    Step up to the fight, its not going to leave because you dont like it.
    ISIS is not made up of Muslims? That IS news. Of course it is a Muslim problem and you want to declare war on every one of them. We might as well just nuke them all now then. Why wait until they all join up against us?

    Here you go....This is what "victory" on your terms will look like.

    That's my argument exactly. Unless we deep six all the political correctness nonsense and are willing to win the war and establish peace on our terms, all we accomplish is at best for awhile a slow down of the inevitable. And we leave a truckload of resentment and vengeful spirit and in our wake along with enemies with increased resolve who have all the time in the world to plan their next moves.'

    I do not wish to expend any more of our precious blood and treasure just so we can feel righteous that we did something when in fact we accomplished little or nothing of lasting value.

    Abandon the ME to the ME.....if they cannot or will not get along, let them kill themselves off up to and including Israel nuking Arab enemies in self defense.

    It's revealing that you think any of the Muslim jihadists whose goal is to kill everyone who does not share their religious beliefs--savages who torment and then execute captured soldiers by the hundreds, decapitate innocent people, including young children, push homosexuals off tall buildings, enslave women, slaughter people just because they are Christians, and have even revived crucifixion--should be allowed to live.

    I can't imagine any target in areas overrun by jihadists that nuclear weapons would be needed to destroy. The conventional bombs of seventy years ago could kill fifty or even one hundred thousand people in a single raid, and I'm sure today's aircraft could do several times that much damage with conventional bombs.

    Of course I would favor the use of this country's nuclear weapons any time our national security required it. If there is no conceivable circumstance under which we would use them, there is no point in having them. President Kennedy was certainly prepared to use nuclear weapons in October, 1962.

    What you are saying is PC and our idiotic pop culture will mean that we need another major US attack, or a nuke on an ally, or worse before we do something. Im reminded of the left suddenly turning on Bush just before the surge.

    Maybe that will be the case, we will see-at the rate that world terrorism is growing it probably wont be long. I remember 9/11, Im ashamed at how little most Americans seem to remember about that time.

    You need to work on your reading comprehension.

    Thats what it takes to end a radical ideology, besides look at that city now.

    If we dont intervene what do you think Iraq will look like in 70 years?

    Usually it doesn't come to that, but if it does, so be it. We didn't pull our punches in Germany and Japan, and both countries that once terrorized their parts of the world have ever since been peaceful nations and good neighbors to all and an asset to the entire free world. If we are going to war with somebody, THAT should be the goal. Anything short of that is almost always going to cost more than any benefit derived from it.
