    A pretzle has a much higher probability of harming the President directly than a terrorist. Some dude may have hopped a fence once but:

    A) That won't happen again, security has been tightened
    B) He could never have made it to the President

    So it is without precedent. At no point in American history has the President of the United States been beheaded by a terrorist. In our current system, there is no way a terrorist could get to the President to do so.

    So let's stop freaking out over the rantings of improbable actions by crazies. The President is in no more danger than he was previously, the terrorists cannot get close enough to behead him.

    How is making the OP aware that the post was obvious considered as "Ad hominem?"

    Not bloody likely. And if even attempted I expect significant fury from this population regardless of their thoughts on the POTUS

    I think you understood my response, but just in case, I agree, you were right to say it, in part because of the reason you stated.

    Of course the simple counter argument to your rationale is that the attack on the president is only unlikely because a lot of people take the threat more seriously than you do.

    When the secret service starts thinking like you do that is when guys jump the fence and wind up in White House.

    But they don't, so it's moot. Any other arguments that don't apply?

    Absolutely. It's his job, and he should have been on top of it.

    Yep.

    I should not say it, but that's one of the things that gets me about Obama. He does that same old rah rah cheerleading crap that is misleading. That said, he didn't start that. It seems that has been a part of our foreign policy PR for a while. Remember that "mission accomplished" BS? EWWW!! I can't stand that kind of crap. I figured Obama would do some of that, but I didn't expect him to take it to the same level as in the past. Again, that's one of the things that burns me up about him.

Take back their religion from the Heretics looking to dominate and take control of it. Now that's where it starts and then with other Muslims going after these heretics despite any belief they have in Sharia Law.

    Which we still have the Arab countries telling us.....they cannot do it on their own. That's where we come and others come in as it is everybody's problem.

    But you are Right about dealing with those so called Allies.


    US should stop Syria not ISIS: Saudi prince.....

    U.S. policymakers should concentrate on eliminating the threat posed by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad instead of Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, according to an influential member of the Saudi Arabian royal family.

    Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud told CNBC at the World Economic Forum in Davos that the reason why Islamic State exists is because of what's happening in Syria and has called on U.S. authorities including the government, the Central Intelligence Agency and the military to act.....snip~

    US should stop Syria not ISIS: Saudi Prince.

    I would tell the Saud to shut up and get to work.....Now! Since they are the cause of this a whole issue with Syria.
    Well we certainly should not have to do it. It should actually fall on the players over there to do it. And let me clarify, I still think there is a chance for them to step up to the plate, with some limited support from us. But if they don't do it, for whatever reason, because it is our problem as well at the end of the day, we may very well have to do it. I really really hope it does not come to that because that would be very very ugly. But that may be the only way.

    Definitely agree with respect to the Saudis and Syria. That's right, tell them to quit whining and get to work.

    EDIT:

    I almost forgot, like that "BO peep" thing!!! That was a good one!!!!

    DDD does not seem to think so, I'd like to hear him own up to why.

    For what it's worth, I don't think any rational person truly thinks that a band of ISIS fighters could get to the POTUS, but this isn't about whether it's possible, rather the policy of appeasement followed by this administration is worthless and only plays into the enemies hand. Like we have been saying for this entire failed Presidency.
