    There is no such thing as a global authority. Nice try though.

    Of course you don't want to talk about that, because it blows your argument away.

    Not really. He really sounds to me like a bad troll.

    The ICC is a global authority that has convicted and sentenced heads of state.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    How's that? You a denier of the numbers of civilians that have fallen prey to the US PD, too?

    OMG. The horror. The evil. They must be stopped. But how?

    One thing to do is to give poison pills to all military who enter the area, so they can kill themselves, rather than be tortured and killed like this.

    Probably not much different then what they've been doing, continue to train Islamic extremists within their borders.

    There are two lifelong friends. They each were high school football stars. Now they are each older, balding, overweight men. Similar as they are, one is a Republican and one is Democrat. The Republican looks in the mirror and sees the high school football player with cheerleaders on his arms. He smiles and says "What a stud I am". The Democrat looks in the mirror and sees a balding, overweight older man and says "I am fat. I need to get to the gym". Which one hates himself?

    Having just seen the ISIS video of the burning of this Jordanian pilot, I can see why it took almost a month for it to be released. We're not talking here about a 2 minute rough clip of a beheading. This is a 23 minute short film, a propaganda piece at its finest, and had it been presented at a film festival or for Oscar consideration it might well have won an award. This is a very polished and professional piece.

    We need to get very serious about what's happening in Syria and Iraq right now - this ISIS endeavour is very well organized and appears to be very well financed. This is no Junior Varsity exercise, as someone famously and foolishly once said. This is, as my Canadian Prime Minister said, ISIS declaring war on us, all of us. We'd better wake up to that reality.
    We have a winner:

    ...To carry out this strategy, ISIL needs a serious injection of recruits to build upon its current fighting force of about 30,000 at most, which is significantly fewer fighters than each of its opponent forces: the Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, Iraqi and Syrian government forces and even potential Sunni tribal rivals. Simply put, ISIL is surrounded by enemies with greater fighting power, and needs to grow its military strength to create an Islamic—and Sunni—state inside Iraq and Syria.

    So why the beheadings? In a word, publicity: They increase the group’s profile as the biggest challenger to the supposed greatest enemy of Islam. This allows ISIL to draw from a significantly larger pool of recruits, many with strong anti-American sentiment, which ISIL desperately needs to fight local battles as the group tries to carve out a de facto state. Yes, the beheadings are meant to challenge and intimidate the Western public, but that is only a secondary benefit for ISIL, whose focus remains on defeating enemies in immediate proximity.

    Like I have been saying, the media needs to carefully consider to what extent they report the details of these executions.

    a better solution is to have superior numbers and firepower so we don't lose people to them as prisoners. and if someone is captured and murdered, all ISIS prisoners held should be killed immediately and as cruelly as possible

    you have to out terror these assholes
