Your response is very typical. Historically speaking.

Doesn't really matter if a State, Proto-State (ISIS), or a Movement (Secular or Religious).

Of course that matters. If it didn't matter, as you claim, you wouldn't have lost in Vietnam. You would have won in Iraq and Afghanistan. But all those cases demonstrate that while the superior firepower of the US, and indeed the much greater rate at which the US kills enemy combatants, they are unable to win the war. You win all the battles, but those are just tactical victories. In the meantime, your opponents keep winning all the strategic victories. And in the end, a strategic victory is what determines who wins a war.

And that is what history has shown, and has always shown and will continue to show.

Vietnam, Iraq, Korea, et al. are just canards by...

They were not Wars of Survival. Just Military Conflicts.

Do you, and others, understand the difference?

Understand, if possible, this is, and will be, a 'Multi-Pronged' Response.

As History Instructs: There is will a difference between Fighting External Jihadists, and Internal Jihadists.

Neither will be pleasant, nor imaginable - Presently.

Sorry, but it is the truth.

The Moral Side wins, if they kill and destroy their Enemy's Soldiers, Supporters, Income, War making Capability, and if need be, their Family's. At a far greater rate than the Enemy can.

You are talking about waging a war against a state. This worked against the Nazis because the Nazis had a state. A state means there is a hierarchy that can be disrupted, there are organizations and institutions that organize the war effort, which can be attacked, there is an industrial base that can be bombed, etc. IS is not a state, and as a result it has non of the traditional weaknesses of a state. There are no industrial sites that we can bomb to disrupt their war economy. There are no official bureaucracies housed in ministries that we can bomb. There is no hierarchical structure that we can effectively disrupt.

Now all that you have left are bombing enemy combatants. Well great, there tens of thousands of them, all spread throughout the region. They don't wear uniforms, they don't move in nice big formations, so bombing them is difficult. Worse, bombing them causes collateral damage, which drives the local population to support them, which only enhances their grip on the region.

And like I said, if you want to bomb their families, you have to start bombing the Netherlands, France, Germany, Russia and the UK as well. I'm sure you'll agree with me that this would be an incredibly stupid idea.

This is one of those instances, where the Ethical and Moral, as you are Мишель, causes more deaths and destruction, by not acting sooner.

Acting for the sake of acting is a dumb idea. Before you can act effectively, you must understand your enemy, you must understand the nature of the conflict and you must understand yourself. In this case, it appears we don't understand our enemy, the conflict and ourselves, and as a result the way we act ends up being ineffective. And no, genocide and war crimes will not help us win the war nor will they save more lives. The whole 'peace through superior firepower' idea is not something that works in real life.

Your response is very typical. Historically speaking.

Doesn't really matter if a State, Proto-State (ISIS), or a Movement (Secular or Religious).

Sorry. But 'The Ending' (unimaginable to you and most) will be the same. As it has always been.

Glenn...
It is you who postulates a Nuclear Response.

Hopefully he's not.
The region where most jihadists operates are large.
Middle East, Northern Africa, Indonesia....
Europe countries as well:(

Understanding, as in all cases:

The Democracy has to destroy The Will and Ability, with The Will regarding these present day Jihadists, as the past Jihadists, possibly more important.

A Scared Democracy does...

All wars are terrible. The Moral Side uses the exact same tactics to win the war, as its Evil Adversary. In this case the Jihadists. In the past - The Nazis.

The Moral Side wins, if they kill and destroy their Enemy's Soldiers, Supporters, Income, War making Capability, and if need be, their Family's. At a far greater rate than the Enemy can.

This is the Historical problem a Moral Democracy has:

Its unwillingness to accept what must be done, until the Threat becomes so immediate, that the reaction is more terrible, than needed to be done in the past.

This is one of those instances, where the Ethical and Moral, as you are Мишель, causes more deaths and destruction, by not acting sooner.


So true Clyde so let's roll out those nukes and be done with the whole area .

Sounds cruel but i can see no other way to solve the problem as all side there are to blame so nuke them all and be done with it .

Glenn...

You are adept in 'Setting up a Straw Dog, and Knocking it down'.

Let's wait and see, what the Military Leaders say what is needed.

Remember: The Military, in a Western Democracy, does not make Policy. Only the Civilian Leadership does.

The Civilian Leadership, in this instance, would make the Judgement that The Jihadists must be stopped/destroyed, to protect its own Peoples and Children, Democracy, Freedoms, 'Way of Life', etc.

The Civilian Leadership asks for the Military's Recommendation, and accepts, modifies, or rejects their Recommendations.

Understanding all Ideology's, Religions, etc., HAVE been defeated in the past:

It is only the WILL of the Civilian Leadership, and its People, to do 'What Must Be Done' (whatever that is), that is lacking.

Glenn...

It is you who postulates a Nuclear Response.

Why?

What do those, who are Trained and Experienced in these matters, say?

After all, I (along with Clyde) believe it's naive to think we are not going to fail as a nation. Look at history! All nations eventually fail.


Oh, that's what Clyde's been saying?
Thanks for sharing ... what I figured out by age 18.

ALL, including Roman Catholic's, in a Free Country, have the 'Right' to be heard, and attempt to influence events.

Correct?
Incorrect. Falun Gong have no right to be heard. ISIL has no right to be heard. Roman Catholic's in Church of England times. Christians in Rome. Jews in Saudia Arabia. Why there is no such thing as a free country. Because for so long in our history, country meant religion.

Even in the USA, there are far to many who scream it is a Christian country; only tolerating a smattering of other religions, then only if they don't get uppity!

We do understand you, and you inner....

Very terrible.

What we did to the Nazis, their Families, and their Children, during that war:

Always has been. Always will be.

The problem is there is no war.

Well, from a more practical perspective, hitting the families of the fighters of IS it means we have to start bombing France, The Netherlands, Germany, the UK, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and Russia. Just to name a few countries that aren't where the actual battlefield is located.

A private members bill will be put before the Australian parliment on aprrox August 12th the next sitting of government . It is being proposed buy the Labor and Greens and Independents .

Unlike other country's we don't need a Referendum to allow same sex marrage to be legal , only a passage of Law .

The second in command under P.M Tony Abbot , Warren Truss said on the @ABCNEWS24 interview said we all here about America's Courts giving gay rights to gays but we have not herd off the Italy Courts disallowing it in Italy .

There has been some news witch will air these next few days about the Italian Mafia and links to the Australian Liberal Party (Tony Abbots) whom is a catholic .
Ireland is a strong catholic country . I think Truss forgot that ! , however they to have allow'd same sex marriage .

So will Australia allow it or will the Pope be allow'd to stop it !!!!!!!

Stay tune'd to see a bigot and Facist in action the P.M of Australia..........

In a Free and Democratic Country:

"and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them"

ALL, including Roman Catholic's, in a Free Country, have the 'Right' to be heard, and attempt to influence events.

Correct?

Of course there is A War.

The Good, Ethical, and Moral, Western Peoples will not admit it.

Nothing new.

Just makes 'The Response', when finally admitting. That much worse.

Yep

There is Hate Speech, by some, in all groups.

So?

I agree with Cliff.

We are speaking of the Present, or Historically Near Term Past.

When 'White' Churches are burned down. Or Black Hate Groups/Individuals enter 'White' Churches, and Murder their Parishioners:

Then I may understand, but not condone, your rantings.

When register to vote in the US you have to state your race.
Why?
One for instance with Scandinavian heritage and is race number 5.
Can anybody explain US catagories of human race?

You must be mistaken, it is not a REQUIREMENT to state your race. Decline to state is an acceptable answer.

Don't Think so.
Registered Voters in the State of Florida, U.S.A. as of 31 March 2015.
http://flvoters.com/
Alanna S. Torres. She is listed as Multi-racial.
What is Multi-racial?

Good question.

What is Black? 100%, 75%, 50%, 25%, 10%, Tone of Skin?

What is White? 100%, 75%, 50%, 25%, 10%, Tone of Skin?

What is Multi-racial, and which races are involved?

Can those, on The Left and The Right, wishing to separate us, explain.

And When 'it' is Found Out, White DEM/Lib/Progressive Sympathizers to The 'Black' 'Experience, or Black Agitators are Behind These Crimes...

The 'K' Brothers and 'White' Supreme 'ists', would Know Better than to...

Yep.

OMG!!!

When you get a 'Rash' of these crimes (did investigate in the past, and still follow):

A few. I repeat A FEW, are set Intentionally for Political, Insurance reasons, or are simply a 'Non-Intentional' Fire.

So?

Most. I repeat MOST, are set by White Supremacists.

Well it seems that to fight terrorism and or the jihadists will require a different approach.
Infiltration, Identification, And then assasanation.
Maybe the world should take lessons on how the Mossad handles threats.
If you have sometnhing that wants to kill you. Do you react to it, Or do you go and kill it?
Do you make the pain of retaliation so fierce that it makes them think twice before they attack again?

I dont have a clue. But kissing there ass dsoent seem to be working.

I believe Israel is still under attack, by those who wish to Exterminate them. And nothing they do, short of... Will stop this evil.

These Pro-Nazi, Death to Jews/Christians/Not 'Them' Types, must understand they will Lose, or be eliminated. No amount of assassination will have them believe this.

Only a 'Total War' to protect your children from being Beheaded , in their neighborhood classrooms, will work.

Always has been. Always will be.

Note: As History, and Human Nature, instructs us:

After they Terrorize our Mothers, and our mother's believe their children's lives are at risk.

How many of the murderer's children, will they demand be killed, and burned to death in their cribs (as in WWII). Nothing really changes.

Sorry. But this horrendous, perhaps genocidal response from a Scared Democracy, is normal.

Back in 2000:

Jeb was supposed to be the Presidential Candidate, not "W". Long story.

He would have made a better President, than his brother.

Yes he would have but then again that's a pretty low bar to get over.

Obama can't even get over that "low bar".

Looking at the 'Field'. Both Democrat and Republican:

All are better than Obama.

Looking at all the past Presidents:

The only ones worse than Obama, were #1 James Buchanan (of course), and #2 Woodrow Wilson.

Upon further reflection: Wilson and Obama are tied for Second Place, in the Presidential Hall of Shame.

As Florida Votes, understanding the Presidential Election is a State/Elector's (not popular vote), would be correct.

The Republicans are the 'Lesser of Two Evils'.

Hmmm. Bush the III.

Jeb Bush Presidential Ambitions
After leaving office in 2007, Bush remained active on a number of political issues. He has been an outspoken supporter of the Common Core Standards, a national educational initiative, and of immigration reform. In December 2014, Bush showed his interest in possibly returning to elected office. He posted on his Facebook page that he had "decided to actively explore the possibility of running for President of the United States."

In January 2015, Bush launched a political action committee. He also posted the first chapter of an e-book about his political views and emails from when he was governor on his official website. http://jebemails.com/home

On June 15, 2015, Bush announced his presidential bid, becoming the third member of his family to run for the nation's highest office. As he kicked off his campaign, he told a crowd at Miami Dade College that he would “take Washington – the static capital of this dynamic country – out of the business of causing problems.” He added: “I know we can fix this. . .because I’ve done it."

Back in 2000:

Jeb was supposed to be the Presidential Candidate, not "W". Long story.

He would have made a better President, than his brother.
