    That's better odds than what we see now.. I doubt ISIS would be as powerful as it is or that the Middle East would in the shape it's in with 30,000 troops still stationed there.

    Maybe, maybe not. The chaos in Syria would still have happened, and that's the birthplace of ISIS. How many nations do we need to occupy?

    No need to occupy any country, all we got to do is nuke 'em.

    A strong foothold in Iraq, along with the most advanced 'Embassy' in the world, would be all that was needed. Access would be rapidly gained to anywhere in the region.

    Imperial America?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It's not an either or choice. ISIS has limited range and possibilities. That's the trouble with this discussion. Someone of you believe the threat to be larger than it is and always have. You're in a panic mode that doesn't exist.

    Actually it is.

    That's not true. They are recruiting from areas all over the world, including the democracies. You can also see the propaganda sites which encourage these 'lone wolf attacks in Europe, Australia, Canada and, most recently, Australia.

    Nobody is in 'panic mode'. What's clear is that you're not familiar with the topic under discussion..

    Which doesn't make them the type of threat you push. Their ideology has a limited appeal and can only garner in so many. Like an insect, they can sting, but they cannot beat us.

    I'm sorry, but if you think we need to throw our morality and ideals out the window over insects, you are in panic mode.

    The leftists are siding with Islam and Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. Between leftism and Islam the future, in a couple of generations, seems clear.

    What 'deals' are you talking about?
