    Because it is the exact same stuff we have been hearing since 9-11. Gotta keep that fear primed.

    Come no, US Conservative. Surely you're not suggesting that anti-American sentiments from radical Muslims only started the day President Obama was sworn into office?

    A weak president has allowed terror to flourish and in fact ceded a nation to the most violent terrorists in modern history. In Afghanistan he is doing the same, as AQ surrounds cities and Iran pours in more, licking their chops for the last Americans to leave-Obama has let them know its theirs.
    So, your solution seems to be on par with Senators McCain and Graham...to leave a "permanent" residual force behind in both countries. Why do people still believe that only the American military has the know-how to police the other countries as if they are incapable of ever looking after their own national security. By your condemnation of post-9/11 war actions, are you suggesting that we have demilitarized zones in every country where we declare a war over like in Vietnam?

    China and Russia are emboldened. And "JV" ISIS continues to grow, striking already in the US, and now subjecting Americans to the greatest threat level we have ever faced from terrorists.

    This is what hope and change looks like folks.


    "Hope and Change" had nothing to do with foreign policy matters.

    As to China and Russia becoming more emboldened, both countries just happen to be "smelling themselves" these days as their economies get stronger. In Russia's case, they see smaller nations as places they can exploit. I don't see this as weakness on our President's part. It's not like he can just make China or Russia to stop their aggressive or provocative actions. But just because he can't force their hands doesn't mean he's done nothing to make them think twice about what they're doing.

    Not about fear but vigilance. You may not like it but we are fighting a war, I'd hope it does not take another mass murder for you to appreciate that fact.

    My assertion is that under Obama's foreign policy (whatever that is, let alone a doctrine) terrorism has flourished, and the most radical terror group in modern history now has a defacto state. To say it terror is unique to the chump in chiefs swearing in is a straw man.

    When you fight a war, you don't fight it to lose. Obama opposed the surge (which worked) and then ceded Iraq to terrorists, dismissing the threat as it happened in front of the world, leaving us where they are.

    Wars are not won by telling your enemy when you are leaving-you fight them until they are won. A residual force to maintain peace, as we have in Germany or Japan is appropriate historically, and militarily. Wars are won by committing to winning them-not by losing them for politics or committing to the only response that will fail-airstrikes. Men must hold the territory. Airstrikes only keep the enemy unified against you. Its a policy of failure.

    As you read this, the taliban and AQ are pouring into Afghanistan to do the same thing. Supported by Iran as a proxy to prevent eastward movement of ISIS. So the policy of failure is repeated.

    As for Russia and China, the history of geopolitical politics suggests otherwise. This is why history is so important to study.

    I believe "Stars and bars" is the correct nickname.

    What terror threat? I know that the FBI is working overtime to quell any possible plans from home grown IS sympathizer terrorist before Independence Day.
    They've found what? Two guys that have posted crap on facebook. I don't feel threatened.

    So the committee chair, who has much more info than you probably ever will, says we are at the highest threat level ever, but based on how you feel, its no big deal.

    Obama's too busy dreaming up new ways to politicize a mass murder to be concerned with ISIS right now.

    Michelle Bachmann was on that committee and she said there was a secret Muslim infiltration at the highest levels of government.
