Been reading a bunch of media since Nice

Op-Eds at various sources. The primary theme at many is that we aren't doing enough in the "terrorist source" regions. Aren't killing enough people. The pre-dominance of the failed neoconservative view in the mainstream is astounding. ISIS is in severe decline. We ARE killing a lot of people, just not by conventional means. And as a result of a certain patience the anti-extremist factions in many of those places are becoming stronger and more effective. Actions ALWYS escalate as a force grows weaker. And become more spectacular and suicidal (see the final siege of Berlin) as well. What is glaringly obvious is that NOTHING that happens anywhere here or abroad escapes the fingering of the current POTUS as the direct and ultimate cause. A President who (if we get to have a) history will very well be viewed quite favorably. The stakes are high enough, as created by now nearly 35 years of post-Cold War cynical opportunism on the part of powerful interests to do all of the same destructive wrong things over. We made this bed....with the always desperate to hang on British plutocracy. Keeping that out of the public mind has become an art form. Best defense there was against it were the genuine conservatives in the (considered) conservative parties....the GOP and The Torries.... of the 60s and 70s. Nearly extinct, presently.

Re: Been reading a bunch of media since Nice

What I would like to know is how many of the resident right here served in the military.  Many are dead set against the use of drones to kill our enemies but cheer on the police use of a robot with a bomb on board to take out the Dallas shooter.  They seem to desire boots on the ground as the only way to effectively do battle.  I personally believe there is a direct corelation between that thought and whether or not a person has served in the military.

That's why we want a secure border. To keep the terrorist out. Let Europe defend themselves. Let them fly their own drones. Why do they need ours? Drones kill civilians.

Re: Been reading a bunch of media since Nice

You would rather American soldiers die instead of terrorists and maybe some civilians that you don't like anyway????

Re: Been reading a bunch of media since Nice

Isn't it a war crime to kill civilians? If you were worried about terrorist GITMO should still be full. There we had terrorist in a place where they could do no harm but we cut them loose because of their rights.

Re: Been reading a bunch of media since Nice

If we want to be brutally honest here, the root of where this modern day (Islamic terrorism) started was the US and West`s support of Israel.  I support Israel, but what you see is the result of over a generation over "there" that had the rallying point of the Palestinians.  Now, it`s morphed into God only knows what with millenial Muslims wanting "70 virgins" and a caliphate of Islamic domination and procreating with blonde Nordic godesses and Levis jeans and Dynasty & Dallas and Coca-Cola.    Muslims know how to and enjoy making babies and they are just plum out breeding the European stock and are drawn to the good life of the west like a mosquito to a sweaty,fat guy wearing shorts.   

 

The trajectory is they will eventually breed us out of existence regardless what we do.   But to prolong what we have you`d better elect Trump and build walls, because that "strength through diversity" bull crap was the greast hoax ever perpetrated on western culture.

Not unless it is intentional.  Collateral damage always happens in war--even with boots on the ground.  Why don't you join the army and volunteer to go fight ISIS?

Re: Been reading a bunch of media since Nice

Don't you think we should let the muslims deal with the muslims? Secure our borders until they get rid of their terrorist.
