    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.
    Which lie would that be?

    Do you have an example of that working? How does one destroy religious extremism of pandemic proportions?

    I read this and weep..



    ...as it tells me that the Obama administration has no intentions of defeating ISIS, the military's hands are tied and there is no goal
    That may be so...

    but, suppose the CIC does it right this time, gets a declaration of war from Congress (fat chance) and goes against ISIS and wipes it out, along with Al Qaeda in Yemen, then what?

    Who will take over the Mid East if the US does wipe out ISIS?

    If, on the other hand, the nations with the most to lose, i.e., those who are currently fighting ISIS, prevail, then it won't be an American victory, but a Mid East victory.

    It is tempting to put a quick end to the fighting in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen and stop ISIS in its tracks, but is that even possible? What would be the ultimate result?

    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.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2006/09/24/wo...anted=all&_r=0
    And they are/were part of the problems with the rise of Islamic terrorists. Just as Saudi is involved in the Syrian civil war.
    I wonder what the redacted documents from the 911 commission state regarding Saudi involvement in 911. BO promised to make them public. How is that doing?
    Did I state invasion, nope.
    They need help to train, then the problem it is theirs to address. Otherwise it spreads like a fungus.
    Including stopping the killings by the Shia Militias, the casting out of all Sunni’s in Iraq.
    Syria- how did the west start that mess? Assad was massacring civilians.
    The Govts. are corrupt, subjecting minorities to a number of human rights violations.
    That would be another cause.
    Then throw in the approx 1500 year war between Shia/Sunni.
    I will be glad when we can all rid ourselves of any involvement in the ME/ Africa.

    Basically they are as crazy as a **** house rat with hate to start with.

    Pick one. The whole lead up to the invasion of Iraq was nothing more than lies and manipulation. Cheney/Rumsfield and Bush in a pawn role, say the opportunity to exploit the public fear after 9/11. They preyed on the weak and got the war that they had sought for decades. It was all based on lies and deceit. Then again....I suspect that you probably still buy the whole "mission accomplished" rhetoric.

    Democrats claimed Saddam had WMD and had intentions to go Nuclear before Bush ever stepped into the White House.

    Not to mention they voted FOR the Iraq resolution.
    The left desperately wants us to forget about all of that.

They needed a pawn in the whitehouse....someone with the intelligence of a thimble and they got that in GWB. It shows very clearly the media barrage that occurred after 911 where the Bush administration layed the groundwork to "justify" the Iraq invasion, linking it rather tenuously to 911.
    But...I don't know why I'm wasting my time. People like you will continue to believe what you want to believe. "Mission Accomlished".....right?
