    "These threats"? Threats to whom?

    It's called reality. We either have serious threat to our national security or not. If we do.....we should do whatever it takes to handle it....even if it means boots on the ground. As for sending our youth off to battle....that pretty much how it's always been done...unless you think it's viable to send middle aged and senior citizens to the front lines. The use of the term "chicken hawk" is small minded and cowardly.

    You fight until the war is won, not until liberals cry thats uncle.
    Exactly. World War 2 occurred largely because the rest of the world appeased Hitler rather then confronting him early on.

    Where in the constitution does it say we should defend Iraq or Syria with American lives? Where does it say that we should fund the defense of Iraq or Syria?

    I'm betting that if the terrorists start regularly attacking us on American soil, you would be among the first to scream: "Why didn't we stop them overseas?!"

    If you, as an individual, see fit that you should support the defense of Iraq, you are welcome to defend Iraq.

    But until the defense of Iraq is requires in the US constitution, it's not my problem.

    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.
    Most Canadians and Americans understand that ISIS would not stop at having it's own state. They are spreading like a cancer in many third world nations. The only thing that will stop them is force.

    If that is what your government chooses do do, then have at it.

    The US constitution certainly doesn't provide for any requirement for the US to defend Iraq.

    So....can I assume that you are against everything the US Constitution does not require? Let's eliminate the massive entitlement system. Let's eliminate obamacare.
