    I dont blame him for all the worlds ills. Just the things he has been responsible for. And I have both given him credit where due and refused to criticize on things like the Bergdahl/terrorist swap. Your problem is you simply by gawd will not hold him accountable for ANYTHING. You even offer this ridiculous pretense that he DIDNT support the terrorists in the Arab Spring uprisings...that he DIDNT support the fundamentalist extremist groups that ousted Mubarak and Qaddafi and that he didnt support them in Syria. Every place he as dabbled his wick he has ****ed it up. He tried to claim Iraq was a great success and that look at meeeeeee...I ended the war in Iraq. Only to find that Iraq is a ****storm, that he GROSSLY underestimated ISIS and Al Qaida, and all of a sudden...whoa whoa whoa...I didnt pull out our troops...that was Bush. I didnt make any mistakes there...that was all Bush.

    You made your ridiculous comment about going to war with mejico. You cant see how completely ****ing embarrassing it is that he has such a pathetic relationship with world leaders that that couldnt be accomplished with a phone call and a few post cards from DC?

    Dood is a joke. He is an embarrassment. I'll bet that when you arent rushing to kneejerk defend him, you feel the exact same way about him.

    Trying to pick a fight with the most powerful countries in the world by killing your bargaining chips isn't the smartest move in the world.

    Humans are more barbaric and cruel than any other animal. Once you realize that we are the most violent, cruel and barbaric species on the planet it only makes sense to use humans as the measuring stick of evil. The only difference between ISIS and us is that we have evolved past the point they are still stuck at.

    For the first part, that's interesting and I didn't think of that. We are going to need some allies that we probably under normal circumstances would shun, but we will need them.

    <sigh> What a crazy world we live in.

    Both Foley & Sotloff had deep ties to New Hampshire. Foley was from here and his parents live here. Sotloff attended Kimball Union Academy which is a prep school here. This is all consuming on our news.
    I feel for the families of the remaining hostages and of course the hostages themselvesthat remain. I don't think these nutjobs would ever consider not killing.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but it invokes anger in me. And anger is a deadlier emotion then fear.

    So he should be left to rot in a Mexican prison?

    Great show of compassion.

    It seems to reflect Obama's attitude toward the military. A phone call would fix it.

    There are more beheadings to come, but as I said earlier in the thread, this may well backfire.

    Besides, after they behead a woman and then a baby or two, what's left to shock the world?

    Much like foreigners who violate American law are left to 'rot' in U.S. prisons. I don't see a lot of threads about them.
