    Well one does have to have a starting point. I was looking more at the point of ISIS and their supporters being driven from the city. As that can be done.

    Do you think with what Sisi of Egypt is saying and getting their Holymen out and about might be part of the solution? Especially after the enemy is driven off and will conduct their suicide bombings.

    So you think it is more difficult for 5 or 6 Armies than one. That the odds don't get easier? Except where do they go when surrounded. Since it is much easier to surround an enemy with more than one Army.

    Nobody wants war-but some things are worth fighting for. Even a high ranking lefty senator (mine) is calling for them.

    If you haven't figured it out yet-ISIS isn't going away and the lefts politicians appear tired of hiding behind partisan dogma.

    1. assume IS is eliminated. what then?

    2. how much more are you willing to pay in taxes to fund the perpetual war? a dollar amount will be fine.

    A high-ranking Neo Con Democratic Senator.
    Or haven't you figured that out by now?

    Along with the Neo Con Menendez.

    Apparently DEMs can think for themselves on the issues of the day, versus marching goose-step as GOPs do.

    And tell us, why do you continue to accuse the President of supporting terrorism for PERSONAL reasons .

    Far left extremist fruit loops throwing Menedez and Feinstein under the bus for daring to go against Obama-messiah.

    Gee... didn't see that coming.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
