    Because you completely sidestepped my question by either pretending to be stupid or actually being it, I'll repeat:

    By the way, at a 4% yes vote, even republicans don't agree with you. Sounds like you're just making up things as you go along and no one here agrees with you.
    Also, did you only make the poll to try to confirm your own opinion and disregard any results you don't like? Rarely is a poll on DP this one sided.

So you tell me outside of helping Obama in an election season-who benefited?
    Have you every thought that the meer fact that the United States is already in over 130 countries militarily might be the reason terrorism is "spreading"?

    Re: Has terrorism flourished under Obama?

    While I agree that terrorism appears to be flourishing, I don't believe it is correlated to "under Obama". That leaves the impression that Obama has either encouraged or promoted terrorism, explicitly or implicitly, and I don't believe that to be true at all.

    I think what we're seeing, and to a greater extent, is a return to terrorist actions throughout the world that were occurring prior to 9/11 and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. While those wars were going on, much of the terrorist activity gravitated to those arenas and neighbouring areas. Now that those war efforts have ended, under Obama, the terrorists are freer to spread their evil again. If the alternative is/was to continue the wars in both Afghanistan and Iraq, then we'll just have to live with being more vigilant in our various homelands.

We wouldn't have ISIS today if GWB hadn't decided to manipulate the public fear and use 911 to "justify" a decades old neo-con agenda that Rumsfield/Cheney, et al couldn't get the first Bush to do. They had to wait for a puppet to get in office and then figure out a time that they could do it. Sorry....but you have to know your history to understand the present.

    It appears they began, long before Bush ever came around.


    Salafi-Jihadists

    The methodology of the salafi-jihadists is in the primarily armed confrontations to bring about the Islamic state in the Muslim world. The salafi-jihadists are an international phenomenon and have especially made their presence felt in Afghanistan, Mali, Syria, and Iraq. Skilled in the use of new media, they have made the internet one of their prime recruiting grounds especially for high value western citizens. High value because of the media attention they receive [which acts as a recruiting feedback loop] and presumably the financial line they create with wealthy western donors.

    Salafi-jihadists have relied on foreign recruits for most part of their history, hence their connection to the indigenous population has never been strong, and this continues to be their primary tactical weakness. This weakness was plainly exhibited when the AQ were expelled from Afghanistan, which is where the salafi-jihadist ideology was born, then from Sudan when they became too much of a liability. Even when the salafi-jihadists are home-grown like ISIS, their extremist and counter-intuitive behavior have earned them a reception ranging from lukewarm at best to downright hostile in places like Gaza, Iraq and Syria; even from their fellow ideological allies the Islamists [Hamas, Ahrar-al-Shams] and relatively moderate AQ factions [al-Nusra Front].

    Requirement for what? Did I say something had to be qualified? Last time I checked conservatives almost never waste a chance to stick it to Obama, so if he can't even get them to agree with him on this then you can probably bet he's pretty far of course.

    Do you have an actual argument or were you just here to insert lazy one liners?
