Mohammed Alaa Ghanem

Few issues require as urgent attention as America's ISIS strategy. America's multi-year strategy against ISIS lies on the cusp of collapse. The Obama Administration needs to understand that its train-and-equip program is simply too piecemeal and too slow. To remain viable, moderate Syrian rebels need weapons now.

Obama is trying to walk a very fine line between doing nothing and all-out war. He will be counting on others to do the ground fighting, which may depend on how much support America gets from regional allies. The end game of this limited warfare is going to be hard to see, however.

We're told that Syria is much different than Iraq. If the word 'wolf' comes to mind, ignore it. These are the same people that wanted to attack Iran less than a year ago because they were eerily close to a nuclear weapon.

Glenn Hurowitz

Obama's political team looks at the Shell Oil decision - and every other major policy choice facing them in the next few months - purely as a risk: risk of giving the Tea Party material to whine about, risk of riling up Koch brothers, risk of giving Mitt Romney an issue.

The LGBT community reflects the diversity of society as a whole: white gays have more wealth and privilege and less history of oppression to overcome than their black counterparts. This has been a sore point for a long time.
