    each situation is separate and distinct... you'll have to come up with a better reason why we shouldn't help people fight ISIS.

    One thing for sure is Isis needs to be stopped. I just read today they have captured Coptic Christians in Egypt for their next victims. Of course Egypt recently has come out against terrorist activity so it is no surprise that the next captives would be from Egypt. Go against the terrorists, your citizens will be on the nightly news of the next decapitated, crucified, or burned alive victim. These yahoos need to have the sand they are standing on pounded to glass. There is a faction of Islam gone mad and every Arab country, Western country, Israel, who calls them out will be targets until they are stopped. There is a another factor being played here and that is Iran seems to be the one who is gaining power through terrorists it funds.

    Right, just dismiss failed US foreign policy, and do some more.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    LOL.....God bless the guy that created the mess we are in the first place? God bless the man that manipulated public fear after 911 to "justify" Cheney/Rumsfield decades old desire to attack Iraq?

    No....God bless the thousands of US soldiers that died as a result of Bush's lies. God bless their families. And God Bless all of us that we don't repeat the same mistakes with the ignorance that created even more instability in the region.

    No....we don't need any more of GWB's involvement in Iraq.

    I have no issue with troops providing training, air support and such.
    But the problem of ISIL needs to be addressed.
    Then afterwards, the Govts have to change. Iraq policy under the past Shia PM gave ISIL what they wanted. Sunni's who had been targeted by the govt, from targeted to mass killings by Shia Militia, who are not under full control of the govt, but who have turned a blind eye.
    Corruption, show trials, Iraq as I mentioned on another thread is ripe for splitting along religious/ethnic lines- And the Kurds will lead the way.

    Sisi in Egypt while fighting terrorists, the Egyptian Govt like Iraq created the very same conditions for terrorists recruitment.
    We have seen how the courts act in Egypt- mass show trials, hundreds at a time sentenced to death. And what effect does that have, more recruitment for terror groups.
    Those that were past leaders, have been cleared of all corruption charges. Egypt is just another basket case in the ME.

    Oh puh-lease. How dare YOU mention our brave troops when you don't give a rats ass that your hero used them as pawns in his little war games. How dare YOU feign your respect for our troops when you spit on the freedoms that they fought and died for and willingly give them up for a false sense of security.

    Words are cheap. Actions speak volumes. You can claim your 'support" for our troops but that claim is hollow when you are willing to send them off to die for a lie.

    By the way....the war was never "won" there. There never truly was a "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED". GWB created chaos in the region without recognizing what would happen when he and his neo-con bed buddies were done. ISIS has risen as a DIRECT result of the destabilization in the region caused by Bush's originally failed policies. You can try to blame Obama all you want, but the buck stops with the Bush administration on this one friend.
