Should people not demand an end to ISIS? Explain it to me like I'm 5 because I'm not sure why it's not ok for people to stand up for their countrymen. They hate us and want to kill us. The people should stand together in a time of crisis even if the things they say sound entirely idiotic. It's just their way of saying "I'm hurt". None of those morons you knew went off and killed Taliiiiban, but they did bond about it as apart of the healing process of the red neck. Accept who they are.
Are you so really scared of terrorists that you'll dismantle the structures that made America what it was? If you are the terrorists win. Because that is, specifically, his goal, his only goal: to frighten you into surrendering the rule of law. That's why they call him a terrorist. He uses terrifying threats to induce you to degrade your own society. It's based on the same glitch in psychology that allows people to believe they can win the lottery. Statistically, nobody ever wins the lottery.Statistically, terrorist attacks almost never happen

Oh the choices.....where does one begin.
Russia assists Assad with direct military intervention and suddenly a series of terrorist attacks take place by "Syrian IsIS recruits".
Because you know, having to fight one major world power is so 1980, best get as many nations against you as once. That way, when they go to bomb you all they nations will accidently crash into each other like a Buggs Bunny cartoon.
Or they're just really really dumb. Wanna go with the latter? Ok, ISIS are dumb, so dumb they can pull off a multi prong terror attack in a 1st world country with young Syrian Refugee terrorists that must have taken months if not years of planning with an end goal of what? See how many foreign fighter jets they can get into Syria at one time?

The people i spoke with demand an end of the War on Terror instead.
Which would be same after all, on the long run.

The warlords of the middle east have been fighting since the beginning of recorded time. My solution is, we pull every western troop from the ME, give Israel what support it needs. At that point no western lives are lost.
