What are you gonna do about ISIS/ISIL in Iraq?

Keep using airstrikes and drones whilst training the locals to eventually take care of themselves. I know it would take a while, but I imagine it might be cheaper in the long run.[/quote]

By what authority do you as President commit those acts of war? Only the Congress has the power to declare war.

I don't think airstrikes against ISIS count as acts of war. And I never said declare war. We're stationed over there in the middle of Iraq anyway and we're not attacking the government itself.

Why isn't aggressive military power an act of war? If it looks like a war, sounds like a war and quacks like a war, why isn't it a war?

Let's Say You're The PresidentPosted 6 years Ago

Let"s say you"re the President.

What are you gonna do about ISIS/ISIL in Iraq? What are you gonna do about the Russians and the Ukraine? How about the southern United States border? What would you do about that?

On political forums there"s mostly criticism of the leftist when they"re in office by the right and criticism of the rightist when they"re in office by the left. Criticism is always oh so easy to put out, but actually having a rational [b]"SOLUTION"[/b] for the issues that are being criticized is a whole different animal.

So let"s see how many folks on this forum actually have rational solutions for the most urgent issues.

So now you"re the President, whatchagonnado?
