    That is an amusing outlook. Odd that you don't say that about those elected officials that disagree with your views.

It's not Obama's fault Al Maliki disenfranchised the sunnies and kurds and some of these people don't have the courage to fight for their country.


    But it was BO's fault for not listening to Maliki when he came to BO.....in Nov of last year, asking BO to do something about the Terrorists. He did request aid and BO did deny him.

    You don't think you can change that historical fact now, do you?

    Bet you can guess now.....if he would have done something back then. That ISIS would not have all the ground they hold now.....huh? Oh look.....Bush Junior can't even be blamed for that failed act of leading from behind.

    American airstrikes against ISIS targets are under way in Syria, according to a Pentagon official.



    "I can confirm that U.S. military and partner nation forces are undertaking military action against ISIL [ISIS] terrorists in Syria using a mix of fighter, bomber and Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles," Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby said. "Given that these operations are ongoing, we are not in a position to provide additional details at this time. The decision to conduct theses strikes was made earlier today by the U.S. Central Command commander under authorization granted him by the commander in chief. We will provide more details later as operationally appropriate."

    Well, we'll just have to wait and see how badly this one backfires on us.

    Where do you think these guys got their guns and their military training?

    The endgame is to topple Assad. We armed and trained the ISIS fighters, but now they're getting out of hand, so we're bombing them as an appeasement to the American public and also to send a message.
    Heya PG. Got a link on we trained and armed ISIS fighters.....or did you mean those Syrian Rebels that defected?

    Ask yourself this.... how does a ragtag group of "whackjob Muslims" conquer Afghanistan? Conquer large swaths of Iraq and Syria? It takes a trained, organized, and well equipped army to accomplish that.

    We armed and trained them to fight our geopolitical foes, the Russians, Assad, Sadaam Hussein, the Iranians. Those nations that actually pose a security risk to the way of life of the American Public.

    These "whackjob muslims" are just the ones that got out of hand.... yes, they deserve blame for being fundamentalist nuts, but we also shoulder some blame for arming and training them to begin with.

    The airstrikes in Syria have little to do with fighting terrorists. The geopolitical goal of the United States is to topple the Assad regime or to force it in to submission.

    You might not know this, but in addition to airstrikes, we are currently arming what our administration is calling "the moderate resistance" forces in Syria to fight a ground war there. The airstrikes are nothing but air cover for these "moderate resistance forces."


    Well....You need to look who was in command positions in ISIS and whos Army they belonged to before ISIS.

    There are no Moderates in Syria. Or to be trained in Saudi Arabia.

    Cruise missiles will be very effective against ISIS because it could hit ISIS HQ, one that HQ is built.

    It could also destroy fixed ISIS radar installations and SAM batteries, assuming they ever deploy them.

    Finally, cruise missiles can decimate an entire contiguous area where all ISIS members assemble, away from the population, in order to easily identify themselves as the bad guys to the international community (as opposed to disguising themselves as civilians and dispersing within population centers).
