    Hum .. one must wonder if you aren't an 'Ugly American' at heart, being that you are showing all the traits you so despise in Americans.

    He raised taxes on the rich. Remember you guys were all bent out of shape about that (even before it happened)?

    But I'm glad conservatives are finally coming round to agreeing it was a good thing.

    Rand believes intervention should be when there is a legitimate threat. He's right.

    Anyone who calls him a "neocon" is in serious need for an education.

    Well, since you put it that way, what is the Canadian government willing to do - or more appropriately, what steps have your government taken - to halt this ISIS threat from spreading?

    Seems to me you're very willing to put down your neighbor's leader yet tug/hide behind the skirt of protection he provides all the while condemning him for not doing things your way. When the song "Blame Canada" plays I want you to understand what I blame you for at this point: resting on your laurels while enjoying the very "peace through strength" America provides.

    I just call him a "fool." And now he deserves to be called a chicken-hawk, to boot.

    A legitimate threat would be like WW2 when somebody declares war on you. Not this.

    ISIL declared that their flag would be flying over the White House. Terrorists groups may not be Nazi Germany, but they pose a threat nonetheless.

    It is a legitimate threat. However, if there's one lesson we should have learned over the past 14 years, it's that destroying a terrorist organization militarily is very difficult if not impossible.
