    We're not here to discuss the origins of ISIS and the mistakes made in the past by America's leaders on the best way to handle them. We are also not here to talk about Walker's ideas on how he would take care of the murderers if he is elected.

    The only purpose of this discussion is to insult fellow posters. Get with the program.
    My bad Gill....

    I forgot winning is when you manage to call someone an asshole without actually breaking the rules.

    Last I checked it wasn't decided by polling. And like I said-get the laws changed so that only those agree have to follow and get back to me.

    Funny, its almost like you have forgotten the threads subject-that ISIS rose because of precisely a lack of US military involvement.

    So 100's of 1000's of troops for 10 years is "lack of military involvement"? More absurdity. We tried that and it failed miserably and made things worse. It is time to try something else....anything else.

    If anything.... we have lost freedoms over the pursuit of international criminals.

    The NSA is reading this as I type it, they know who you have been calling..

    before 911 you could get on a plane simply with a boarding pass...now someone has to look up your ass and check whether you have a hat pin.

    Tell the families of the 3500 plus victims of 911 that their freedoms have not been threatened, and have a face-to-face with a survivor, better yet one of the thousands of first responders.

    And tell it to the women and children in Syria and Iraq who live in abject fear of being beheaded.

    Pull your head out of the darkest place on earth and look around....in you haven't noticed, cartoonists in Paris are being slaughtered where they work....

    And, since you have such a strong "attitude" it might be well to remind you that the United States was invented through this process....no internet, they had to meet face to face usually armed in those days, and talk, debate and sometimes argue about what to do, what has been done and who did it.

    As well, the practice continues, not everywhere, just where they have governments...people represent other people and they talk, debate and sometimes argue about what was done and what should be done by whom. It is called participatory government and you would be surprised to learn that most countries, even bad, bad Cuba has that.

    And, now please prepare yourself, they often play....are you sitting?...one up man ship.

    So, for what you want, I am afraid there is no place I know of that would allow you to shout at people at length and expect them to simply listen.

    And, actually defending what you post might prevent people from laughing...

    Your assertion as far as I can tell is that ISIS would be a problem today even if we never went into Iraq and I don't think that history in anyway backs your assertion.
    Based on what?


    First your Mr. Obama aid there was no Al-Qaeda in Iraq, now he says ISIS is an offshoot.


    But does it matter? They said all was cool in Iraq, no terrorists to speak of..

    but there were, enough that we now have a war. Who gives a **** about what name they happen to be using...they are Islamic Terrorists slaughtering people in the name of Allah....

    End of story

    What you don't seem to understand is the vast majority of voters are hell bent against going into Iraq again. So we are not going to do it. You have sit here through God knows how many posts accusing the left of losing wars and basically of cowardice in the face of a threat, but your ass sure as hell is not planning on going over there to fight this war you want the United States to commit to even though you are almost certainly of fighting age and I would assume physically able.
