Chemists Have Solutions .
Shades of 1964 ....
Either do it and get the hell out ... or don't do it at all.
That big stick is the U.S. military. You have to have more than three carriers capable of putting to sea at one time to have a big stick.
Remember when G.W. Bush was CnC ? I do, he had two CBG's (Carrier Battle Groups) in the 6th Fleet AOR conducting combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan while another CBG in the 5th Fleet AOR just ****ing around keeping the lid on the pot in the Middle East and North Africa and you had China who thought they figured out how to sink two American carriers and decided to rattle the saber and conducted naval maneuvers in the Tiawan Straits.
Bush was able to put four CBG in the area in less than two weeks while three other CBG's were in their AOR's conducting other missions not related to China. That's seven carriers at sea on station. The Chinese put their saber in the scabbard and never rattled it again as long as Bush was in the White House.
That's called having a big stick or speaking the talk and having the walk.
Obama has problems just keeping two Carrier Strike Groups at sea.

Is ISIL a direct threat to the US?
(The speech basically said 'no')
Why are we declaring war if it isn't?
We are now on Iran's side, sorta. I'm just wondering when the official announcement will be when we find we are at war with Europa and at peace with Oceana, or vice versa.
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.
