Most everything he does costs lives, so what’s new? He’s the anti-Midas.

All Americans outside of the U.S. will be in danger of kidnappings. Only a matter of time till they set up shop here in the U.S. as well. But that is what our rulers want is for Americans to be in danger here, there, and everywhere.

The hated, EXEMPT US Congress has done NOTHING
with this continuous treason ... except to arm al Qaeda,
bring murderers into Boston and over the open borders,
and protect corruption even at the DO”J” and IR”S”.

Only a mental midget could think this was a good idea.

Almost all of our actions in the Middle East have been foolish.

The United States does not have the belly for empire.

Nation building does not work with the people in the Middle East. It worked with Japan because they are very different people than the inhabitants in the ME.

Churchill was right, no nation in the ME can govern itself. (except Israel)

Our policy should have been all stick and no carrot...tough love on the level of the nation state.

Hilarious option, which should be taken seriously.

That’s an important point you made. If squishy bureaucrats are going to free terrorists, that encourages troops to polish them off in the field. Otherwise, those bad guys will just be back shooting at the Band of Brothers soon.
