Without the massive wealth generated to the Saudis by oil, their oppressive and violent version of Islam could not have been exported across the region and Al Qaeda and ISIS would not have been birthed.

Trump’s rhetoric is the stuff of Nazi nationalism, demonizing all those who follow a specific religion, just substituting Muslims for Jews. In doing this, he is attempting to sew a swastika onto the American flag.

The republicans hurry to war but refuse to care for the veterans their war created. With that in mind, I believe that more veterans than ever are going to vote for a Democrat who is against senseless WAR! Bernie Sanders has been against all our wars since he has been a Rep. or Senator. Nearly all the GOP candidates are in favor of said wars. They even want to start another with Iran.

American Sniper is the first truly great film made about the war in Iraq. It is not a celebration of war; or a call to action against Muslims. It is a sad film about the bravery of warriors in battles whose purpose is lost in the fog of war.

What we know confidently now is that torture did take place under the Bush Administration by the CIA, that it didn’t work or help keep Americans safe, that it permanently undermined our nation’s moral authority in the world and that there is absolutely no regret or apology from those who oversaw and committed it.

Many veterans are injured either physically or emotionally or by some illness brought on by (in my case) Agent Orange. We all carry memories that we wish we never had to.

ISIS is having its way with Iraq and Syria. When they gain control of those countries, will they turn their attention on Turkey, Jordan, or Saudi Arabia? Why would they stop with Syria and Iraq?

    Senators and Representatives want to send our combat troops to Syria, (boots on the ground)? I have a suggestion for them. Every one of them who want American “Boots on the ground” should put their boots on and get their asses over there! I am a combat veteran […]

Terrorist organizations want the U.S. to be so frightened by them that the US elevates them by declaring war on them. Would the US declare war on an entity that wasn’t challenging and threatening to the most powerful military nation in the world?

“These ISIS guys, they won’t be armed, right? I mean, we’re seasoned Ferguson cops, we’re used to dealing harshly with groups of unarmed enemies, we’re great at that.”

How to stop ISIS, a group too hardline even for al-Qaida, in control of $3 Billion, 30,000 men and a lot of captured U.S. arms, with minds and hearts focused on the creation of a Sunni Fundamentalist Caliphate, is emerging as a most important topic among world leaders.
