly, and ineffective it has been in Iraq and Afghanistan to have ground troops on every streetcorner and mountain top



    LOL. You're one of the John McCain "We'll stay for 99 years if we have to" types. War hawks like yourself can't be reasoned with. Must be easy as **** to demand action from your armchair.

    When the entire middle east is ridden of violence and is a peaceful democracy, then mac declares our soldiers may come home.



    He's presented his decisive plan: CIA + Special Ops + Drone strikes. How is that not a plan? This is happening right now, but because he didn't present it to YOU on American TV he must not have a plan. You do realize he doesn't run his decisions by you first, right?

    And you've still refused to tell us what YOUR master plan is.


    Yeah RA.....it was the Kurds in Syria who helped the vast majority to get away. They cleared a path.

    Our Team already was up there and gave back an Assessment.....Air Strikes only push them around or send them undercover. But The CIA and any other initial groups should be doing anything and everything on taking them out. Including their leaders and or commanders on the ground. Of course I think so should everyones Intel Agencies.....and using whatever means they need to. Whether its mercs or assassins. Oh and It should be Kill them on sight.

    Oh and the French needs to clean up their mess with Syria. Their the ones that have been filing resolutions in the UN against Assad even before Hillary had her Friends of Syria meetings. For enforceable action too.

    Just like they did later trying to get BO to jump into this mess. They couldn't trick him like they did with Libya.

    I'll defer to your expertise as long as you keep your positivity going up, up and away.

    I like RA's insight.
    Some of those Euros are starting to grow on me.
    And I'm 50% British and 50% Maine/Quebec.
    They have shown they are our ally.
    The "No Drama Obama" doctrine must continue to walk a fine line between the Kurds and Turkey.
    I think the Kurds should have their own country.
    Which would be the "Biden" doctrine.
    We just have to do the Right thing with them.....and Officially recognize them.
    In time bro--One day at a time--and I didn't get my Trib yesterday so you have me by a day .

    He doesn't anymore.....its been at 37%. They have a thread up on all his numbers for the major issues in Partisan Politics forum. But you are correct with other leaders around the planet not having any confidence in him. Nor do they trust him.

    Obammy used his race to succeed and now all the liberals and minorities see the truth that a loser is a loser regardless of race or politics. Recall all the celebrating by blacks across the country after his first election, well has America changed? Guess not.

    Well more Europeans need to get involved.....not just the Brits. Really we should tell the French take their asses out there. They started all of this. Then they were the ones talking tougher than anyone and acting like they were going to do something. Then bailed out when it came time to put up or shut up. Note how the French always is involved in others business, always mouths off and always is a no show and needs help to do damn near anything.

    Well if it a 2 or 3 state solution......so be it. Then they each have their own chunk of ground. Then they can declare war on each other with consequences coming from the rest of the International Community.

    But the terrorists need to do one thing.....Die!

    AP/GfK Poll: Obama job approval drops six net points from May to fall to 40-59, both an all time high disapproval and widest approval gap.....snip~
    7:30 AM - 1 Aug 2014

    Foreign policy used to be a bright spot in Americans’ dimming opinion of President Barack Obama. Not anymore. Associated Press-GfK polling found a spring and summer of discontent with the president’s handling of world events. Obama’s consistently low marks across crises such as the fighting in Ukraine and the conflict between Israel and Hamas could benefit Republicans aiming to win control Congress in the fall…Asked about world trouble spots:

    Even after survey after survey has recently shown a major drop in the nation’s uninsured rate, Obamacare just had its worst month in a key health-care poll. Kaiser Family Foundation, which has done arguably the best and most consistent polling on the health-care law in the past four-plus years, found that public opinion on the law sank to a record low in July. More people than ever (53 percent) last month said they viewed the law unfavorably, an increase of 8 percentage points since June — one of the biggest opinion swings ever......snip~

    I don't have a problem with your poll from August 1st--I saw it on RCP.
    Mine are from August 26-28 on RCP.
    RCP does a great job summarizing EVERY poll out there for EVERYTHING .
