    Sunnies caused the problem that we had to go in for before. Now theyre all of the sudden trustworthy?

    As far as everything else, I guess we'll know later one when the US does there after action press briefings. I have to admit though, using F22 Raptors, the world's first 5th generation fighter and perhaps the best fighter in the world, does seem like a bit of overkill against a group like ISIS.
    But a great way to show off our new toys to Mr. Macho Putin. What was it the head of the laufwaffe said to Hitler when Hitler asked him what he needed? A spitfire?

    I'm all for going after these cockroaches, and I know it's a horribly difficult prospect to do so.

    But I'm certain this will be entirely ineffective, and now Obama wants to arm the very people he laughed off a few weeks ago. This will serve only to arm ISIS further as they defeat this "army" we support and confiscate the weapons we provide. This will only exacerbate the problem.

    Worse still, this is just conveniently timed for the elections in November. A big campaign strategy is at the root of this whole thing. Nice that Obama uses our military in that fashion these days.

Jordan is a strategic ally and had recently been threatened by ISIS. The one surprise for a lack of participation is Kuwait.
    That doesn't surprise me and it's very disappointing considering ol' man Bush saved their asses and americans died for their cause.

    It's a given ISIS would have ended up in wood chippers. Considering saddam was sunnie and the sunnies were in power, your statement is ridiculous.

    This is what modern conservatism is all about. And nothing else.

    Really.....and how long did you say you had been a Practicing Psychologist. I heard some in the Syrian Rebels were learning how to drive a tank.

    Nice to see your partisan agenda trumps your support of an American military mission and CIC. "I won't work! It won't work!" Jesus listen to your self deprecating whining.

    And furthermore the right was pleading the president to do something. Now some like yourself are complaining he is. WTF?

    Add to the fact that D'Souza has been convicted of a felony and you can see why he is darling of the Right. He's got all the elements: Obamaphobia, Counterfactuality, Criminal Record. That's what makes a conservative intellectual.
