ISIS vs. wishful thinking?


Recommended Posts

maybe we can scare the hell outta them with some fierce rhetoric? (or set our scalps ablaze)

 

you know, it's funny how unimportant the city of Palmyra has come to be to progressives all of a sudden.

 

isis is about to destroy history but nothing but solemn quietness.

 

"fabulous" -ratso rizzo :huh:

Where is Europe on this? 1 billion people in Europe and no one there is saying anything about this. Europe expects the US to be the "world policeman" just like during WW I and WW II.

As I said before the USA should partner with Russia and back the Syrian government in the mission to defeat ISIS. 

 

The removal of dictators is the reason ISIS exist.    Therefore even if we were to send in troops and defeat ISIS,  without strong military lead governments in the area a new form of ISIS would spring back up in a few years.     OR do you wish to do what McCain wanted;  100,000 or more US troops in the region for many decades to keep the peace?

How about 100,000 French troops, 100,000 British troops, 100,000 Italian troops, 100,000 German troops, 100,000 Greek troops, and NO US troops.

I don't think any foreign troops are necessary.   If Russia and the USA supported the Syrian Army that army should be able to defeat ISIS in Syria.      With Iraq;  well as Powell said,  since we broke it we should fix it so IF any foreign troops are necessary it may have to be mostly ours.

The Syrian Wars:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syrian_Wars

 

The Syrian Wars were a series of six wars between the Seleucid Empire and the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, successor states to Alexander the Great's empire, during the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC over the region then called Coele-Syria, one of the few avenues into Egypt. These conflicts drained the material and manpower of both parties and led to their eventual destruction and conquest by Rome and Parthia. Briefly mentioned in the biblical Books of the Maccabees.

maybe such a contingent of us troops over many decades would keep the peace. :)
