    The crusade card only works for the hijackers of Islam. Who cares if they are all killed off? ISIS soldiers aren't real Muslims, anyway, right?

    Its just unbelievable.

    Obama's incompetence or his indifference on full display as his Foreign Policy or lack there of makes for a ever increasing dangerous world.

    And the Coptic Christians beheaded over the weekend were ofcourse NOT Muslim.

    All a dangerous enemy needs to grow in power is indifference to its threat. ISIS is getting that from the very administration that gave it the freedome to fan out of Syria unchallenged

    Oh, correcting you was intended to straighten out the misconception that this originated with Obama. The Bush administration expunged all references to Islamic extremism and jihad, but the yellow back patrons are programmed to only find fault with democrats. Really useless and unproductive.

    After saying all that don't we have to look at the nations in the region. Countries like Jordan, Egypt the UAE and Saudi all have fighting forces with American arms and training. Any one, or group of these nations could take on ISIS if they want. Iran which is fighting in Syria could finish them off if they wanted to. Why should we do their dirty work?

    We once played into exactly what Osama Bin Laden wanted in response to 9/11. We should not give ISIS what they want here. We need to learn that we cannot be the policemen of the world, and brutal and evil attacks groups enact does not deserve some sort of response from us all the time.

When our inner child is abused, it's only natural that we lash out with violence. We saw much the same thing in Paris, where those mean Charlie Hebdo people invalidated Muslims everywhere by mocking the Prophet Mohammed.

    We Americans are guilty of making Muslim jihadists do violent things, too, as Mr. Obama's preacher, Jeremiah Wright, reminded us. We provoked Al Qaeda into 9/11, as he noted: "America, your chickens have come home to roost." Professor Ward Churchill also reminded Americans that we brought 9/11 on ourselves, when he noted that the people who worked at the World Trade Center were "little Eichmanns." That is, they got their comeuppance for helping the American capitalist system oppress the less developed world. I'm sure Mr. Obama, with his anti-colonial Muslim roots, agrees.

    These jihadists are people just like us. If we would all just try to understand their feelings as Muslims, and show them how nice we are, instead of acting like modern-day Crusaders, I'm sure they would want to live in harmony. But instead, just the other day, when a delegation of a couple dozen ISIS members came to the Al Asad airbase, presumably to dialogue about the misunderstandings between us, the belligerent, cowboy response was to attack and kill them! This hating and bloodshed will go on in a never-ending cycle until we Americans learn that violence never solves anything, and that an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
    Its time we embraced a foreign policy of love. Lets stop shaming these juvenile criminals and show them we care. Lets give them the emotional support they need, a hand up in life if you will. Love can do great things...

    Untrue, they see Muslims as worse-because they "should know the true god" but dont for some reason.

    This is why I lolz when people say they just hate us because we have "intervened". They hate everyone.
