    Sometimes just standing your ground is an act. If I was President, I believe that's what I would do.

    I don't support a full fledged ground war against ISIS. It's not our problem, it need to be handled by people who ISIS is a real threat to. However, I don't mind the US helping to contain ISIS so that it doesn't spread outside the region. I certainly wouldn't ask the US military to go running off like those chicken **** Iraqi troops did.

    So sign up and go fight. You dont think the US has bled enough for those bastards? Have we not spent enough on them? Did we not train them for a decade.
    Oh, and foreign "power". LOL

    All it does is take a boiling pot down to a simmer and in a few years or less it will be back to a boil again. The Govts have to change. people have to have rights, jobs, free from death squads, corruption reined in.
    Not one sect treating the other as heretics would also be a grand ffn start.

    You mean those civilians that wont fight, cant fight, not willing to fight? No, they are not worth one US soldier.

    If the locals don't like it, they can strap up and kill the islamofacists, themselves and we won't have to.

    Containment won't work.

No point in fighting a war we can't win.

    I totally get the emotional response to ISIS, but I really don't get those who insist that it's the responsibility of the US to fight someone else's battle. I suspect for some reason, people like adpst can't imagine the scenario that our ground troops would be in. Do they really thing that ISIS will just amass in a large formation that we can wipe out? Or do they think we can go door to door asking people: "are you ISIS"?
    Yeah, we all want them to get together in a massed group, holding up, Bomb Me signs. As we both know, ain't gonna happen.
    They slither back into the civilian population, same as the Taliban do.
