yikes. They bombed caves to cut off icis movement but damn I don't like where this is headed. however something has to be done about that group who's spreading terror in all these different countries.

at the end of the day the people who are commenting about america asking for a war... you have to ask your self if you would leave terrorist alone with their random terror acts.

Americans get blamed if we act or do not act, so we make the best choice we can with the information available at the time. We didn't ask for this war but we have choices on how we conduct it. If you leave ours and our allies alone, we generally leave you alone.

Freedom is messy, and often dangerous. But the only alternative is tyranny.
Brown, E. William. Perilous Waif (Alice Long Book 1) (p. 145). Kindle Edition.


"In war, our successes and our failures will define the course of human history. If we lose this war, then that history may very well come to an end. When this war demands sacrifices, remember that the price of victory is always paid in blood. Sometimes it's ours, sometimes it's theirs, but the price is always blood." Bloom, A.D. (2014-12-02).

I think what you meant to say was, "If you do what we want then, we generally leave you alone".
We have a distinct pattern of behavior.

Funny you should say that lol

We started the wars with several middle east countries including Afghanistan. Now once again, we are picking a fight with a country we had no issue with called Syria. And people wonder why the middle east hates us so much. Afghanistan is run by the taliban who cannot even properly run the country. Why we keep engaging in battles that have no meaning is the real question.

"How to get along with super powers, simple notes left by governments"

Russia : IF you don't touch us we leave you alone, also, vodka.

China : If you make us rich, we leave you alone, also, don't touch us, also, our face is pretty, no spitting at it.

US: Don't touch anyone in the planet, with anything that would possibly cause us even one casualty in future, also don't touch our financial interests, also if we don't like your name we have the right to kill you, we also reserve the right to test any bombs anywhere we want and did I forget we won't kill you if you leave us alone ? ( sorry lied, I mean't we kill you even if you leave us alone as long as it profits us, or lets us test our new toys). Also we reserve the right to brake all our deals and alliances every 4 years or when we so please, don't like ? we got nukes.

For the full note from US government, please refer to the 371 page US manual " how to suck american dick so you don't get nuked today, tomorrow is different, it depends, how much you got ?"

Proto ISIS was our allies in Libya
Maybe CIA finally got wise and decided to start wiping their pawns before they get out of control.

So the moral is "Don't Allie with the United States or you will get a knife in the back when we don't need you'

Is that really how you want the United States viewed by the world?

To be fair to him it seems to me like it's just how he wants the states to be viewed by the non-white world.

I'm not sure that this reflects any policy changes. It does reinforce the message of toughness the administration is trying to convey - even if it is just symbolic.
