    Republican and Democrat presidents have both squandered US dominance. Anybody who thinks differently doesn't read history.

    1. Clinton was not a Republican and he brought China into the World Trade Organization, in 2000. He promised it would bring democracy to China and create millions of US export jobs. The opposite happened.

    One man is now dictator over more people than any man in history. Millions of US jobs were sent to China for cheap telephones, computers and blue jeans. China is now a global threat to US security.

    This was the single biggest blunder of the post Cold War world.

    The second biggest blunder was Clinton not killing bin Laden when he had the chance.

    US Intelligence knew where bin Laden was located in 1998, Clinton had the opportunity to kill him with cruise missiles. He backed down because of possible civilian casualties.

    The World Trade Center was destroyed instead. Thousands of Americans in and out of uniform died. Trillions were wasted in the Mid-East

    2. Bush Jr. was a Republican. He thought he could bring democracy to the Mid-East and wasted those trillions. The region is more balkanized than ever. How can you democratize people who like to kill one another and will wait until you go home at start again?

    3. Obama was not a Republican. He thought he could negotiate a nuclear deal with the Iranians after the Europeans tried and failed for a dozen years.

    Obama's idea of success was to give them what they wanted in the first place--access to the bomb. He gave them $150 billion in cash to boot. Iran is now the principle backer of chaos in the Mid-East.

    Trump is smarter than these three. He killed off the ISIS Caliphate, has declared mission accomplished and wants to let everyone go back to killing each other.

    He was also smart enough to back energy independence at home.

    No Trump is anything BUT “smarter” and the only reason he is not starting wars is that he is too lazy to deal with the consequences

    Spoken like someone who would rather suck up blind hate than look at facts.

    Already did.

    From your text, you sound like a high school sophomore.

    How old are you, dude?

    Burnt churches even with people inside them. Read about Banastre Tarleton and some of the atrocities he committed upon Americans. The British desecrated houses of worship in Boston and turned them into stables during its occupation.

    Given they have lost all their territory I guess it is not impossible they will just give up. That might depend on how easy they found it to move into one of the other groups but I think most of them have found these guys a bit too violent even for them. Well we shall see.

    Interesting turning churches into stables is bad enough but let see links to the Brits burning people to death in their churches.

    I'll take some offense to Trump's comments. I've loved most of my dogs over the years. I even cried when burying my boxer in 2010. Trump's comments were inconsiderate to dogs. He should have said vermin or cockroach.

    I read the history of Francis Marion the Swamp Fox on Kindle and do not have the book
    https://www.amazon.com/Churches-Carolina-Burned-American-Revolution/dp/1502305275

    Here is another interesting read of deeds done by your "Mother Country".

    That is as stupid a statement as I have read lately. Screwups have happened in Democrat and Republican administrations. You should put down the XBox and crack open a history book

    Was Al-Bagdhadi any different than the crazy homicidal maniac biblical Moses? Why condemn Al-Bagdhadi but praise Moses, who did worse deeds?

    Why pray and worship prophet Muhammad? Was he any different from his faithful follower Baghdadi?

    Well, tell me, Wyrd -- where in ANY of my posts did you ever see me "praise Moses"...? :omg: . But, if you want to pore through human history and find examples of people who committed genocide in the name of their concept of god, it's sure to be an easy (and lengthy process). Be sure to pack a lunch first....

    But, today, in the 21st-century, it is clear that only one (ONE) of the world's major religion supports the practice of murdering what it calls "unbelievers", and that religion is ISLAM!

    This "Bag Daddy" creature was just one among many of his kind. Suffice to say, this "Islamo-Nazi" sewer that's been festering throughout the world, especially since the 1970's is nowhere near being cleaned out yet....

    Are you familiar with the biblical King Saul character? His actions make Al-Bagdhadi look like a nice guy. King Saul was a favorite of the God character until he showed a smidgen of mercy and spared a life or two after being commanded to kill everyone and everything. His tiny act of mercy really ticked God off. Later on, Saul committed suicide by falling on a sword rather than be taken alive by his enemies.

    Middle East Arab and Jewish religious figures are basically homicidal maniacs. None of them are worthy of being worshiped by sane people.

    I'm not that much familiar with that biblic character, but maybe if you say so.
    However an evil doesn't excuse another or make another less worse.
    A serial killer with 3 victims isn't less a horrible killer than a one with 7 victims. I'm not extremly motivated to discuss of the bible, because I'm not christian and I don't think it's really related with the discussion with Al Baghadi.

    Mohammed talking about Christians whom he called "People of the Book".

    It's not Islam but some bad Muslims. Just as we have here in Africa some Christians who are real sweethearts. Don't blame the religion for the acts of a few.

    Christians and Jews alike are "People of the Book" -- but that doesn't stop Islamo-Nazis from torturing and murdering as many of both of them as they can get their hands on, and for plotting endlessly to 'wipe Israel off the face of the map'....

    May I suggest that you look this material over and see how most of us 'infidels' see what Islam is doing in this world TODAY, right now, in the 21st-century: https://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/quran/violence.aspx . And if you're a good Muslim, you obey what you are commanded to believe in the Quran!

    First off, the religionofpeace site is absolute propaganda, never site it if you want any credibility. Since you did, goodbye and I hope you get a life outside of sites of hate like that.

    If you don't like what is actually written in the Quran, then you're either an "infidel" (like me), or a very bad Muslim. The "Verses of Violence" site I referred you to SHOWS WHAT APPEARS IN THE QURAN... it's not 'propaganda'....
    Link: https://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/quran/violence.aspx

    "Violence

    Does the Quran really contain over a hundred verses that sanction violence?

    The Quran contains at least 109 verses that speak of war with nonbelievers, usually on the basis of their status as non-Muslims. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.
    "

    So, then 'goodbye' to you, too. I hope you "get a life" and wake up before somebody comes along and decapitates you or decides that 'god' wants you to be thrown off the top of a building, or burned alive....

    Over statements are not my style either, but it's hardly a reason for him to go. There are plenty of other really good ones in my opinion.
