    Holy hell is that what it's called now? Having "the balls to make a call?" Sweet mother of baby Jesus, all itty bitty and wrapped in a blanket. Bull****, this was you riding the "anti-Obama at all costs" bandwagon and posting a bunch of nonsense based upon your over active partisan gland. It's a good thing you admitted you were wrong...sort of. "I was wrong, but don't you DARE say anything to me...cause I admitted it, and therefore I am immune from criticism."
    People like you live just to call others out when they are wrong in opposing things you support, and ignore when others are right about YOUR being wrong.
    You keep telling yourself that, and maybe once in a while jump up and actually prove me wrong. Then let's see how that plays out.
    And I get labeled the hyper-partisan? Seriously?
    Yes. You do, and this thread is a very good example of why you get that label.

    No no. Come on now! How dare you doubt that the turnout of the situation is the only outcome that MrVicchio wasn't planning on. Here is how you can bet your house he would have reacted if this thing had turned out any other way :

    1. The hostage gets killed :

    - MrVicchio along with Rev, TD, American, GottaHurt, Navy Pride, Aquapub etc etc all post around 10,000 threads with the same names about how Obama was too irrational in using force and getting a hostage killed.

    2. Obama negotiates :

    - MrVicchio along with Rev, TD, American, GottaHurt, Navy Pride, Aquapub etc etc all post around 100,000,000 threads with the same names about how Obama is making us look weak by negotiating with pirates.

    -------------

    Do you really doubt that they weren't betting every dollar they have on this turning out any other way then the way it actually did? TD is still looking for something to complain about (see his rant on not wanting to call these guys pirates because they don't say Arg!') and Triad is still bitching about who knows what. I mean. I know some people just need something to bitch about. But the way this situation turned out and the responses I've seen from the current right wing headliners on this forum is indicative that Obama did something incredibly right.

    While everyone is getting technical over terminology, by definition, terrorist/terrorism and pirate/piracy are not even close.

    Kidnap/kidnappers would be the appropriate terminology. They took a man by force and held him for ransom.

    terrorism - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

    piracy - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary

    kidnap - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary
    "They took a man by force and held him for ransom."

    Exactly. A criminal act - and not a terrorist one.

    Your definition of "piracy" from the Meriam Webster dictionary is pretty good, you should really have read it before you posted it. By my reading, you are stretching the definition of terrorism (most crime involves an element of terror) so does that make a paedophile a terrorist? or a bank robber using guns.. is he a terrorist too?

    These guys committed the crime of piracy and of kidnap and got what they deserved. Calling them terrorists glorifies them above being lowlife scum who fell into crime.

    Well, he did what most (hopefully all) presidents would have done. Insofar as he did the common sense thing and approved the use of force to save American lives in this specific situation, I'll give him credit for not being a complete nincompoop.

    if "Rev" persists in initiating threads with no purpose except to spread false accusations against the administration, you may count on me showing up to piss on his parade. I detect no fairness in his posts, no search for truth, no reasoned opposition....only the spin of naked right wing ideology.
    We have enough enemies in the world today without a supposed "patriot" announcing that America should not support its president. If you cannot see the hypocrisy in this obstinate obstructionism, I will continue to remind you.

    As for an apology, please let me know when you start pounding sand and I will consider it.

    What are you cackling about now?

    do you have anything intelligent to say or are you simply trolling me now? Let me know, thanks!

    Dear Captain,
    Are these not personal attacks, or do they not count because they come from a fellow partisan?
