    Hey my personal opinion on ISIS is they are bugs that need to be exterminated completely. I just don't think we should do it at this point in time. Its time for others to put their big boy britches on and do for themselves a bit. If in the end we need to do it then we should be pitiless merciless bastards and exterminate the whole lot of ISIS men woman and children and leave nothing but bones and a lifeless desert and call it peace. Kill several birds with one stone. Get rid of an enemy in a particularly efficient and merciless manner. And put the world on notice that yes the United States can be bastards and ****ing with us is a good way to get dead. Thirdly the world will have seen we tried staying out as long as we could until we were drawn in by the stupidity of a particularly heinous actor whom we dispatched with extreme and very efficient prejudice. Hopefully afterwards the world settles down for a bit. That's the theory anywho.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    As for oil, while its true we are the number one producer, oil prices are set on a world market, and so what happens there impacts us here.
    Right now prices go up we profit. Big time. Prices go down energy costs for us go down still a win for some of us.

    I told you how we deal with ISIS. We let the Kurds the Syrians and Iraq and anybody else stupid enough to get involved handle it. We just supply preferable for a profit all the firepower and ammo and intelligence they want and need and let them take the hits. They can deal with ISIS. We can profit and get friendlier relations with everyone in the neighborhood to boot. These guys don't want us there. And there no need for us to be there. If they need hired guns we have plenty of PMC's who can do that just fine and bring home some bacon for us and keep us on friendly terms with the natives.

    I appreciete the sentiment but I dont think Ameriacans have the stomach for that. It would need to get REAL bad before we did.

    Yes. My reasoning is while they MAY become a larger threat if we are smart and support their enemies well their likelihood of growing into a threat we will have to deal with fairly low. Right now if we go in there we are playing wack a mole yet again. That likelihood is at current 100% because that is exactly what we are doing with this situation. Let the natives clean house permanently they know who needs killing far better than we do. We would be taking action to effect the outcome to our favor, just indirectly. The indirect approach in this case offers more and surer benefits.

    The term moderate Syrian rebels are just propaganda created by neocons and warmongering progressives to give an excuse for the US to intervene and its once again turning into a disaster. Better to walk away from all of this- our citizens and soldiers will be safer because I dont even know why we are there.
