    Is Obama right to go back into Iraq?

    Obama has already had Special Forces in Iraq for months, and now in light of massacres of civilians we are scaling up our presence-including airstrikes against military targets. Obama has suggested this could go on for some time.

    Re: Is Obama right to go back into Iraq?

    At this point it doesnt matter what he does. He will be critizised anyways.

    In his possition I would send in troops. because if ISIS gets to the Jizidis there will be a genozide with thousands of slaughterd civilians.

    One of the latest reports I read says that ISIS overun a town of Jizidis, where they slaughterd the entire population except for the 300-400 women, who they took as slaves.

    ISIS simply must be stoped.

    Agreed-this is the biggest threat to humanity since the USSR and Nazi Germany.

    Re: Is Obama right to go back into Iraq?

    Why is it that all of these polls intentionally cast out those that do not lean in either direction? I'm not left-wing, and I'm not right-wing. A bit of an off-topic rant, but it annoys me.

    In regards to the topic at hand, no. He ran a whole political campaign against the very action he is now doing. The American people elected him as President with the understanding that he was going to do certain things, and he hasn't. He is continuing the Bush era foreign policy and frankly, as someone who actually did support Obama in 2008, I'm quite disgusted.

    Oh, for goodness sakes...come on now.

    Roughly 10,000 ISIS troops are the greatest threat to mankind since the U.S.S.R. and Nazi Germany?

    So the Khmer Rouge murdering millions of Cambodians was less of a threat?

    So 800,000+ Rwandans hacked to death was less of a threat?

    The Nigerian Civil War. Over 1 million and less of a threat to humanity then roughly 7-10,000 ISIS fighters?

    North Korea could obliterate South Korea with nukes if it wanted to. India and Pakistan could do the same to each other.

    All of these are less of a threat to humanity then roughly 10,000 ISIS troops running around in pickup trucks with a little artillery and ZERO airpower?


    No offense, but your statement is totally ridiculous.


    And as for Obama's moron plan of getting involved again...

    even Reagan knew better then to get involved in the Middle East

    'Lest we forget, after America's first encounter with jihadist violence in 1983 – when 241 US military personnel were killed – Reagan, to use the disparaging lingo of the neocons, chose to "cut and run". Every single soldier was pulled out of Lebanon within four months. "Perhaps we didn't appreciate fully enough the depth of the hatred and the complexity of the problems that made the Middle East such a jungle," Reagan later wrote in his memoir, adding: "The irrationality of Middle Eastern politics forced us to rethink our policy there … If that policy had changed towards more of a neutral position ... those 241 marines would be alive today."'

    Ronald Reagan was no hawk

    Reagan was not perfect by any means, but in regards to the Middle East he hit the nail on the head. These people have been fighting since the beginning of time. Peace in the Middle East is actually a biblical sign of the end-times. Who, in their right mind, would suggest we get involved in centuries upon centuries of brutal conflict?

    Its not specifically ISIS thats the threat-its the threat from Islamists across the globe-and the impact they have on Western and other free nations. A 7th century ideology vs the modern wests ideology. The threats from this throwback to the dark ages on upcoming nations in Africa and Asia.

    If anything, I'd modify my statement not just from Soviets, but communists in general.

    The definition of Libertarian is not centrist-and even if it was its unlikely you are EXACTLY in the middle, not leaning either left nor right. If THATS the case, you are a unique case and should understand me not needing to name every possible political ideology.
