ISIS is a union of the guys who want to blow up the world, drive us back to the stone age, and Saddam's very capable military leadership. These guys have no fear, have lots of money, and they are very smart. They are our worst nightmare.
We'll have to stop them sooner or later. The sooner the better probably, but we should wait until the world gets on board with stopping them. The destruction of Islamic State should be a global action, as opposed to the US doing everything by ourselves while the rest of the world criticizes us for being a bully.
We are going to pay very very high costs for Obama not sticking with Iraq
Unfortunately Iraq was demanding the right to prosecute US soldiers in Iraqi courts. No thanks.
and also not supporting al-assad.
Supporting Assad is like supporting Hitler. I don't need stuff like that burdening my soul on judgement day.
For all the Putin haters I point out that yet again he was right, yet again his timing is perfect going into Syria trying to make a difference.
I hope Putin doesn't invade the Baltics. Nuclear war would be a bummer.
