    If the army losing a battle could merely surrender, then be released on a prisoner swap to then go back into combat, there would be no such thing as destroying the enemy.

    It also is an incentive to take prisoners, including civilians, if this is a way to get your own leaders and troops back.

    The claim that we do anything to get our soldiers back is outright false and even militarily absurd.
    Then I suggest you go read some 'Merican history, guy. And it makes doggone good sense to the grunt on the ground who KNOWS - because of prisoner swaps just like Bergdahl's - that America WILL come and get him, one way or another.

    Re: Is Obama viewed as "Weak" by Foreign Leaders?

    I travel extensively in Europe but do not hob-nob with the leadership - only with ordinary people.

    Almost universally, when the name "Obama" is mentioned, there are giggles. I asked one pub owner in North Yorkshire why the giggles and he told me it was out of politeness because I was regarded as a "regular" (I go there 2-3 times on each visit, usually twice a year). Out of politeness they refrain from outright laughter.

    Folks in North Yorkshire are not generally known for being "gentle" so I appreciate their restraint.

    Indeed, Obama's policies in Egypt, Libya and Syria are failures, just as Bush's Iraq policy is a failure. But Putin didn't outsmart Obama in Syria. Obama sought a resolution for the use of force in Syria (which I'm sure would have delighted you) dispatching Clinton three times to the UN, all three times China and Russia said NO! The British parliament pulled its support for military action in Syria, 70% of Americans opposed it and Obama couldn't get congress to authorize it. So what would you have had Obama do, declare that he's the decider, act the belligerent, and attack another Middle East country that had not attacked us? Don't answer that.

    Russia's outmaneuvering Obama in Syria was the culmination of an incoherent foreign policy in general whose incoherence, or non-existent policy started the day he took office.

    This fantasy that Obama is universally liked world-wide needs to be debunked.

    I have yet to talk to anybody in Mexico that has a favorable opinion of him.
