    maybe the best way to beat ISIS is by using airstrikes and drone strikes.

    The Brit beheaded had nothing at all to do with Western airstrikes.

    Sure it did, look at the OP article:

    Directing his remarks at Britain, the executioner -- who sounds like the man who killed Foley and Sotloff -- says, "Your evil alliance with America, which continues to strike the Muslims of Iraq and most recently bombed the Haditha dam, will only accelerate your destruction and claim the role of the obedient lap dog.

    "Cameron will only drag you and your people into another bloody and unwinnable war."

    I agree and they'll be striking innocent American people just as the DC snipers did and the Muslim (whose name I forget) at Fort Hood. This is the latest murder but the media, and of course the government, is playing it down. Brendan Tevlin's Jihadist Revenge Murder Evidence That 'Domestic Terrorism Is Already Here' - Fox Nation

    It doesn't matter. They are terrorists and will kill those citizens who belong to any country they feel attacked Muslims. Don't look for anything rational here, or the way we would respond to these situations.

    I agree with this. They don't have the ability to retaliate in any significant way, so out of desperation they are hitting us where they feel they can possibly affect us... our 'softness' for the individual. This also tells me that air strikes are actually effective, and that we should keep them up.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    You mean the richest terrorist group in existence can't afford anything more than a knife?

    Where do you get your information?

    They use a type of machete in the videos and some use a gun. Accused killer says Livingston teen's murder was 'vengeance' against U.S. | NJ.com

    Re: ISIS appears to execute British aid worker David Haines

    For anyone actually interested in the life of David Haines and his courage and committment to Humanitarian Issues whilst he was still alive, here's a statement from his brother.


    “My name is Mike Haines, I am brother to David Haines, who was recently murdered in cold blood. “David was like so very many of us, just another bloke. Born in 1970 to parents who loved us both, our childhood was centred around our family. Holidays in caravans and tents, days away as a family which we remember fondly. David and I were brought up to know right from wrong, although we might not with the innocence of youth have always chosen right. David was a good brother, there when I needed him and absent when I didn't. I hope that he felt the same way about me. He was, in the right mood, the life and soul of the party and on other times the most stubborn irritating pain in the ass. He would probably say the same about me.

    “After leaving school he worked with the Royal Mail before joining the RAF as an aircraft engineer. He married his childhood sweetheart Louise and in the due process of time had a wee lass Bethany. He was — and no doubt wherever he is — exceptionally proud of Bethany. “David served with the UN in the Balkans, helping people in real need. There are many accolades from people in that region that David helped. He helped whoever needed help, regardless of race, creed or religion. During this time David began to decide that humanitarian work was the field he wanted to work in. “David left the RAF and was employed by Scotrail. As with every job, David entered into it with enthusiasm. David met and married his second wife Dragana and they have a four year old daughter Athea. “David was most alive and enthusiastic in his humanitarian roles. His joy and anticipation for the work he went to do in Syria is for myself and family the most important element of this whole sad affair.

    “He was and is loved by all his family and will be missed terribly.”
    RIP.

    Thank you, Serenity.
