I'm asking you what you plan to do personally or what public policy proposal you advocate to deal with Islamic aggression. I think the best thing people here in the good 'ol USA can do to prevent Islamic aggression against Americans, whether military "over there" or civilians/military here, is to bring US military back here and prepare defense, not execute offense. What is your plan? A crusade?
Back to Ms. Sturm, at least her daddy is willing to clean up the stateside messes caused by the "interventions" she advocates. I thank him for that service.
So Yemen, Bahrain, the Syrian Civil War (hint), and Iraq, much less eastern province of Saudi Arabia, are not manifestations of the war between Shia and Sunni? And I am no apologist, but I ask you again: Are you going to lead the non-religious crusade? Are you going to ask Trump or Hillary to turn the sand into glass?
Russell, I most sincerely apologize for being a combat veteran (well office jockey in Kuwait for the most part, but the benevolent US government says I can claim it so it must be true) who now believes after seeing the pointlessness of state-directed war that the moniker of Our Savior as the Prince of Peace is the ideal Christians (and non-Christians) should follow. Yes, I am anti-war, and very proud of it. And a practicing Christian, and proud. What I am not willing to do is worship the state. I know I am in the extreme monitory, just like the 1-2% that supported abolition long ago (the ending of state support and sanctioning of slavery, versus the Lincolinites who merely went to war to expand the empire and not cared a lick about slaves). Come join me in the minority Russell and do the right thing. Be a Veteran for Peace.
Tipton: Where in US constitution does it say Congress has enumerated power to be involved in opioid abuse?
Brian, there is a civil war within Islam--which would prevent the Hordes of Arabia to focus on spreading their faith with a sword to Europe and America, save for one of the only things uniting them, getting rid of foreign interference in their fight for the heart of Islam, both religiously and territorially. Why should the US involve itself in that? Is there a constitutional or logical imperative for that? Has it made us here safer, freer, and wealthier? What is your solution? More of the same? A nuclear bomb on Riyadh?
I did say "much" (not all) of the terrorism here, not there, is a result of western meddling. Sure, I feel bad about 11 year olds being killed, but I can't prevent it in Indianapolis, much less Syria.
She is the billionaire heiress to the Sturm family and a parrot of Bill Kristol's failed (or if you believe some countries in Middle East like chaos, stunning success) foreign policy. The paper is just giving voice to the voiceless.
Russell, let's celebrate everything, all the time, except the truth.
Russell, did WWI "Make America Safe Again"? Europe? And I did not disparage anyone. I'm sorry deeper questions make people uncomfortable, but failing to ask deeper questions gets you $18 trillion in debt, war without end, terrorists thriving, and Hillary and Trump as the choices to save us from ourselves.
David, you are on fire!
