    It is a goal, but if it means leaving boots on the ground for years. Screw it. We can let them stabilize themselves. Let them pull themselves up by their own bootstraps.
    What Obama said (and took credit for) is fact, what I "care" about Obama's words is immaterial. See my sig line, the last line.

    You know, before we spend one more dime or send over one more troop, I think Iraq should agree to total immunity for our boys having them only to have to answer to the UCMJ. THEN, they have to agree to pay us back every red cent we spend saving their ass, with oil shares/profits. Then take that money and turn it into fossil fuel alternatives. Then tell ALL those god-forsaken people over there to go pound their oily sand up their ass.

    I am not opposed to the current bombing campaign because it appears that it will save more innocent lives than it will destroy. Unless the circumstances change drastically, I expect to oppose sending in the troops.

    One reason, is that people do not appreciate outsiders coming in and occupying their country. It would make us the bad guys in the eyes of many Iraqis and may actually increase support for ISIS. That is especially true because of our previous invasion and our support for Maliki who do not provide equality for all the religious factions, a major cause of the current fight.

    There is also the fact that our last occupation did not go very well and there is no reason to think that we will do it better this time.

    Finally it is not our nation and not our problem. Arguably, we created much of the current situation, but I don't think we are capable of fixing it, probably no outsider can, especially a non-Muslim outsider with a history of intervention like ours. I am willing to use our forces do what it takes to prevent a genocidal situation, but that is all.

    There is nothing that can stop a small group of people from committing an act of violence. We can prevent some attacks, but another one will slip through. It only took about 20 people to do the 9/11 attack.

    I'm tired of the WWII situation being applied to every subsequent war. The political, cultural and military factors in every war are different. We didn't appease Saddam Hussein and now the region is in a worse situation than if we did nothing.

The northern alliance in Afghanistan for instance was stunned in regards to how accurate our bombs and missile strikes were, even with complete cloud cover.
    Yet we still didn't obtain a real victory in Afghanistan or Iraq because we made new enemies faster than we could kill them.

    No. We got very good at killing them, in fact so good they were scattered and the "list" was constantly being updated because they were with their virgins. We lose when we leave, and those evil-doers are free to rape, kill, and blow up historical and often religiously and culturally significant locations.
