    Fine. Then they can pay the ransom.
    I hate to sound cold, but....maybe they should've insisted their daughter not go over there in the first place because **** like this has happened in the past.

    These sick freaks don't care if all you're doing is handing out meals and blankets. If they think they can get money off of threatening your life, they'll take ya. Some people are just too damn stupid to realize that wearing a "Red Cross" or "Press" badge DOES NOT protect you anymore. Not with these psychopaths!

Hatred by people that have been wronged by a very heavy handed invader can be very powerful and motivational.


    I think there is way more to it than that.....which the US not being there. Doesn't mean any of that violence and or sectarian divide would all go away. Then there is the issue with Israel and Other Allies. It would be even more violent. Also Russia has been there for the last 20 years too.

You have been killing those responsible for 13 years with the result that terrorists thought by your president to be just some joyful Arabs happy that he bombed their cities for them assassinated the only Ambassador to be killed in the line of duty in 30 years and got away with it.

    You spent what, seven years in Iraq killing terrorists and terrorist sympathizers and now have to back. 13 years with the full resources of NATO for the most of it and Afghanistan is still a training ground for terrorists.

    The US dribbling in Kyev caused a regime change, and a war in eastern Europe, the first nation grab since Hitler invaded Poland, a civilian airliner shot down and your president walks away like nothing happened?

    Obama promised revenge for this beheading, and now has a hostage crisis. Obviously ISIS is terrified.

    So, please, exactly what it is ISIS is supposed to fear here?
    I did not say that they would fear anything - they are religious extremists. I'm not referring to how much they should or should not fear. I am referring to how America would react, and how the religious extremists have no clue about how we would react...just as I'm fairly sure that OBL had no idea of the lengths we would go to, to get him.

    Let's take it a step further, shall we? How about, "This is why it's absolutely ****ing retarded to invade a country on fabricated reasons,"? Yeah, much better. The Bush Administration were warned that their actions would cause more hate in the Middle East. And this is ever before it came out that Americans were torturing people. What a big cesspool of mess.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Muslims are not evil. And yes, there was already hatred, but now, there's just a lot more.

    Because it was the actions of that administration that has caused a lot of the problems we see today. They were warned but didn't listen. So **** yeah, I certainly have the right to point the finger.

    And, hypothetically, say about 20 Americans succeeded in hijacking a plane (or two) and flying them into a couple of those incredible buildings in Dubai. Does that make the United States of American open for justified invasion? Of course not, so your point is ridiculous.

    So how did Bush cause the French to file Resolutions in the UN for Enforceable Action in Syria again.....then lessening Sanctions on Iran. Then file resolutions with over 6 different African Nations. Including Libya wherein they tricked BO and his team into jumping to take out Gadhafi for them and the Sauds?

    Where did you say Bush comes in with telling the French what to do?
