    Wow! Amazing....
    Liberals did not put Obama in the WH--Moderates and Centrists did. Liberals wanted Dennis Kucinich.

Seems we should start with that and then rolling ISIS back out of Iraq first.

    But then again, if we can cut some of the heads off ISIS, that is good. I will wait and see what future reports say. This may be good or it may be bad. I still think we ought to make nice with Assad, his 250,000 man army is just the ground forces we want and need if we are not going to put any American boots on the ground. Just my opinion there.
    This may answer that question Pero. It has to do with Khorasan/ Former AQ. Yeah and ISIS already moved its leadership and clerics out of there. 2 weeks ago they started hiding equip and tech. Including the Scuds they took from Assad. 14 attacks on ISIS with Air Strikes and 47 Tomahawks were fired. They hit ISIS' HQ to, unfortunately nobody was home.....at the time. Also 8 strikes on Khorasan.




    US Syria raids also aimed at thwarting attack plot: Pentagon.....


    US forces staging the first strikes against Islamic State jihadists in Syria also targeted a separate extremist group plotting an imminent attack against US and Western forces, the Pentagon said. In the air strikes against IS jihadists, the US was aided by Arab allies Bahrain, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, it said.

    Eight US air strikes were also aimed at the hardline Khorasan Group which is made up of former Al-Qaeda operatives, the Pentagon said in a statement. "The United States has also taken action to disrupt the imminent attack plotting against the United States and Western interests conducted by a network of seasoned Al-Qaeda veterans -- sometimes referred to as the Khorasan Group -- who have established a safe haven in Syria to develop external attacks, construct and test improvised explosive devices and recruit Westerners to conduct operations," the statement said.....snip~

    I doubt that many of the ISIS people who have been killed by U.S. airstrikes will agree with you.

    The U.S. military can put a lot of bombs and missiles on a lot of targets in a short period of time.

    We are running out of Tomahawk missiles.

    Actually, I may have to take my hat off to the crazies--

    After all, it is an interesting reverse psych operation when the Wingnuts manage to paint Obama as some traitorous Marxist whose real loyalty is to the Islamists, in essence forcing his hand so that Obama becomes one of the more aggressive warmongering presidents in recent history--not to mention it ties his hands domestically, the constant cries of "Soshilizm!!!" every time he tries to do something for the American people. Brilliantly Machavellian.

    Personally, I would of preferred a joint command between the Syrians, Americans and the Iraqis to coordinate a little shock and awe air campaign with an assault on ISIS' southern and eastern borders. But since Obama has decided that Assad must go, that isn't going to happened, and we've seen just how effective Iraq has been... even after billions spent and years of us training them. Hell the FSA won't be ready for at least six months. Once you eliminate the possibilities, you gotta admit, the US is looking more and more like the best option.
    It's not that I don't want Americans killed, it's that I am sick and tired of Americans getting killed in those bumb f**k Eqypt countries and so are most of the Anerican people.

    Oh brother. You need to go back to the conspiracy category.

    How has doing away with Qaddafi worked in Libya? Libya now has many tribes fighting each other, has become a place for terrorist training camps, it is pure chaos and turmoil. Is this success? Letting the pain in the butt Saddam remain in power in Iraq, ISIS wouldn't have come charging in.

    I asked this before and will ask it again and again, does anyone in Washington ever do an assessment of what may happened once we remove these dictators? What and whom may replace them.
    With the immediate cry from many that the US supports dictators?

    No, no. Can't have that, the cry is raised. So I guess turmoil such as what we now have in the ME is better?

    But No! It's not! Is now the cry. Well folks, you can't have it both ways.

    Either you support, or at least not depose, limit and manage these dictators, or you wade in depose them and have to accept the results such as this.

    You can't have it both ways. The two choices are mutually exclusive.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels
