Did you know we let thousands walk out of Raqqa over a year ago? Can't kill 'em if they surrender. Can't detain them forever after hostilities end.
Did you know Ulysses Grant paroled 30,000 Democrat traitors he captured at Vicksburg? He paroled tens of thousand more Democrat traitors at Appomattox.
Paroles happen. We fought the same Mexican soldiers over and over from Vera Cruz to Mexico City. At the end of WWII we stopped killing Japanese shortly after nuking them a couple times. Disarmed 'em and gave 'em a big loan. Germans too.
Maybe ISIS is worse than Nazis and should just be killed. Then again, you lefties think that half of Americans deserve to be at least punched.
Who knows what the ---- you would do, besides blindly support Obama while ISIS ran rampant.
Of course you've heard Trump may be close to ending the Korean War. You're certainly unhappy about that, too.
Loaded question: Is there anything at all you're happy with?

Here's what we need to do in Syria, and the Middle East as a whole.
The United States should act not tactically and operationally, but strategically and politically, starting now ...
In the 40 years worth of bipartisan military forays (large and small) into the Middle East, what have we got in return for money spent and military lives lost, what has America achieved?
The answer to that -- nothing
Since 1980 tick off each place -- Beirut, Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, and on, and on, and ask yourself what have we got done -- Is the region becoming more stable? Is the region becoming more democratic? Are we enhancing America in the eyes of the Islamic world?
Again, the answers -- no, no, no
So the first step in Syria and the Middle East should be doing things that are counterproductive for America.
Remember, the answer is strategic and political -- so it's good that Trump wants to pull troops out of Syria but politics is still a factor and Trump doing it in a manner that causes more death and mayhem shows his incompetency.
There are plenty of voices that Trump can turn to help guide him thru this complicated process -- but you know, and I know, he won't do that.
Glad I could help you with all this ~
