    There so much a foreign power that you're terrified of them. Whether we recognize them formally or not, they have formed a country, a government, a military, a tax system - and additionally a pseudo country across the world. And they are recruiting successfully for literally 1/4th the world's population who all bow to the same God in the same direction at the same time of the day, swearing mutual allegiance to that God - a God of war, invasion, murder and intolerance from the very origins of the religion and within their religious texts.

    Our soldiers haven't bleed for them, they've bleed for us. Sure, now you also are anti-military too, but they even bleed for you - for all your curse them and their leaders for it - and try to trivialize their efforts and loses as pointless and having nothing to do about you.

    You are very foolish if you think we sent troops there for "them." They are there for us.

    We already tried leaving Islamic radicals alone in their own territory. The result? The 9-11 attack.

    I gather some people think they're just joking in vowing death to Americans. They have a MUCH larger population grow to draw radicals from than Germany or Japan ever did, and more of a potential for weapons to massively attack the USA directly.

    They are not like the Soviets who were atheists. They really do believe that their best hope is in glorious death killing us for which they are then eternally rewarded, thus so many suicide bombers. The reason there wasn't and isn't a risk of nuclear war with Russia is Russian leaders don't want to die. Those of ISIS/ISIL and other Islamic radical groups have within their very belief system that they SHOULD give up their life to have their reward.

    They get big enough, they will overthrow Pakistan. They will get nukes. Biological weapons too. AND THEY WILL USE THEM. They believe it is their spiritual duty to cause WWIII - certain ultimately they win it, but more importantly their efforts earn them a special place in eternity. This is the most dangerous growing cult around the world that has ever existed because it not only is a genocidal cult, but also a suicidal one.

    Sorry, but I am loosing all faith in the current administration.

    The only response should be the immediate increase of force and pushing ISIS out of the area. Yes, we are pushing them back now, but why are we not pushing them back ourselves and lifting what seems to be a siege in the beginning? Allowing them to simply gather forces and not really doing anything to stop it is pure insanity to me. It is almost as if the Administration wants them to fail, therefore having an "out" in pulling forces from the area.
    In my opinion that is exactly what Obama wants. He gave them Libya. He gave them massive amounts of weapons in Syria. Tried to give them Egypt. The list of his support of ISIS/ISIL is quite long.

    They just burned 45 more to death near one of our bases in Iraq. And after beheading 21 Christians in Libya the other day, they have kidnapped more.

    I want them dead, yesterday.

    They sure need to be stopped. This is slaughter of innocents on a scale not seen since Idi Amin.

    It raises even more questions about how this is being carried out and why. Some whiners are frightened that these atrocities are a deliberate attempt to drag the US into a ground war.

    I don't think so. This is an enemy taunting its power, showing that despite Obama's bombing they flourish; they can with impunity burn a Jordanian pilot to death, slaughter women and children because they were Christians and so were the crusaders, and now 45 people as though its a walk in the park.

    Add this to now seven countries engaged....

    Maybe its time to stop arguing about what to call them or whether they are one group, two groups, part of Al Qaeda or sons on the July revolution...man up and admit the pricks have tv and cell phones and are ****ing with us. While the president ponders on the historical consequences of stupidity a thousand years ago, maybe some one needs to focus on cancer that clearly cannot be "contained" and won't stop until they are relieved of the burden of their own heads.

    Like Ghandi, I am n o pacifist, that when as in the Bible there is a time for war, let there be war instead of pretending to make war. And if we are to make war, let us make war like an advanced civilization. Instead of beheadings, incinerate the ****ers with high tech stuff
