    It's best we stay out and let others "fix" that area of the world.

    We only condemn ourselves to decades of hatred and terrorism if we don't do the job right. Don't get me wrong, I do not have any faith that they will allow us to do it right, but it can be done right.

    Option 1 would be the "glass parking lot" option, definitely would work but might have severe repercussions elsewhere.

    Option 2 would be to treat them with dignity and respect if we do have to go there. Don't blow the hell out of the infrastructure and then just walk away, help them out damn it.

    Option 3 total subjugation for extended period of time, say 100 to 150 years should do it.

    Use nuclear weapons? Not an option...that is a path to oblivion...Next

    Option 2 would be to treat them with dignity and respect if we do have to go there. Don't blow the hell out of the infrastructure and then just walk away, help them out damn it.
    And how much more should we spend on other countries while ours continues to degenerate? We already amassed a huge deficit where we won't be able to pay the interest on it, and this option suggests we nation build....Nope...Next

    Option 3 total subjugation for extended period of time, say 100 to 150 years should do it.
    Completely illogical...this is an asinine option

    1) Iran
    2) Syria
    3) China
    4) Maybe, but unlikely.
    5) No, not that I can think of.

    Afghanistan and Iraq purposely omitted as we are already involved in those. Also, I'm presuming something in the interest of literal self-defense would be a given, though I know some would oppose even that.

    Me? Barring literal self-defense, right now, I cannot envision any war I'd support.
    Yeah sure - one that makes itself a priority by the aggressor - not being us . . . I'm not about to be stupid enough to pinpoint one country over the other. . . I don't have a palantiri.

    I'll support whatever it takes to disband the UN.

    There are some who see it as an inevitability, or at least a possibility.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
