    I say we nuke it from space and kill every last person there. It is the only way to be sure.
    Wow.... someone rally missed the point on that one. God did not send his son to "try to help out" in the Middle East. Just some FYI.

    That all said, I do agree that the Middle East strive is a bit of an illustration, if not a downright metaphor, of spiritual warfare, but that is another discussion.

    The Middle East is certainly very complex, and I'm not going to claim that every single problem in the Middle East is because of U.S. intervention. However, especially in Iraq, the United States has caused damage to the stability of the region that will be very difficult to undo, if it ever can be undone. The rise of ISIS was caused by the power vacuum created by toppling Saddam Hussein, and we are now paying a heavy price by fighting them.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
