    But if we attacked SA, what about all that oil?



    The USA can survive without it.

    I'll admit walking and bicycling is a healthy alternative, but you know without oil, our economy would suffer greatly.

    The United States relied on net imports (imports minus exports) for about 40% of the petroleum (crude oil and petroleum products) that we consumed in 2012. Just over half of these imports came from the Western Hemisphere. Our dependence on foreign petroleum has declined since peaking in 2005.

    Even if we are lowering our dependence on foreign oil imports, where would we acquire the difference or deficit needed to keep our economy running smoothly?

    You also missed the fact that a lot of their fighters have U.S. passports and could very easily get in this country and raise havoc.........I hope the city where you live is not hit..........You might change your mind..

    Yes...but only if necessary. I think we can get the job done with a contingent of US special forces painting targets for air strikes in support of the Kurds and whatever is left of the Iraqi military doing the close combat fighting.

    What indication, hint or even mutated White House myth have you that ISIS can or intends to invade the US?

    Are you so weak that your own military build up, the tanks APC's, snipers and RPG's in your city streets are not enough to scare them into not trying? How about a wall?

    And what makes anyone think that fighting them where they stand will work? You've been slaughtering terrorist enemies for 13 years, only just left Iraq and now have to go back. What evidence is there that "fueling up drones" is going to stop the ubiquitous growth of America's enemies? How many dead now in Afghanistan? A million in all I heard [I will stand to be corrected] and no end in sight. And you think you can throw some bombs around, re-invade Iraq and be home for Thanksgiving?

    Like Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Afghanistan and now Iraq again. Albert Einstein once said a form of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, i.e. American foreign policy.
