Wolf Blitzer asked about how would each of the candidates fight this 'war of our time,' against ISIS? Since Ted Cruz spoke of bombing ISIS until the 'sand glowed in the dark,' Blitzer began his quest for who will be the most macho with the human-irritant, Senator Ted Cruz.

Of course, the culpability of the President, and somehow Hillary Clinton is the matter at hand, not the de-Baathification of the Iraqi army back in 2003 and the rise of the death cult. Cruz seems to think that it's all a very keen mind game and our president is just elevating their self-esteem and thus they are succeeding.

But when the time came to answer the question, 'does bombing ISIS mean leveling the ISIS capital city of Raqqa,' Ted Cruz doubled down on his old idea to carpet bomb a large area, brutally murdering innocent civilians.

BLITZER: "Would you carpet bomb Raqqa the ISIS Capital, where there are a lot of civilians?"

CRUZ: "You would carpet bomb where ISIS is, not a city, but the location of the troops, you use air power directed, and you have embedded special forces to direct the air power. But the object isn't to level a city, the object is to kill the ISIS terrorists..."

"ISIS is gaining strength because the perception is that they're winning and President Obama fuels that perception."

Thanks for clearing that up, Ted. You'd bomb innocent civilians, period, city or no city. And you wouldn't care because a lot of them are not even Christians.

Can you help us out?
