in a manner of speaking. The game is the same according the Qur'an. (Kill 'em all, if they're not Muslim: imprison them if they convert after helping you to kill off the infidels!) Their book, not mine.

The beheading and the shooting of people is so far beyond the need for them to have their asses kicked out of existence, that it is almost ludicrous to say it! WE should have seen this coming when we left billions of dollars of equipment in-country, for a bunch of people who were never on our sides in the first place. They were glad to be rid of Saddam's boot-prints on their backs, but they wanted to choose whose would be next to endure.
We bought into the "We'll be seen as "liberators!" crap, because we wanted to feel as if our war made some sense. Now however, we are in danger everywhere that we can see. Trust me on this: this group is not intent on scaring anyone: they want to destroy everyone!!
They are not interested in negotiating with the US or with any other country; they want to produce their own world, the whole freaking thing!
They are the "Simon Barr-Sinister"(s) of the age. They want to "Rule the world!" (Watch Underdog reruns).
I feel so sorry for the Foley family to have had to endure this insulting and grievous torture of having to know that these gutless jacks murdered their son. I hope that they will one day receive some form of justice, for what he went through.
Now; are we willing to respond as we should; or will it be another joke-laden "surgical strikes will demoralize them" bunch of nonsense?
