    This Administration's policy of Jobs for Jihadists just might work, especially since the increase in the minimum wage.

    You feel that the Muslim's declaration of a Holy War makes them Right Wing? They do get a lot of support from the Left Wing, but of course so do many of America's enemies.

    I say leave because its a lost cause. Not because we couldn't win or destroy them. But we wont. Our leadership has not the will to win.
    The leadership has the will to win election campaigns, and they are very good at that, but after that is when the confusion sets in.
    'Keeping them in the barracks' was a way of saying that you want to keep them out of any battles, is that correct? A great many people feel the same way and of course the Islamists understand this. They can gauge public opinion as well as anyone.

    If no one gets involved against these Jihadists do you think they will eventually just wear themselves out?

    Wow, the hyperbole is thick today.
    I never said to keep them out of ANY AND ALL battles.
    Tell yall what. Lets just stay there and keep fighting and dying for those that are totally unappreciative of our efforts to help them. Continue to waste our tax dollars, all the while they laugh and burn our flags, in wasted efforts.
    Lets make sure we engage in this endless war.
    This is what you want for our future generations?

    State Department spokeswoman floats jobs as answer to ISIS | Fox News
    The mindless left's solution to everything, 'jobs'.

    But not 'real' jobs, Green Tech Jobs (for companies that go bankrupt), government jobs (which increase overhead costs), etc. etc. Yeah, all pretty mindless ideologically based tripe.

    Not that the left actually creates or promotes business conditions where jobs are created, just witness all the tax increases insisted upon and tidal wave of additional business and environmental regulation (all bordering on exceptionally stupid) instituted by this administration. (Talk about hideous big government intervention)

    Now, the idea is to elevate Militant Islamic Fundamentalists standard of living to the middle class, and maybe that'll get them to stop believing in their religious ideology?
    Again, bordering on exceptionally stupid.

    If you elevate a Militant Islamic Fundamentalist's standard of living to the middle class, you will have given him more resources with which to wage his Jihad against the West and non-Islamic believers, resulting, I would imagine, in a greater number of attacks each dealing out greater amount of death and destruction. I think you'd call this 'enablement'.

    The real question needs to be why this clear 'enablement' of greater terrorist attacks by this ideology is so easily and completely accepted as fact by so many. Therein lies the real threat against the West and western democracies, probably greater a threat than the Militant Islamic Fundamentalists themselves.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    After 6 years of getting bitch slapped by reality, you'd think this president would have figured that out.
