I too, love this story and I applaud the POTUS for saying it like it is.

Mainly because, as it turns out, the shoe that actually fits the GOP is not the one they portray themselves as wearing.

Aren't these the very same people who insist that we're a nation founded on "Christian" principles?

Are we even reading the same Bible or did I just miss the part where Christ instructed us to fear Muslim children?

Furthermore, did I misunderstand the part about America being the home of the "brave?"

Or is that actually referring to a young native American Indian warrior?

The GOP just can't get enough of Trump spewing bigoted insults at every opportunity, but the moment Obama points out their own cowardice and blatant hypocrisy, they get their panties all in a wad. Go figure!

Few things embarrass me more than America being the home of the modern day GOP.

It's just as convenient as your mischaracterizing my statements. I said an interesting argument could be made about stability in Europe as compared to the Americas. You chose to ignore my other points, flipped out and latched on to one sentence based on my opinion. You went off about cartel violence in Mexico, pimping your own thread to boot. I explained my rationale but, like a dog with a rhetorical bone, you seem to have an insatiable need to vanquish all opinion contrary to yours, at the expense of this thread. I declare you "King of the Internet" today. Good job.

My apologies Lucidity.

So this is how we fight terrorism in 2015. Harsh language towards your own countrymen. Maybe Obama should draw a red line for the republicans.


Uh...... I think that pretty much started back when the democrats decided to support a black, Kenyan, Muslim, anti-Christ for POTUS back in '08.

It's a little late to start crying about it now.

I'm an atheist, a registered independent, I've never voted for a republican, and I have legitimate concerns stemming from a complete failure to end the War on Terror.

Obama has no regard for Americans, like me. I may as well not exist because he cannot use me to to push his crap partisan agenda.

Don't get mad at me because your claims were proven completely wrong. Just admit your mistake and move on.

When the war comes to you, because, you know, it's such a freaking SHOCK to people when it does, you deal with it and go on. Otherwise they win. Over and over again.


This should be directed at the able-bodied Syrians trying to seek refuge from their own country where...big shocker...war came to them.

They should deal with it and go on, not run and seek refuge somewhere else...especially somewhere that is so culturally different than from where they come.

Or does that logic only work against those of us who prefer not to let tens of thousands of people in from a nation that has a name that is shared with the name of ISIS? A process that realistically could let hundreds of terroristic ideologues into our country undetected...

Also, claiming the "widows and orphans" BS is a lie, as it has been shown numerous times to not be the case. Sure, a percentage of the refugees are widows and orphans, but that's not the bulk of them.

Since the 80s/90s (maybe and probably even earlier), in the early 00s Syria was always on the hit list in the ME of nat ions to topple for their real estate. In fact, it was a toss up as to whether they were or Iraq was up first. And I know we can find posts right here on ATS that predicted this. And many Syrians knew this too.

Ted Cruz Last Year: We Should Welcome Syrian Refugees, And We Can Do It Safely


It's interesting how our politicians were saying it was fine to take the refugees in as recently as last year, yet now they are all terrorists and we should quarantine them off like animals.

Is he back pedaling this now and saying he just meant Syrian Christians? Unreal. Opportunustic. And vile.

And this is why Obama is a terrorist. He has made it clear that he refuses to listen to legitimate concerns stemming from failures that fall at his feet. He'd rather exploit them to make his party appear superior.

Do I believe for one second that he or any other partisans that just want to feel superior to 'the other party' give two sh**s about the refugees? No way. It's all about a feeling of partisan superiority.

Case in point, the arguments for making America's homeless the priority -- it was conspicuously missing from Obama's partisan blather. Yes, it just came up recently in response to the refugee crisis -- so I don't believe anyone really cares. It serves as a test though. Those raising the issue know that the partisan exploiters really don't care about the lives of the refugees or America's homeless. They are having too much fun calling republicans bigots some more.

the disinformation being uttered by Hussein Obama is just to re-aim the focus to waffling Republicans...
the same republicans that were elected for their promise to overturn a lot of this regimes policies...but they caved-in without a fight, so YES the republicans are zombies with NO guts

but that's not the point....
Hussein Obama is trying to distract the populace from learning about the policy of creating a 'safe-zone' in Syria where the anti-Assad terrorists are safe from Russian bombs and the soon-to-be-deployed 150k man Army of special forces....
usa & turkey are trying to team up to actually rescue the IS/ISIS and other factions/cult armies used by the west under the false guise of 'safe zones' from the Russian operations to liquidate terror units fighting in the Syrian (and perhaps Iraqi) borders


Obama is such a petulant child at times, especially after he has be out maneuvered by Putin time-after-time

Man! You sure know how to make things tough.

I'm assuming, that you're speaking to the issue of continued drone strikes and/or occupation of middle east countries. If I'm wrong, please let me know.

On that issue, I have what I think could best be described as "mixed emotions."

Much like Internet privacy, everybody wants their absolute but now we see how that same absolute is also the prime enabler of those who conspire to commit mass casualty attacks.

I'm not sure that Obama or anybody else has the "absolute" answer to the problem we're facing and considering the fact that it's extremely hard to get Congress to agree on anything, I think he's doing the best he can given what he has to work with.

"They" won when the Patriot Act was signed into law. "They" win again and again every time anyone is body scanned and zipper line checked at any airport. "THEY" have met their primary directive and, from what I saw on the NBC Nightly News last night..."They" saw what I did: a militarized city, reacting to fear of what "they" may unleash on NYC.

I watch with a saddness and deep sense of loss. We are no longer United.

Yeah. I think the Paris attack has opened a lot of eyes and caused a lot of us to rethink this whole refugee problem, not just here in our country, but all across Europe.

Did you know that Tsarnaev, the Boston bomber, was a ten-year old refugee when he came into this country? Did you know that videos have been found with terrorists "training" small children in the art of hating the west, even training kids as young as five on how to use automatic weapons. Sleeper cells can sit dormant for years, then when the time is ripe, they are activated. They're already here and have been for years.

Did you know that I don't care about any of that? I'm not going to let people tell me to be afraid of Muslims. Especially refugees. Hey, btw, did you know that all the terrorists in Paris have all been linked to being locals and NOT refugees?

He was wrong.

Of course, when things like Paris happen, it makes sense that one would change one's opinion on the matter. Changing an opinion in light of new information is an appropriate thing.
