I'd take the chance, show the picture, and toss cruise missiles into the midst of any gathering showing objections to it.
I think this is a clear opportunity for getting rid of more AlQaida types than we ever imagined ~ if they will only turn out and display their sympathies.
What exactly would be the point of this sort of action? I am not asking to be smart or anything. What do you think the ultimate outcome will be? How will this actually change anything for Americans or America in a year or in ten years?
If we kill enough of the AlQaida typs, will that stop the internal moral rot in the US? Will that stop the USSA from ending up on the ash heap of history? Will that make your life better?
I am of the opinion that America is doomed, not because of external threats, but because of Americans and the decisions they make and the attitudes and ideologies they hold.
I think America will head off into that good night and Americans will be beating their chests and boasting about their "rights" all the while voting in tyrants who take their rights away.
I think we could kill an AlQaeda leader a day for the next ten years and it won't affect the fate of the USSA.
Is it just some crack to numb the pain or distract from looking at the fact that half the country or more is the "domestic enemy" of the traditional American ideas of freedom, liberty, free enterprise and small, limited goverment?
Yes, but of course, you are not a chickenshit, like Obama is.
Gates can rot in hell with OBL. He was a key figure in the repeal of DADT. His advice not to release photos of dead OBL goes right along with his lack of character and is sadly no surprise.
