Obama is incompetent and is accountable for a lot, but this is Bush's mess NOT Obama's.

    Moving on to ISIS, or "The Islamic State" as these maniacs want to be called, the entire world should be worried about these fanatics.
    Nope, the world should be more concerned w/the brain-dead idiot red-white-and-bluers who apparently are too stupid to consider the possibility that their own media is simply offering them one-sided coverage of a conflict as a means to foster support for another childish Third-World intervention.

    Good, you should ask her whether every single person in Iraq who is fighting against the Shiite-dominated Iran-backed regime in Iraq refers to him/herself as ISIS of whether every single member of ISIS supports the kind of extremism that's cited by the media, or whether those extremists merely represent a small segment of larger group w/a more general goal--something that's typical of every political movement in the history of the planet, except in the world of limbaugh-make-believe where there are only goodies and baddies.

    What do you know about Islamism? Do you know the history of American support for Islamists? Do you know the history of support for Islamists by American backed dictators? ISIS is a real threat to the peoples of the Middle East. Islamism is a trumped up bogeyman to scare right wingers into being obsequious and casting their glare away from the pillaging that is happening inside their own homes, and instead focus on a scary threat half way across the world.

    Frankly, regardless of whether this story is truly as horrible as is being claimed, I'm glad to see that we've finally taken action by authorizing airstrikes.
    This is not good...

    I know its a cancer on the world. Both of my parents spent time all over the ME (Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon) teaching at various American schools. They told me how poorly Arabs treat not just Christians and Jews, but each other. Both experienced threats and there was an attack on one school. Not all were islamist, some were "just" political and anti-American.

    Islamism is more than a religion/govt/judiciary...it is a cancer on the world and it wont be stopped until its excised.

    I have never trusted the state department to act on the nation's behalf. Now I place the Executive branch, less DoD in the same category.
    If our government was functional, Id say creating that postwar vision would have been a relatively simple tasking and partnership. Reagan could sit down with his cabinet, his Sec of State, and democrat leaders and work together. Bush Sr could. Clinton was a genius at it which is why he may have had the morals of a sewer rat but he was still a great president. It helped that both parties were occasionally able to work together to achieve that whole greater good thing. Ultimately...we elect a president as the head of the executive branch and the leader of the country. We have party leaderships that are supposed to work towards their vision of a greater good for the country and they work together to achieve that.

    We have lost that. I think if you look back at the political turning point for our country it began with the Impeachment hearing of Clinton. That should have been handled so much better by everyone involved. It was made fatal with the defeat of Gore. I dont know that we have ever recovered. Unless we get a real leader in the WH...I dont know if we ever will.

    Your reply is rather ignorant....not unexpected though. If I were an editor of news service I would check to see if the images indeed were actual and were from the region they were reportedly taken from.

    Recent history demonstrates that conservatives generally favor bombing them w/planes.
