Get rid of ISIS, and then leave.
CommunistDog says2015-05-19T10:01:28.5136927-05:00
@Tajshar2k It's not that easy.
fonzi22201 says2015-05-19T10:01:48.8654419-05:00
So you are for the fight on terror
fonzi22201 says2015-05-19T10:02:44.0022560-05:00
If we keep fighting and using airstrikes it is that easy
tajshar2k says2015-05-19T10:03:33.2889201-05:00
@communistDog So, you're saying we do nothing then? If ISIS grows too powerful, its going to become a bigger problem.

I am slightly yes/no. While I am afraid of terrorists ever invading America like 9/11, the people fighting for us should not die because of our irrational thinking or poorly made decisions. If weapons like drones or things that could replace the presence of soldiers were implicated, I would be fine with the war on terror.
tajshar2k says2015-05-19T10:05:37.3228774-05:00
Well yeah, thats what we are doing with ISIS. We haven't landed troops.
CommunistDog says2015-05-19T10:07:38.1784015-05:00
Yes, they have. There are spies and reporters.

@tajshar is right i did a debate on that to just go to http://www.debate.org/debates/Should-the-United-States-Continue-Targeted-Airstrikes-Outside-of-U.S.-Combat-Zones/1/
tajshar2k says2015-05-19T10:09:13.1654502-05:00
Spies and reporters, are not the same as troops...
tajshar2k says2015-05-19T10:35:28.1424001-05:00
Lets see, the war on terror didn't start until WE GOT HIT BY A TERRORIST ATTACK. Now our current purpose for the war on terror to limit possible threats power and ability to commit future terrorist attacks. Such actions include attacking a country that at first JUSTIFIED the 9/11 attack, ignore the UN completely, had no respect for surrounding countries, and had created WMDs in the past. There was no proof Saddam had WMDS after the Gulf War. That was completely a lie made by the Bush Administration to invade Iraq.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-19T10:56:22.5429656-05:00
@tajshar2k Try looking at what UNSCOM found. Iraq still had WMDs after the gulf war, but they did lose a large number of facilities in the gulf war. When UNSCOM went in to get rid of them, Iraq claimed they destroyed the rest, but the UNSCOM could not find evidence that they were destroyed. But regardless, Iraq kept the ability to make WMDs if needed.
PetersSmith says2015-05-19T13:30:52.8269503-05:00
We need to turn our attention on the real enemy: Canada.
tajshar2k says2015-05-19T14:03:50.9676773-05:00
Ya, I'm sure they will seige us riding moose, and armed with hockey sticks.
Lemmingburgh says2015-05-19T14:07:59.4648560-05:00
Absolutely, man! We have to be hella careful with them Canadians.
CommunistDog says2015-05-19T15:46:10.9158597-05:00
Ikr?! Canadian bacon?! That's not real! It's a conspiracy!
