    Okay, disregard the jobs statement. What is he doing to end this scummy group of evil misfits from doing anything further? And now Boko Haram has joined in? The group that kidnapped 300 young schoolgirls that nobody seemed to be able to find? WTH? :

    How about a consistent policy? How about being honest with Americans, and at least, one of you apologists once SHOW where the US has made one INCH of progress under Obama.

    In closing, if you want to have a discussion and not troll with useless bull****, explain where Obama has in any of the seven countries he is bombing and killing he has made progress at all.

    and explain how it is he had one war, had "ended" another and now there are seven America is involved in and four OTHER countries ISIS has now gained a stronghold.

    If that is how you figure a war on terror should be fought, and I will ask the Canadian Women's hockey team to pinch hit for you.

    I am so mollified that as the United States is on Yellow alert for terrorists and has been for 15 years, that we are safer than we were when Reagan bombed Libya......

    These guys are nuts, just ****ing whacko nuts, off the reservation and drinking gasoline nuts...
    The point of posting the video was to show the difference between Kerry's take and Clapper's take. They are complete opposites. But is that any different than having Kerry pledging support to Nigeria with their fight against Boko Haram aka ISIS, the president making eloquent speeches saying the same, and even had Michelle in on the act with her hashtag "Bring back our girls" but then have the president of Nigeria, heads of state claim this administration has not helped with much of anything on all fronts. Israel answers their request for helicopters and this administration stopped it. Now Boko Haram is out of control and no doubt being funded by ISIS.

    I bet you under all the suits in this administration, you will find a lot of tie dyed tee shirts with peace symbols. We have 611 more days of this crap.

    You mean like in Kobani, where US airstrikes helped Kurdish and rebel forces not only beat back a months-long siege but also retake almost everything that was lost in the canton? Or in Iraq, where airstrikes have similarly allowed allied forces to retake Sinjar and to prepare for offensives on Tikrit and Mosul? This is precisely the best thing that we can do short of a ground war (which I don't necessarily think should be off the table).

    I think it's scandalous that the United States continues to commit about 30,000! servicemen--many of them ground troops-- in South Korea. And this American warmongering has been going on for more than sixty years now! What if fighting ever broke out there--the U.S. would be involved in a ground war in Asia!

    Just imagine that the bloodthirsty right-wingers wanted to a similar force, even if only about half this size, in Iraq! That's what the military-industrial complex and big oil wanted too, and they probably would have done it, if President Obama hadn't saved the day. This horrible country has got to stop picking fights all over the globe. We have to realize that these "Moozelims" that all those Amurrican yahoos who cling to their guns and Bibles love to demonize are folks, just like us. I'm sure that if we only tried to be kinder and more understanding toward them, we would live together in peace. We are creating the extremists--they are only acting out their anger and frustration with U.S. interference in their affairs.

    We're done. I'm sick of your attitude.

    I agree, but how are they to do that - they're victims being terrorized, and they don't have the arms we're apparently giving to their bragging laughing oppressors, Kobie! What a crock!

    The information I have suggests that your evaluation of U.S. progress against these people is overly sanguine.

    Do you deal in anything other than moronic strawmen?
