A U.S. airstrike near Baghdad on Monday marked a new phase in the fight against ISIS.
Last week, U.S. President Barack Obama said new airstrikes would aim to help Iraqi forces on the offensive against the Islamist militants.
Obama also said airstrikes would include ISIS targets in Syria.
And last week he asked Congress for authorization to train and equip moderate Syrian rebels.
On “New Day” Tuesday, Senator Joe Manchin, (D) West Virginia, commended President Obama for having a plan, but he disagreed with arming Syrian rebels and said he's willing to shut down the government over it.
“I do not believe any way, shape or form that we should be over there trying to pick sides of who we're going to arm, who we're going to train," Manchin said.
The senator added that he would vote no "to arm, to train, to spend $500 million in Syria and on Syrian rebels who I don't know who they are, what they're going to do, and if they're ever going to be loyal to America."
On “New Day” Tuesday, Steve Almond, a contributing writer to “The New York Times Magazine” and The Boston Globe, said the move shows the NFL has “a cash register where normal human beings have a conscience, so they’re going to do whatever they need to do to keep the product going.”
The author of "Against Football – One Fan's Reluctant Manifesto," said that if fans are outraged, the onus is on them to “stop watching the game, stop paying their salaries.”
CNN commentator and legal analyst Mel Robbins said Rice deserves another chance, but the NFL should stick to its six-game suspension rule because it hits the players where it hurts.
“Clearly, these guys do not respect women. They don’t respect kids," she said.
"But they do respect being pulled off the field.”
Do you think corporal punishment is acceptable?
After a grand jury indicted NFL player Adrian Peterson on a felony charge of child abuse, his lawyer spoke out saying that Peterson used "a switch to spank his son" in doling out discipline much like "he experienced as a child growing up in East Texas."
Basketball player Charles Barkley has defended this same cultural argument, saying "I'm from the south. Whipping, we do that all the time. Every black parent in the south is going to be in jail under those circumstances."
But CNN commentator Mel Robbins said spanking is part of 'lazy and dangerous parenting.'
