    If they can't do that, I have no doubt they can hold their own until reinforcements arrive. After that, they should leave.
    We are discussion our Marines here , NOT you and I .. The Marines are special, and merit more support....

    There are few things I can imagine more foolish than turning your back on someone who has vowed to kill you anyway they possibly can.

    The doctrine of kill or be killed - pick one - is what now applies. They are not restricting themselves from murder anywhere in the world now - and their stated reasoning now is as simple as you are not submissive and one of them.

    Didn't have to 'draw a red line' in the sand with Syria, did he?
    Didn't achieve a SoF with Iraq now, did he?

    First not so much caused ISIS to raise, but the second and third for sure.
    Well no. Check the date of that NIE. But if you want to point out that the Obama administration has taken a problem created by Bush policy, and made it fantastically worse, then sure, we would agree. Btw, do you have selective reading? Why have all my protestations about the removal of Mubarak, Gaddafi and Assad escaped you. Why have you ignored it when I've pointed out that the US should be doing nothing in Syria, that US policy in the ME should be neither to perpetuate or remove regional governments. I don't give a damn what party a president is from, I don't want him advancing a policy of military intervention, exploitation, nation building and the general chaos that we've seen these last dozen years.

    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Really? I didn't know this was a street or bar fight. Get on planes, leave. Pretty simple. Secure our borders...........oh wait we cant do that.

    I don't think we have anything "in the making". The news report that the OP mentioned was days ago, and it is as fake today as it was then.

    Give him a camera - let him take some more selfies and just get the **** out of the way if he's not going to be impeached like he should be.
    um.... damn....

    Well, I have to admit, you've given me something more to consider, and, as you can tell from the post above, at least some of it is sticking, eh?
