    Getting rid of ISIS will take not just a strong leader, but one who pays attention to detail and works out what the unintended consequences may be. Take the idea of wiping ISIS out, for example. Like taking out Saddam Hussain, it would leave a power vacuum. Who would fill that vacuum?
    Yep. Taking out Hussein was a cake walk, it required taking on his uniformed and visible army sorely inadequate to protect and defend him against the US military. The cost of civilian lives for the US to neutralize the Islamic state in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Tunisia, Egypt and wherever else they are operating will be indefensible, the world won't stand for it. It is my opinion that USFP in the ME that both the Bush and Obama administrations are responsible for, is quite possibly a Jeanie that can't be put back in the bottle, that is going to continue to grow, and is going to be a far FAR greater problem then Hussein, Mubarak, Gaddafi or Assad would ever have posed to the United States of America. We have really screwed the pooch on this one. And all partisans do (not yourself) is point the finger of blame back and forth when in fact it's shared blame!!!

    Sounds like a lot of leftwing blog information. Prove it? Just goes to show how easy some people are indoctrinated. Cannot get over it, can you? Serves what purpose?

    Not going to happen with people saying they support our troops but not the mission. You have to support both or it is just another PC war

    You can keep repeating that, though I've never said it. Hussein, Mubarak, Gaddafi and Assad had far greater success at containment of Islamic extremism than Bush or Obama have. Your refusal to acknowledge that proves how naive YOU are!

    Which is one good reason why you don't go to war without a formal declaration as outlined in the Constitution.
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    And you can't fight a war if everyone is fed up with fighting.

    That's right, and the American voter is sick and tired of fighting.

    Maybe not but you sure are easy to be indoctrinated and buy what you want to believe.

    Saudi Arabia and the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks

    We can’t say for sure, in part because a 2002 joint House-Senate report contains a 28-page section on al Qaeda’s “specific sources of foreign support” that remains classified. However, the bipartisan 9/11 Commission — which investigated the leads produced by the earlier congressional report — said in its 2004 report that it “found no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded the organization,” referring to al Qaeda.

    And yet planes flew into the WTC and Pentagon killing almost 3000 Americans. Radical Islam hates you and this country and nothing other than converting is going to change that
