    We would lose our minds if Cuba came over to steal back Elián González inside our borders. Crossing the borders of another country with your military without its permission is the definition of invasion.

    At least, as far as we know, no one was sodimized with a knife during this mission. We should put in a FIA request just to make sure.

    That's a good point. But aren't we invaded every day, sanctioned by profiting foreign Govs?
    Not to spin too far off course, but we seem to be more capable of protecting other nations than we are our own.

    "She" being the prime focus for you, eh?

    By your view here we could say, "a soldier volunteers to join the forces and so when he's stupid enough to get caught while on a mission we shouldnt' lift a finger to help and rescue him - he shouldn't have volunteered if he didn't want to risk being MIA"

    LOL - oh please

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Nope. I would have been just as against the SEALs, Rangers, Delta, etc... being sent in to get the guys out of Iran as I am about this mission. The focus here is CIVILIANS first and that they CHOSE to be there secondly.

    Nope. There is a duty to try and rescue military personnel. There is no duty for the military to rescue stupid civilians. The exception being the US Coast Guard.

    On the other hand, I am TOTALLY against using US Military personnel to go rescuing American (and especially foreign) civilians who are too stupid to stay out of harms way. Somalia is NOT a tourist destination or a safe place for Westerners to work. I would have to bet the US State Department probably suggests AGAINST US citizens traveling there for any reason. This woman chose to ignore that basic common sense. They should have let her rot.
    Ah yes, compassionate conservatism rears its head. I'm sure you would have felt exactly the same way had it been your daughter. The woman was an aid worker. J
