When we capture their combatants, they receive almost hotel level accommodations.
Yes, I've heard that Guantanamo Bay is a real Savoy-style luxury break from the drama...
& breakfast in bed comes with a few free gallons of water that the porters & bell boys will even help you to drink.
Real 5 Star accommodation!
Compared to a newly welded four foot square bar cage facility with a freshly petrol soaked jumpsuit?

Totally agree on the Kurds. An admirable bunch that we have left hanging, probably due to Turkish concerns.
To a lessor degree the Egyptians have shown mettle as well.....
When they capture combatants, they behead them, burn them alive or just shoot them

If there was a gang somewhere kidnapping and doing mass rapes and torturing the citizens in a US state and they took over a city should we discuss why the criminals turned to crime or first go in there IMMEDIATELY with all force and stop the torture of the people?
But we're not talking about US citizens on US soil are we? That's an extremely important distinction. We have no mandate to police the globe. I'm not an isolationist and I'm all for stopping ISIS but I'm not convinced that we've been somehow remiss in our military response.

Most people miss understand Obamas motive when it comes to his middle east mentality
Obama is not stupid or that it doesn't have a clue, neither that he doesn't know what he is doing, for the member that said Obama is a national security risk, you have more truth on that statement than most.
Obama is a Muslim, he has been all his life, he caters to certain groups in the middle east due to his family links.
He will never risk to have his true nature expose even when a lot of people have exposed his links for years, he will be a sitting duck president and he will keep a neutral stance.
Yes he is a national security risk to America, because his loyalties are not and never has been with the US and the American people first.
