    It's not a stupid question- I'm not American so I don't have a dog in the hunt. I'm just wondering why it's different if the hostages are American or Syrian.
    Human shields aren't necessarily hostages.

    What if it was your ass out there? I bet you wouldn't care who got blowed up. But, we all know that'll never be the case. Don't we?

    A target rich environment, being surrounded.
    A tad of history for those not aware of the Marine Corp history.
    Older than the US.

    I agree that might be their mindset, but it would also be like shoving your hand into a bag of poisonous snakes.

    Marines also have a history of making mince meat of enemies. Backing away from fights was not covered in my green monster.

    Of course human shields are hostages. If they weren't, if they were complicate, they wouldn't be shields, would they? Just that they're not Americans. You wouldn't consider bombing American hostages but Syrians are just 'collateral damage'.
    As for my ass, that argumentum ad hominem represents your back to the wall, laddybuck. If you've got nothing left, you're better off saying nothing.

    I understand... but you know the deal... it's our Title, it means something, so don't just give it away.
    ..and there's no need to call me Sir.. i'm just a grumpy old retired SgtMjr, not an Officer.

    No, you're wrong about human shoelds being hostages.

    Don't make assinine comments about our troops and I won't have to use that argument.

    Oh believe me when I say I carry the title proud.

    I call all Marines Sir. My best friend ( Retired Mst Sgt) lives two blocks from me and I call him Sir every morning and it drives him nuts. It's also something my Dad, who is also a Marine drilled into me early.

    Thank you for your service. It matters.
    Marines right about now would have prevented this mess with ISIS.
