    What you think we aren't underhanded and sneaky enough to derail their peace talks?
    Besides if we sold them the weapons and they turned on us it wouldn't be long before they needed new weapons. To help try to prevent such stupidity on their part, when we sell to them, we just put a caveat that if they use them against us, we will show them what real war is. As in what innocents, what religious places, what historical monuments, what schools, what hospitals, what life, what religion, what country, those wont exist anymore when we are through. We smile when we inform them of this aspect with their deal with the devil.

    Obama's had almost 6 years. What did he do to make the world a better place?

    Directly taking on ISIS.
    Is going balls to the wall in Africa against Ebola.

    no. I recall reading about what Russians blamed for them losing in Afghanistan. They said they could not strike legitamite deals with anyone. As soon as they would work out an alliance, that alliance would betray them. They said they could trust absolutely no one there and that's why their war failed.

    This is the scenario we are in. We arm them and now we are "showing them what real war is." It doesn't work. I'm all for stepping in against genocide. But proxy wars where we are clearly in but not in... blows up in our faces all the time. It never works. It's either shyte or get off the pot. You can't have someone take a crap for you when it comes to this stuff. It might work on smaller scales but not this big.

    Why do you insist upon answering a question about Obama by bringing up Bush? If the best you can do to elevate your guy is to compare him to failures of the past, you are simply confirming that your guy is a failure of the present. If Obama was a great president, you would be comparing him to great presidents of the past. Since you compare him to failures, you are only acknowledging that Obama is a failure upon which future failed presidents will be measured.

    That's a pretty thin resume for a guy six years in. Plus its way too early to know if his actions in either regard will bear any fruit.

    Obama is not a great president,he's somewhere in the middle. Bush is one of the worst ever and history will record that.

    Posting a couple facts does not make a writing of one's resume.

As of now these morons have the best of both worlds they have us playing the boob whose training and arming them FOR free while they then go and stir up trouble against us using the money they didn't spend to acquire what we gave them. They don't have to choose what to expend their resources on right now. Its time they started having to choose. They want to survive ISIS they pay out the ass. ISIS wants to survive the Syrians Kurds and whomever else they piss off today, they pay out the ass. We are the Devil they have to turn to, we should bargain like the devil and encourage them sell their souls to us. Force them to pay us everything they have just so they have a chance to survive their enemies.

    If we really wanted to, ISIS would be dead and extinct within a month. In the process we would scare the bloody hell out of EVERY nation on this Earth, not something we should consider until we have a more robust ballistic missile defense system and good deal more nuclear delivery devices.

    Im not. Just curious as to why leftist Obama puppets are constantly comparing him to the man they view as the worst president in history. But we both know the reason. Obama is just as bad if not worse.
