"If your opponent is of choleric temperament, seek to irritate him." - Sun Tzu
My position is that ISIS, the terrorist scums that they are, have a higher moral ground to attack after Israel too committed war crimes in Gaza. Should they attack we allies join in the retaliation effort with NATO. The concern being: We are all duped from God's children to take action in their favor! If we do not become aware of this then it may prove that they are right too!
Will IS attack America? How should I know?
All I know about them is that I read somewhere that they are "relatively well-equipped and trained" on military matters, not least because many of Saddam's ex-militaries joined them. Is that even relevant for their capacity to attack America on its ground? I have no idea. The Arabs on 9/11 did it with fewer equipment.
At any rate, I am not fond of the catchphrase of the "war on terror" at all. The problem I see with this term is that it is so vague and leaves the government so much leeway, that this war may never end if the government decides so. But all the extreme and often questionable measures the government takes, including massive expansion of executive power, should never become permanent, else there is a slippery slope into tyranny. That's why I prefer better defined goals, such as a "war on ISIS". The government shouldn't have too easy a time abusing its power.
"Not learning from mistakes is worse than committing mistakes. When you don't allow yourself to make mistakes, it is hard to be tolerant of others and it does not allow even God to be merciful."
Terrorism in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yes it certainly can happen. Terrorism has been a problem for America forever just not a very prevalent one. Sending in more troops won't remedy this it will only instigate them further.
"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
So you want more Americans to die then? OK.The fact is you are defending the indefensible. We are going to go back in, get used to it.
