    I think ISIS should prepare for a strongly-worded letter along with. possibly, a meaningless red line.

    WH’s @PressSec repeats Obama’s commitment that Iraq intervention would include no “combat boots on the ground.”

    How can he focus on Iraqis right now when he's injecting Christians with ebola?

    This is all clearly a distraction from talking about impeachment.

    I just hope we can do this without killing any civilians, or if we do, that an equal or greater number of American civilians are also killed as a result.

    According to the Independent:

    Too bad they don't practice a western-understandable variety of religion (i.e. Quakers, Mormons, whatever.) It would've been bombs away since dawn yesterday.

    The Islamic State is close to wiping out all the Christians of Iraq. But, since the Yazidi live almost exclusively in this region, they are on the verge of total extinction.

    This would be Genocide.

    Bill Clinton counts his lack of action in Rwanda among his greatest regrets.

    We took action in Libya to prevent a slaughter of civilians. I know no one likes to play world cop, but I don't know how we can fail to take action here if we can make a difference.
