    Obama: U.S. will be relentless with Islamic State after Beheading.....

    President Barack Obama on Wednesday vowed that the United States will not be swayed from airstrikes against Islamic State after the group beheaded an American journalist, an act he said is proof that the militants stand for no religion. "The United States of America will continue to do what we must do to protect our people. We will be vigilant and we will be relentless. When people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what's necessary to see that justice is done," he said.

    He said militants have rampaged across cities and villages, abducted women and children and subjected them to torture and rape and killed Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, by the thousands."No just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day," he said. "Their ideology is bankrupt. They may claim, out of expediency, that they are at war with the United States or the West, but the fact is, they terrorize their neighbors and offer them nothing but an endless slavery to their empty vision and the collapse of any definition of civilized behavior," Obama said.....snip~

    Rumor has it that the Admin's main focus will be utilizing the FBI to find these guys. Not the best approach IMHO. FBI is good when they have a controlled environment. That region is anything but controlled. This is best suited for military/intelligence.

    Heya Fishstyx. Well he did say Justice.....and sending the FBI didn't do so well in Libya. So lets hope he isn't thinking about any Judicial Process.

    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Heya Jango. Well he does have to take a harder stance now.....especially after the Pope and Rome said ISIS needs to be stopped. How would he look if he didn't?

    Heya Beaudreaux Agreed there.....Air Power will just push them around and now we have to be concerned due to the ManPads and Anti Air they have amassed.

    At least Assad has been bombing Their HQ and their Operations inside Syria for the last 3 days.

    Would be par for the course. Sadly, think he views this as a criminal act and not actually what it is.

    Boots on the ground. Face to face - rifle to rifle - hand to hand. That's what it takes... short of a nuke, that is.

    Obama has already ruled out the only option that will work. Although he lied, because USAF Combat Controllers are already on the ground calling in the air strikes and lighting up the targets - as are a large number of other SOF personnel. (other secret squirrels)
