    No Obama defines chump. He hasn't been lighting them up, and they are there because a weak president is here.

    Sure, but then, ISIS doesnt care about her, or her parents. Thats why they didnt offer the parents a sweatheart deal. This is about shaming a president and ultimately a nation.

    But really...ISIS and other fundamentalists groups have been raping and beheading women and children for decades. Why would one more woman matter to those that have already managed to turn a blind eye?

    I don't mean to be insensitive to this woman's family, BUT, sorry, no deal. I don't care what you travel to these hot places for, you should only go with the knowledge that if you get kidnapped, you're on your own.

    To call out Obama, it hurts him politically here, and much of the world is already unstable.

    Yeah, but then think about how many opportunities to go to war we'd pass up! I don't think the defense contractors would get behind that one Jamesrage. And they've a pretty large lobby.

    Oh don't pretend that seeing Obama shamed would jerk a tear from your eye. Otherwise your question to me makes no sense. I never offered up that IS would give a **** her or her parents. Only that her parents would have a different take on whether any ransom should be paid. But they have been in the past and will be in the future as Pete pointed out. It's just not advertised.

    Heya VM. Well they never got to use Social Media and TV to show their point before.....plus put their intimidation out there. But if they did so.....I think they will stir up more than what they have now.


    They were bragging about how many they were recruiting in for the month. Might just wake up to find all sorts out hunting them down. Anywhere and anytime.

    I think everybody diminishes the amount of hatred that the US has attracted by being in the ME and killing folks there for twenty plus years. IS has plenty of recruiting power based upon that alone. Sooner or latter people from that region are going to seek a level of revenge on Americans that dwarfs 9/11. Hatred by people that have been wronged by a very heavy handed invader can be very powerful and motivational.
