    Actually that is exactly what GW Bush did before 911. Ignored the threats like “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” and went on vacation at his ranch instead. Are you saying you know of similar credible threats that Obama is ignoring?

Bush toppled Hussein quite directly. Obama welcomed the Arab spring most naively. Both had the net result of removing the corks on the bottles of champagne that kept all this revolting bubbly from pouring out.
    Had you received the following what would you have done? Then based upon the world intelligence AFTER 9/11 what would you have done?

    It is horrible. But there is nothing the U.S. can do about ISIS that countries like Egypt and Saudi Arabia can't do. Egypt has an excellent military and Saudi Arabia has plenty of money. I am all for helping those who can't help themselves. But this isn't such a case.

    I am not ignoring the threat. I understand fully well that ISIS is a threat. What I am not behind is giving the Government more of my tax dollars for an effort that will just create more terrorists.
    The risk I took was calculated but man, am I bad at math.

    LOL, yes, no doubt, Bush was to do in 7 months what Clinton didn't do in 8 years. What exactly should Bush have done? Again, typical Obama supporter and liberal, keep ignoring reality

    Terrorists have been created regardless of what you think and the reality is liberalism and political correctness have led to that creation. You fight wars to win not to appease liberal perceptions.

    This isn't about Egypt and Saudi Arabia, this is about ISIS in Iraq and Syria

    So you would not have been like GW Bush who negotiated and signed the agreement to leave Iraq in 2011? We all know Bush screwed up everything that he attempted. How about some thing new?

    Yes, another thread and another blaming Bush but the problem as usual is you don't understand context nor what the Status of Forces Agreement was and stated. What isn't new is your support for incompetence and your lack of understanding of not only foreign policy issues but basic economics and civics.
