    When the public doesn't take it seriously eventually the government will reflect that.... and you get random dudes showing up in the East Wing, or dinner parties.
    ....yeah, that's going to happen alright

Like we have been saying for this entire failed Presidency.
    And that is exactly the point.

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.
    Obama absolutely did-what we see as ISIS today exits because he did not follow his staff's warnings, he ceded Iraq to them, and only now that thousands have died and millions have been displaced or are living under them in fear is he acting-and even then only piecemeal.

    And thats the military math we need to come to grips with. Wars are not fought based on a calendar-we are in this for the long haul, weather we like it or not.

    You know what this thread screams to me?

    Neocons are pushing this nonsense (like anyone reasonable takes these whackos seriously) to try to scare people into more tax money for the military AND more laws that allows the U.S. government to spy on anyone it wants (including Americans).

    They know American conservatives dont play that. They are trying to intimidate liberals into going home. Under the left, our enemies and adversaries are emboldened.

    Wars are fought to be won, not based on the amount of time it will take.

    I mean, I think in general the war efforts have been mishandled and poorly planned and there is no real goal other than forever war. But I don't think Obama made ISIS, the war effort led to an environment that plays well into terrorist propaganda and recruiting and they've done just that.

    For reasonable time frames, but war cannot be supported forever and we'll just spend ourselves into collapse if we don't plan things out, make and end game, and get there. Infinity war is not a good thing.
