    He can promise that all he wants, but that would indeed be a direct attack upon the Constitution of the US, in the US, and therefore a true reason to fight such Islamic extremism in the US itself. And in that case the extremists would lose big time. Remember what happened to Japan for doing the same thing?


    However, in that case we would have even less incentive to invade their own country, which allows them the moral high ground, and increases our costs immeasurably! Why not just allow them to live in the paradise (He%%) that they think they can create in their own countries, they deserve just what they get!!

    I can hardly wait for the next Fox “news” bumper stickers when Willard the ChickenHawk is elected. You know, ‘cause he’s a foreign policy expert.

    “Why not just allow them to live in the paradise (He%%) that they think they can create in their own countries,” They don’t plan to stay there. They plan on forcing their paradise on the entire world.

    I wonder if you had the same sort of “thought” during the Troubles.

    I hope Obama is smart enough to get us out of the entire Middle East . We didn’t “break it in the first place”, as many of those who advocate American participation claim. Middle Eastern society has been broken for longer than the United States has existed. In the history of that region, peace has been a rare situation, always imposed by a government strong enough to prevent people who would otherwise be shooting (or throwing spears at) each other from doing so. It can’t be any different when the majority of people would shoot each other over religious differences that would be considered trivial by anyone who had any education that involved more than one book. And, those who are uneducated are convenient tools to gain power for those few who are not, which provides encouragement to keep them uneducated.

    But the saying " the enemy of my enemy is my friend" does not apply in this case. Each side is our enemy. We are “infidels”, making us more “killable” to each side than the other side and going over there to interfere is of no value to anyone in America. We need to simply stand back, allow them to manage their affairs however they would if we didn’t exist, and maybe in a few hundred years they will work it out. Once they realize that we have lost interest in them, perhaps they will return the favor and ignore us too. Killing each other is a more immediate goal.In those cases where we can infuse some actual education into the mix, that probably would be helpful— which is why they hate teachers more than soldiers. But military interference from America accomplishes nothing except creating hatred for our country, and leaving tanks, guns and bullets where they can be used to prolong the fighting. Granted, mutual hatred for America could bring the two sides together sooner than might otherwise be the case, to attack us, but that doesn’t seem to me to be a desirable outcome. Ultimately, each country belongs to the citizens of that country, and until they fix it themselves, it ain’t fixed.

    Strange but that war with Japan started over access to oil too.

    A policy the U.S. has been pursuing since the end of WWII. The cry of the bigoted and fearful. A problem I’ve been having with my neighbor for years. I have a nice lawn his is a weed patch I know he is trying to take over my lawn and turn it into a weed patch too.

    Yeah..will if we had not bailed and left Iraq totally in 2011 we would not be in this mess today. Yes its there country but US support long term would have made all the difference even minimal support after all the lives lost US Troops killed and maimed and billions spent.
