[quote]Is it true that if they are killed by a woman that they don't get their 72 virgins, or something like that? [/quote]
Yes, a woman pilot is absolute horror to them because they won't be able to know which plane she is flying. The belief is that if they are killed [b]in battle[/b] by a woma...

Somebody please define "victory" for the U.S given this chart. Its a bit cartoonish, but also illustrates the complexity of the task and the risks associated with additional military activity in the god-forsaken part of the world.

Iran may join the coalition yet. And Putin is thinking about crashing the party - he has 11 million Muslims inside his borders & Assad is his buddy.

I think that the worst deal we made was spending $18 billion on training & equipping the Iraqi military. What did we get from that?
The only benefit that I can see is that Iraq may have uncovered their track team for the 2016 olympics because only those with enough speed & stamina would have s...

Where would ISIS have gotten nukes? I call bull shite on this based on the fact that Israel would have know before the democrat, and would have destroyed them by now. Other than Israel, who else has nukes in the Middle East? Answer - no one....

Putin took a hit this week when ExxonMobil was forced to cease drilling their first Artic well in the Kara Sea. Exxon & Rosneft are partners in this venture and it will most likely be continued in a few years, but Exxon provided the technology that Rosneft lacked in order to drill into what may be ...

[quote]There ARE US ground troops on the ground in the Middle East. Not only that, but Obama is sending more US ground troops and the number will be several thousand at least.
Now, if you are praising Obama for not sending tens of thousands of US ground troops to Iraq/Syria, then, I understand.

[quote]So, besides these US airstrikes, these US troops and this planned but illegal armed attack on Syria, to what "inaction" do you refer, Sir?[/quote]
Thought it would be obvious - but I was referring to troops on the ground in the Middle East.

[quote]Obama is thoroughly mistrusted and disliked by other world leaders. I doubt he will get any of the countries you mentioned to commit ground troops.
The only people who think highly of Obama are the American Left, the Democrats and the mainstream media. The rest of the Universe knows the tr...

I did and for a reason. They have a lot more at risk than the US does. Ultimately all of the Western European countries do as well and I think Turkey being on the northern borders with Syria & Iraq has an unmet...

It is my opinion that our European Allies and Israel should finally contribute boots on the ground. They are at greater risk than we are and we've already spilt more blood than was necessary. Germany and France have yet to commit boots on the ground in Iraq nor has Israel. Or is there a logical r...

Do you not agree that the 55 + group can have increased percentages AND the number of retirees also increases, because that is the situation. Its about the total mass of the population group.
