    Nope. Do some research. ISIS was forming long before that.

    You need to go back a bit further. ISIS formed from members of Al Qaeda in Iraq, a group that was started to kill Americans in Iraq. Who sent those Americans to Iraq?

    Probably older then you, son. Eisenhower was president when I was born. I did not suggest that no republican has ever lied. My point is that no republican made up yarns as wild as to: "I dodged sniper fire in Bosnia" and "daughter Chelsea was jogging around the wtc towers when they were hit"....or "We were stone broke when leaving the White House".

    By 2009 the groups that became ISIS had been defeated and were in check in Iraq. The Syrian uprising degenerated into stalemate when the first wave of moderate opposition went unsupported in early 2012. Extremists took over that conflict, and with the departure of US forces from Iraq in 2011 Iraqi forces were significantly enfeebled.

    That's terrible, you should know better then. When Nixon told us, "your president is not a crook", that was a really good one

We should never have gone in there in the first place and we will be paying the price for the next several decades as a result.
    Perhaps if you try a bit harder, you can get a point. If we had left a contingent of troops behind in Iraq, 10,000, perhaps 20,000, as we have done in most other wars where we have spilled so much blood, ISIS never would have gained a foothold. I really don't care whether you think we should have went into Iraq or not. Politicians make those choices. The point is that if we get into a war, especially one involving regime change, we should stick around long enough to make sure the military we leave behind can take care of business.

    The Nazis were not all that organized or capable in the beginning either. There were many opportunities to quash the Nazi movement before it became powerful. I suggest you read the history.

    I suggest you quite comparing everything to Nazis and Hitler.

    That was obviously a lie by Nixon....however it still does not rise to the hilarity of "I dodged sniper fire in Bosnia". Nixon was a crook. Hillary needs to check into a funny farm. Get the point?

    Yeah....I know. You are embarrassed by the similarities between Neville Chamberlain and your leader, huh?
