    That simple step would deal a great blow to recruiting efforts and the resources of terror groups. The US is the common denominator of these groups. People join because they are mad specifically at the United States. I am not saying ending our involvement will immediately cause threats to stop, but it will not only damage the resources of these groups, but also allow us to refocus our resources and prevent attacks on our home soil.

    The perpetual war the US has been engaged in over the past 15 years has not done a bit to solve the problem. The dangers are growing, the costs are growing, but the security of the American people is not. That should be saying something that our current course of action is neither sustainable, nor sensible.

    Yeah, things have changed dramatically since the good old days, when your goal was to slay your enemy. If reincarnation is a reality, I have little doubt that I spent a good bit of time with the sword.

    Just kneel down and bear your neck. In only hurts like hell for a little bit, usually ten minutes or less.

    responding to that:

    1) How do you plan on doing that. It is impossible to distinguish a peaceful Muslim and a Terrorist

    and

    2) Even if we are able to wipe out all of ISIS, there are other groups. New ones pop up. Perpetual war.

    You're what I would call a firecracker Lizzie! And that is meant as a compliment.

    The answer is not declare victory and go home. The head-choppers only understand one thing, force. I have no problem giving it to them.

    It is only naivete that allows you to believe that ... but then, it's all our fault, right?
