wut? You dont see how mobilizing the regular army to drop into yet another country is different then some special forces or "teachers"?

The whole area is fucked from our meddling done by the republicans.

Wait, Are you saying the democrats had nothing to do with any of the meddling in the middle east?

Are you serious?

Not much, considering Republican meddling in the ME took off in 1953 with Eisenhower instructing the CIA to help overthrow the democratically elected government of Iran and install a dictator.

I know ISIS is dissapointed. Where the crap are they going to get weapons now?

Trump will gladly give them some if it means more rust belt white welfare, and you'll eagerly support whatever the fuhrer desires.

Thing that Trump voters don't realize is that the president is one man and the bureaucracy has its own opinions and dictates. Trump in particular is an impulsive person with shit self-control. This goes to show he's a pushover.

Trump voters are shit.

You are looking at two small tiny instances in time. We are talking about a much broader chain of events. These events includes both Democrats and Republicans.

Feel free to lie to yourself if it makes you feel better.

Are you sure a brain this small can hold such a broad chain of events?:

Really.

You sure got me. I clearly have no point because of a switch in an a and a i

LoL! I was trying to figure out why you used the term "lair". I thought there was a deep meaning underneath and I just couldn't suss it out. Never considered that it was a typo!

Does it matter what party is that started the problem? I mean does it really? Can anybody convince me that it does?

Stop it.

There are the anti war Democrats. Did you have a nice long 8 year vacation?
You know, as you sat idly by while Clinton convinced Obama to start this mess in Syria?
she used her sharpest language yet to describe the "failure" that resulted from the decision to keep the U.S. on the sidelines during the first phase of the Syrian uprising.

It's bad enough Obama let Clinton disrupt peace talks and arm 'rebels', thereby escalating the conflict, the bloodshed, and the humanitarian crisis. Her (your?) grand ideal was to actively wage war in Syria with US forces. To turn Syria into the next Libya. This interventionist war for regime change started many years ago Amazing how silent you can be so long as we can pretend to wash our blood stained hands of it.

Having said that, I oppose US forces in Syria and Iraq. We do not belong there. The local governments have ISIS on the ropes without us on the ground. Trump would be a damned fool (he is) to involve us any further in a campaign that is already being won. More foolish yet if any action we take resulted in us camped out playing police to maintain order. Security of the region must be upheld by regional actors. Any action we take should be to bolster and strengthen their governments.

But you must admit, putting down ISIS to restore order would pale next to the humanitarian cost you stayed silent on, and whose architect you voted for. When there are "anti war" protests, we'll know for what hollowed partisan principles they truly stand.

We have a few gazillion brand new Abrams deployed over there just waiting for our ground personnel to fill the seats.
Like Trump said, war is big business and good for the economy.

Yea bad for the cannon fodder though. Oh and the poor folks that happen to live there.

Most "defense" money doesn't go into troop pockets but rather massive amounts of expensive military hardware built & housed predominantly in non-urban areas. You make a pretty good point that we don't mind if browns do the dying though.

Do you believe he's white? So if he's not, he's running around these forums, bashing white people, with relative impunity. That is racism and he does it frequently.
