    Still, you still cannot discern who BO's people were that were advising him. Which have nothing to do with the GOP. As usual you take anything someone says out of context. Again this is not just a US problem.

    Once you figure that part out.....you will have the basics down.

    Well it never was just Military, which is why they then went with Judicial and laws. But its like I have been saying. Sometimes one has to fight fire with fire.

    We have been supporting them.....which ISIL would just take their equipment when they wanted it or it was given to them. From the beginning on their Commanders had more favorability for sharia law.

    All these guys care about is getting into power. Nothing else.....but getting rid of the Shia and taking another Country for the Sunni to run and govern. Anything that follows that grand scheme they are all nicey nice like.

    Iraqi army has to step up. Peshmerga are advancing on Mosul, but that is an Arab city. Syrian gambit is too dangerous to support the "rebels".
    Use air power, support the Kurds to at least contain. But Iraq is just as important as Syria -where this thing started (AQI)

    That would amount to $300K for a "poor" family of four - even the most ardent pro income redistribution fools do not foresee that level of a federal gravy train.

    They can retire in those countries with that type of money.....and getting out life long poverty will bring some motivation. War of attrition. Less and less numbers means loss of ground and influence. Those cartels and their people will be forced to always be hiding. Knowing mobs of the poor are coming for them.

    Good morning, MMC.

    I sure wish I had the time available to figure out ways to beat the system - but knowing my luck, they'd probably change the system just when I thought I had it all figured out! And then there's the Karma thing to consider, and nobody escapes that!

    Myself.....I say we use them to go and take out terrorists. Give them a chance at some freedom, if they can survive.
