Comment: Re:I don't think Obama is really paying attention (Score 1) 517

I wasn't writing in absolutes, I'm aware there are factions opposing them and laud that. I'm also sure that you're not writing in absolutes and are aware of factions that *have* supported ISIS in both governments and clergy. All I'm saying is that these have influenced ISIS, not anything Obama may say or think. He's been openly mocked in the Mid East, so I can't believe they take him all that seriously. Also that, just like here in the US, people there only became active about it when the beast grew large enough to force it. Human nature, here and there.

Ironic, that laughter and bravado coming out from behind that curtain with AC stamped on it. I personally agree with mocking and ridiculing them as you do, but I at least provide them with a moniker with which to start their search.

As for being in fear of his life? Sure should be. Do you keep up with news but just happened to miss that beheading of an infidel by an Islamic nut job recently? Oklahoma, not the Mid East. The woman and her family would most likely disagree that "They have zero power."

Instead they want peace in the middle east, but no economic competitor.

Why then are our best allies some of our toughest economic competitors? It has a whole lot more to do with the Middle East generally taking the attitude that settling business and religious disputes should be done with explosives.

He removes no such thing. He's in no position to confer or remove legitimacy of ISIS in the Muslim world. Not when Islamic leaders and clergy are supporting ISIS and openly mocking him. The only reason those states are beginning to address ISIS is that ISIS is a beast out of control in their back yard.

Since you decided to be a stickler with the definition:

First, bacteria not being the cause of ulcers wasn't indisputable, it *was* disputed, as you pointed out. It's just that the consensus was that bacteria weren't the cause. The consensus changed, not the fact that bacteria caused the ulcers.

By the way, Webster's for indisputable: "impossible to question or doubt : not disputable".
