    Ansar al sharia attacked our people in Benghazi. Now as to all 3 looking to take kudos for what they do to the US.....they look to keep playing on this day. I am not so keen on them trying to compete with one another as to who can do the worse damage.

    Truly.....I think we could take this day away from them wherein they wont want to celebrate nor remember. We could give them more than enough to actually fear. Dropping Napalm on their ass will tune them Right in.
    Hi MMC

    I can see why we'd like to hit them on 9-11,
    but I'm afraid we'd stir up a hornets nest!!

    Glad I'm not In charge to make these decisions.

    My main concern is that the idiots in charge watch
    out on 9-11 !!

    No more Benghazis!!!!!!!

    Sounds rather vague to me, a lot like Nixon's plan to end the Vietnam war.

    Heya Penn. They are going to try and hit us on this date anyways. No matter what we do.

    We also already have them stirred up.....BO and his Team have tightened down on Security with our overseas Embassies already. Even telling them should they need anything to send the word.

    Why wait to see what the enemy is going to do? How about forcing the enemy to do what we want them to do. For the change up.

    Hell, this forum went ape**** over Putin mentioning his nukes, and now some Americans want to drop one, or two....
    Like Congressmen and billionaires who want to use tactical nuclear weapons to obliterate Iran's underground nuclear facilities, for various interests and geopolitical concerns.

    Well.....just from the Airstrikes we now have some unintended consequences with this whole issue. As ISIS even losing ground has come back to take revenge. But that's shouldn't stop us.


    The Unintended Consequences Of The U.S. Campaign Against Islamic State.....

    A small group of people pick through putrefying human remains laid out on plastic sheets by the side of a road in northern Iraq, searching for any trace of missing friends and relatives. But the aftermath illustrates the unintended consequences of the U.S. air campaign against Islamic State. Kurdish and Shi'ite fighters have regained ground, but Sunni Muslims who fled the violence are being prevented from returning home and some have had their houses pillaged and torched.

    Rather than help keep the nation together, the air strikes risk being used by different factions for their own advantage in Iraq's sectarian and ethnic conflicts. The fallout also risks worsening grievances that helped Islamic State find support amongst Iraq's Sunnis, and allows the militant group to portray the U.S. strikes as targeting their minority sect. That may make it more difficult to bring Sunnis on side and convince them to fight the militants.....snip~

    Let's mourn and memorialize the death and destruction of 9/11 by creating more death and destruction!!


    The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral,
    begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy.
    Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.
    Through violence you may murder the liar,
    but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth.
    Through violence you may murder the hater,
    but you do not murder hate.
    In fact, violence merely increases hate.
    So it goes.
    Returning violence for violence multiplies violence,
    adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.
    Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
    only light can do that.
    Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
    only light can do that.
    Hate cannot drive out hate;
    only love can do that.
    Hate multiplies hate,
    violence multiplies violence,
    and toughness multiplies toughness
    in a descending spiral of destruction....
    The chain reaction of evil --
    hate begetting hate,
    wars producing more wars --
    must be broken,
    or we shall be plunged
    into the dark abyss of annihilation.

    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
    Strength To Love, 1963

    He's relying on Kerry to make the decisions? Really? hmmm... Karma can indeed be a b****, but she does have a sense of humor!

    Boehner gets early credit for refusing to say yes or no on whether Congress should approve of the actions of
    the President until he meets with Obama along with Pelosi, McConnell and Reid in about an hour.

    Meanwhile, most of the 535 congressional morons who are speaking out should pay attention to Boehner, both sides of aisle.

    One can only imagine how ISIL and Putin are laughing at how this Congress speaks out BEFORE the President even speaks, let alone acts .

    Yet you were outfront as a huge supporter of airstrikes MMC.
    I've already listened to people like you such as Krauthammer and Kristol who will never be accepting of anything your President does.

    He takes your advice, you strike at him on the flip side for repercussions.
    He doesn't take your advice, you strike at him for not bombing .

    If you say so, although what qualified as a liberal in the past and what qualifies as one today are often very, very different.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
