    Now why would I need to freak out where I proved you lied. Like BO Peep.
    I was right on Ebola and you were wrong...

    Secondly you didn't answer my question, you made a "no ****" statement of "It would take a force of an Army".

    Yeah... I asked how many troops and how many are you willing to lose... got an answer to that one champ.

    Two influential senators are calling on President Barack Obama to send more U.S. ground troops to hotspots around the Middle East.

    The suggestion by Republican John McCain and Democrat Dianne Feinstein is a direct challenge to the president, who has said he doesn’t want to increase the U.S. military presence in Yemen despite the deteriorating security condition in that country.

    Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, says the U.S. needs more human intelligence in the region and to not rely so heavily on intelligence gathered by technical means.....snip~

    Good morning MMC,

    Yemen is an interesting case. If I'm not mistaken, the President and Prime Minister in Yemen were opposed by those who challenged US interference in the country including US drone strikes and other anti-al Qaeda operations sanctioned by the Yemeni leadership. I also understand that while this small band of insurgents has taken over some of the government buildings and sites, those supportive of the President and the US have been protesting this opposition move.

    If the above is accurate, seems to me that the old Pottery Barn analogy is relevant once again - if you break it, you own it. If the US has become too meddlesome in Yemen to the extent that there is a kind of civil war brewing, the US has an obligation to try to make things right.

    That's still doesn't change the fact that you lied while being partially Right.

    It depends on the strategy and tactics used. As that is what it would take. But then you want answers to specifics not knowing how many in Mosul are there supporting them or not knowing how many. So save your BS tangent.

    Its called a military strategy. That which a Military staff deals with. Note how it isn't just one man that brings the answers.

    You able to figure that out.....yet?

    You cant possibly believe that the US couldn't wipe out ISIS if it committed the forces.

    Mornin CJ. Kind of hard to protest with its Parliament surrounded and held captive and their President quitting and being held captive and or in hiding. Johnny quest McCain is no surprise that he would call for Special Forces to be sent to Yemen. But now Feinstein directly challenging BO is another story.

    It would be very difficult. Straight up army vs army battle, sure. But this isn't a straight up army vs army battle.

    The US took those towns once. They can do it again. But I was speaking to the point that ISIS Wanted a land battle with US forces. I don't see why they would want that

    Feinstein is bat**** crazy and falling into full dementia now that she's lost her power and chairmanship. I expect her to show up on Capital Hill in her bathrobe and curlers one day soon, trying to find her kitty cat.
