    Had you really been part Scots, you'd have known that Scotch is a drink, not a nationality. Is this one of those cases where spurious internet claims aft gang a'gley?

    My family hails from near Durham. A little bit Scot because of the interlopers, but more Scotch than anything, I think. Haven't talked to any of 'em in a while. Maybe they've sobered up.

    They're all over the place over there now. They're too prolific to be Highlanders. It's like being a "Smith" or a "Jones" over here. There's waaaay more than one.

    Durham is not, nor ever has been Scottish. You mean your family were Scottish migrants? Then you're part-Scot. You might only be part-Scotch if you have a cirrhosis diagnosis.

    What should the response of President Obama be?
    None of the above.

    If they are stupid enough to mass on the outside of the base, the folks on the ground will call in airstrikes and make them into well done hamburger.

    It appears they seem to know there only hope is to keep running small suicide missions to hope to find an opening and inflict some damages until they are wiped out.

    I can tell you what the marines and Special Forces would like to do! :-)

The less he does, the better. He's a spineless fish of a dickweed who spites our men in uniform and never considers that maybe making decisions about military tactics is above his paygrade.

    Give him a camera - let him take some more selfies and just get the **** out of the way if he's not going to be impeached like he should be.
    oo-rah.
