    Oh, you mean the Saud and the Sunni, plus the Shia in Iraq? Since they weren't capable of doing it.....are you saying we shouldn't walk the walk when trying to get them to put people in on the ground.

    You do know.....that when Leading, sometimes it takes getting out in front. Not sitting in the back behind a desk and telling others what they need to do. When left with no other good choices. Actions speak louder than words.

    Now ISIS knows.....we are in their backyard. Just like they are in ours.

    Always better to go and kill jihadi terrorists in their own backyard, rather than wait for them to come to you.

    I don't think we should be doing this, but someone needed to do something.

    This has of course Nothing to do with a real land operation in Syria. It is simply an attack against a jihadi terrorist group. Something that is supported by the vast majority of people and legislatures throughout the world. But of course not by those who are apologists for jihadi terrorism.

    Thankfully, China and Russia do not override the foreign policy interests of the US as a solitary actor.

    The British parliament pulled their support of the notion, them folks didn't want it.
    US forces carried out the raid. What the British parliament voted upon was again a matter of international cooperation, not a permission slip for us to go it alone.

    Obama tried to get US congressional approval, those folks didn't want it.
    Congress has already authorized the use of force against ISIS. The congressional vote pertained to acitvely taking the side of Syrian separatists opposite Assad.

    70% of Americans were against it! them folks didn't want it. Other than the neocon freaks that want war everywhere, all the time, what folks want it.
    Patently false. 60 percent of Americans favor the use of force in Iraq and Syria to combat ISIS, with 4 in 10 in favor of sending ground troops (not to be conflated with commandos in a raid scenario, as depicted in the OP).

    Slightly Fewer Back ISIS Military Action vs. Past Actions

    Simply a fact-free rant of a post
