Ex-army chief Lord Dannatt said UK troops might be needed on the ground to help support US military air strikes.

He said that the West could not watch a genocide take place: "If we do nothing and wring our hands later and say once again,'We shouldn't have let that happen,' then I think we have all let ourselves down."

He also told BBC Radio 4's Today programme the 2003 Iraq war meant the US and UK could not say what was happening now was "not our problem".

"It may be unpopular but it might be the right thing to do," he said.

Former British army commander Col Tim Collins called for a "unified front" against "the evil of the Islamic State".

He said help should be sent in the form of training for resistance fighters to improve their tactics and provide security for communities under threat.

ISIS a bigger threat than pre-9/11 al Qaeda?
As the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)-- or simply "The Islamic State" as the group now says it should be called -- continues to sweep through northern Iraq, U.S. lawmakers are sounding the alarm that it could be just as dangerous as al Qaeda in the days before it launched the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S.
"Every day that goes by, ISIS builds up its caliphate and it becomes a direct threat to the United States of America. They are more powerful now than al Qaeda was on 9/11," Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday.
Experts say the Islamic jihadist group has indeed been able to accomplish an enormous amount in a short period of time. And in global reach, fundraising capabilities and pure operational ability, they are certainly outpacing Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda.
"Al Qaeda in the pre-Sept. 11 phase was capable of engaging in strikes and bombings," Tom Sanderson, a terrorism expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told CBS News. But what ISIS has now, he said, "is more significant and more varied than what al Qaeda had in terms of its actual combat capabilities where they are fielding artillery. They are holding much greater territory than al Qaeda had, they are governing people, they have a more diverse funding base... they have a greater localized funding base than al Qaeda."
The group is in fact a rival faction to modern-day al Qaeda, whose general command cut ISIS off from its network in February because it disobeyed orders from leader Ayman al-Zawahri.
The Internet has afforded ISIS the ability to recruit all over the world. The group gained power and experience fighting in Syria, where an estimated 10,000 to 20,000 foreigners have traveled to join the fight, including 1,500 and 2,500 Sunni extremists from Europe and 100 to 200 Americans who hold Western passports and have far easier access to the U.S. if their terror activities go undetected by authorities.
Still, big does not always mean organized.
Juan Zarate, CBS News' Senior National Security Analyst, said that ISIS is probably less well-organized than pre-9/11 al Qaeda, which spent years meticulously training and plotting to attack the United States. And Sanderson said the surprise element of its attack on the United States was part of what made the group so lethal.
But ISIS could also be benefiting from the years of groundwork laid by its predecessor-turned-rival.
"ISIS, especially with the announcement of the Islamic State, is piggybacking off of the global networks and inspiration that al Qaeda fomented post-9/11 and give them, in some ways, a global infrastructure on which to build. It's not as if they're starting from scratch," said Zarate.
One of the group's biggest advantages over al Qaeda is the fact that it has seized a vast swath of territory and virtually erased the border between Iraq and Syria. Unlike al Qaeda, "in some ways...rented from the Taliban in Afghanistan," Zarate said, ISIS has gained strength from the territory it occupies.
"In the 21st century any operating room for a terrorist group is a prescription for disaster because they have the ability not just to build up their local strength but to allow themselves global reach," he added.
ISIS has a local fundraising base from Iraq and Syria, where it brings in revenue from the granaries, oil wells and power plants it has captured. Last week, it seized Iraq's largest dam, gaining control of enormous power and water resources as well as access to the river that runs through Baghdad. Trafficking, extortion and kidnap-for-ransom operations bring in millions of dollars.

Once again Carol you're confusing regional weather patterns with global climate. Didn't you recently say you never did that? Contrary to your false assumptions these cold waves in the upper Mid West are attributable to global warming.
The fact is that extreme cold is becoming more rare in the US. Arctic warming is altering the heat balance between the North Pole and the equator, which is what drives the strong current of upper level winds in the northern hemisphere commonly known as the jet stream. Some studies show that if that balance is altered then some types of extreme weather events become more likely to occur.
Sea ice is vanishing from the Arctic thanks to climate change, which leaves behind dark open ocean water, which absorbs more of the heat from the sun than reflective ice. That in turn is helping to cause the Arctic to warm faster than the rest of the planet, almost twice the global average. The jet stream—the belt of fast-flowing, westerly winds that essentially serves as the boundary between cold northern air and warmer southern air—is driven by temperature difference between the northerly latitudes and the tropical ones. Some scientists theorize that as that temperature difference narrows, it may weaken the jet stream, which in turns makes it more likely that cold Arctic air will escape the polar vortex and flow southward. Right now, an unusually large kink in the jet stream has that Arctic air flowing much further south than it usually would.
Food prices are being determined by supply and demand; the supply being limited due to drought and in the case of pork a virus. The Fed doesn't have anything to do with that.
Taxes are the province of Congress, not the Fed.
The Fed controls the money supply by raising or lowering the interest rates on money it loans to banks. Raising them in times of inflation and lowering them when the economy requires stimulus.
Dupie continues to show us why Flaming Azzholes feel the heat of Global Warming.

But here's a quote from Charles Krauthammer - The Weekly Standard, May 11, 1998
"Israel is the very embodiment of Jewish continuity: It is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, and worships the same God that it did 3,000 years ago. You dig the soil and you find pottery from Davidic times, coins from Bar Kokhba, and 2,000-year-old scrolls written in script..."
(They don't give out the American Pulitzer Prize for syndicated columnists to just anybody...)
You'll also find relics from civilizations that predated ancient Israel like the Philistines and Canaanites that they massacred including women and children claiming a divine mandate.

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.
Obama is funding ISIS (Al Qaeda), moron.
These puny air strikes remind me of when Clinton launched a few cruise missiles in the general direction of Al Qaeda training camps in Affhanistan, that coincidentally were abandoned immediately before the strike, after the bombing of the USS Cole.

There is oil in Kurdistan, and there are European operators of those fields. Obama (Valerie Jarrett, the real President) has to put on a show to satisfy the oil companies. Obama is funding ISIS, and they are threatening the oil fields in Krudistan. And we get John Kerry promoting the assinine notion that we recognize Al Qaeda and enter into negotiations with them, the only purpose would be to give them concessions, which is the beginning of the establishment of the country they declared. This country will be run by the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood is in the White House.
... let me know if you need help connecting these dots.

Mitt Romney was a corporate vulture. What happened to Dade International which Bain took over under Romney's watch is a prime example.
At Bain Capital’s direction, Dade quadrupled the money it owed creditors and vendors. It took steps that propelled the business toward bankruptcy. And in waves of layoffs, it cut loose 1,700 workers in the United States.
Bain and a small group of investors bought Dade in 1994 with mostly borrowed money, limiting their risk. They extracted cash from the company at almost every turn — paying themselves nearly $100 million in fees, first for buying the company and then for helping to run it. Later, just after Mr. Romney stepped down from his role, Bain took $242 million out of the business in a transaction that, according to bankruptcy documents and several former Dade officials, weakened the company.
Do you live in a glass house, idiot?

Obama's money bungler Jon Corzine was the CEO of MF Global where $1.5b of investor money went missing - you commies were silent about that.

A U.S. regulatory agency's lawsuit can proceed against former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine over the collapse of a brokerage firm in one of the nation's largest bankruptcies, a federal judge said (in early 2014).
