This is just the beginning. It will make Iraq look like a sunday school party. Marching on to Iran...This isn't about ISIS, it's a continuation of the Crusades; the Trump Dominionist have been seeking Hoping to bring about Armageddon and the return of Christ. And with Trumps affinity for torture, wtf, he might as well bring back the Inquisition.

Glad I don't have kids!

the recent 50 or 1000 American boots-on-the-ground are there because of Trumps clearance to the presumably loyalist Generals still keeping their Oaths --- that American boots-on-the-ground, of specialized Terminator Specialists, are what is needed,,, And is merely NOT what the Administration or political war-hawks want done

the prior administration conducted many bombing & missile attacks on empty sand dunes, as far as some sources reported

the brass in the military is still heavily leaning to being Obama loyalists, but are being replaced with Trump & America First Military leadership...

the boots-on-the-ground, Special Forces/Delta or other extreme resources are a show of commitment by the Trump MAGA loyalists... getting into the fight along side the fabulous Kurd fighters... I don't see so much the new policies really trying to gain favor with the Iraqi forces, they are being left to do their own blood-&-guts factor, and step-up to their own responsibilities ---of course with aircraft support they cannot provide for themselves

let's watch and learn before we decide-&-judge on the American Forces on the ground... in such small numbers it does not appear to be a massive show-of-force

We've spent what trillions now? since this started in 2003 with the invasion of Iraq. How much of that money could have been spent helping our own citizens?

In the last 15 years I've watched my area turn from an industrialized middle class neighborhood into 1 step above a 3rd world country.

I'm tired of the endless wars. All we do is play whack a mole with ISIS. We stomp them out in one area they'll pop up in another. Unless we lay waste to the entire middle east this will not end.

Let the middle east burn and pull the $#@% out.

Republicans love to squeal over feeding the poorest of our citizens but they don't care about spending trillions on armed conflicts.
