    Also, are you assuming that some particular country...say, France...is going to invite us to deploy troops on their land? Or do you think we are going to invade someone?
    Not vague - countries in the ME where there bases of ops are.
    Vague- Funny.

    Yes- why

    No – Why

    If yes- what countries would they be deployed to?

    With the recent attacks in Paris I see a number of people that want to go in and take them out.
    You opinion on what the West should do.
    Large scale deployments of troops will not work.
    Look to Iraq and Afghanistan and lessons learned.
    Using the current rules of engagement, the only place we should have troops is Ft. Bragg. Remove the impediments our soldiers currently have and we could easily take out any terrorist force in
    a very short time and the world would be a better place if we did.

    i will type this as clearly as possible.


    We are only Supposed to Kill the Terrorists

    Those Impediments exist because we are not at war with a countrie, we are supposed to not kill civilians that are unaffiliated with terrorist organizations.

    Okay...countries in the ME. Do you expect them to invite us? Or must we invade?

    Like any party it would need to be by invite, unless using drones and air power.

    Nonsense. How about the term "West" that you used? Who, exactly, commands those West forces, pays those troops or sets their "rules of engagement"? Even using your OP example of the latest Paris attacks - which country (countries?) would you send troops to and to do, exactly, what?

    Are you aware of a location where tens of thousands of terrorists congregate? If you, you should email the CIA or something....

    Rather picky today. West - EU- North America as it is normally referred to.
