    They didn't always have hostages, but it was the only decision to make anyway. What would you have done??

    It seems that government involvement in the citizen's ability to fend for themselves has now reached critical proportions. Instead of taking the trouble, five minutes or so, to simply read the previous posts, this 'independent' needs someone to explain it to him, to 'bring him up to speed'.

    See what socialism does to human beings?

    It wasn't the only decision to make, and what I would have done is not related to the conversation and has no bearing on the argument. Also, saying that it was the only decision or an easy decision, when you have no idea what information was in front of him at the time, is at best extremely presumptive on your part. You're uneducated guess is that you would have done the same thing. That's about the best you can say.

    It's an excuse to bash Obama, does anything else really need to be said?

    Actually a lot of this is an excuse to bash Margaret Thatcher, but the topic is " Obama sends former officials to Thatcher funeral".

    You don't like it when poor Barrack is criticized, huh?

    The guy is traveling all over the world, his family is hitting all the international hot spots, he's playing golf with Tiger Woods, is elbowing with celebrities, pays 18% on his hundreds of thousands of income, and you're concerned he is being "bashed"? We should have it so good.

    Bring what up? I only brought up that they had hostages, not what I would have done, which is the question you asked that doesn't matter as far as the story goes.

    They should have sent somebody actually in the administration to represent the United States. This was not a good idea and reflects poorly on the Obama Administration, regardless of how he or anybody else feels about Thatcher. She was an incredibly important political figure at the end of the 20th century and there should be some person of note in the official U.S. delegation.

    And I am not a Thatcher admirer.
