    Is the border secure?

    There's your answer.

Our forces have to be based somewhere, and it might as well be in or near where they would be needed if fighting broke out. This force could have been augmented by ships and submarines operating in the Persian Gulf.

    Ten thousand or so poorly trained savages, equipped with a lot of shiny new equipment they don't know how to use very effectively, could never have done anything like what they have in northern Iraq if a force like that had been maintained. Whether Iraqis liked having that force based there should not have been a consideration. Like the plea that we were helpless to change the status of forces agreement, that was just another flimsy excuse by this administration for its abject failure of will and leadership.

    Not very long ago, this President was dismissing these jihadists as the "jayvee team." And yet now, his Secretary of Defense and his Chairman of the Joint Chiefs are soberly declaring they have never seen anything like them and warning that to wage an effective campaign against them, the border with Syria would have to be ignored. Was Mr. Obama lying then, or are his high officials lying now?
    Nailed it. Obama snatched defeat from the jaws of victory and now we are threatened even at home.

    ISIS is just begging for the US to attack the Middle East again,

    They are counting on stupid reactionaries to forment a war.

    And suckers like US Conservative are playing right into their hands.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    We have always heard this from the left and yet Obama is now sending in troops, and the terrorists group that is actually surprising the whitehouse with how bad they are can be seen expanding across africa and asia as if they have metastasized.

    Of course its possible. Our newly open borders make it massively easier.

    Accidentally voted "yes," meant to vote "no."
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968
