“…The media back in the States made a big thing of the Iraqi government elections, but it was a nonevent for me. I wasn’t even out that day; I caught it on TV.
I never really believed the Iraqis would turn the country into a truly functioning democracy, but I thought at one point that there was a chance. I don’t know that I believe that now. It’s a pretty corrupt place.
But I didn’t risk my life to bring democracy to Iraq. I risked my life for my buddies, to protect my friends and fellow countrymen. I went to war for MY country, not Iraq. My country sent me out there so that bullshit wouldn’t make its way back to our shores.
I never once fought for the Iraqis. I could give a flying fuck about them.” –Chris Kyle, American Sniper
America’s Leaders are neither trained nor ready to lead.
The Kurds are the only people in the Middle East ready for prolonged, hardcore war and they are brave fighters like Americans without the cowardly blood running through their veins that cause others in that region to surrender. The women shouldn’t be fighting men’s war, but they are, and bravely so. We need to give them the weapons so they can do their job that nobody else seems to be doing–or want to do. And we need to do it now, not next year, not next month, not next week, but now, TODAY!
The United States cannot wait while an incompetent president fails to act in retaking Iraq and to prevent further loss to ISIS terrorists. We cannot wait one year to train fighters in Iraq, Syria or Saudi Arabia. That is an asinine plan. We need boots on the ground now. Last month. Since last June. We need to land the entire fighting force of America’s First Team, the 1st Cav Division, on the ground now, followed by the Marines and other divisions and we need to train the Kurds in direct combat as we go, giving them the ultimate weapons to win the fight and establish a free state. We need Special Forces and Rangers and SEALs–America’s Best–to go in and do their job and do it right. We need gunship’s and Apaches saturating the skies over Iraq, Syria and Turkey, so many so the ISIS will think darkness has fallen upon them.
We need the best and most innovated war equipment at our disposal, and we need to get it deployed. We need, heavy artillery and we need a full recall of the most seasoned combat fighting troops the ignorant president laid off so we can annihilate the ISIS now by hunting them down and exterminating them, every Goddamn one of them, wherever they run, wherever they hide. And we should send the same message George W. Bush sent, “Any nation that harbors these terrorists shall feel the U.S. militarily landing on its back.” PERIOD!
We can defeat the ISIS–or any terrorists on the face of this planet–the Hamas, Hezbollah or any or all of them if politicians would just get the hell out of the way and let the experienced military do the job it is trained to do and the boys have lived their entire lives to do. America’s men were raised by fathers and grandfathers who went to war. They are ready to fight and they are ready right NOW! It’s in their genes and they don’t need some dumb-ass politician making pansies out of them. They didn’t join the military to stand on some base polishing shoes, they joined to fight for democracy, the world over. Now, let them go and let them do it. They are fighting men and women and they are battle born. So, let’s get them over there and do their job they were trained to do. NOW!
American has never had a prouder military than after a victory and a victory is calling.
Should we partner with Iran to wage a joint war against the self-named Islamic State of Iraq and Syria? The short answer is yes. Yes, but you will never see it happen. Why is it a yes, that we ought to partner with a symbolic foe against a common enemy? Why?
There is a long-stirring division between our two countries primarily over Iran’s nuclear enhancements. The left and the right say no to partnership with Iran because of that long-term dispute over nuclear achievement, among other things such as knowledge that Iran supplies weapons to other terrorist organizations.
Are we not also currently at odds with Russia and Vladamir Putin over issues such as Ukraine? But don’t we have a lasting relationship or partnership with science, space exploration, space-station research and transit and with medical knowledge sharing as well as other social endeavors? We certainly do and none of them are being threatened to be scrapped due to our differences over Ukraine or with political opposition. So, why can’t we use the same logical sense and apply it with Iran? Besides, if we did we just might turn a foe into a less hostile adversary.
We have absolutely little to lose by teaming up with Iran in a coalition against ISIS terrorists. If anything, we stand to gain since Iran just might unleash the exterminating powers needed to rid the world of the most barbaric subhuman existence known to modern man.
Iran is a Shia Islam nation and the ISIS are Sunni. They are similar in belief, but yet have differences. There is nothing more perfect than a radical Islamic nation joining the fight to exterminate a radical Islamic wanna be. If there is, let me know what that might be. Or, is it that we don’t want to exterminate the ISIS? Maybe we want to house them down in Gitmo so we can let them loose later on so they can breed and regenerate. There are some who call themselves Americans who would enjoy just such a thing.
A partnership with Iran is not a bad idea to fight the ISIS, an organization which could have and should have been eliminated or at least severely reduced months, even years ago, if we had leaders in this country and around the world. Such partnership is by no means an offer to climb into bed together. We shouldn’t trust the Iranians, but if we are to have no boots on the ground, then trust ought not be an issue. It is a single mission to conduct a single outcome; to destroy the ISIS terrorist movement. Period.
We need to rethink, ah, but the problem, do we have leaders who can think?
We Must Pray for Ukraine and Plead with Vladimir Putin to recognize the sovereignty of Ukraine; for him to ask the Pro-Russian forces and civilians in Ukraine to give peace a chance. My heart is broken since I have friends on both sides of this conflict that is the dark reminiscence of World War II’s Ukrainian-Russian conflict, where more people died than anywhere in the world, including the Jewish Holocaust. Ukraine has one of the longest histories in the world of suppression. The world must recognize her right to sovereignty. The killing will only further open wounds of hostility and burn hatred into the minds and hearts of the lost soul’s loved one’s for the rest of their lives. Killing the innocent can never right a wrong. Killing the defenseless can never cure failed leadership. Killing the wrong people, that had no choice than to be where they were during the time of war, can never solve problems. The killing of civilians is never justified no matter the reason for the war. Never. The voices of the innocent cry in the shadows of war. We must not tolerate the slaying of innocent civilians, for either side, during the course of war. It is simply not acceptable in the 21st Century. No exceptions, no excuses. Period! We must stand for peace, for what else is there worth standing for? All we are saying, is give peace a chance.
