    There is opposing evil on your own doorstep and there is crapping on your own doorstep. When you do the latter, you tend to step in it.

    Yes, never point out the evil within, that makes one a traitor right.

    There is nothing traitorous about it. Its just that no one will take you seriously. But that's your problem.

    No one, hmm. I've seen others here pointing out the same thing. Many of them before I was here.

Of course, the fact that ISIS rolled in from the west didn't help either.



    So nothing short of sending in regular american combat troops qualifies as "going in to fight and win" then?

    True enough, even in Libya the West needed AQ boots on the ground.
