    Well neither are the Saudis and you seem ok with that. As I stated elsewhere, on one side of the Islamic State is the worlds fourth largest military, and on the other side of the Islamic State is the second largest military in NATO! These two could crush the Islamic State yet they basically don't do ****, and I'm tired of US blood and treasure being dropped into that ME hole.

    We (America) should bomb ISIS full force, and use American ground troops, or we should stay out of it completely. This piece meal idea of dropping a few bombs here and there just to appease people politically is stupid.
    If America is going to fight a war, THEN FIGHT IT FULL FORCE AND TO WIN!
    Or don't fight it at all.

    Half fought wars always cost more blood and sweat in the long run.

    This is the first time I've heard anyone claim that US foreign policy is predicated on what the Saudis might do.

    So does bad foreign policy, like we've seen in the Middle East for decades now.

    Nice sounding rhetoric and you only left out the "bring it on" part but sending in American targets in a holy war against Islam is just what ISIS wants. You need to use your head more if you want to get these guys. We tried it your way for a decade and look what we got....more terrorists.

    I highly doubt ISIS wants to see American ground troops. I believe they are scared to death of American troops. If done correctly it would be the end of ISIS.

    Correctly means a massive invasion that completely destroys ISIS. If we aren't willing to go all out, with an overwhelming ground force, then we shouldn't be involved in the war at all.

    P.S. And we didn't try it my way. America correctly fought the war against IRAQ by using overwhelming force but we didn't correctly fight the peace.
    When WW2 ended the American troops didn't all pack up and go home. A large force stayed behind in Japan and Germany until the bad guys eventually became good guys.
    In Iraq we won and then left. That's not how it's done. If a large American force had stayed behind in Iraq then ISIS would not be there now.

    In fact terrorism had shrunk until Obama pulled the troops from Iraq. As George Bush said, it will take years before the Islamists are defeated, and after ignoring his advice Barrack Obama (and Panetta) now feel the same way.

    Had they carried on where Bush left off, and followed the advice of the CIA and the military, the Middle East would look quite different today. Obama only fights to win domestically.
