    Come on, I'm just dying to hear how you read this:
    They were kidnapped by islamists because they were trying to get an education and there's nothing muslims hate more than women getting an education.

    Most are likely dead by now the rest, traumatized.
    Also, there's nothing Obama can do.
    And concluded what you concluded. Come, show me your line of reasoning.

    The implication was that the rest, traumatized, were now ruined and not worth saving. That it's easy to assume most are dead.
    And not worth our effort to save.

    You're projecting so hard I could run powerpoint presentations off of you.

    Projecting what? If that's not what you mean, feel free to clarify. It was a bit harsh but that's how it read.

    Or...own it. Up to you.

Hell, get the UN to start doing **** again. It's always the U.S. that has to do this **** and I'm tired of it. We focus on every single issue plaguing us domestically, once those are adressed, then and ONLY THEN can we once again begin helping the world.

    Cameron just joined in the search, so the President's choice is simple. Pass over the satellite images of the area to Britain, and sic the poodle on those vile kidnappers.

    We should do the same thing we did for the missing girls in Ohio. Nothing.

    We should do something. Humanitarian aid is one of the few areas where international intervention is morally acceptable.

    He makes a statement of fact.

    Most ARE likely dead or traumatized. Do you think differently and if so why?

    ....also he says NOTHING about not trying to help them. Nothing...
