    So what do you think.....maybe this finally got to him. He pretty much told these terrorists we will do what we have to do. What say ye?
    Evening MMC..

    I think he read a speech prepared by his speech writer, used some tough words but when he said 'we do what's necessary to see that justice is done', yip! We heard that before and are still waiting......

    Then he ran off to play golf, with his bad image which he doesn't care about, you'd think he would at least pretend to get back to work. But naw, save work for another day. Let his staff deal with the problems and he'll come out to make another speech.

    Heya ML. Well truthfully BO peep has never been one for smack talk. He couldn't handle it on the street so I doubt he can handle it anywhere else. Even in Diplomacy.

    BO likes to destroy from within but is weak from the outside when people can see. I'm worried about the other hostages and that BO's actions may cause them harm, would be a disaster. We certainly don't want another beheading of the terrorists showing their power.

    lol.....perhaps ISIS will talk smack and piss him off

    Well.....as a community activist. He wasn't about bringing people together. Just sayin.

    Once he released those 5 Taliban......he increased the risk of all our people and businesses overseas. That includes any hostages that were in Captivity.

    Looking to just use the FBI to track them down.....and get them back home. Seems a Waste to me.

    Justice being done isn't the issue!

    You are right, he has no ability to bring people together, he doesn't like people.

    That would be correct trading those Taliban members was a horrible decision, like finding a needle in a haystack. Not to mention what ICE have done with releasing thousands of illegal criminals, with the sad excuse we don't have money to keep them in jail.

    Dubya created ISIS when he invaded Iraq. When Obama was a senator he said the invasion was wrong. Now that he's president he wants to escalate the conflict. Seems we have learned nothing from past mistakes because we keep making the same ones over and over again. Our government starts its own wars. And its killing Americans for nothing.

Did you know that 55 years ago Eisenhower commissioned his NST to produce a report on why it is that the people of the Middle East hate America so? And did you know that their report fingered US policies in the region, like the CIA sponsored coup that overthrew the elected government of Iran, installing the Shah? If America doesn't stop ****ing with these people, one of these days they will succeed.

    Interestingly enough, it was Eisenhower's doctrine that was a complete disaster. Supporting, or not supporting countries based upon his feeling of whether or not they leaned toward communism rather then on there own merits.
    Yeah, bro, I do know & recognize it, but, this isn't the time to be worrying about past transgressions but keeping all attention on what's directly in-front of us. We can have the one-sided debate after we defeat ISIS & survive their worst. I'll be one of the first ones to grab the bullhorn, man.

    We need to be ready & available in a moment's notice to operate, not do the indecisive game like we did with al Qaeda & OBL pre-9/11.
