    Not true, Maliki would have granted it. The problem was not giving up immunity, it was getting approval from the Iraqi legislature because they were unhappy with Maliki.

    Witness the rapidity with which a SOFA was reached when ISIS began to expand.

    Obama lost the peace, Kobie. He has blood on his hands.

    Talking tough is always so pretty.

    Tell us apdst... what does an ISIS member look like? Where's the front to this bombing and where is the back line where it stops?

    You have to be completely out of your mind if you think they are not hiding within civilians so what... collateral damage? Yeah... then all the relatives of the dead join on with ISIS because even if they hate them they hate us worse. The best thing we can do is remove anyone who thinks like you from any position of power anywhere.

    Tough talk from armchair patriots is not what actually gets anything done. And for those that follow such tough talk as their leadership generally find that they've been mislead due to shallow thinking.

    They have 30,000 fighters. That crowd wouldn't be hard to spot. They're an army. They live as an army and move as an army.

    How are the folks that think like you doing, so far? Not too good, huh?

    War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.

    They usually are looking and acting like the locals around them. BTW... this false narrative you are providing here has a giant hole in it being that there is a lot of room between bombing everything around, as you 'd like to do, and doing nothing.

    More Jack Hays trying to stand on someone else's shoulders. You and Tecumseh are both FoS. Perhaps you should suit up and dish all that cruelty out then? Or just sit in your armchair and talk tough some more. We both know the latter is where you'll be.
