"Rook" has some thoughts on the beheading of James Foley.
Obama's persistent cognitive dissonance has reared it's ugly head again...
Journalist James Foley was barbarically, savagely beheaded by a ISIS Muslim captor with a British accent. Now Obama is putting Eric Holder and his agents on the case to arrest, Mirandize and bring to trial in federal court Foley's executioner, who is apparently somewhere in Syria or Iraq. Then, if he's convicted, the taxpayers will support him in prison for the rest of his life - including cable TV, a gym for staying in condition, air conditioning, three meals a day and clothing. All the things he doesn't have now, costing the taxpayers $80,000 per year.
What resources do the Department of Homeland Security have to accomplish this mission? None! The idea is ridiculous, but politically it plays to Obama's base.
Why doesn't Obama task our SEALs to locate and capture the terrorist, interrogate him under military rules for any useful intelligence, then drop him into the propeller wash of an aircraft carrier? Because the liberals might not approve, although the vast majority of people would cheer for the SEALs and appreciate not having the expense of a trial and lengthy incarceration.
This is a prime example of Obama putting politics and self interest above the interests of the nation, which he has done consistently since taking office. For shame!

"Rook" has some thougts on Obama.
The average American voter doesn't understand military or diplomatic strategy or tactics. In fact, the average American voter probably doesn't understand the difference between strategy and tactics. By knowledge and training the average American voter is therefore unqualified to give an opinion on strategy, or the tactics used to ensure the success of a strategy.
So why does Obama consistently cater to his leftist base on matters of tactics and strategy involving the national security of this country? The majority of Obama's base, and probably the majority of American voters, don't want American "boots on the ground" in Iraq. Is that a good reason to NOT deploy American troops to protect our national security interests? Is that a good reason to NOT develop a strategic plan for all contingencies in Iraq? Is that a good reason to NOT arm our allies in the region, like the Kurds?
Obama has a DUTY to do whatever is necessary to protect our national security interests. Anything less is treason. So why does he only do what is popular with voters? They don't know the best course of action except by a lucky guess. The reason is fear!
Obama fears leading, lest he be judged on his leadership. Leadership is also time consuming and requires commitment. That would interfere with golfing, vacations and fund raising. Too big a sacrifice for his lifestyle.
Obama is also in fear of alienating his base, lest he be without ANY fans at all, outside of the Muslims of the world. That would ruin his legacy, which is all important to him and Michelle. That's the reason for his fevered fund raising, to build the Obama Library (is it planned for Chicago, Honolulu or Nairobi?).
The question now is will Obama finally do his duty, or will the Pentagon have to step up and do it for him? I think Obama would be okay with that, as long as he could continue to golf, vacation and raise funds.
"Peter" has some thoughts on ISIS attacking the Kurds.
ISIS is attacking the Kurds with a vengeance. The Kurds, longtime allies of the U.S., are not people who drop their guns and run, like the Iraqis, yet they are losing ground and in danger of losing control of the largest dam in Iraq. That could interrupt power supply to a large portion of the region. What is the U.S. doing to help our Kurdish allies? Nothing!
Obama, the emperor with no clothes, and Kerry, the empty suit, have no logical strategy for the conflict. Cognitive dissonance reigns in the White House. When we should be launching air strikes and shipping heavy weapons to the Kurds, we instead mouth platitudes while decrying the casualties. Not providing the necessary weapons and assistance in an expeditious manner will place the region and our national security interests at risk, but Obama and Kerry are apparently unconcerned - making their combined ignorance and cognitive dissonance even more obvious.
Kerry's ignorance and naiveté was never more evident than in his arrogant attempt to insert himself into the Israeli-Hamas conflict as a mediator-proxy for Obama. Their abject ignorance of the complex relationships involved and the strategies being employed by Hamas, combined with monumental arrogance, led to Kerry and the Administration being embarrassed and humiliated on the world stage.
I am also embarrassed and humiliated that my fellow countrymen and women would choose to have such unqualified, disengaged, ignorant and cowardly, yet arrogant leadership for this still great country - and then RE-ELECT such leadership after seeing how they performed in the previous four years.
America may not be able to withstand another Administration like this one.
"Ernie" has some thoughts about Obama and Islam.
"Rook" has some thoughts on Islam.
The Christians in Egypt, who have been there for 2,000 years, are being attacked, their churches burned and their priests murdered. In the past decade thousands of Christians have been murdered in Egypt - not by Al Qaeda or other terrorists, but by their Muslim neighbors who are obeying their holy Qur'an. Christians in most other Muslim controlled countries are suffering similar fates. And it's not just Christians being attacked; Jews, Buddhists, Hindus - anyone who isn't a Muslim will become a target.
The myth that Muslims are peace loving and should be tolerated in OUR neighborhoods is putting this nation at risk. Look what is happening in Paris, London, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, etc. They are being torn apart by Muslim activism, fighting to take political control of their areas. It starts with demanding that Shariah law be adhered to in their neighborhoods. Then they demand that police and other government authorities stay out of their neighborhoods. If resistance is met, they stage large scale protests. If that doesn't get the desired response, they riot. Next comes the terrorism of assassinations, arson and bombings; not by Al Qaeda, or Al Shabab or some other Jihadist gang, but by their Muslim residents. Whatever it takes to get control. All of these things have happened or are happening in European countries. It is an incontrovertible fact that can be verified simply by reading or listening to the foreign press.
Why the foreign press? Because the news media in the USA believe it is politically incorrect to report such matters, as it may hurt the feelings of the Muslims here. You also can't be told the truth because it may influence you to be suspicious of Muslims and their intentions here; and that would also hurt their feelings.
If we allow sufficient numbers of Muslims to emigrate here then, inevitably, the same things will happen here that are happening in Europe - in time. It is written in the Qur'an.
