    But if ISIS does manage to recruit a few hundred members in the US, or a few thousand, how is it going to be handled? It is a military plan the President has in mind or is he going to try them in local courthouses?

    Do you think this ISIS Caliphate thing will just wear itself out, everyone will eventually come to their senses, and everything will return to pre 9/11 levels?
    Nothing will ever return to pre-911 levels if the US government has much to do with it.

    How much of a power grab has the "War on Terror" been for the U.S. over its citizens?

    How much of a power grab has terrorism been over your fellow Americans?

    Do you not see? Is nothing sacred?

    Good point. They have overreached with the assaults on legitimate travelers and have demonstrated incompetence by not securing the borders. They have also refused any 'profiling', which is the one strong area of advantage.

    I'm not sure how well a politically correct war can be fought, given that it's never happened before in human history.

    B. There is absolutely no way to do what you have described by making terrorism so ****ing undesirable that nobody would consider it. The more we meddle in their affairs, the more terrorism has become desirable....at least without committing genocide along the way.
    C. One man was able to keep terrorism from spreading in Iraq. His name was Saddam, and we decided it was time for him to go.... creating a larger terrorist problem. Similar things have happened in other nations where we got involved.... Namely Libya and Syria. Yes, I am saying that the terrorist problem in Iraq, Libya, and Syria is the result of our involvement in ousting, or attempting to oust those countries leadership.

    D. Don't even bother replying if all you are going to respond with is, "Because Obama das why" We get it, you don't like Obama, but this isn't an Obama only thing. Its a "US involved in the middle east" thing.
    No, it's an Obama military failure.

    The US has been waging a war against terror for 15 years. Obama has been in power for seven of those years. When he came into office he was fighting in two countries, left one because he said it was over and now is fighting in seven countries, with ISIS spreading and now with a stronghold in Libya where he decided the world needed regime change

    As far as deciding what I can and can't respond to, don't worry, there will be no more replies to your arrogance

    The government, any government, will never give up power easily. The bureaucrats will always defend their turf and their budgets will only increase. It'll be tough to get that genie back in the bottle.

    If it's any consolation this problem isn't exclusive to the US. Petty bureaucrats given vast powers will always come up with something new to harass innocent people. The "New World" has become too much like the Old World from which people once risked everything to escape.

    Right. And anyone who posts "Because Obama das why" is not worthy of a response.

    Terrorism has no power over me. Are you suggesting there are people who live in fear of another terrorist attack and that those of us who don't live in fear of that are somehow the ones who are wrong? Terrorism only has the power you give it.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    The US has been waging war on Drugs and Poverty for much longer.

    How well have those been working out?

    And lets face it-those are somewhat more benign. If your premise is that by becoming isolationist things will be better for Americans (despite global business and energy concerns) it might-for a very short time until those unhampered by such restraints come knocking.

    I guess if you define 'the job' as members of the Muslim community informing on the radicals for the FBI (doing the FBI's work for them) in a very few cases that are found, not in all 50 states, but in a very select few areas.... then I suppose you are correct.

    My take is a mountain being made out of a molehill. The Muslim Community is informing on radicals far more than the FBI is uncovering anything. You have to use a very loose sets of 'standards' to claim some 50 state web. (the same standard could easily claim anti-government networks of old white guys exist in all 50 states... )

    But by all means continue to rant and rail... the Mooslims are coming, the Mooslims are coming.... ride your internet ponies and alert the anti-government old white guys... they are our last best hope....
