Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people. ~W.C. Fields
Whether it's ISIS or Born Again Christians, death and brutality will always be a fetish for religious conservatives. It's basically porn for conservatives online. Fox News knows their audience.
What, you're mad because he said "act of terror" instead of "terrorism?" Really?There's something Obama always does.
If he knows what he's saying will be widely heard or read he'll make sure to include something for both sides of an issue, while making the thrust of his remarks clear.
That way there's something he and his peeps can point to when he's challenged.
Yes, he'll call it barbarism and then minimize or rationalize it.
Think "the video" and "act of terror" re Benghazi.
One of you will end up here next!
No, but it shows Fox viewers are idiots, for lapping up this propaganda. Why should one death of one soldier (pilot) trigger world wide drumbeats for more war ? It is complete manipulation of a segment of the population.They don't like seeing anything that shows Obama is an idiot and this does
Where were you, where the viewer demanded to see someone with half their torso blown away? They don't show that on television. Do you live in a pulp fiction fantasy or something ?The viewer demands to see it
Meanwhile...when a news agency dares to show who those sadistic ****s really are, people trip over themselves rushing to spew their usual hatred over the news agency?
Stop ISIS? Please....
But you are mixing two conflicts. The first Iraqi war was over an invasion of Kuwait and a threat to the worlds economy (via the oil supply at the time). I cited the brutality of the Iraqi military on the Kuwaitis from GW1.
No. I'm not mad at anything. It's an observation. He & his entire team stressed that a video inspired the Benghazi attack.
In his comments at the time he included the phrase "act of terror".
After a couple of weeks of blaming the video they began saying he blamed terrorism and he even said so in his debate with Romney.
I assume you caught that at the time.
It was typical of Obama.
noun | \l i v b a t\ : preposterous nonsense, often demagogic, a major political figure (esp. Liberal) or media personality would say hoping to have it picked up and repeated by Low Information Voters in order to become conventional wisdom.
Its easy for anyone who has never been a POW to say that when you are a POW the only thing you give is rank and serial number.Plus not all POW situations are the same. I can't imagine that being a POW of muslim extremists as the same as being a POW of the Vietcong.2. The Jordanian pilot apparently revealed tons of information to his captors, specifically the types of military fighter jets used, missile capabilities and air bases used. To me as a veteran, this is dangerous! When a POW, name, rank, serial number is all you give...nothing more, anything less. Nonetheless, I thank God that neither I nor anyone I know were in this guy's shoes. Who knows what he was promised if he gave up vital information though. In the end, his death might have been the spark that was needed to convince the Arab World to take up arms against this madness! Sad it had to come to this to get their attention.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
