    So Obama made ISIS? I do think that the US indirectly had a hand in it, we destablilzed the region and haven't brought to an end 14 years of armed conflict yet, and so we're making prime terrorist breeding environments; but still I wouldn't hold Bush or Obama responsible for the terrorists. And there's likely credible threats that we could have debate or concern on, this threat is just some ramblings of crazy people and won't see the light of day.

    You mean, why cannot ISIS behead POTUS?

    It would be tough, but one of the best protections around POTUS is the point that it is nigh on impossible to get him and get away with it. You will die / get taken out in the course of the attack.

    If that doesn't bother you, I imagine, things become easier.

    The region is already instable. Blaming the US for that is as intellectually vacuous as blaming Iran or blaming the Ottomans.

    Parts of it were bad, Iraq wasn't as bad from this perspective as it now is. We've certainly exacerbated the situation.

    I mean, yeah, we didn't start this fire; but we have thrown fuel on it.

    Mornin' Ikari. No BO didn't make them.....he is a major cause of why they morphed into what they are. His narrative was AQ was on the run. After the hit on BL. The whole time he kept touting Yemen and what he was doing to AQAP. Who were designated the most dangerous of the branches. Which their connection was to AQ Prime and the Z-Man.

    To top it off another of AQ prime then went and started the Ansar al Sharia branch. Which spread from Yemen to Libya.

    AQIL lived on and then became ISIL. From there we know the rest.


    I doubt to many even think they have a chance. But should they ever get a chance.....and make an attempt. Then they will surely discover just what it means......by ZERO Tolerance.

    I would be interested in hearing what some Americans think - if one of the First Family somehow happened to be kidnapped by ISIS, would a ransom be paid for their release and if so, to what extent would it go?
    If that did happen, I am sure the ransom would be paid but we wouldn't know anything about it. It would be another one of those state secrets so the government could keep up the facade of not negotiating with terrorists.

    How do you come to your opinion from the OP?

    I think we've pushed the region further down the path to eventual stability. It's just a bloody path to get there.

    An excellent read for those who argue that autocracy creates stability. It does. In the short term.
