    US, Saudi, and UAE fighter jets have struck oil refineries within Syria under ISIS control.

    The UAE F-16 strike force was led by a female...

    You approve of this war because the President has a "D" behind his name.

So, unless you can show us or tell us this has troubled you for the past 70 years, your silence on this takes away your right to find this objectionable now. I, for one, do find this objectionable. All wars should be declared by Congress and taxes should be raised every time we go to war to pay for it. We should only do wars that the American people are behind and what better way to show they are behind the war then there express willingness to pay for them (which, I bet, would mean far fewer wars and balanced budgets)

    I agree that Obama needs congressional approval. However, Congress is no where to be found and has run from this issue faster a deer being chased by coyote. We are suppose to have brave man, un phased by tough decisions, running FOR Washington; but we instead have cowards running from Washington (that pretty much sums up what is wrong with our government). Someone has to do their job. I am glad Obama is at least trying to do his.

    Good point. Congress went home and forced the president to do what he has done because of politics and the election.

    The future irony will be that the Ebola outbreak spread throughout Isis ranks and annihilated everyone . . . along with 1/4 the world's population.

    Well we tried the tough guy approach and it got 4500 of our troops killed, cost us trillions and Iraq is still a freaking basket case and always will be. Remember the prisons are filled with tough guys and our prison would be endless war in the Mideast if you war pigs had their way. "Day of judgment calling. Underneath the war pigs crawling.

    Re: We are now bombing in Syria.

    I'm all for bombing " ISIS " Although i think adding boots on the ground may be more effective, but why is the attack only on Syria and not so much focus on Iraq? They have managed to take over cities in Iraq, wouldn't be a good idea to wipe them out wherever they operate? Can someone explain why there is not much emphasis on taking out isis in Iraq?

    If left up to incompetants like Obama, the body count will be in the hundreds of thousands. We learned thar lesson from WW2, where we lost 450 THOUSAND. It was the tough guys who had to save our asses.
