    Very serious, I hope the response to this from the US is a military one. We can't allow this.
    It is serious, but I don't see a need for a "military" response. A security response, absolutely. However, just like the Fort Hood shootings, just like the shootings at the San Diego naval installation, etc., there are deranged and evil people everywhere and not all situations are reflective of a larger problem.

    Responding with overwhelming military force is exactly why Israel has been at peace for decades now.... That is also why the Soviets were so successful in Afghanistan...

    Post of the day so far.

    It's so RIDICULOUSLY obvious...the region is a mess. Let them clean it up.

    It's like a bunch of well dressed scholars going to a crack party and getting all bent out of shape that the people around them are not acting 'proper'...and then these scholars decide to stay and try and 'fix' these crackheads.

    You can't fix crackheads - I know, I was one (or anyone else that is messed up) - you have to let them fix themselves. But you best get out of the way while they do it.


    Some US General is trying to train people in a country filled with people who despise Americans and this guy gets killed.

    Well duh.

    I am sorry he is dead...but one has to be astoundingly naive to be shocked that it happened.

    And unless people want to see more brave Americans dying for NOTHING, I suggest America pulls every single soldier out of that quagmire...as fast as the ships/planes can bring them home.

    Tough decision, you're right we need to do something but is military action the right call, remains to be seen.

    May he rest in peace

    I believe there is a difference.

    A soldier in a war zone, no matter what rank, is a soldier.
