'We will pay with our blood,' says Abu Ibrahim, who fled his city of Raqqa ahead of US bombing. 'In big wars, the civilian will pay.'

Jul 12, 2014 ..blog----- Are you that brain dead or just willfully ignorant. Who's killing their own people? Arabs . WHo's killing children all over the world......, A sample of the kind of peaceful people we are dealing with.

King Jan III Sobieski was the great Polish HERO who defeated the Muslim Turks spreading ISLAM in the 1600's. in the battle of Vienna.

A campaign begun in 1976 by Sunni Muslim groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood, against the government. 40,000 people were killed. (Syrian Human Rights Committee)

Apr 26, 2013 ... Since Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad began an open war against protesters and rebels in the Middle Eastern nation ... his decision to invade Iraq and kill hundreds of thousands of its citizens

Whether it's Hamas, Helzbolah, Al quida , ISIS they ALL wear the same clothes, same Islamic religion and they all hate the jews but they may even hate Americans more at this point. They have threatened to attack USA subway systems. Spreading Sharia law is an unattainable goal but they believe Allah will take them into heaven for trying by means of suicide bombers or rockets into Israel or sending airplanes into our World Trade Center.

I agree with Jan B. Some civilians get killed in every war,this evil demented ISIL started this, we sure have to fight back when the homeland is endangered.

Noted. Thanks for posting, Judy. More war always means more innocent women, children and families dying. War destroys.

There are rebels fighting the Daesh terrorists, but it is feared that if to many civilians are killed and the villages and towns are bombed out of existence, they will join the Daesh and fight their common enemy, the US and its allies. Now that has never happened before, that mistake has not been made before, right?

And when will it end? The author of this article OK-So-We-Disperse-ISIS-Then-What? also asks some pertinent questions about that.

Can't miss on this one. I think it is one of those damned if you do and damned if you don't. This Daesh (ISIS) is killing people all over the place, slicing children in half, beheading their parents, shooting people lined up in front of mass graves. No one is spared if they feel you should die for whatever reason.

If the clock could of been turned back, the Kurds should of been allowed their own State out of Iraq and Saddam remained in power. Sure he wasn't a warm and fuzzy leader, but he was far better than what is going on now. It opened up Pandora's box with our getting involved in Iraq.

And still to this day, those most responsible, Bush, Cheney, Wolfowitz and others, can't admit they were wrong, despite the evidence. The so called quick war, that will bring great things to Iraq....never happened. My anger still rises when I see that "Mission Accomplished" banner on that ship.

Because bombing worked so well for us before, we're giving it another go. And if it doesn't work this time, I guess we'll just keep bombing them until we get it right. Never mind that ISIS arose out of our meddling in Iraq and Syria. Hell of a foreign policy you got there, Mr. President, 'hell' being the operative word.

Lona, yes, that author also does ask some very valid questions-and gives the answer as well right there in the last sentence! That IS the plan, as Greenwald worded it: " It seems irrelevant on whom the U.S. wages war; what matters it that it be at war, always and forever."
thanks Judy for this post! (if anyone interested, have a look at mine too -http://www.care2.com/news/member/153110506/3807347)

Noted with thanks Judy, I agree with Dandelions comments!!
There have been so many innocent women and children that have died, and I have many tears for them.
In all wars, innocents are not spared. I cannot even imagine what it would be like living in Syria, Iraq, Israel or Palestine and the Ukraine, and also in Nigeria. How can there possibly be a climate change of any kind with so much being involved in wars. Are at a place in time that we can only Imagine Peace?
