Look, the grizzly visuals aside, you are being played. This is not the first American journalist to die covering conflict. In the last year or more two Canadian journalists, one of them working for an American outlet have been murdered. How is this different?
How does this, the beheading of a private citizens rate a war, when the intentional assassination of a sitting Ambassador only warrants a lame and still unfulfilled promise to have the FBI catch those responsible?
That was during an election in which Obama needed for it to appear his foreign policy of appeasing terrorists was working. Now, he is seen as a screw up on the international scene, weak as a church mouse after being forced to back down on his great idea of attacking Syria and being chased out of the Ukraine with his little tail between his legs.
Ambassador Stephens was the first sitting diplomat to die while serving his country since the Reagan era. It was played down and you were lulled into this confusing bull**** about it being a spontaneous demonstration.
Now you are being told that the very fabric of the American way of life is at stake because of the beheading on one American Journalist and you suck up that soup while chanting and marching in step demanding more war.
For a nation that has been trying to jam its way of life down the world's throat for a hundred years, a nation that rates itself superior to the rest of the world's systems, to use that as an excuse for war makes 1939 Poland look legitimate.
Mr. Obama needs a win, an increase in congress next fall. With a completely failed domestic policy and nothing but losses and embarrassments on the world stage, he needs a quick war with lots of claims of victories...and you are the mechanism by which he will get his war.
Cheer on, but when the next generation of terrorists comes along, don't try to come to Canada.
