    When I see a German here blaming the citizens of the Middle East, or any country that they raped and vandalised in the past, for not having their **** together, I give them hell too!

    What if a solely arab coalition cant or wont fight, or is losing? Then what?
    What if?
    1.) That is a big "what if question"
    2.) IF that does happen, (which i dont think it will since of the recent gains of the Kurds in the north, the SAA in Syria, and the Iraqi army) then I think there is only one option. Cut off the head of the organization. Which I think means we should not only halt trade with the countries that have ties with ISIS, but embargo them, and cut diplomatic ties with them.

    I like most of your points except negotiation with the Assad government, Don't you think that given the weapons he has used and the brutal tactics he has been implementing that the West could possibly discredit itself by entering talks with them? Especially given the relationship they have with Russia?
    Just great watching arrogant Brits and Europeans discussing how things need to be dealt with in this place or another. Have you not done enough damage around the world for a lifetime. Maybe its time for you to sit one out, mind your god damn business and let somebody else work this out.

    Actually, your dismissal of the facts betrays your own partisanship.

    A good question is why you are against a proven strategy that has already worked in Iraq.

    Well this is a debate forum so hopefully you understand that what we are talking about has no bearing on actual events. I would honestly love to hear your strategy for ISIS though? Dem Socialist isn't someone I agree with a whole lot but he knows what he's talking about. With you however I am not so sure.

    So go on how do you want the world to handle ISIS?

    That is a big what if-the situation would depend on it-and right now I dont see any arabs stepping up to defend it. How many more should die in the mean time.

    How do you cut off its head when its designed to operate independently if need? Did you seriously just suggest we cut off trade with nations that have ties with them? We are long past soft measures-they believe they are restoring the caliphate.

    My view isn't based in fear, its based in logic.
