    Oh, then, the issue will be solved by March at the latest. The extremists must be shaking in their boot.. I mean sandals now.

    It was pretty last minute and the security measures needed for him there would have been troublesome. Good call not to go, he should just give vocal support and move on, he's got a lot on his plate at the moment. It would have been odd to see any Europeans complaining about it given Paris is just a few hours away for them, luckily I didn't seen any whining from the Europeans. Better believe Fox News would have been talking a whole bunch of nonsense if he had gone. Not worth it, we sent Eric Holder, that's enough.

    More power to the people of France!

    What can Kerry say that isn't already well known? Do we pander to bullies, or do we make certain they completely understand that we will not tolerate their behavior? The idea of "talking things over" with allies is going to have little effect on terrorists who intend to rule the world. Would it change your thinking, or would you figure that you are succeeding in your agenda to scare people into doing what you want? We have the ability to turn their land into glass if need be - why are we being cowed by those with backward "dark ages" type thinking?

    Yeah, they are shaking so much that today ISIS is openly walking down the Streets of Tripoli in Libya. Plus they have taken another city. Wonder if our MS media is even picking that up.

    Not to mention you already know about Pakistan and Afghanistan Taliban pledging to ISIS.

    Biden should have been there....or someone high ranking anyways.
    Obama shouldn't have gone...he'd steal the show.

    An unprecedented gathering of statesmen and we don't send anyone?...that's not real cool on our part..

    Heya Lady P. Well I guess they have to schedule that in with all their other meetings.....go over all they know, and agree that they know what the problem is.

    Well, lots of talk hasn't changed things so far - the terrorists are still killing people and gobbling countries up at we speak, but miracles do happen, I guess.

    Don't worry. We'll talk them to death, paper them over with signed statements, and bury them in a pile of hash tags.
