    I didn't say Durham was Scottish. It is in close proximity to the Scottish border, and as we know, nobody ever crosses that. I'm American. My ancestors come from that area as I said. And, I was kidding about the Scotch. Lighten up. Shrubby and I like to play around.

    None of the above because these "news" reports are phony.

    Bring them home, they shouldn't have been there to begin with.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

Reports also indicated that when under attack, the base called for and received cover from US Apache helicopters and armed drones but they were not needed because the Iraqi ground forces ended the assault.

    A handful of ISIS fighters attacking a well fortified base is no need for any of the suggestions in the poll and the very thought that 320 US Marines would surrender to 25 ISIS fighters is incredibly offensive, in my view.
    They might not be in any danger, yet. However, ISIS units are closer to the Marine base than they were two weeks ago.

    If they are stupid enough to mass on the outside of the base, the folks on the ground will call in airstrikes and make them into well done hamburger.

    It appears they seem to know there only hope is to keep running small suicide missions to hope to find an opening and inflict some damages until they are wiped out.

    I can tell you what the marines and Special Forces would like to do! :-)
    Why not call in massive air strikes now?

    Due to civilian deaths. Unless you are for carpet bombing as was done in Vietnam?
