    It won't help. I've had someone threaten my life before. I've already made my decision, there will be no negotiations. It's easy to take moral high ground until it happens to you.

    In the end it would have been far easier just to leave troops in Iraq.

    With the exception that Saddam was a brutal dictator that didn't have any religious world domination motivations. He was just your typical mideast dictator. ISIS is what you get over there when you take down the brutal dictators.
    Can you name another middle East dictator that has invaded its neighbor in the last 30 years? Saddam did it twice.

    Also, do you oppose ousting Gaddafi in Libya? Seems he was serving much the same purpose...

    Ah, no. There is a difference between self defense and murder. The threat was recent, but he is in jail now. Not much of a concern any more. But before his trial when he was out I carried a bit larger caliber than normal. If he is to be released I will be informed.

    Watch the news.

    But I see while Britons head has come off vacation to try to deal with this, our 'leader' gave a statement and headed back to the golf course.

    No you probably cant, but you can match them and make them very unhappy, and more importantly make it pointedly clear you are more than willing to be as ugly to them and theirs as they are. It is especially effective if you can do it at will and at little cost to yourself. The other thing is this type of tactic is NOT aimed the extremist themselves but their enablers those who support them, ie their families and clans and tribes ect.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
