    ISIS and Iran are closer related than you might think-Iran has its hands all over the ME, even if its fighting ISIS.

    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Especially with Obama trying to cozy up like an ally to Iran.

    For starters, Obama needs to change course. Recognizing the problem and stopping the digging would be a start.

    That has worked so well for you in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan etc. may as well continue doing it. America isn't tired of fighting a war, their tired of losing wars. One day, and hopefully soon, a real commander in chief will arrive and teach these vermin whores some humility.

    There was a terrorist gang once who got their jollies shoving a Jewish American overboard from the ship they had pirated. A guy by the name of Gaddafi thought he'd give America the finger too and gave them safe passage. Some time later, US bombers out of England dropped some serious ordinance on where Gaddafi had been a few hours earlier, they destroyed his home and killed his adopted son. Mr. Gaddafi remained humble for about 20 years after..

    That was a president universally despised by the American left today. But, you know what? Ronald Reagan never had to apologize to anyone and American was one **** of a lot safer then than it is today. I would suggest at this point, that after 15 years and no progress, that going scorched earth and destroying their ability to make war is now in order.

    So if we can't pin a nuke on them, we'll blame the Islamic State on them, whatever it takes to do another pre-emptive war.

    Right, because Iran feels like an ally and all with Obama telling lies about them, and enforcing sanctions on them, and giving Bibi bunker buster to strike them with.
