    Uh Oh, here we are with our "lefty talk" again.

    You fight until the war is won, not until liberals cry thats uncle.
    The more of them we kill, the more of them we make.

    Our prolonged presence and meddling in the affairs of the Middle East is what has grown this problem.

    This is their meme.

    Now, let's send some ground forces and search for IED's and swat some flies, we have the money to oil our military machine, and young people looking for combat experience, if we don't then we'll just reinstate the draft and make 'em go.

    I would disagree that what is going on in the Middle East is a serious threat to our National security.

    Anyone at any time can conspire to commit a terrorist act upon U.S. Soil....... claiming that they are more likely to do it because xyz does not justify our constant involvement in Middle East affairs..... involvement that has allowed us to turn others over to their cause in the first place.

    Hmm. OK. Thanks for the link.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    There's a difference between a stable and reenforced with US troops Iraq and one that's been abandoned due to lack of SoF.
    There was never a stable Iraq after we ousted Saddam and there never could be as long as we stayed there and played nursemaid. The same is true today. Stability of a nation comes from within.

    Sounds good to me, as long as we can eliminate U.S. meddling in foreign affairs.
