    Absolutely not. Plenty of streams are still running. However, the EPA and local health departments won't let anyone use streams for potable water anymore. It's better that you should die of thirst than a possible pathogen, however unlikely. Besides, you can get beer with an EBT card.

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 23 — A stark assessment of terrorism trends by American intelligence agencies has found that the American invasion and occupation of Iraq has helped spawn a new generation of Islamic radicalism and that the overall terrorist threat has grown since the Sept. 11 attacks.

    The war in Iraq has become a primary recruitment vehicle for violent Islamic extremists, motivating a new generation of potential terrorists around the world whose numbers may be increasing faster than the United States and its allies can reduce the threat, U.S. intelligence analysts have concluded.

    Spy Agencies Say Iraq War Hurting U.S. Terror Fight
    From your link: ". . . Officials with knowledge of the intelligence estimate said it avoided specific judgments about the likelihood that terrorists would once again strike on United States soil. . . ."

    1. No NIE can ever estimate how safe the US is because that would require assessment of US countermeasures -- out of bounds for an NIE.
    2. By 2009 those terrorists in Iraq had been defeated.

    You are correct. He cannot ever be seen in a negative light or having been wrong. On top of that he is way thin skinned...look at the dust up over Netanyahu...it's all about a two year old perceived insult.

    This guy does not get over resentments.
    He's far too immature and spiteful to get over things and actually lead his nation.
    Just what we need in a POTUS.

    He could commit, and he could lead.

    Yes the hatred of Christians and Jews in Egypt is nothing new. They would be found murdered, their homes, businesses and places of worship torched. And no one seemed to know who did it. As far as we know this group of Christians that were kidnapped in Libya could have been on a mission journey for all we know. It really isn't safe for any Western or Christian, Jew or a person from a country who is friends with the West to be traveling in that part of the world because they have a target on their backs. These people are sheer evil.

    This is why I want them dead-ISIS isn't something that can be reasoned with-their ideology is fundamentally at odds with western values, and life is cheap to them.

    I dont want to see anyone killed-but they need to be.

    Thats all it is. Bush derangement syndrome is apparently a chronic disease.

    I got one laughably naive argument-burying your head in the sand. Ironically ISIS also wants to bury your head in the sand.
