And no-we aren't winning. If we were winning the "JV" team wouldn't control half of Iraq, and still growing. If we were "winning' our president wouldn't be going with the only option that is pure fail-airstrikes. Either go in and kill them, or dont. But dont wander around in between.
You either have a disney channel understanding about how things are going or are being disingenuous. Or both.
‘The Highest Threat Level We Have Ever Faced"
Is near total ignorance of history a requirement before one can reach high positions within the GOP?
From his words, one just might come to believe the representative had never heard of the Soviet Union and the Cold War. An enemy with thousands of nuclear weapons, ICBMs and a large military was probably, not saying positively but probably, just a wee bit higher on the threat level tree than a group of Islamic radicals.
Not going back to find it but the post in which a commenter says Iran is supporting the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan "to stop ISIS from expanding to the East" reveals not only an ignorance of geography but also Muslim religions.
“And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822
because an 'expert' said so... the highest threat level we have ever faced ...
despite our population being able to see the current threat is MUCH less than we have encountered MANY times before
it is recognized that you cannot value your credibility to then conceive and present such an absurd thread topic
