    Yeah, it was tasteless. So what else is new? His "joke" made a valid point. That's why I put a "Like" on it. It calls attention to a spineless leader who thinks the path to peace is "understanding" and "empathizing" with your enemy. How about just sending him to his 72 or 99 or however many virgins in heaven with an AGM-114 II Hellfire missile? Anyone can understand that.

    i mean...i am drunk, but my point is that it's ****ing ridiculous to make jokes and have that kind of attitude all the time. be a human being. have some compassion. understand that we are all in this together and you won't make jokes about 100 children being murdered a day after it happened.

    Once you sober up, hopefully you'll realize that it wasn't a joke. Hillary's recent comment immediately came to mind when I heard the news because this a perfect example to show how f****** stupid it is. Trust me, since atheists don't believe in the afterlife, I believe in creating hell on Earth for people who maliciously kill even one innocent child.

    The real joke is that anyone would attempt to empathize with people who willingly slaughter innocent school kids. And when a person who has White House ambitions rationalizes the behavior of an enemy as brutal as the Taliban or ISIS or whomever, the sooner she's called on the carpet for it the better.

    "Empathizing" is not "sympathizing," nor is it "rationalizing."

    Notice in the text you quoted I didn't use the word "sympathizing." And when Hillary uses a word like "understanding" the only way you get to that point is to dismiss or rationalize away behavior that is unforgivable. Basically, she's rejecting the logic of Churchill or Truman and saying that we're smarter now; you seek to "understand" your enemy so that you can find common ground for compromise. Well, some people are just evil and don't deserve any such understanding, empathy, sympathy, or whatever the **** one wants to call it. "Smart Power" in the 21st Century should mean that instead of loading B-17s or B-29s with incendiaries you pack MQ-9 Reapers with as many JDAMs or Hellfires as you can get on them.

    No, I put "sympathizing" in there due to other posters I've seen conflating the two terms.

    Nobody, Hillary Clinton included, has discussed compromising with ISIS. That said, you don't think it's important to know your enemy and understand why they think and act the way they do? Ever read Sun Tzu?

    No, I've never read Sun Tzu, but I presume that in the The Art of War he wasn't discussing knowing your enemy so you can engage in diplomacy and make nice, was he? Or was he saying you should know your enemy so you could destroy it?
