62. wow. so much wrong with your response, it's just sad.

 

the comparison with Europe to begin with. I can't think of a poorer comparison from a historical vantage. First of all, we didn't create the situation in Europe that led to WWII. We had an enormous role in creating the conditions currently extant in the middle east. Secondly, ISIS isn't remotely comparable to Nazi Germany; not in scope, not in capabilities.

Conveniently skirted? Way to insert a nasty and utterly false insinuation. Is it the same as 2003? I'd say the intent is not the same. I don't believe that President Obama wanted this. Having said that, the result is more likely than not to be much the same because we will be doing many of the same things. Hasn't it even given you a second's thought that we are doing just what ISIS wants? And don't you wonder why they want to draw us into this?

You are repeating a meme with little foundation. They are what Al-Qaeda morphed into. This is hardly a surprise to anyone who is actually doing any research.

There is a shitload of information about this and I note you contradict yourself by saying that ISIS is an offshoot of A-Q.

Yes, ISIS would like to take over the world. They do not have the capability to do so. Seriously, you think they stand a chance against Iran? Iraq and Syria are easy pickings. They are failed nations.

No, I'm not ignoring what others say. I'm disagreeing with them.

You are willfully ignoring the mountains of evidence in the form of recent history. I think that's intellectually dishonest and shabby.
