    And there's a big gap between political engagement, and military engagement. But that's ignored by warmongers that think political engagement alone is equal to isolationism or appeasement.

    I don't know what is worse

    the Obama haters who want the marines to flee so they can blame Obama for the USMC being routed

    Or

    the person who wants the marines to surrender (and then be burned alive or beheaded) by ISIS because she hates America or our military

    OK, so we do not engage them. What do we do? Put in place economic sanctions and an embargo?

    Slight modification. Evac, wait for ISIS to occupy the base, and then drop how ever many Daisy Cutters you need.
    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

    And do absolutely nothing about ISIS at all?

    I guess you have no problem with the slaughter of innocents then, just so it is not the US that kills any, right?
