    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
    Absolutely-this IS the time for war.

    And in the mean time, our removed-from-reality whitehouse suggests ISIS just needs a jobs program-and then says they can't be beaten!

    I read that four times to make sure you didn't have me with an Onion piece...

    OKAAAAY!

    Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner! The answer to terror is jobs!

    We haven't been able to create one here in the US in seven years but we are now going to kill them and keep on killing them while creating jobs for them.....

    "Achmed, I cannot get a job!"

    "Adul, then you should become a terrorist."

    You can't make this **** up. No, you can't.

    State Department did you say? Responsible for US foreign policy?

    DUCK!

    Yea, and what does that have to do with ISIS?

    The Soviets had subs off the coast of Florida for decades. Just being near by does not make them a threat. And just because they are not close does not mean they are not a threat.

    Non-sequitur fail.

    She acknowledged there's "no easy solution" and said the U.S. would still take out ISIS leaders. But Harf said: "If we can help countries work at the root causes of this -- what makes these 17-year-old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of trying to start a business?"


    Hey lady....

    Take a walk in Watts and ask the first kid you see with a gun why he hasn't started a business?

    Nope, and that is what is most frightening. That somebody who is actually an official spokesman for the US Government made such a statement.

    Maybe we can get them to stop the jihad if we offer them the GI Bill as well.

    This is the fantasy land in the whitehouse. They are to the point where they are spewing long discredited spin that has already failed Americans.
    But somehow it will defeat ISIS.

    It should be an Onion piece-but its really hope and change.

    I believe the talk about job programs was about the youth, to give them an alternative to becoming jihadist fighters.

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.
    While some like Crue Cab feel troops are safer in their bunkhouses, and rightly so, the Military actually wants to attack those who are murdering all these people, including their fellow Americans. But the Commander in Chief is too busy playing golf in Palm Springs, taking selfies, mugging for the cameras, fundraising, and is unable to make a decision on whether to unleash the wrath of God or not just yet.
