    I'm not in favor of combatting the.
    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.

    I say no, not right now, for sure. I firmly believe the only way to make ISIS/ISIL/IS/whatever you want to call them irrelevant is to destroy them. Hopefully this can be accomplished with Kurdish militias, the Iraqi military, and airstrikes. Though, if this fails and ISIS gains considerable ground, I would be in favor of sending some troops. I'd hope that it would be a NATO effort initially before the U.S. officially declares sending troops unilaterally. There's a chance that would suffice and it would be more politically acceptable, I believe. But this is conjecture at the moment. I don't think ground troops are a necessity at present.

    Also, if anyone is interested that might not know, The Institute for the Study of War does frequent, detailed updates on the happenings of the conflict over at their blog. Some very good information that is a lot more fleshed out and usable than a lot of other media coverage.

    If the threat is here, why send the troops there?

    A plane ticket to Mexico, and the terrorist threat can just walk over, if they get caught, they will join the Mexicans in getting a bus ticket wherever they want to go in the country.

    Term that goes along with that - Collateral Damage. Translation- pictures of dead kids on CNN. Just sayin'. Not that I'm against bombing them, it's just that it doesn't work nowadays like it did in WWII, when civilian deaths were expected - not necessarily accepted, but expected.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.
