That's a straight call on this one! You signed, sealed and delivered the truth here!

Both sides of the aisle in this country have never figured out the Babylonians! ISIS wins. We lose! I have nothing but the highest respect for our military who tried with all of their hearts in Irag, Afghanistan, Viet Nam. Tehran is equipped for this fight. Maybe it will take their mind off of nukes for awhile. There is nothing we can do here but provide humanitarian aid where we can for those who become refugees. Is there any where to run in the Middle East any more but Israel? It seems prophetic at this point. No Americans need to die for this fight when Iraqi security take off their uniforms and head for the hills.

I was part of the evacuation of Saigon when it fell. It is hard to admit defeat. Sometimes all you can do is grab the children and run. You have no choice. Iraq may fall to ISIS but it will be their responsiblity. Maybe the dam will break after the innocent leave. We can only hope!
