Do you like that our government kills innocent men, women, and children in the Middle East? I guess those that lost love ones shouldn't be expected to retaliate, right?

Basically if you read history you'll know it started long before US was even in the region. The radical Muslims were allies with Hitler before we even got in the war. I know you are one of those its none of our business the masses being slaughter around the middle east.

Terrorism is the price of empire.

The Shia and Sunni have been going at it for 1200 years. We ain't gonna stop it.

The surviving Boston bomber is not an Arab and has never been to the ME.

He emigrated as a child from Russia and became a naturalized citizen. He was captain of his high school wrestling team, volunteered and worked as a lifeguard. He was a student living in a dorm.

Reportedly he was mad about the war in Afghanistan.

Terrorists use religion as a tool to rationalize an agenda that has nothing to do with religion.

Yes most acts of recent terrorism have been performed by Muslim extremists. Most Muslims are not extreme.
Most acts of terrorism are being committed against Muslims who are not extreme enough or for the sport of it.

I was not aware that the Boston Nut Jobs was a result of us not sending Troops to fight ISIS. So your saying that if we fight ISIS with our own Troops, on the ground, in their back yard, we will never have another Terrorist attack?

No..it didn't start long before the U.S. was even in the region.

Radical Islam didn't really began to manifest itself in a radical fashion until after WW2. Mostly because Western nations encouraged it as a bulwark against Soviet infiltration of the Middle East.

Never again.
Yea, yea, yea, ....and the last time we "got into it" we lost over 4000 of our own Troops, and we got ISIS as a "Booby" Prize. Lets get into another one, what the heck. Lets send in Troops to Syria, Iraq, and cover the thousands of miles they run around in, lets send Troops into the Ukraine, and help out the self established "New" Government, that took control and ousted an elected Government, by force. May as well send some to Yemen too. Islamists just took over the Islamic Country. They might rent a ship and come here next.

We need to keep doing what we are doing, and let them handle their own Ground War.

What the OP is stating is that our President is a weak willed flaccid eunuch and can't stand up for the decisions he makes.

It's always another President's fault or another injustice of society or another weak link in our constitution or another example of the stupidity of the sheeple that causes him to make the decisions he does or lack there of.

Yeah we got it OP you and yours elected a worthless POS instead of a POTUS.

Live with it, elections have consequences.
