Roxlo advocating that we invade North Korea & go to war with Russia. WTF. Both know they would be defeated in a war with the US.
When military actions end, like the Afghanistan War & the Iraq War, militaries are reduced.
Roxlo is too f*cking stupid to know that when the cold war ended, his hero dick Cheney, slashed the military in one of the largest reductions ever.
ISIS is no real threat. Their methods are rejected & they have little support in the world. It is just another excuse for the right whiners to have a fit & complain about Obama.
Obama was right to let the Iraqi government to deal with it. Since Sunni Iraqis were fighting alongside ISIS, it was a civil war type action created in part by the Iraqi government not including Sunnis. We should not help the Iraqi government to continue to exclude Sunnis.
Now, as ISIS heads toward areas with US presence, Obama's air strikes will weaken ISIS enough for the Kurds & the Iraqi Army to hopefully defeat ISIS.
Roxlo would suggest the US troops be sent to Iraq, again. That would be stupid.
There are always wars going on in the world. How many were & are slaughtered in Africa? Did you advocate troops being sent there??
ISIS is just another excuse to for the whiners to complain about Obama. Roxlo pretends to actually give a sh*t about children. When he suggested we do not care & feed those immigrant children crossing our border, he demonstrated his true feelings about children.

The conspiracy lies within the Federal Reserve System - if there is any conspiracy.
Libertarians want less government even if it means risking stoners driving behind the wheel of every car and everyone marrying their own brother.
And no EPA to oversee the safety of our food.
Wanting less government is good. But there's enough rational people on both sides to keep their "wild and potentially dangerous" side in check.
No Carol, there is no conspiracy. The Fed exists to control the money supply through interest rates; raising them to combat inflation and lowering them to stimulate economic growth.
The rest of your post is surprisingly lucid for once except that the EPA doesn't oversee food safety; the FDA is in charge of that.

Barack Obama has authorised military airstrikes over northern Iraq in order to “prevent genocide” being carried out by Islamist extremists, threatening to revive US military involvement in the country's long sectarian war.
The US President announced in a televised late-night statement from the White House that he would approve targeted strikes on fighters from the Islamic State should they advance towards the city of Erbil, to protect US diplomatic and military staff stationed there.
"Earlier this week, one Iraqi in the area cried to the world, there is no one coming to help. Well, today America is coming to help," Mr Obama said.
Innocent families face the prospect of "genocide," as jihadists take control of swathes of the country, purging Christians and other minorities, he said. "The US "cannot turn a blind eye".
"There is no American military solution to the larger crisis in Iraq," Mr Obama said as he vowed he would not send combat troops to Iraq. "As commander in chief, I will not allow the United States to be dragged into fighting another war in Iraq.
In December 2011, Barack Hussein O"bama declared the mission in Iraq accomplished -- in his words, a "success." According to the president, we were leaving behind an Iraq that was "stable and self-reliant." Except we weren't, and O'bama knew it and so did anyone else paying attention. In case you haven't been paying attention, the Killing Fields of Iraq have been going on since O'bama declared "victory".

"As commander in chief, I will not allow the United States to be drawn into fighting another war in Iraq," Obama said.
Even so, he outlined a rationale for airstrikes if the Islamic State militants advance on American troops in the northern city of Irbil and the U.S. consulate there. The troops were sent to Iraq earlier this year as part of the White House response to the extremist group's swift movement across the border with Syria and into Iraq.
http://news.msn.com/us/obama-authorizes-airst...
...So he sends troops into Iraq after having called it a "dumb war" (very presidential) and getting troops out of Iraq as fast as he could to now fight extremists (ISIS) who filled the vacuum after we left and of which he ignored as a clear and present danger for far too long and is now calling for airstrikes to protect the Americans that HE sent into Iraq.
He just needs to scratch his head and look very confused. I know we are.
Iraq was won. All we had to do was leave behind an American force that would continue to mentor and hold the Iraqi army together, and work as a deterrent against terrorist adventurism. O'bama, the ignornant democrats, and his media minions blame the Iraqis for the failure of the status of forces agreement, but it was O'bama who didn't want the deal and only made a symbolic push to win a deal. Before Iraq started falling apart, O'bama continually bragged that the decision to pull all our troops from Iraq was his decision -- the keeping of a campaign promise. Like a typical crackhead, O'bama was only worried about himself and getting re-elected.

Barack Obama has authorised targeted air strikes against Islamic militants in Iraq, as the US military began an airborne operation to bring relief to thousands of minority Iraqis driven to a grim, mountain-top refuge.
Describing the threats against stranded Yezidi refugees as holding the potential for “genocide”, the president said he had authorised limited air strikes to help Iraqi forces, to assist in the fight to break the siege and protect the civilians trapped there.
“When we face a situation like we do on that mountain, with innocent people facing the prospect of violence on a horrific scale and we have a mandate to help - in this case a request from the Iraqi government - and when we have unique capabilities to act to avoid a massacre, I believe the United States cannot turn a blind eye,” the president said in a late-night statement from the White House.
“Earlier this week, one Iraqi said no-one is coming to help. Well, today America is coming to help,” he said.
The delivery of humanitarian relief, in the form of air drops by US jets, took place after a day of intense debate at the White House over how to respond to an Isis army that has caused mass civilian displacement as it moves closer to the previously stable Kurdistan region of Iraq.
The air drops represented the first aerial mission over Iraq since 2011 for a purpose beyond conducting surveillance on Isis, providing long-scheduled military sales or transporting the extra hundreds of US special operations “advisers” that Obama ordered into Iraq to help Baghdad confront the threat from Isis. They marked the start of the deepest American engagement in Iraq since US troops withdrew in late 2011 after nearly a decade of war.
The US military was already helping the Iraqi government co-ordinate air drops of vital supplies to at least 40,000 Iraqis, mostly from the Yazidi minority, trapped on top of Mount Sinjar in the northwest of Iraq after death threats from the Islamists who have overrun much of the region.
Qaraqosh, Iraq’s largest Christian city, was left all but abandoned as the jihadist group Islamic State (Isis) advanced through minority communities in the country’s north-west and towards the Kurdish stronghold of Irbil. Late on Thursday night the UN security council condemned the attacks and urged international support for the Iraqi government.
Obama said “targeted air strikes” could soon be used to protect American personnel in Irbil, and could also be used to protect Baghdad if it came under pressure. He claimed the steps were a necessary response to a deteriorating humanitarian situation, in which there were “chilling reports” of mass executions and the enslavement of Yezidi women.
Thanks to O'bama's highly dangerous combination for ambition and ignorance, ISIS is now a terrorist nation-state within Iraq (and part of Syria) with a standing army, a command and control infrastructure, control of a 600-mile front in the North, and a half-billion dollars. Instead of getting rid of Assad's WMDs we should have left them in Syria to fight back against ISIS...you know-the same ISIS "REBELS" O'bama gave weapons to.

You keep attempting to dodge the fact that there are outsiders in the battle because it does not fit your narrative that this hostile take over of a nation by a terrorist group is just a civil war.
Again Dave when you are threatening the slaughter of a group of people that is much more than making accidental refugees in a war zone--it is genocide. Until you can grasp that simple concept you will be always incoherent in giving a rational response.
The children at the border are being cared for and nobody is threatening to kill them because of their ethnicity--idiot. They need to go home to their families.
ISIS would not have the success they had without support from the Sunni groups.
Yes the border children are being cared for. That is not the point.
The point was YOU said they should not be cared for by the US & just left to pile up at the border.
You said it, at least have some courage to admit it instead of constantly running from your own posts.
Children in Iraq & you go running OMG OMG OMG" Children at the border and you go " F*ck 'em,". You constantly b*tch about US children on food stamps.
