    We're bombing them! Anybody, whether its terrorists or another country will fight back, thats common sense. If somebody was bombing you Im sure you'd fight back too.

    Why put American boots on the ground when literally every country in the region would probably be willing to in order to combat the threat? I think ISIS is doing wonders for Middle East relations, it gives them all a common enemy and a way for America to get back in their good books and I think that is best done in an air support role.

    By boots on the ground you mean drones in the air, yes. They need to be wiped out, there is nothing good about them.

    Are the people who want to bomb and fight ISIS the same people who want the US to intervene to get rid of Assad is Syria? I'm guessing so.
    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.

    Personally, yes. That way it will end the debate and get everyone involved.

    I ask again where are all the "moderate" Islamists? Their silence is tacit approval of their brothers actions.

    Maybe we should design a program to drastically reduce our dependence upon oil.

    That should solve the problem.

    Re: Do you favor putting boots on the ground in the Midddle East to combat the threa

    The last time there was a "threat" in the middle east, the US got sucked into a 10+ year conflict that saw thousands of Americans die and trillions of dollars being spent to combat the "threat" in Iraq. Excuse me if I am skeptical about the ability for our government not to get us into an unwinnable war that has no clear vision and path. We cant fight our way to peace, we need to stop the cycle of violence, not continue it. Instead of getting raging b*ners about the idea of defense contractors getting more money and getting to go to war, how about we bring our people home, fortify our own borders here and ensure we are safe domestically, and funnel money into intelligence, so we know in advance and can thwart attacks in the future. We need to learn from our mistakes, not keep making the same ones.
