Lipstick Barracuda = Anonymous. If that's your real name I apologize.
I think he has the right approach to 'destroy' ISIS - quit supporting them and supplying them with arms! Going over the with guns blazing hell bent on genocide of that entire culture (which it appears is what some mean by destroy), will only leave a fresh cache of weapons over there for them to pick up next time it's politically expedient for us to leave. After all... we were for ISIS before we were against them.
In the same manner that our government forms committees of government officials to investigate themselves.
Wow! Sounds like McCarthyism 2.0 brewing there Issac. Do you have any better evidence they to support these claims or is this just another flavor of conspiracy theory? Why don't you make a documentary about it and see if you can convince people of your theories? The irony is thick here. Basically your concern is that their conspiracy theory doesn't consider your conspiracy theory...
You miss my point... You certainly have the right to shame and belittle others as your exercise of free speech. But if that is what you are trying to accomplish I would have to say their motives are more noble than yours. That is just petty. And it doesn't answer my question. What is the concern here? What is the harm? You don't like it... fine. But if that is the whole motivation for this article then the shame is on you. Refute their theories on the merits if you will, but just slapping labels on them as a group and saying they need to get a hobby? What is the point? Make you feel better about yourself? Feel superior? I see no other use for this article. All you're doing is giving them publicity.
What is the concern here? This is still America right? If these people and their theories are crazy let them blather on about it. There is no harm in asking people to consider other narratives than the standard media template. If they're ridiculous they will be largely ignored. But as Americans they have every right to voice their opinion no matter how unpopular it is. I find it quite odd that you wave the flag while shaming them for expressing dissenting opinion which is the the very kind of freedom that makes America exceptional. Be grateful they still have the right to do so!
GWB gave us the endless GWOT, medicare expansion and the Patriot Act. He set the stage for everything BHO has run with! Unless people wake up to the fact the Reps and Dems are both responsible for the "out of control government" problem, there is no help for any of us!

I am neither young nor an atheist Brenda. And I am very familiar with propaganda wars. WWII was not a cultural war per se. It was a war against specific tyrants who threatened our country directly. I have no problem with the use of defensive force. You would do well to educate yourself on the difference between isolationism and non-intervention. If you are familiar with history you should know that our founders advised that we avoid entangling alliances, but engage in friendly commerce with other nations. Our government has foolishly attempted to change the cultures in Iraq and Afghanistan. How do you think that is working out? As you said, these cultural conflicts have raged for thousands of years in spite of all manner of force by each side to change the other. So if you wish to support one side in this conflict, I suggest you send them a personal check or go on over there and pick up a gun yourself. You do not have a right to confiscate other people’s money to support your cause. You wish to tax people and give that money to someone else. It is not your money to give! Another history study for you would be to look up Davey Crocket’s speech to congress on that very subject. He understood and espoused the very principles I speak of here. If my debate style were to hurl personal insults and apply labels as you have done, I might ask “Are you nuts?” Exactly how are we supposed to pay for this cause of yours when we as a nation have nothing but mounting debt? And this is largely due to our government’s violation of these principles. They confiscate wealth of productive citizens to give to favored causes of the majority of voters. Whether domestic welfare, domestic cultural wars (social engineering) or endless wars with no defined enemy (GWOT). It is simply unsustainable.

Or since the 40s even I should say... I was thinking of the 67 war.

"Israel must survive if America is to survive." Wow really? How does one arrive at this conclusion? We were here long before the modern Israel existed. In fact if anything one could argue that our country has gone downhill since the 60s. The data doesn't seem to support your claim.
