You assume that there will always be rational thought behind the actions of ISIS. They may attack out of no other reason than terror and hate. Based on what occurred after 9/11, I do not believe Osama foresaw the USA's military actions in Afghanistan or Iraq but performed the attacks based on sheer hatred for the United States and the Western system. It is very difficult fighting an enemy that glorifies death and does not embrace life, the price for victory over such an enemy maybe too high for us to imagine. The last time we faced an enemy so willing to die in such a manner we had to drop nukes on them, twice before they got the idea of surrender.

The intelligent thing to do would be to stay away from trying to solve their problems with a different culture, do not fund their country with any thing from us, when we do nothing they will do something to change it. ________________________________________________________________________ Sadly that was not so in Afghanistan, they were going to be a base for terrorism since the Taliban were in control. Sticking your head in the sand and "hoping" something will change before more tragedy occurs is not a course of action. I agree that trying to change a tribal culture with some kind of democratic system was a dream, therefore the logical course of action would seem to be to install another type of system that can govern after we wipe out our enemies there.
I learned from the Clinton impeachment process that this is not a judicial process but a political one. It is a fools errands to pursue impeachment despite the evidence presented by the judge. I agree the POTUS has not faithfully executed his oath to the Constitution however the appetite for impeaching a president is simply not there, if Clinton could not be removed from office when he was caught "dead to rights" perjuring himself then the bar for removal has been set at an extremely high level.

LEGAL does not make something MORAL. Remember something called SLAVERY was once legal?
Squatters are squatters, it was not the Palestinian's place to begin with, no matter how long it has been. There was no country of Palestine.
And what truth is that?
2 Corinthians 4:4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
Oh, you mean like in Germany, Japan and South Korea?
Even if true, what's your point? The Bible is quite clear about not only homosexual behavior but other sin as well.
Oh, I think we would get along just fine lois. We are able to adapt.
Gee Flattus, you started out that way, just like everyone else, how clear is that?
