    It will never end.

    Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Tuesday that the U.S. will begin "direct action on the ground" against ISIS forces in Iraq and Syria, aiming to intensify pressure on the militants as progress against them remains elusive.

    "We won't hold back from supporting capable partners in opportunistic attacks against ISIL, or conducting such missions directly whether by strikes from the air or direct action on the ground," Carter said in testimony before the Senate Armed Services committee, using an alternative name for the militant group.

    President Obama ended the wars in Iraq and Afganistan. Don't you read the papers?

    Who will be the first shedder to use the name "Bush" or "Cheney" in this thread?

    You know people can't help themselves.

    Way more US soldiers will die from suicide than the enemy. ISIS isn't shit, the Kurds kick their ass, the Syrian army (when it's not busy fighting US-backed "moderate" terrorists) kick their ass, a few Russian bombers are wreaking havoc on them.

    YOURE the first person to bring them up :jj:

    And why wouldn't you bring those assholes up. They started this mess.
    It'd be like the pitcher in a ball game giving up 20 runs in the first 5 innings and then pulling him.
    Then blaming the relief pitcher for not making all the runs up.
    "But he's not the pitcher NOW!!!!"

    Wait... the US/Mossad created and supported "ISIS", then the Russians called bullshit on the three-year bombing campaign and cleaned up "ISIS" in a couple of weeks... so we're going to go fight... ourselves? Innovative!

    Poverty- mostly the fault of the poor (sadly)

    Iraq/Afghanistan- yeah pretty much Bush's fault

    Income inequality- the fault of all politicians

    This is already happened - we just lost a Delta Force soldier last week - since when does the Delta force get used in anything other than combat.?

    We're in combat in Iraq again - but the administration won't admit it to the public.

    When we start dropping bombs Ash Carter will say they are just pesticides to kill the local insects.
