I did not vote for him for a reason, and everyday that he is in office solidifies my beliefs.

to save the borders of the countries that were created by monarchical imperialists centuries ago without taking into the account the interests
of different nations that got caught inside their territories.

“It is hard to point to a single instance where, as an international community, we are decisively addressing the root causes of refugee flows,” she said.

Bombing 4 guys in an old pickup truck using F18s and smart bombs probably cost more than a million dollars a head, and did not do much, but only 3.0.
This version seems to feature groups of US “advise and assist”s camped out with the Iraqi Army. Sudden surprise attack with a few suicide car/truck bombers to breach defenses, away go the Iraqi Army on the standard deal with IS that they escape if they leave their new US weapons in good condition and drive/run fast, and the Yanks can go down fighting or surrender to enjoy their throat cutting in town market crowds to cheers of “allahakbar”.
Seems like MS software, plenty of bugs that only get fixed when you buy the next version, which has a different plague of bugs yet to discover, and odd weirdness just to be different.

They can either talk the IS to death or not come back themselves. Either result is fine with me.

Not really. The considerable ethnic and religious groups constituting irreconcilable tribes and clans across the “Fertile Crescent” as well as Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Israel have some ties and similarities to Vietnam?? Not really. Throw this opinion piece in the trash and start over – think and make constructive suggestions as to how to deal with the hyper complex problem.

“We have looked very closely at all possible outcomes, and we know that the operations in Iraq will take weeks not months.”
