    So it looks like ISIS can't be stopped anymore. While Obama was too busy with helping Kurds to fight for their independence from Iraq and Syria jihadists captured some important settlements and towns in Libya. ISIS is spreading around like cancer and it seems like nothing can stop them anymore since it doesn't look like they have a central authority. And now they are heading towards Europe en masse pretending to be refugees. Is there any possible way to stop them?
    It's not Obama; that's the first point. Our country is SICK of warring and this situation is exactly the same as Vietnam as it now stands. So, it's the US public that is deciding how the president acts with this. Obama is trying to play this out in a way that keeps US (and our kids) at arms length, in an effort I think to draw in some of the local nations to spend their resources defending their own region. The EU has decided to take offensive steps on the Libyan trafficking; which is a great way to smuggle terrorists into Europe BTW. I think that Obama just isn't tipping his hand because he can't get the local players to agree yet. Moreover, the Saudis are up to their necks in sponsoring ISIS so I'm sure that has a great deal to do with it.

    Now, I will very much agree with the idea of urgency, because quite frankly I see no difference between ISIL's movements and Blitzkrieg. Having said that, ISIS is said to be rattling their swords toward Europe ala The Moors, and in my mind, I wish they would cross and try some of that so that the western world can just put a quick end to this crap.

    Yes it is.

    The public by a wide margin says the United States does not have a responsibility to do something about the fighting between government forces and anti-government groups in Libya. And while opinion is divided over enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya, this view is undercut by the fact that Americans overwhelmingly oppose bombing Libyan military air defenses.

    During the two decades since U.S. and Coalition forces liberated Kuwait, a robust US presence -- military and civilian -- has become virtually a fixture in Kuwait. This posture has been encouraged by a welcoming host government that has seen its own long-term security linked to a significant USG presence, particularly on the military side.

    It figures that you would think destroying a country is doing the right thing.

    Yea I guess you have a point, we are having a lot of problems with KUWAIT right now.

    Do you even think before you post?

    It figures that you think liberating a country is destroying it. ISIS is destroying Iraq, not us. Perhaps pick up a newspaper from time to time.
