    Re: How foreign fighters are swelling ISIS ranks in startling numbers

    You want to beat ISIS, just make Dick Cheney president; cause everyone is scared of Dick Cheney. I think their little club would disbanded before he even took the oath.

    We could then send in Halliburton to clean up the mess.



    No doubt some on the Left think he runs ISIS.

    No they won't. Foreign fighters go for a Tour and then typically go home.

    Numbers mean nothing on this side of the ocean. All of ISIS couldn't make it through 10 miles of Texas on a Saturday night.
    ....are you arguing that Texan terrain is more difficult to traverse than the Iraqi desert, or are you arguing that we have our southern border zipped up tight?

    And this is typical?

    Nope.

    Are you really suggesting that the radicalization of British muslims is a paranoid fantasy? Really? I mean really? REALLY?

    generally. Just because they want to get their Jihad on and impress all their buddies on Facebook doesn't mean they actually want to - you know - live in Syria.

    Nope.
    Then what did you mean when you stated that "All of ISIS couldn't make it through 10 miles of Texas on a Saturday night.", given that ISIL has tens of thousands of bodies, and everything from AK-47's to tanks. ?

    It doesn't matter where they come from. Kill them all, wherever they show themselves or present a target for aircraft. And force the people who are sheltering them in cities choose between turning them out, or being considered hostile and subject to bombing themselves. So few jihadists could never control so many times more people, unless a lot of those people were abetting them.

    Hyperbole, CP, but not much. ISIL will never invade the US. There are enough troops and big things that go boom in Texas alone to stop all of ISIL if, for an example, they were to make a mad rush across the border (hyperbole). Their numbers don't threaten the U.S. proper. Beyond Pakistan's nuke what should concern us is that they are able to recruit their numbers so rapidly.

    We are not at war with Islam. It is to their distinct advantage to make it appear that we are.

    Why would ISL "make a mad rush across the border"? Isn't it possible they would be more discrete in order to fit in?

    ISIL as you know does not threaten the US via overt invasion, but rather covert insertion preceding attack. The idea that they couldn't make it 10 miles is and remains hyperbole. What is not hyperbole is to either point that out or point out how they are armed.
