    They just killed Steven Sotloff the second American be-headed.
    Of course every one in the Government is jumping up and down and saying Obama is not doing anything to stop this. I've got one message for the warmongers and super hypocrites; sorry, Obama got it right.

    I guess we are totally forgetting that we killed at least over a hundred thousand innocent civilians in Iraq as well in Afghanistan, Yemen, Mali, Sudan. Somalia etc etc. Let alone Vietnam. So why make such a fuss about 2 Americans? Are we sunk so deep that we are not realizing that we are the cause of all this fanatism. So as I guess also the Bible (wow) says who is "completely clean of crime etc.) let those throw the first stone.

    However after this happening the "war" crie-ers will be pre-dominant and probably get their way; because two lives are more important than thousands; they do not count. Love those hypocrites. Sorry we asked for it!!

    I'm waiting for John McCain to fly over there with his gallant steed and saber in hand and start beheading them all. As soon as he does I'll run right down to the local Calvary recruiting station and volunteer to give his horse a good rub down after the battle.

    PGR. I doubt if McCain can stay in the saddle of any horse; anyway we've got certain people on the site who drool even more than McCain, if they see war equipment and get a total kick out of it. Why those people vote for the Dems. is a mystery to me. They rather spent it on a huge aircraft carrier costing just about a trillion, than bridges, infrastructure or bankrupt cities and elderly people etc.

    The "voice of reason" (Thomas Friedman) published a very thoughtful column this morning about ISIS

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/03/opinion/thomas-friedman-what-are-we-really-dealing-with-in-isis.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=c-column-top-span-region&region=c-column-top-span-region&WT.nav=c-column-top-span-region


    True to form, Duck Commander Phil Robertson revealed that he's pretty much got the same attitude as ISIS, when he said, "convert them or kill them". Naturally, he revealed his "wisdom" to Sean Hannity on FOX "news" just last night.

    If you're a good student of history, that was the motto of the Crusades during the Middle Ages, and they lasted about 200 years.

    "Guy" exellent; right on!! Friedman got it right. Too bad most Americans do not think that far. It clearly shows as I said many times the "warhawks" here have no clue whatsoever.

    If McCain went over there.......... he'd just be taken as a prisoner (AGAIN). The only part of his war efforts worth mentioning was that he was a P.O.W.
    He didn't contribute then just like he doesn't contribute now. But his mouth still goes at full speed. And to think, he could have possibly been our Prez.

    Don't allow McCain to fly his own fighter. He crashed two and the last one he crashed he ended up as a POW. His pilot skills are known about as well as he is a politician.

    I'm glad he did not fly the F35 (was not available then yet) we would have lost close to a "billion" . ( if it were F4's then may be only 200 million; peanuts) It also shows how good his training was, as good as the Ferguson cops I guess. But I must say he's gotten much smarter and makes fortunes on the war lobby industry now; so your promotion of our forces will make him only richer. Congratulations.

    How much better depends where you are coming from. For many Rednecks it probably would be a better place. At least they wouldn't be able vote against themselves (and us) anymore.

    Your last line may be correct for quite a few people who love to make a huge battlefield of this world and love the toys to do so. May be there is a special "heaven" for these idiots (equiped with mini warships, submarines, F35's, drones, nukes etc.)

    On the news as predicted the rambling and hype has reached the level expected; even sleepy Biden woke up from his full year sleep; Amazing on how predictable our government is. Yes they are going to "destroy" ISIS but it may take a few years; remember Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam; they would "win" those wars in no time, 13 years later we are still in Afghanistan and Iraq. Wow. We were also going to win in Vietnam from the Vietcong; they fought likely the same way as ISIS; draw them in and then knock them off; it worked in Vietnam, but we did not learn much from it. We bombed it to hell using napalm, agent orange etc. but still we lost. I'm affraid that this will be a simular picture; there are plenty of other fanatic groups which may join ISIS; even when they would be wiped out plenty of other factions will pop up. No I see it it as a never ending hit the "gopher" game. It will cost us dearly in the end. The worst part of it we ourselves created all this mess; but refuse to acknowledge that. I guess Saddam Hussain would have had peace; by ruling with an iron fist.

    Again the stupidity in this country goes on and on; on the news Sotloff was first in the hands of another group of "muslims" ( moderates?) and handed him over to ISIS. Thus like I said a million times ALL repeat ALL muslim uprising groups hate America. So which group in Syria is Obama going to support?
    He should know better being in Indonesian schools.!! Furthermore concentrating on to wipe out the "leaders" of ISIS is pure naive. Sure we killed Osama Bin Laden; did that reduce Al Quaida? No,it only grew bigger!! Sorry ISIS has plenty of people to take the place of their leaders; so concentrating on that is pure ignorance; Obama got it right to cut of their recources and money/weapons flow. May be we should sent some of our fake Ebola patients, to scare the hell out of them. Or drop a load of Bibles; so they can cook. Anyway which ever way you look at it we are screwed because of our eagerness to start wars all over the place.
