I think some hostages still would've died (terrorists might still have executed the hostages), but there would have been far fewer losses. I'm trying to be fair to the Algerian Special Forces. They could've handled things better. At the same time, they deserve credit for acting quickly when things spiraled out of control when the facility was set afire.

    OK, that is a fair enough assessment. But, maybe, and this is my opinion, but maybe they don't feel any longer like they have to defer to the US for anything they do in their own country. Another sign of American weakness projected by a feckless President in the WH.

    Says the guy who attacked me for saying that not all muslims are terrorists? You're now saying you're not racist? Make up your mind, homie.

    Well, you haven't yet proven where ray said that either, so your claim is BS.

    Does that law apply to rightists too? I'll happily apply it if it does.

    Oh, so another one that when presented with losing an argument goes straight for the race card....a purely leftist tactic btw. But hey, you're a "Libertarian" right?

    He said it, not me.
    What is the difference between an Islamist and a Muslim?

    Why not just come out and say that the terrorist attacks around the world are committed by Muslims?

    Everyone knows the truth about the "religion of peace" anyway.

    Though again, like Benghazi, they were watching.

    Where's the quote of me attacking you? If you made the banal claim that not all Muslims are terrorists then it deserves ridicule because, of course, not all Muslims are terrorists. That is common knowledge. It's been said for many years now but those of little self awareness still feel the need to repeat the obvious as though they are discovering it for the first time.

    Not yet but when they, or those in the middle, start lying then perhaps the rules may change.

    It's rather lazy of you to call someone a leftist for disagreeing with you. I guess I'm a leftist because I don't think that all muslims are violent.
