The whole thing has the look and feel of a B-movie.
I mean... swashbuckling Sunni buccaneers? Hairy guys in caves wasn't scaring us enough anymore so they busted out with the pirate costumes.

The videos are sickening aren't they? The things people say on the ground horrifying, because then I know its not just some movie - and that is more horrifying than some scarey movie, because its real people, real children.
To attack an enemy and win you must eradicate your enemy... in order to do that you must know who your enemy really is.. to date, this HAS been the problem, not really knowing / recognizing who your enemy is. And who but God can see into the hearts of men?
Sometimes allowing your enemy to stand up and declare himself as such is what is needed - sometimes, it is with tears that you stay still, and a sickness in the pit of your stomach, but you must allow them to stand apart from the rest and announce exactly who they are.
There will be casualties no matter, but wouldn't it be best if those innocent casualties were not by your own hand and out of your own ignorance? Let them separate out from among us... and declare their allegiances. Then we can shoot with a clear shot.

He has better teeth than me
Probably because he doesnt have access to the western world soft drinks, smoking and other chemicals that make your teeth go bad.
I realized that africans have exceptionally healthy teeth...
i think he is one of them... simply made a pact with vice to report some footage to them!
“At the end of the day, I have one question I must be able to answer before I set out: If I get into trouble, who can get me out?” Abouzeid said. “With the Islamic State, the question is almost nobody, not even my Al-Qaeda sources should they even wish to intercede on my behalf.”
WASHINGTON — President Obama sought to prepare Americans for an extended presence in the skies over Iraq, telling reporters on Saturday that the airstrikes he ordered this week could go on for months as Iraqis try to build a new government.
“I don’t think we’re going to solve this problem in weeks,” Mr. Obama said before leaving for a two-week vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. “This is going to be a long-term project.”

So we shouldn’t have fought against the Nazis?
Where did I ever say that?
Nowhere did I even say we shouldn't be fighting these people, just that bombing them won't work. It hasn't worked in Libya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, or any other place we've had the notion to eradicate terrorists. In fact, it's had the opposite effect of creating more jihadis.
Again, I don't know what the solution is, and I'm not here to present one, that's way above my pay grade.

now that's more like it!
obama has lobed about 10 bombs at them, so far.
he's got a carrier off in the med or somewhere.
he can do better than that.
It could have worked if instead of bombing civilians "We" actually started bombing extremists and well armed thugs and warlords but I guess that would conflict with "Our" support and training for those armed thugs and warlords.
I am surprised how some people so naively believe that "We" don't know what "We" are doing "There" and how somehow what "We" are doing "There" is "just not working".
the truth of the matter is (sadly) that those terrorists are very much needed and useful for "Us".
