    Sadly, I'm now too old for active service. I did that for nearly 34 years. I've already named most of the conflict theaters in another post so I won't belabor the point. I don't normally bring up such things, but you should be careful whom you challenge to "suit up." Some of us have done that a lot.

    His bombing is a dog and pony show, intended to make it seem as if he's doing something while mitigating his risk. Obama could send a force today if he wanted. But Obama does not want to be "that" guy.

    Politics over terrorism, thats what Obama does.

    Have fun! The brewery tour is a good time. There's plenty of good restaurants, but sadly not much else. There's a halfway decent casino about a half-hour from there though. Try the buffet!

    Note the comments on the effectiveness of American airstrikes.

    Producing public goods or works conveys legitimacy.

    I agree. We need to go in full force in Iraq and Syria, wipe out ISIL then take out Assad with the help of Turkey. End it all! Split Iraq into 3 separate nations, maintain a perpetual force in all 4 countries. It is the only way.
