I wish the press would stop calling them “IS” or “Islamic State.”

That implies legitimacy.

“The group has carried out beheadings, levied a tax on non-Muslims, and settled foreign fighters in confiscated homes, said the resident, who asked for anonymity due to security concerns.”

Reading the comment from above…ISIS is merely another term for a totalitarian terrorist group. And to think, the U.S. considered supporting the rebels in Syria and the POTUS’ foreign policy was/is to engage Islam as an equal. This is what they POTUS promoted, this is what the world received. The POTUS and his SOS demanded Assad step down, along with the Putin “reset”, and support for the overthrow of Gaddafi.

Just shows you have the POTUS and his team of advisors view the world through rose-colored glasses. I guess this POTUS was too focused on his Alinskyite agenda to appreciate the term “better the devil you know versus the one you do not”.

Without “dealing with Apostates” oil revenue and trade of any kind will be impossible for these Sunni tribes – ISIS imposes 800 BC values with modern weapins – but those values will decimate all under their rule – literally decimate them. The executions and enslavement of women and minorities is only the beginning.

BTW – electricity, gas, and water require educated engineers to run. ISIS is as anti-education as the Taliban.

ISIL is a group of barbarian sunni terrorists. They need to be dealt with now.

But I hate to say this, the US created this evil with the wars of Afganistan, Iraq, and Libya, our support for terrorists fighting in Syria, and our governments unequivacol support for the apartheid state of Isreal. And lets not forget that it is our supposed allies (Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain) that have been funding and arming all of these terrorists.

I think its about time that we as Americans think about what our government is doing throughout the world and have some real CHANGE.

Do we need to maintain diplomatic relations with the likes of Isreal, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Pakistan……….??????

We need to kill ISIS militants when they are in open ground and in aggressive position.Many are from our own countries and we don’t want to see them return. Obama needs to step up to the plate and get back to work. Outrageous that he is more interested in golf. He should be more mission driven and less absorbed in pleasure and leisure.
