Our method of fighting an ideology appears to suck.

How would you recommend defeating ISIS?


If I had the answer to that, I'd be sitting on the throne tossing around commands to my minions.



To fight guerrilla warfare, one must think like a guerrilla.

The entire point is to outwit the enemy. That does not include dropping oneself to the lowest common denominator alongside the swines your fighting in order to beat them.

So again I say:
We are not at war with an entire country, therefore the standard rules of engagement must be applied.


Cheers


You dont need to be a guerilla fighter to know how to stop guerilla fighting. ISIS fight by guerilla tactics, but they are mainly paid mercenairies. Stop all the sources that pay their bills and armes them. ANd you are left With nothing but x-guerilla fighters.

Nope. I was trusting that you would have stayed with the topic and not BS talking points. Not too much to ask for, right?

ETA: And THIS is the point in case it was forgotten.

Well France should be a good example of not to. Since their last attack 11 months ago. France stationed 10 000 soldiers around France, a additional 1000 armed police in Paris alone. That didnt prevent anything from happening on the 13th.

The White House is playing nice. They are trying to limit casualties. They are being sensitive to the needs of the poor drivers.

They (the White House) has no interest in actually defeating ISIS.

No it seams like the US and the UK have been protecting them for a year now (not kidding). Until Russia showed up and made a mess of the American dream.

STILL has nothing to do with your point. Do I have to point it out a 3rd time?

THAT I agree with. But not just the WH. I'd go with the MIC, who owns the WH.

Dragging us back to the OP.

This is a rule of engagement and we should be thankful that this type of thing happens. It is likely the drivers of these tankers were civilians, possibly forced to work.


Probably forced to work..... great argument.

Are you telling me that the US would not have bombed People who aid terrorists in any way? Is that the New doctrin the US fight against terror now? That was not the case before.

Never has been the case. US bombs hospital in Afghanistan full of wounded combatants and medical personnel, bombs it repeatedly, then turns around and drops leaflets in Syria to ISIS "truck drivers".

Aww, we're so nice…

He who has the higher intelligence will win the war.

Sinking to the lowest common denominator on par with the enemy indicates a lack of strategic intelligence.

Doesn't anybody read 'The Art of War' anymore ?!

Geez...

Who's the enemy of Assad (Syria)?

Well I guess this isn't as bad as Bush giving Saddam and his sons (and the rest of the world on live television) 48 hours notice before we attacked them... remember that one?

What makes you think we've actually been fighting them all this time ?

Things that make you go "hmmm" indeed.

We have fought them enough to provide sound bites on the nightly news.

We have yet to fight in order to defeat them.

Your taxes pay for drones that bombarde weddings and funeral processions...

You're already responsible and doing zero to stop that funding.



Stop paying taxes and go to prison if you're as brave as you're making out.

Come on it's only prison, it's not like they'll set fire to the cage your in, is it?


Im not American


Forgive me, my intention was to say that generally to make a point, not to target you individually.

I know this isn't directed at me but can I ask, does killing more people because they are Arab work?


Dunno. Are those Arabs, ISIS?

They want to kill us. We can just stop killing them, but would that stop them from continuing to kill us? We could surrender. Give up. Convert.

Maybe that would stop them from killing us.

What is your suggestion to have them stop killing us?


Who has ISIS killed that affects your life?


Fellow innocent human beings.

You call that fighting.

I call that a dog and pony show to make us plebeians feel all warm and fuzzy inside giving the illusion that our overlords are actually doing something useful with themselves.

I watched a video of the strikes on these trucks.
I expected to see a moving convoy of oil trucks struck by aircraft. The trucks were all parked side by side, maybe 20 or so in each line. Why would so many trucks be parked in such a fashion?

I smell something stinky here.
Here is a link that has the video: onenewspage


Perfectly normal way to park truck if you ask me. Plenty of room to pull in and out without having to reverse.
