Because they've been so peaceful and calm up to this point.

If we're not careful, we might provoke them to violence.

Yeah its like an actual threat from Iraq but they've called wolf so many times no1curr

Stupid bar bet. ISIS runs out of militants long before USA runs out of bombs.

Lord knows the last thing we want is a bunch of radical Muslims pissed off at us

/that would be unprecedented

Somebody has to find something bad about anything President Obama does, especially Fox News clones.

Right now, top ISIS researchers are using different hammers to find out how they can weaponize the depleted uranium they stole.  They aren't so sure about the flying dildo thing.  They don't want to be the laughing stock of the middle east.

It's what they do.  It's in their DNA.

Fighting ISIS will make them want to retaliate.

Not fighting ISIS and they think we're weak and attack us anyway.

One way or another as some as they have a way they will try to attack us because of our association with Israel and our other actions n the middle east.

If bombing them weakens them and helps prevent a fundamentalist state spring up... might as well bomb them.
 
2014-08-09 01:50:32 PM  
So, bombing a gang of mad-dog killers who plan to destroy America will make them plan destroy America.

Got it.

As a member of the Barry is a Terrible President fan club I say he is doing the right thing.

Who cares is ISIS/ISIL is pissed at us? Fark them.

Keep bombing the shiat out of these monsters Obama...

Yeah, it's not like not pissing them off is going to help matters.
 
2014-08-09 01:54:02 PM  
I loved it when they said that they wanted/were going to fly the flag over the White House. High comedy right there.

I am really starting to think that we should become a little more isolationist. The problem with that is that it did not work out all that well the last time. I guess that the best way to handle this is blowing them up at 20000 feet, though it is not the preferred solution. I would rather negotiate a way out.

Yeah I know, that isn't gonna happen either...

Yeah I'm really not understanding the concern here. It's not like they can get much more barbaric.

They're already about as pissed off as they can be. Bombing them will result in them being equally mad and more dead.

I'm normally the "violence begets violence" type but I really see stopping ISIS as necessary at this point. From what I understand, they essentially want to take over the government of every country in the Middle East and unite them all under one ruling power... and if they succeeded at that, who's to stay they'd stop there and wouldn't continue to try to take over more governments? They're the most ambitious violent group in terms of wanting to take over multiple countries since WWII Germany, so yeah, somebody needs to put a stop to that shiat.
 
2014-08-09 01:57:21 PM  
they need a bronze plan.
 
2014-08-09 01:57:25 PM  
Great. We reduced Iraq to North Korea levels of empty threats.

Because Obama has repeatedly told us Moslims are peaceful.  None of your worries can come fro peaceful people.

Ah. Fearmongering, how quaint. Now ISIS is the boogeyman, because Al-Qaeda's not scary any more. ISIS is coming for you- to protect yourself, make sure you give up more of your rights so we can Protect(tm) you, Citizen.
 
2014-08-09 02:00:52 PM  
The Iraqis need to agree to our demands to form a more inclusive government. Once that happens, we can bomb these Iron Age Islamofascists for real. I like the tone and scale of this action so far - limited strikes to help the Kurds and ethnic minorities in the north, but if Iraq wants more, they need to fix some of the underlying problems first.

I agree that airstrikes alone won't solve the issue, but airstrikes coordinated with Iraqi and Kurdish forces on the ground sure could.

You get Kurdish and Iraqi forces anywhere near each other and it'll be a blood bath.

So you think it's an invention that ISIS is an extremists Islamic group taking over Iraq? The dorm room conspiracy shiat is a little silly in this instance.

The Iraqis just helped arm the Kurds. Even Turkey seems to be helping them, now. A common enemy has that effect on people.

Yes. Today's baby Muslims become tomorrow's ISIS.

Kill. Them. All.

Now, if I had my way, I'd say the same about Christians and Jews and Buddhists and literally everyone who has the delusion that they know what "god" wants from them. But I'll settle for wiping out Ebola before we move on the the flu.

bigsteve3OOO: Because Obama has repeatedly told us Moslims are peaceful.  None of your worries can come fro peaceful people.


Sarcasm duly noted, but: Quran (2:191-193) - "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing... but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful.   And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone."

tl;dr: Kill all infidels until the only religion left is Islam. This is what they actually believe. This is what their religious texts teach them. This ISIS group seems to be operating according to this teaching with the goal of large-scale regional, if not world, domination. It's an unfortunate necessity at this point for the civilized world to step up and put a stop to this.

I don't know; that strategy didn't work in Afghanistan or Iraq. There are plenty of angry young men over there willing to blow themselves up to get a few of us. In the right light; we look like invaders and usurpers.

I'm waiting for the second paragraph, where you show that "someone" irrefutably equates to "United States of America".

Then we should radically change our foreign policy from shaping the region to annihilating the region right?  Or do you have another way.

iheartscotch: In the right light; we look like invaders and usurpers.


We ARE invaders and usurpers. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing is totally irrelevant- it's literally true. We invaded, took out the government and helped get the previous head of state executed. That's pretty much the textbook definition of invasion and usurpation.

Whether it was a good thing or a bad thing morally or ethically is a totally different discussion. But we did do those things.

Beers repeating.

More to the point, their enemies start winning on the ground long before we've dropped many bombs.

The shia and the sunnis have been fighting since our fav. 'prophet' snuffed it.

They hate each other more than they ever hated the WEST.
Wait a while, let them thin the herd, and anyone who still cares can walk in
without firing a shot
