If the butchering barbarians of ISIS would come to this author's front door, maybe then he would realize how dangerous a terrorist army and possible terrorist state in Iraq is to the world.

Credence is right on.

Tim, There is no poverty (L.B. Johnson took care of it already! Yeah, right). Now there is no middle class because the current regime has forced each family thereof to support a second family of sluggards.
