U.S. and I.S.I.S.

  • The American Conservative's Patrick J. Buchanan, contra that senile fool McCain, that "nothing that happens in Mesopotamia is going to threaten the existence of the United States" — ISIS Poses No Existential Threat to America.

  • LewRockwell.com's Ron Paul warns us against "two equally stupid choices: either pour in resources to prop up an Iraqi government that is a close ally with Iran, or throw our support in with al-Qaida in Iraq (as we have done in Syria)" — Haven’t We Already Done Enough Damage in Iraq?Instead, he argues that we "follow a third choice: ally with the American people and spend not one more dollar or one more life attempting to re-make the Middle East."

  • CounterPunch's Patrick Cockburn provides excellent investigative reportage on "the most powerful and effective extreme jihadi group in the world" — Who is Behind ISIS?
