    Trouble in the 'Caliphate?' Within a week or so, the Caliphate will be no more. The day after the Caliphate was announced to the world, in 2014, I said it would not last long. I was correct.

    ISIL will not go away, they will transform into an international terrorist organization and return to the shadows- as I said when I predicted the Caliphate's demise. That brings up a couple of questions. First, al Qaeda told ISIL that their plans for a Caliphate were not ripe. So will al Qaeda absorb ISIL fighters who may be disappointed at ISIL's failure? Second, will ISIL remain focused mainly on the Middle East, or will it expand its operations to focus elsewhere?

    If you would just refer to the date you finally changed your mind and agreed US overt military involvement would be required to oppose ISIL, it would clear much of the confusion. You'll note when you refer to that date how late to the table it was, how it would now cost more in money and blood to uproot an entrenched enemy.

    You are trolling. My position was and is clear. You just don't accept it because I reject Neocons as evil pieces of trash who should be drawn and quartered.

    As has been established, this date you won't ever give. I asked already knowing it was in November and it was in 2015. It was after the Paris attacks, it was after the British Parliament and French overtly got involved, and it was late to the table costing more money and more lives as a result.

    The date- what I said one day after the announcement of the Caliphate has come to pass. I was spot on.

    I'm not sure where Ransom is coming from on this one. You have been clear and consistent on this for as long as I can remember.

    What is the day in November of 2015 when you agreed overt US military involvement would be necessary?
