    Coming to a town or city near you. Meanwhile, our political class is apoplectic about a freakin piece of cloth. News flash, flags don't kill people, people kill people.

    The label terrorist in this case is misplaced. This is a war. Although terrorism is the the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims we don't apply it to the actions we make during war so why apply it to now?
    More important, the economics of ObamaCare reward scale over competition. Benefits are standardized and premiums are de facto price-controlled. With margins compressed to commodity levels, buying more consumers via mergers is simpler than appealing to them with better products, to the extent the latter is still legal.

    interesting point and if that's true then ISIS can be attacked where ever they are found, on the Battlefield in Iraq or on the streets here in America.

    Agree. The situation in the middle east is alarming on many fronts with a lot of ins and outs that most people don't care to see, including our president & congress. The factions are numerous, the relationships twisted, and the outcome unknown. I predict a reshaping of several countries within the region and with ISIS gaining allies as they go they'll pull in even more splinter groups to their fold with the real possibility of them bringing a more modern war to many fronts including the UK, France, and the U.S. This is no longer the JV team that obama stated they were but a major international coalition of like minded groups with a common goal. As long as we continue to define their actions as terrorism we will miss, or have already missed, the signs of a major build up in organization, training, and arms. Our own actions or in-actions have thus far only assisted them on their way to being a major player in the political quagmire of the middle east and opened doors to other parts of the world for them. No longer should the definition of war be based on the actions of a country. You have to include groups without a country also.

    I don't agree in the slightest. In a true war, combatants are essentially innocent participants. These terror attacks are performed by criminals who should be treated as such.

    True war ? Your hero oversaw slave labor while advancing the cause of the Nazi's ( oh that's right he was one too ) the same " state " that murdered 6 million Jews. Yes your hero and his pals should have been treated like criminals and been hung.

    Within war & crime there is violence. Within war & crime innocent people will get hurt. Within war & crime terror will be felt. Just because you don't agree with the other side doesn't make them criminals. Just because your definition of war is stuck centuries ago when the commanders met before battles to decide how the battle would be fought doesn't make this less of a war. We made the mistake in Vietnam not defining the opposition as a valid military force and for the most part we got our asses kicked. We can't continue to look at war as actions in which we won vs police states and terrorism in which we've lost or are losing. To do so is a disservice to those prosecuting the war, those that have sacrificed for the war, even those that oppose us in the war. Sure they don't have a recognized state behind them officially, no flag for us to capture, but that means nothing in the definition of war that should be applied and which fits all other previous wars - opposing ideas, most often religious, fighting for their god.

    The difference is in the DELIBERATE violence against innocent people and the DELIBERATE killing of innocent people. That's why these individuals are criminals.

    As I recall, our big mistake was in supporting a government that the people of the country did not support, a government that frequently changed with the wind.

    Your recall doesn't make sense and the logic of deliberate violence vs deliberate killing is less logical.

    We were at war with Nazi Germany yet the Nazis will deliberately killing innocent people which in your argument would make them criminals.

    As I was talking about the prosecution of a war my point on Vietnam stands.

    Ah yes. Seems the term war is selectively defined depending on the liberal agenda then I suppose. War on Drugs, War on Women, War on Poverty... etc.etc.etc. Ft Hood was an act of workplace violence, ISIS is JV, laughable.

    99.99999% of all terrorist attacks is carried out by the radical Islamic towel-head camel-jockey, goat fucking sub-human savages around the world in the name of their god and religion of peace.

    It will not stop until they are all killed, and even then it may still continue.
