Another ground war in Iraq? Not again!

Bloody warmongers never change, never learn, never have and end game in sight that doesn't line their pockets.

I don't really give a stuff about IS/ISIS/ISIL. Nasty buggers for sure but they are getting far too much airtime for what they really are.

The neocons are trying to resurrect their vision of a democratic middle east, brokered by the USA, with the USA the equivalent of the second coming... the middle east people will fall to their knees in thanks.

F*ck Dick Cheney, Paul Bremer, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Bremer, John Bolton, Paul Wolfowitz, Elliot Abrams, and Richard Perle, whose bankrupt ideas the first time around have nearly bankrupted this country, and have ensured horrible warfare in the middle east for decades to come.

Yet, these people want to try it again. They should be tried for treason.

God Almighty... did TX fall off a cliff in an earthquake? SE and I are in agreement in something.

But yes.... IS is just in time for the neocons who were starting to quietly panic that they didn't have a war to fleece their pockets with, bash civil liberties with (witness the infuriating clamp down in Oz), try to win the next election with (both Hilary and the other side) and of course let's not mention Israel.

Boy, you must have hated this guy's gut so much, you had to say it twice!

:lol:

On a serious note, ISIS is obviously thriving on the publicity. This war is not only a war with weapons, but also a war with social media presence. Look at all the movement of the fanatics across the globe just to join the fight.

When else it will be the best time for Islamists to start a war if not when US is busy with trying to stay away from Russian aggression?

When else it is the best time for Putin to start his aggression and be unpunished if not when there is already 6 years of economic recession globally and world tries not to get involved in anything?

One leads to another. I will not be surprised if Chinese occupy US in near future, while EU will express their concern and UN will call for peaceful dialog.

Btw, shouldn't we call for peaceful dialog with Islamists now? Or we call for peaceful dialog only with Russia, everybody else will be bashed immediately?
