Some other nation should be putting their boot's on the ground. We can't and should not be the only ones willing.
Why would CK call the coalition ineffective before it's even had a chance to do anything ? Also, more than 100 air strikes were carried out between Aug. and Sept. as reported by U.S. Central Command. Recon flights over Syria were also ordered last month to gather intel. http://cf.datawrapper.de/SiMdL/12/?fs=1 But has anyone like CK reported on them or acknowledged them ? Seems to me these messenger's need to start reporting the news instead of constantly engaging in rhetoric meant to undermine the presidents efforts against ISIS.
So a coalition of nations is only a good thing when the president is a republican and the threat isn't real ? But it's a bad thing when the president is a democrat and the threat IS real ? Maybe it's time Krauthhammer and other's made up their minds. Do you want to kill these terrorists or not ? If the answer is yes. Then maybe you should be showing just a little support for the president instead of always trying to undermine him.
South Dakota doesn't represent global climate. You really need to get out more often.
True, most icebergs are actually land ice broken off from glaciers. Not the same thing as seasonal sea ice that freezes and melts.
Actually GDVader, most of those that I know of that believe there are anthropogenic factors involved in climate change ( as well as natural ones ) would agree with you that melting sea ice has no impact on sea level. But they would also argue that the melting land ice does contribute to sea level rise. And they are correct.....
Actually there has been a 1.5 percent increase in ( seasonal ) sea ice every 10 years since records began in 1979. Scientists believe this is linked to strong westerly winds and the melting of land ice in Antarctica. Now when it comes to the land ice, ( which is not seasonal ) only East Antarctica is seeing a slight increase. While west Antarctica and the peninsula are losing ice. And then there is the rest of the world. Which just saw the hottest August on record. But I'm sure our climate expert Mr. Ransom already knew all of this. Didn't you John....
"Islam is a vibrant faith. Millions of our fellow citizens are Muslim. We respect the faith. We honor its traditions. Our enemy does not. Our enemy doesn't follow the great traditions of Islam. They've hijacked a great religion." George W. Bush "We see in Islam a religion that traces its origins back to God's call on Abraham. We share your belief in God's justice, and your insistence on man's moral responsibility. We thank the many Muslim nations who stand with us against terror. Nations that are often victims of terror, themselves." George W. Bush "Islam is a faith that brings comfort to people. It inspires them to lead lives based on honesty, and justice, and compassion." George W. Bush "All Americans must recognize that the face of terror is not the true faith -- face of Islam. Islam is a faith that brings comfort to a billion people around the world. It's a faith that has made brothers and sisters of every race. It's a faith based upon love, not hate." "Here in the United States our Muslim citizens are making many contributions in business, science and law, medicine and education, and in other fields. Muslim members of our Armed Forces and of my administration are serving their fellow Americans with distinction, upholding our nation's ideals of liberty and justice in a world at peace." George W. Bush
http://www.worldtribune.com/worldtribune/WTARC/2007/ss_egypt_06_27.asp Thursday, June 28, 2007 U.S. approves contacts with Muslim Brotherhood: 'Region is going Islam' WASHINGTON — The Bush administration has been quietly engaging the Muslim Brotherhood movement. Officials said the State Department has approved a policy that would enable U.S. diplomats to meet and coordinate with Brotherhood leaders in Egypt, Iraq, Syria and other Arab states. They said the program would first be restricted to elected officials from the Brotherhood and eventually be extended to their political chiefs. "The region is going Islam," an official said. "We see this in nearly every country in the Middle East. We either understand it and engage with it or find ourselves completely out of the picture." The Brotherhood has been regarded as the inspiration for Muslim movements throughout the Arab world. The organization, founded in Egypt, spread through Saudi financing and has served as the inspiration for Al Qaida. Many Arab countries have banned the Brotherhood. But in Egypt, a party composed of Brotherhood members has won 20 percent of the seats in the National Assembly and plays a major role in domestic policy. In 2007, officials said, the State Department was quietly fostering ties with the Brotherhood. U.S. embassy staffers in Cairo have attended sessions led by parliamentarians from the Brotherhood and invited the Islamists to official receptions.
Wouldn't that be covered by the war on terrorism ? Which both the president and Kerry have acknowledged ? Or maybe we should take the hundreds of air strikes that have already taken place, and the formation of a 40 nation coalition to deal with ISIS as a clue ?
