    ISIS may be a big enough threat to where boots on the ground are required. Don’t want them there, but do understand we may have to. This beast ISIS needs to be killed not contained, but killed. If we put boots on the ground lets not have another Tora Bora – have them surrounded and trapped, set up for the kill then pull out the troops to invade some other country. Have them surrounded, kill them.

    Any American, Briton or other foreign national fighting with/for ISIS or any other terrorists organization has given up their citizenship and has submitted to the ideals and philosophy of the organization and accepted the belief in and loyalty to terrorists. Therefor, they are valid targets.

    Russia and NATO will never fight over Ukraine, the risk of nukes is to great. But Ukraine has asked for NATO basing and I think NATO should agree. After all the former WARSAW Pact countries are inviting NATO in. NATO has kept the promise to not expand and base along the Russian border, except for the three Baltic States. But with Putin’s recent behavior, give him something to think about and the one thing he does not want, NATO on his door step from the Baltic to the Black Sea.

    If Russia is such a good partner to have why are all the nations, that were once part of the WARSAW Pact, so afraid of partnering with Russia in the Eurasian Custom Union?
