    US hostage Kassig 'killed by IS'

    A video released onto the internet claims to show that Islamic State militants have killed the captured US aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig.
    In the video, a masked militant stands over a severed head said to be that of Mr Kassig. Link.
    Condolences to his family, their pleas seam to have been ignored.

    I'm particularly angry about the deaths of aid workers, people who have gone to help - been captured by the very people they went to help, handed over to jihadists and then beheaded.

    RIP. Life is cheap under ISIS, and Obama has allowed ISIS to flourish. These attacks will continue until our weak President decides to get serious.

    How has our President been weak in terms of handling ISIS, and what does it mean to get serious?

    Fixed it for you.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    It's so incredibly lazy that you just waltz in here to hurl insults at Obama but can't seem to lay out what should be done. I mean is that all you people do around here? Whine about Obama without providing any kind of substance?

    Did you realize there were beheadings under Bush? Did you cry about him being weak? Selective outrage.

    Obama needs to follow Bush's lead and launch another multi-trillion dollar war in the Middle East. Then babysit the nations he topples/agitates indefinitely so that civil war doesn't break out. Perhaps he can drop bundles of money on the doorsteps of tribal leaders so that they have an incentive not to kill each other. Although wealth redistribution doesn't work in America (according to conservatives), it might work in the Middle East.

    I know man, I can't believe these people. It seems like DP is just a place for lazy old people to shake their fist angrily and whine about Obama without providing any actual constructive input. It's a tragedy this happened but on no ****ing planet is this Obama's fault. Why don't we blame the mother ****ers that did this instead?

    Or if we want to get really creative why don't we blame the guy who destabilized the region by invading it?

    We're not allowed to blame Bush. It's been 6 years, and if Obama can't clean up the Middle East in that amount of time, it's time to give the job back to Republicans. What this situation needs is some good ol' Texas backbone.

    They are barbarians. Rest in Peace Peter, knowing that your efforts for your fellow mankind is recognised and appreciated.

    Sincere condolences to Mr Kassig’s family and friends.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
