    The Bush administration, for its part, did not seek a declaration of war and labeled Taliban troops as supporters of terrorists rather than soldiers. It thus defined them as outside the protections of the Geneva Convention and the due process of law. This position was later overruled by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2008, following other decisions that overturned some US positions.

    I agree. They're much more pragmatic and have a stronger economy for having wasted considerably less blood and treasure.

    There's no evidence that ISIS exists. Only evidence available is that there are groups in Iraq opposed to its regime and fighting it, and that there are some who are engaging in brutalities for that reason or for other unrelated reasons.

    It's not unreasonable, in my view, to expect that the 2016 Presidential primaries, at least on the Republican side, and again in the general election, will focus to a large extent on who among the candidates is going to reengage America in a serious way in world affairs. The foolish Obama experiment has proven to be a disaster and it's not impossible to believe that before Obama's term expires the terrorists will be successful in bringing destruction to American soil once again. The best way to insure against that is to bring the fight to them in their home base.
    Yeah, let's send in the tens of thousands of ground troops that would be required to root out ISIS in Iraq and Syria! What could possibly go wrong?

    I don't recall him ever saying he DIDN'T want to take out the terrorists.

    Re: Rand Paul: As president I would 'destroy ISIS militarily[W:20]

    The Isolationist/Pacifist Rand Paul becomes the latest Republican to goad the President into another unpopular war that he knows the war-weary Americans are sick of. The height of hypocrisy from a Rand Paul who has spent his 6-week vacation bashing Mrs. Clinton as a warhawk

    Being opposed to foreign aid and taking out terrorists that threaten and kill your citizens are two different things.

    So many inaccuracies in this quote it makes me wonder if you are actually serious.

    Kentucky law currently prevents Rand Paul from running as a Senator and for the Presidency at the same time. Paul is just another of the many Chiefs in D.C. when what is neede is more Indians doing there job. Will Paul vote yes to authorize money for the current act being introduced .
