The only REAL solution is to make the message clearly known and understood...we will hold the head of the snake accountable. Thats why I believe it is a mistake to NOT confront ISIS where we can SEE them operating. I think Obama has done exactly the right thing engaging them (even if he waited too long to do so).
I also believe that one of the reasons we are sleepwalking as a country is that the incidents involving Muslim fundamentalists are being downplayed. Every time there has been a terror attack involving a Muslim the administration and the media have gone out of their way to downplay it, or to rush to point out well golly...its not ALL Muslims. No...its NOT all Muslims...but we SHOULD be concerned about EVERY fundamentalist/extremist Muslim. We as a country and hell...EVERY Muslim.
Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
There are better models to follow in places like Iraq. They will never be a US style democracy. They dont have to be controlled by a brutal dictator like Saddam. Both Bush and Obama have done a dismal job of engaging Muslim leaders in helping Iraq establish a healthy government.
You are simply wrong if you believe ISIS is not a threat because they are 'only' butchering people in Iraq and Syria.
There is no mistake though, that Animal Farm is based on the 1930's image of the collective.....but it really is a story about totalitarianism.
