    You can't continue to be at war with a religious ideology..... that can only end in genocide....or never end at all.

    We should destroy Isis, if I was younger I would go fight with the Kurds.

    Yes, yes, its always just the failure to enter into yet more wars that causes these terrorists groups to get safe havens. When have we heard that before? I believe it would have been back in 2002 with the run up to the war in Iraq. I wonder how many wars we need to get involved in to keep these terrorists from getting those "safe havens". Let's do the warmonger math:

    1. Syria
    2. Libya
    3. Yemen
    4. Nigeria
    5. Iran (nuclear ambitions you know)
    6. Pakistan

    So we would have at least those countries for a start.

    Can you explain how it would have been within our right to take action in Syria when Syria was already taking action in Syria?

    The Asad regime was a principal arms supplier and sponsor of the terror group Hezbollah, and the forward base of Iran's projection of influence in the Middle East. It's demise was distinctly in our interest but our failure to provide timely support to Syrian rebels (with not a single pair of US boots on the ground) led to the stalemate in which ISIS a was able to take root.

    They have more, and the war is not our choice. They are at war with us.

    None of those would require US combat forces.

    Some victory that was. Oust one sectarian dictator and enemy of Iran and install another sectarian dictator who was a puppet of Iran. What could possibly go wrong?

    Really? How do you figure? In all those cases the government is either so corrupt and ineffectual that terrorism thrives there or the government's support the terrorist organizations. So how would you deal with them without engaging in some sort of regime change? For example, lets say we start napalming Boku Haram's jungle hideouts, do you honestly think that Goodluck Jonathan will all of a sudden give up his corrupt ways that allowed a group like Boku Haram to thrive there in the first place?
