    If we effectively killed enough of them they wouldn't still be there to kill etc. Killing people isn't that effective unless you take it to a genocidal level (i.e as we did to Japan and Germany during WWII) so that there are no pissed off young people to join the fight.

    Attrition is an absolutely valid tactic. They simply can't handle the losses. Thats why we should fight them there, not here.

If gangsters come into your town and start killing innocent people on the streets, you are okay with the police or national guard stopping them are you not? Ofcourse the bad guys fight back. They do not want to be killed. However they made the choice when they killed innocents.
    Really? If we're such do-gooders why havent we intervened in Africa, China or North Korea then? America is not the policeman of the world. We've been fighting this war on terror for over a decade now, its longer than Vietnam or WW2 and there's no end in sight. Guess what, we aren't winning.

    Do you not understand the concepts of context, opportunity and priorities?

    Youre either the policeman of the world or you arent. You cant just pick and choose and then say you are doing it for moral reasons, thats hypocrisy.

    "Why not do everything at the same time" is a most pathetic attempt at geopolitical understanding.

    Doing the same things over and over again while expecting a different result each time is the definition of insanity.

    That's not what's being done. The West employs diplomacy and economic engagement where possible (China, Russia, Saudi) and military intervention only as a last resort. There are many tools in the geopolitical toolbox and wanting to only use the hammer, on everyone at the same time, is just plain stupid.

    Doesn't matter what anybody thinks -

    We're going to go back ... we'll have no choice ... only question is how many Americans die before we go.

    We are going back to finish what Obama never could. And we are going to expose bad men to large amounts of energy.
