The United States military is perhaps active in more nations than at anytime since World War II, engaging Muslim organizations, in probably 20 countries. What are the consequences of this engagement, beyond combat, that is, ideologically, politically, socially and economically, regionally and globally?

Dear Republicans and Marxist socialists, entitlement is anathema to your economy and soul. Ryancare failed to get a vote. I'm concerned if it truly was our best attempt at healthcare costing and insurance reform.

The third or fourth most advanced economy in the world, behind Germany, US, and China, make no mistake, is Japan, and is a very powerful ally, or enemy, for any nation or people.

"Maj. Gen. Joseph Martin, the U.S Army commander who oversees coalition ground forces in Iraq... compared Mosul's size to that of Philadelphia: more than 200,000 dwellings, 1,800 miles of streets and roadways and 1.2 million people spread throughout the city." The Islamic State has had two years to prepare its defenses. He said, "It's a level of complexity that I've never seen before."

More of the 82nd Airborne Division is deploying to Iraq. ISIS remains in a Western portion of Mosul, Iraq, and many other places in Iraq, Syria, and 20 other countries.

Medal of Honor citation: "...while serving as Commander of a Strike Force drawn from Company D, 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), 1st Special Forces, during combat operations against an armed enemy in the vicinity of Chi Lang, Republic of Vietnam on September 17, 1969. On that afternoon, Staff Sergeant Morris’ affiliated companies encountered an extensive enemy mine field and were subsequently engaged by a hostile force. Staff Sergeant Morris learned by radio that a fellow team commander had been killed near an enemy bunker and he immediately reorganized his men into an effective assault posture before advancing forward and splitting off with two men to recover the team commander’s body. Observing the maneuver, the hostile force concentrated its fire on Staff Sergeant Morris’ three-man element and successfully wounded both men accompanying him. After assisting the two wounded men back to his forces’ lines, Staff Sergeant Morris charged forward into withering enemy fire with only his men’s suppressive fire as cover. While enemy machine gun emplacements continuously directed strafing fusillades against him, Staff Sergeant Morris destroyed the positions with hand grenades and continued his assault, ultimately eliminating four bunkers. Upon reaching the bunker nearest the fallen team commander, Staff Sergeant Morris repulsed the enemy, retrieved his comrade and began the arduous trek back to friendly lines. He was wounded three times as he struggled forward, but ultimately succeeded in returning his fallen comrade to a friendly position. Staff Sergeant Morris’ extraordinary heroism and selflessness above and beyond the call of duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army."
