    I don't think anyone would consider Canadians to be war mongers or neo-conservative "chickenhawks", so I think this national poll of Canadian attitudes as it relates to ISIS and what should be done may be of interest to those who question the threat.

    Three Quarters (73%) of Canadians Support Use of Canadian Ground Troops in the War Against ISIS to Stop it From Gaining Own State | Ipsos

    Most interesting note, for me, is that a full 60% of Canadians in the 18-34 demographic, the very people who would most likely serve in our forces deployed to the region, support having Canadian ground troops in Iraq as part of a coalition effort to stop ISIS.

    It is has the Bill Clinton Afghanistan/Taliban/AQ policy feel to it. Take a few superficial but materially insignificant steps until terror hits home.

    And only then-when the politics of the situation dictate are they willing to step in.

    The left plays politics with our security every day.

    Not nearly as bad as you offering up thousands of innocents to prove your Liberal cowardice.

    Some wars can't be "won" in the traditional sense. That is a lesion that we should have learned from Viet Nam but, evidently, we don't learn so good.

    The sectarian's in the Middle East have to settle this on their own. Until they decide that they need to stop killing other people on religious grounds there will be no peace. It seems that they only way those people are going to learn is by killing each other for a year or so and then they might see that the preaching of the radicals (e.g., the Wahhabis) has no place in any religion.

    God: Thou shalt not kill

    Satan: Kill, but do it in God's name
