"Small people talk about people, average people talk about events, great people talk about ideas" Eleanor Roosevelt
we are involved in Iraq... this isn't a case of being completely extricated and going back in.. we never left....
Iraq is supportive of our help in defeating ISIS... hell, there's an entire coalition of allies who all want to fight them....
the question of whether to not we will fight ISIS has already been answered... it's been decided in the affirmative.... the only questions remaining are on strategy and tactics.
thus far, we have no strategy regarding ISIS....we have a goal, and we are employing tactical air strikes.... that's it.
I'd agree that ISIS is losing momentum... but I would not argue it's losing ground.... it had both losses and gains
containment is simply not a goal of the US or of any of the allied coalition members....that's just the reality.
as for who we lend support to and we we do not, that's a tough question and it's a valid point that some of those whom would be allied in the fight against ISIS are not our true allies and in fact commit atrocities.... such are the realities of this world... it's hard to navigate such complexities, but it's not an excuse to surrender the field.
in any event , it is my position that groups such as ISIS and Boko Haram should be eradicated from the earth..... as should such regimes as North Korea , etc.
I find no moral validity in allowing them to exist.
Here is the actual text from the incident you are referring to:
KATIE COURIC (co-host): Since being elected to office, New York's junior senator, Hillary Rodham Clinton, managed to keep a relatively low profile until terror struck in lower Manhattan. At that moment, she was not just a senator, but a concerned parent. She recently sat down with "Dateline NBC's" Jane Pauley to talk about that morning.
PAULEY: Tuesday morning, Senator Hillary Clinton's first thought when the second plane hit was terrorists. Her next thought was Chelsea, who was not only in New York, but staying downtown.
CLINTON: She'd gone, what she thought would be just a great jog. She was going to go down to Battery Park, she was going to go around the towers. She went to get a cup of coffee and -- and that's when the plane hit.
PAULEY: She was close enough to hear the rumble.
CLINTON: She did hear it.
PAULEY: And to see the smoke in person, not on television.
Those damn pesky facts tripping you up again!
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
