The risk I took was calculated but man, am I bad at math.
But, you're right. That's not where ISIS is based. Moreover, Egypt has a military of its own. Let's let them deal with the attack.
As for the rest of my post, to wit:
Should the US go play world cop eradicating evil all around the world?Iraq, Syria?
Would you have Congress declare war on ISIS, then, and put the country on a war footing to go in and destroy them?
Then, what about AlQaeda, Al Shabaab, and the Taliban? Would you have us go to destroy them as well?
Would we be successful if we tried?
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Now, sure, we all know this thread is REALLY just about you hating liberals and playing your role as a right, proper warrior for the conservative cowboys against these big, bad liberal Indians, but if this isn't about Egypt, shouldn't we all just stop this thread right here and now and be done with it?
What's next -- a thread about global warming that has nothing to do with global warming or a thread about abortion that has nothing to do with abortion?
"you're better off on Stormfront discussing how evil brown men are taking innocent white flowers." Infinite Chaos
http://foreignpolicy.com/2009/01/18/...not-the-surge/Signing a Status of Forces Agreement requiring the full withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Iraq on a fixed three year timeline demonstrated a real flexibility on Bush’s part. It demonstrated a pragmatism and willingness to put the national interest ahead of partisanship that few of us believed he possessed. It is largely thanks to Bush’s acceptance of his own bargaining failure that Barack Obama will inherit a plausible route to successful disengagement from Iraq.
