    On ‘Face the Nation,’ Senators Feinstein, McCain Call For More U.S. Troops In M.E.

    Well whaddya know.....Diane Feinstein with McCain are out publicly challenging BO and his mental issues of his ideology. This is indeed a good day to Start a Monday. Another Democrat telling BO how he has got it wrong. What say ye?




    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~

    I think there are only two rational approaches. Either we should have no troops in the middle east at all or we should have enough with a mission to destroy ISIS within a few months. To me anything else, including what we are doing and throwing more troops at the problem without the will to destroy ISIS, is political and irrational.

    I agree. No troops in the Middle East. Tell them to pack their bags--they're goin' home.

    So how does that get rid of the problem of AQ and ISIS? As it clear those in the M.E are not competent enough to resolve the problem on their own. Not counting Israel that is.

    Heya FMW. I think you are Right. Time to treat the problem with seriousness.

    I think when the enemy is goading you into direct combat... you need to re-think whether it's worth it.

    ISIS wants a ground war with Americans.

    Don't give it to them if you can help it.

    Or leave the problem to someone else. Our current approach just angers me (and ISIS.)

    Do they? Why would anyone want that?

    It is clear they have no intention of trying as long as they can rely like clockwork on sucking our troops in to die in their stead. ISIS is not a US problem--we just make it one by being a buttinski

    That's an interesting statement. How is it clear that (for example) Jordan and Saudi Arabia do not intend to try to defeat ISIL?

    yeah. Because it's not like they would ever seek to launch attacks in the west, or expand to take over a global key vulnerability.



    ISIL is absolutely a problem for the US. We like our nice, happy, first-world lifestyle and the global system of trade upon which it depends.
