    Clinton joins Obama in a delayed outrage at the Islamic Jihaddis they’ve timidly overlooked and dismissed in the past. Funny how they’d rather characterize this murderous terrorism as genoside, rather than mentioning it as a religious-based terrorist movement . . . as if calling them Islamic terrorists might offend their finer sensibilities, along with those of our home-grown Presbyterian terrorists WHO VOTE!

    They had to wait until they were sure they wouldn’t offend the anti-Christian secularist who hate all majority groups in the U.S.

    You both miss the point. By declaring it genocide, the US now is charged with a duty to deal with refugees and military action to end it. Something our isolationism minded conservatives have been reluctant to consider. A declaration of genocide is more than an apt description, it is considered a call to action in the developed world.

    Besides technically I-S (operating in Syria and Iraq) are not terrorists, they are warlords. I-S segregates itself from the civilian population, has a “uniform” of sorts and fights with conventional arms. Like the difference between al Queda and the Taliban. Captured I-S members are considered war criminals.
