    Putin is watching happily from the sidelines as NATO tears itself apart
    Not to mention that Turkey is a base from which we're fighting ISIS.

    Dogtower says or ask "We'really fighting ISIS?"
    In reality the fight against ISIS is almost over. What will we do then? Russia has a plan . Does NATO?

    Almost over ? Really? In Europe alone there us an ISIS atrack every 84 hours. I'd reconsider just how dead it is.

    And it's open arms for its members to enter this country illegally.
    One step forward two steps back.

    Sure. Obama is rounding up ISIS members in much the same way he was rounding up people infected with Ebola during that crisis and bringing them to the USA.

    Sure. And when they get here, we give them food stamps, an Obamaphone, and an AR 15, anything they want.

    You people are so full of shit I bet you have fleas. Terrorists have been here since the Reagan era, and Bush let even more come in through the Southern border. As to fighting terrorism, we are spending far more fighting ISIS then Bush spent on his phony "war".

    BTW, when do you suppose the Republicans will give him the authority to do so?

    yes we are fighting IS in the Middle East but that fight is nearly over. W will have new enemies there soon. In Europe and the USA we will have more terrorists. After all that is the price Britain, France and the USA pays for interfering in the Middle East.
    I understand he Republican Trump plans to give Crimea to Russia.

    ISIS is now in 17 different countries, and still expanding while it loses ground in the ME. They will be a threat for a long, long, time.

    Anyone who argues that Trump's candidacy is at the "heart of .. declining stature" doesn't know a damn thing about NATO.

    At most Trump is just repeating (simplistically) debates that have been going on for over a decade about the role of NATO in the world today.

    I agree - there are attacks happening left, right and center.
    Europe is having a major issue with ISIS in the form of refugees.
    The war on ISIS is far from over.
