    You fight until the war is won, not until liberals cry thats uncle.
    Except YOU won't be doing the fighting only the tough talk. Talk is cheap. The reality is that until we allow the people that live in the ME to fight their own wars it will never end. There are armies surrounding ISIS right now but instead you suggest that we should come halfway around the world and fight instead of them. How smart is that?

    So if if the Militant Islamic Fundamentalists only kill 3,000 innocent civilians on US soil say once every 15 years, then that would be OK? We should just absorb those infrequent losses, and carry on?

    Somehow I don't think that's what you are really saying. Or is it?

    **** happens, and it's going to continue to happen, regardless of what we do in the middle east. I suspect that it's our actions in the middle east that tends to provoke it.
    True. Nut jobs are going to do terrible things and potentially hut or kill many people. But you don't 'deal' with cancer by letting it grow larger and more powerful. Earlier is better.

    Which part of the constitution says that we should be "enforcing the no fly zones...in Iraq"?

    And we wonder why those people hate us so much.
    If we were gassing a kurdish minority, would anyone blame those enforcing the no-fly zone protecting them?

    You said Iraq didn't attack us. Our forces (with the UK and France) were under daily assault, while under the terms of a cease fire. The 1991 gulf war never really ended. Saying "Iraq never attacked us" is just painfully wrong.

    When does anyone but the military do the fighting? And since when do they decide when to go to war?

    You are right about one thing-lefty talk is quite cheap. Dont you have a UN resolution to push?

    Indeed. And a ceasefire isnt peace-youve just stopped firing. We would have been justified going back in at any time.

    Just look at these saber rattlers anxious and chomping at the bit to get embroiled in some other country's battles. Just goes to show the anti war people just how far they'd go to spill more American blood. Gotta keep America's was machine well greased and oiled.

    There's never a "requirement" to do the right thing. People have avoided doing the right thing throughout history, usually with less than desirable results. As Obamacarefail noted, governments avoided doing the right thing in the lead up to WW2 - nothing required them to do so.
