    Fine then, best I can tell there are 500 in total... and now all marines by the way so we're not talking about a single operating combat unit.

    So again I ask, what magical combat operations you see 500 troops involved in when there facing an army of what? 10,000?

    You know, I may not be a fan of Obama's but I'm not so mindless that I can't help but think of that scene where Leonidas is standing before the 300, and the politicians come out and he says that his 300 are just going out for a stroll, that there just his body guards...

    Now I can't get the image of Obama in front of the press conference saying something like... (Skip to 1:10, it makes more sense

    Exactly what do you think any of those countries can accomplish that we couldn't? Not to mention the fact that I'm pretty sure these countries have zero expertise in fighting cooperatively. Some maybe here and there but even then that's limited.



    Why is that funny? Iran is a bigger ally of the Maliki government at this point than we are, and ISIS is a bigger threat to Iran at this moment than to the US.
    We've accomplished destabilising the entire region and now you want us back in to repair the destabilisation!

    The World needs to do something about ISIS, not just the U.S. but I would support a response to them if we had support from the world in money, equipment and troops from ALL U.N. nations.
    ISIS will not become a power. Why? Because many of the surrounding countries in that region (Syria, Iran, Jordan) have a vested interest in a Sunni uprising being quelled as quickly as possible. As soon as Iraq can get their PM issue figured out, I think you'll see things quickly simmer down. Also, as soon as we stop interfering and allow those countries I mentioned to step up, things will improve as well. We dont have to fix everything in this world , despite popular belief.

    You blasphemer. Did you just compare the 10lb dumbbell curling Barack Obama to King Leonidas? Shame on you my friend.
