    But if we have total war, how would you complain about that?

    As GOP Congressman Royce criticizes the President.
    And a movement is now under way from DEM Van Hollen aimed at Boehner to bring back the 435 clowns from their vacation .

    It's better than chemical genocide, institutionalized rape and a fake wmd program. A democratic government is fighting against genocide instead of a dictator committing it. Isn't that better?

    I say we get out. There are no good guys. No pro western sides. We get out. Let them kill each other. We just need to kill the ones attacking us. Wash our hands of the Middle East.

    There was a factual error in the story, Syria had a jet shot down back in march by Turkey...
    Turkey shoots down Syrian warplane, Erdogan says - CNN.com

    Assad should have been ready and then Mobilized and went in the ground mopping up what he could. Although ISIS did go and take Raqqa from the Rebels in the first place.

    This has been the goal of your GOP since the night of the 2008 election .

    That's debatable--do you think this current situation is better than before we took out Saddam/
    Do you support the idea of a guerilla war against the USA for the last five years ?

    No, but its unlikely-I dont know that we need it (it would take months or years to fully gear up). We would likely defeat these guys before hand (at least as they are currently situated, COIN would continue indefinitely
