Rusty's Plan for ISIS, Europe, and Pretty Much Everything from Now On
What have I learned over the past decade and a half? No matter how hard we try, there's nothing we can do to bring peace and stability to the Middle East. So, we shouldn't try.So, my plan for ISIS? Nothing. We should do absolutely nothing.

Problem: Who Is supplying weapons to whom?
Worse: Who is Not being supplied; And their chances against a armed opponent.
IF, the wannabe king wants to get in it: Nuke it from space. it is the only way to be sure.
Next problem: The wannabe king and the dysfunctional Borg rep. want us to be disarmed And import jihadis here.

Let's see if this opinion changes when eventually Isis pulls a "Paris" in the US
It's in everyone's interest to see Isis go. And maybe people are bad but it seems like today there is one religion in particular causing a disproportionate amount of trouble.

Sorry, but while going after ISIS big-time is not a bad idea, Islam, itself, is the millstone. It's nothing more than the globalization of predatory 7th Century A.D. Arab tribal cultural under a thin veneer of religion. And if you plan doesn't include constraining, undermining, or eradicating Islam, itself, you don't have a plan. What you have is a hope.
LIke geographical sanctary, ideological sanctuary will get you killed.

I think we can't ignore what is going on there.

Except for Israel and the Kurds we need to drown it all away and start over.

They need to stay and change the place or simply live with it.
If they bring it to us though....well Bang a Nuclear Gong and get it on for real.
I for one am sick and tired of Islam and it's killers and refugees.

Once your folks get done hanging GW Bush they will be thirsty for more people to join him, you may not like their choices.

So we hand major oil producing regions and Europe to Russia and their allies du jour, how did that work out last time? This war is inevitable and the longer we delay the worse it will be.

Unfortunately it will be cheaper to help our allies fix this threat BEFORE it is lapping at our shores. Perhaps developing is a will by them to do so (which would be a major problem if they are not).

We can be 100% energy independent...Just not under democrat rule.
No Muslim States in the ME want ANY Syrian refugees...so why do we?
Putin wants to fight and lead...Let him fight and lead...
Assad is better than our alternative.
The invasion of Iraq was wrong...Bush was wrong, but so was Hillary and her vote of support.
Muslims hate us by creed not by nature.
Go to Mass, Repent, .....You were told this was not going to end with Unicorns and Hugs.

Yep. The story of Zouheir, the supposed Muslim Hero in Paris who had turned away a suicide bomber --was bogus. Never happened.
Why am I not surprised?

We don't want to get on the ground with ISIS, after Iraq and knowing how that turned out that is a good point. So what if we don't?
Announce that ISIS wants to live in the 7th Century so we plan to assist. Contact the owners of the telecom and electric grids in ISIS held territory and announce that as of today they are to switch it off until such time as ISIS isn't in control of an area. That we give them this option to speed the rebuilding but it isn't exactly a volunteer thing either.... Three days after the first announcement we plan on knocking down any cell towers or phone switches still radiating RF and any generating stations still running. Same for TV/radio broadcasts. How long do they survive without Facebook and other social media? Apparently the Jihadis love it as much or more than teens in the West. Then there is the whole sitting the dark thing, not fun at all. And it is something a purely air campaign is able to accomplish.
A week later cut all fuel supplies so generators come to a halt and all vehicle traffic soon comes to a stop.
Into the radio quiet zone thus created it should be pretty easy to locate any remaining activity and considering the nature of ISIS assume anything still lit up or emitting radio frequency energy is ISIS and drop some Kaboom! on it. Drive them into the stone age, for real.

Cut and run? We must fight them there or else they will follow us back home? We can't let all those who have given there all die in vain?
We are (almost) at the tipping point? These latest attacks just show how desperate the terrorists are?
