    Yeah, so who ousted the dictator of Iraq causing all this chaos and giving Iran hegemony over the region? Say it loud!

In a separate action from the air strikes against the Islamic State group, the U.S. bombed a cell of al Qaida militants in northwestern Syria after concluding they were close to attacking the U.S. or Europe, Pentagon officials say. Mayville, the Pentagon’s operations chief, said that the Khorasan Group was nearing “the execution phase of an attack either in Europe or the homeland." ......snip~




    Pictures showing what U.S. officials say was an ISIL finance center in Syria show a view before (L) and after it was struck by a Tomahawk missile in handouts released by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) September 23, 2014. The United States and its Arab allies bombed Syria for the first time on Tuesday, killing scores of Islamic State fighters and members of a separate al Qaeda-linked group, opening a new front against militants by joining Syria's three-year-old civil war.....snip~

    Greetings, US Conservative.

    I realize that ISIS is a threat, but I also wonder if Israel doesn't feel a little uncomfortable that we are partnering with countries that have openly called for their destruction. I've also noticed that Palestine has been quiet lately, too. They aren't making the headlines any more, but that could be because the media is totally focused on the current situation with the air strikes, I guess, and we just aren't hearing their complaining about Israel, even though I very much doubt they've changed their mind!

    80K! Didn't know it was that high but its growing fast. Eastern Syria is on fire-ISIS is getting a dose of reality.

    Yep, and the only reason we didn't hit Deir Ezzor is due to Assad having troops there and fighting ISIS over the Oil Fields.

    Obama abandoned it. If Obama can't play with the cards he was dealt, as every president before him has had to do, maybe he should just quit.
