U.S. General Open to Ground Forces in Fight Against ISIS in Iraq
WASHINGTON — President Obama’s top military adviser said Tuesday that he would recommend deploying United States forces in ground operations against Islamic extremists in Iraq if airstrikes proved insufficient, opening the door to a riskier, more expansive American combat role than the president has publicly outlined.
Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that while he was confident that an American-led coalition would defeat the Islamic State, he would not foreclose the possibility of asking Mr. Obama to send American troops to fight the militants on the ground — something Mr. Obama has ruled out.
“My view at this point is that this coalition is the appropriate way forward. I believe that will prove true,” General Dempsey said. “But if it fails to be true, and if there are threats to the United States, then I, of course, would go back to the president and make a recommendation that may include the use of U.S. military ground forces.”
General Dempsey acknowledged that this would run counter to the president’s policy, but he said, “He has told me as well to come back to him on a case-by-case basis.”
That put Secretary of State John Kerry, who was in the Middle East lining up coalition partners for the campaign, in an awkward position. He had said that Americans should not think of it as a war or slip into “war fever.” Then he was forced to backtrack.
“These terms mean things to the military, and have implications for resource commitments,” said Peter D. Feaver, a former national security aide to George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. “If you’re using the term war, that implies a level of presidential commitment. The acid question is whether it is higher than Obama’s own commitment.”
This is officially the most irrelevant and idiotic post on the entire yahoo message board system.
Because not only are you in a position to issue "official" edicts, but you have read *all posts* on the entire yahoo message board system.
Denier here. The hoax of global warming is meant to redistribute assets from the United States to third world countries. The United Nations resents our 18,000 golf courses, 1,000 ski lodges, 9.2 million golf carts, 6 million jet skis, 5 million snowmobiles, 80 million snow blowers, 200 million chain saws, 70 million fire pits,13 million Americans flying to Europe yearly, all inclusive vacations/cruises in third world countries. Also hated by UN is Disneyworld (dis), vacations to Hawaii and our so very blessed lifestyle.
This is officially the most irrelevant and idiotic post on the entire yahoo message board system. I hope your Greenpiece Rainblow Warrior vessel hits an iceberg [because ocean temps are too cold], you fall off portside and get eaten by a pack of bruised baby seals. You stink worse than my nethers.
Nope. MO used to own Miller. I worked for Miller for 25 years. MO unloaded Miller just as I retired in 2002. Working for Miller in the 70s 80s and 90's was a great way to accumulate wealth because we got MO stock every year, until Reagan cut that off. Still could buy as much as we wanted.
In 2014, Miller is now Coors and Altria is losing smokers to death and old age. Most people under 50 don't smoke. MO is on a downward spin

The globe just experienced its hottest recorded August, according to new data released by NASA on Monday.
While last month is ranked the No. 1 August by temperature, the difference among the top five is fewer than .03 degrees Celsius, NASA said....
Silly right wing empty headed Climate Change deniers are laughable fools..............hahahahahahahahahaha
EVERY GOPedophile Senator voted against the Equal pay bill for women. Sane women far outnumber the older insane women that are sycophants to their "biblical" male superiors.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Each and EVERY budget submitted by Paul Ryan called for Medicare to become a voucher program, AND the elimination of Social Security. No parroting. It was just the lunacy of Any Rand philosophy that was elected to congress by the lunatics in WisKochsin.

"The notion that the GOP would want to slash and kill both programs demonstrates that old people really do not know that the GOP is very bad for them, and the rest of America"
Now there's some MSNBC psychobabble parroting! LOL
Where is there any legislation by the GOP to kill Medicare and Social Security ... ya robotic parrot?
lol ... There isn't any, ya dummy. There's only the lame-stream media and it's con job on the gullible mental midgets that make up the liberal party. They already know and you certainly prove ... liberal loons will buy any and all psychobabble they produce.
Obviously, liberalism has progressed ... to a mental disorder.
"We paid for Medicare,"
Thank you so much for being willing to redistribute to me. I love free stuff and I adore Obamacare almost as much as I do someone like you.
I'm still waiting on you to say if you wanna hook up with me. Please don't keep me in this suspense, my feeling grow ever stronger for you every time you post your stimulating words. I realy think I just might have a crush on you.
We paid for Medicare, and Social Security. The notion that the GOP would want to slash and kill both programs demonstrates that old people really do not know that the GOP is very bad for them, and the rest of America.

The War on Poverty Has Been a Colossal Flop
Today, the U.S. Census Bureau will release its annual report on poverty. This report is noteworthy because this year marks the 50th anniversary of President Lyndon Johnson’s launch of the War on Poverty. Liberals claim that the War on Poverty has failed because we didn’t spend enough money. Their answer is just to spend more. But the facts show otherwise.
Full Report: The War on Poverty After 50 Years
Since its beginning, U.S. taxpayers have spent $22 trillion on Johnson’s War on Poverty (in constant 2012 dollars). Adjusting for inflation, that’s three times more than was spent on all military wars since the American Revolution.
One third of the U.S. population received aid from at least one welfare program at an average cost of $9,000 per recipient in 2013.
The federal government currently runs more than 80 means-tested welfare programs. These programs provide cash, food, housing and medical care to low-income Americans. Federal and state spending on these programs last year was $943 billion. (These figures do not include Social Security, Medicare, or Unemployment Insurance.)
INFOGRAPHIC: 9 Facts About How the Poor in America Live
Over 100 million people, about one third of the U.S. population, received aid from at least one welfare program at an average cost of $9,000 per recipient in 2013. If converted into cash, current means-tested spending is five times the amount needed to eliminate all poverty in the U.S.
In times of war or threats of war more people Smoke and drink,
Thank you, ISIS!
