    [QUOTE=US Conservative;1063686684]Obama referred to ISIS as a cancer. Does ISIS have a place in the 21st century?



    Maybe Obama and the libs will tax ISIS ?

    That what the libs did to cigarettes believing it was the best way to fight cancer.

    This is entirely irrelevant from the coming elections, though I think that will tend to favor republicans.

    No wag the dog here, they are worse than AQ in that they are more violent, more fundamentalist, more diffuse, and have greater funding. And they are in Iraq because the US isn't.
    No wag the dog? Are you serious?

    A group of 7-10,000 whackos with little artillery and ZERO air power and you are clearly terrified of them...despite the fact that America could wipe them out without setting one 'boot' on the ground if she wanted to.

    They clearly want to provoke the U.S. and guess what, they have.

    They are a gnat compared to America and look at all the threads here alone going on and on about how afraid you all are of them.

    That is THE definition of wagging the dog.

    (idiomatic) A minor or secondary part of something controlling the whole.'

    Think more like Iraq before Obama lost the peace.

    Since when did the POTUS control Iraq?

    You have this asinine notions of how much power the Executive office actually has.

    And given the violence rates between 2003-2011, it was actually better under Obama than it was under Bush.

    You really are here just to blame everything you possibly can, even if it requires you to engage in massive lies, on Democrats eh?

    Now, certainly in the west ISIS has no place, I dont know what the islamic world thinks (i'd like to see a poll on that, actually) but this is evil incarnate, and needs to be destroyed.
    To be fair, I'm not saying that ISIS should have a place in the modern world.

    I'm just saying that it's not beyond the realm of possibility to suggest that they might very be successful if no one stops them.

    The world has suffered worse.

    And, if true how is that worse than AL Qaeda still operating in Afghanistan?
    More radical (according to Al Qaeda themselves), better funded, armed and with now a much better chance at overthrowing and taking an entire country for themselves.

    How is this terror now more important than the Russian terror camped on Ukraine's border? You think Russians don't bayonet babies?
    Ukraine is winning their war. Russia still has much to gain from at least appearing to be a reasonable actor, and no, no recent Russian aggression positively pales in comparison to what these guys have managed in the past few weeks alone.

    And isn't the"War on Terror" the slaughtering of religious and ethnic minorities?


    Please supply something other than rhetoric and Official White House Policy as reason for another war in Iraq, especially after the last one where the world was assured by General Powell that Iraq was awash with WMD's and about to nuke everyone
    Another terrorist state in the Middle East? Bad. A terrorist state whose explicit goals include a caliphate and the elimination of religious and ethnic minorities in the region, and eventually attacks against Western interests and cities? Much worse. It shouldn't and likely won't be the US's fight alone, but it's certainly a cause worth fighting against.

    Nope, but then again, no religion has a place in the modern world. All of them need to grow up and go away.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    A cancer is putting it lightly.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968
