    I like two options.

    #1 nuke Iraq and parts of Syria


    #2 Stay out of Iraq and Syria, it's their problem we're done, they wanna complain so hard then maybe they can do something for change.
    You want to kill tens of millions of innocent people because you are obviously (IMO) paranoid about ISIS - a group with no air power and (apparently) only about 7-10,000 troops in Iraq.

    If there was an award for the most ridiculous post so far this month on this site...please point it out to me so I can cast my vote for your above post.

    Make your own vote?

    Is this the post you want to vote for or the post where I said 1 million Iraqis aren't even worth a single American soldier?

    If you can answer that you are among about 1% of the American population and not in wealth, I suspect otherwise you would have far superior entertainment to this.

    I recently cleaned out some old books and came across Orwell's, 1984...and how they had threat levels or whatever they called them, only ever-changing enemies interchanged with allies, and the ministry of Truth that re-wrote recent history...while the ministry of Information created propaganda.

    As I read, I had no trouble placing that script over top the USA of today, simply change a few names, like Ministry of Information to Homeland Security.

    Then I read Machiavelli's "The Prince"......the guarantee of power, sometimes passed between rivals, through the deliberate creation of 'fear, uncertanty and doubt' which the Prince declares the essence of keeping the populace "orderly and manageable".

    Odd, even though reading classical literature, I had no sense of the historical, more the hysterical.
    Indeed. And the left rolls out Orwell when it suites the meme and the right rolls him out when it suits theirs and they both trivialise the others. Which is why I always maintain that a partisan is part of the problem. Otherwise I can't tell if Orwell was a prophet or whether US leadership has mistaken his work for a manual. Either way we've trouble on our hands.

    “There have been Twitter, social media exchanges among ISIL adherents across the globe speaking about that as a possibility,” Taylor told Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) in response to a question about “recent reports on Twitter and Facebook of messages that would urge infiltration into the U.S. across our southwestern border.”

    BUT we've been assured that the border is protected more than ever and there is absolutely no foreseeable threat from IS here in the homeland.

    Which administration gave those terrorist visas ? Which political party changed our immigration and visa laws that allowed these terrorist to be given visas ? Which administration was in charge of the former INS, U.S. Customs at the port of entry when these terrorist entered the USA ?
    Who opposed enforcing our immigration laws like interior enforcement and hunting down illegal aliens and deporting them ? All of the terrorist except one were illegal aliens. The minute your visa expires, you are an illegal alien.

    Lets not forget it was political correctness that allowed all of the terrorist to board those three aircraft on the morning of 9-11-01.

    That this administration was honest enough to admit this, something we didn't get to see from Cheney and co. last decade .

    This isn't the first time he's advocated for nuclear annihilation of that entire region of the world. He's said he has taken the repercussions into consideration; I've seen no evidence that's actually true.
