Hard to imagine that France, Germany, UK, Israel, and so on, are not concerned. Not hearing much from any other country and it is getting old to see that it is the United States dealing with this alone.

A strategy ? we don't have a president that CARES !!! OR HE WOULD KNOW WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO GO ABOUT IT. They "ISIS" is already here and HE has no strategy, if ISIS strikes it will be his "obama's" and nieto's fault for not sealing the borders and nieto for having "la bestia " deliver them to our borders. ISIS exists because obama DOES NOTHING ABOUT ANYTHING. iF WE HAD A TOUGH REPUBLICAN running the WH.... ISIS would never have been able to exist and get as large a terrorist group as it has become. NOW YOU feeble minded democrats are you sorry you voted for the dictator ??? you liberals are to blame for not having made a well educated probe before voting.

It is a smoke screen !
Those are Barack "just-call-me-Hussein " Obama's homeboy muslim terrorists.
Hussein and other democRATS are deflecting the fact that he is permitting more muslim terrorists on U.S. soil.
They don't need passports, when Hussein puts them on U.S. military aircraft, or when they blend in with illegal Mexicans coming across the borders.

Right, a tough guy like Willard "mittens " Rmoney?
Why didn't your 'side' do some well educated probing before putting up such a zero of a candidate, and better yet, why won't you do it before whatever 2nd place to Hillary you're going to put up in '16?
No one to blame but yourselves.

The American people/government can't stomach the winning strategy and you know it.
We institute a draft, war bonds, rationing, victory gardens, the whole 9yrds and we go in.
We go in and we stay. We build a 100 bases and set up shop. Maybe throw a few nukes around. If they move to other countries, we move to other countries, build bases, set up shop and stay.
The Dems/Libs will scream Imperialism and the Reps/Teahadists will scream we can't afford it.
But if we want this done right, we do what we didn't do in WWII.
And no ones willing to remember that, much less willing to vote for it.

If and when we Americans finish with name-calling and other bashing, we'll realize ISIS is of the overall "Mujahidin" worldwide radical Islamic movement to conquer and subjugate we infidels. And it's going to take more than sporadic air strikes to halt the growing surge It's going to be a cultural war against internal infiltration. And it perhaps may necessitate a violent Church Crusade, as it did throughout past Western history.

Or just re-run the much more recently failed, cyclical approach – from 2003.
Put 160K swinging dicks on the ground, and we can spend trillions to have the same problems all over again by 2025.

Or if you don’t like the Rumsfailed approach – we can spend triple the money to put 3x that number of troops on the ground. It won’t be any more effective over the long-term – but will look much more impressive on TV.

I'm not sure were on the same page on this But Stalin wanted to finish the job by invading
Fascist Spain and pay them back for helping Hitler during the Russian campaign.

At the Potsdam Conference of 1945, Stalin attempted to made the Allied invasion of Spain the conference's first order of business BUT was rejected by Harry Truman and Winston Churchill.

OR maybe you are talking about the NAZI Financial Backers escaping any culpability and going on to form the UN, the World Bank, the IMF, etc......as well as take total control of the new television technology and initiated their "Political Correctness."

And don't forget the HUNDREDS, if not THOUSANDS of black-Africans, that were slaughtered by the Muslim religious freaks after Obama assassinated Ghaddfi. Jesse Jackson Jr. called for an ICC investigation into the butchery(lynchings, beheadings, whippings and beatings).

Obama, to cover up horrific War Crimes he caused, actually had the Rascist Phony Holder, to intiate criminal charges against Jr. and throw him in prision.

I was referring in a somewhat generalized way that during the course of WWll we built a jaw dropping amount of military installations across North Africa, the Middle East, and really most of the civilized and uncivilized world. Had we the foresight to retain these outposts instead of returning them under lend-lease agreements, we would have a far better foothold in the world and a larger say in world affairs that affect us. I know I'm simplifying, and most would scream about US imperialism, but with this IS making their own country, and with both Russia obviously and China subtlety making plays for more real estate of our planet, I'm feeling we should have kept what we had when we had it.

What does ISIS/ISIL want?
To establish an Islamic State.

Where geographically does it want to establish an Islamic State?
The Levant region, which includes Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Cyprus and an area in southern Turkey. See the map at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_State_of... .

How does it fund its movement?
Terrorist activities aimed at extorting money from countries willing to pay.

Who pays ISIL?
While it may work in Europe, the United States refuses to fund ISIL by paying ransom.

Who are the main stakeholders — should be most concerned — when it comes to ISIL?
The Levant region, which includes Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Cyprus and an area in southern Turkey. And, oh yes, let's not forget Big Oil.

Why would the US even consider single-handedly intervening to save the Levant region from ISIL?
Big Oil tries to keep the US and its European allies dependent on oil.

Should the US single-handedly intervening to save the Levant region from ISIL?
No — of course not! The rest of the world needs to take action other than looking to the US to save them from external threats. And the US needs to break its dependence on Big Oil.

Should the rest of the world keep funding ISIL?
Definitely no!

The TRADEGY of WWII is, that despite the military victories of that war, the BIG WINNERS were not the American People, but rather the pro-NAZI War Profiteers.

Written succinctly.

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure---one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."

From David Rockefeller's book "Memoirs."

Your suggestion that US Military could have been more wisely is correct. But, the long and short of it, is that our Military is under the control people who are "....working against the best interests of the United States...."

Believe me, Obama was ORDERED into Libya, and Obama had no thought about Congressional approval.
