    Give in, dont give in?


  2. I say give in. One American is worth a hundred of them. (just like the way Israel trades with the terrorists)

  3. I don't agree with giving in to "terrorist" demands, but I say we let the women go in this case. We shouldn't have kidnapped er.. detained them in the first place.

    You're right. But we only "detain" them, the terrorists have a tendency to behead them on National tv.

  5. Yeah you're right. But the chainsaw?

  6. Giving into terrorist demands sets a terrible precedent that will only result in MORE kidnappings/beheadings in the future. If they think kidnapping innocent civilians is a bargaining tool with a civilized nation they are wrong. I can't wait until these sickos are wiped from the planet.

    It's not that simple in this case. We did the same thing to them(kidnapped their wives. As delta pointed out, the only difference is that we won't behead them. But on the other hand you're right, it does set a precedent. This is a tough one.

  8. As a general rule, I do not support dealing with terrorists at all. There are exceptions to every case, but most of the time refusal to deal is the way to go. Having a top knotch sniper team available is always a plus.
    I don't think we should have taken their wives, but hey, they would take ours if given the chance. War was so much more rewarding back in the day. Your army lined up on this side, ours lined up on the other side, somebody yelled, and it was Katie bar the door til the last man standing.

    i dont think thats a good idea, but at the same thim if it was a loved one of mine, i might cchange my mind, you really cant say what yyou would do unless you were unfortunate enough to be in that situation. to give in to me, shows weakness and only more bad can come out of that.

  10. Every time they harm even a hair of an Americans head,...... level a city. Sunni triangle should have been leveled long ago. We need to fight wars like, well, wars. Remember WWII? We carpet bombed citys, civilians and all. $0.02

    Yeah I'm pretty sure I heard that almost exactly the same statement on his show tonight!

    I most defintely agree with it. Japan was practically a wasteland by the end of WWII, but we had do what was neccesary for victory. Sadly I don't think our government today is capable of doing what we have to do to win this fight.

    IMO, we need less "democracy spreading" and more B2 sorties.

    no **** right. its as if the american public thinks wars arent supposed to be bad or something. i think we should stop ****ing around and start killing bodies.

  14. i take from swordfish:

    Anyone who impinges on America's freedom. Terrorist states, Stanley. Someone must bring their war to them. They bomb a church, we bomb 10. They hijack a plane, we take out an airport. They execute American tourist, we tactically nuke an entire city. Our job is to make terrorism so horrific that is becomes unthinkable to attack Americans.

    Rediculous? Maybe in practical application, but theoretically right to the point! It is almost imperative to fight this kind of enemy using the language that they understand and consequences they can experience, which send them the clear message that a cost/benefit analysis of their terrorist action indicates clearly that the costs (to them) outweigh the benefits.

    The clear message, as well, must remain that there are no negotiations with terrorists.

  16. and for the record, i say don't give in. i'm 110% sure my opinion would be different if someone i knew was held captive, but that would be an emotional response. the fact is if we make them aware of our weakness when it comes to pulling out all the stops for rescuing american women, that's all they will concentrate on from here on out. it's a tough call either way, but that's what i'd do. war is dirty. if they decide to play dirtier and execute the american woman, we should execute every one of theirs that we have. this politically correct war is what's ****ing us up. all the politicians are worried about winning their next election, and not thinking about how to win a war.

  17. The clever combatant imposes his will on the enemy, but does not allow the enemy's will to be imposed on him.

    This is a necessary step, I as a leader would do it out of respect for the lives of the volunteer soldiers who make a great sacrafice for us. I say "Kill 'em all" just like Metallica's first album and no, I'm not psycho, we're dealing with psycopaths here and the only way to handle them is by extremely brutal force

  19. Well since noone else has said it yet....

    Chuck Norris doesn't negotiate with terrorists, terrorists negotiate with Chuck norris.

  20. All this move did was prove that we're no better than the terrorists, the same savage *******s who take us hostage and torture soldiers and civilians.Oh wait, we have those secret CIA torture prisons in Eastern Europe.

    Pretty shameful on the US's part but the Administration is full of bull**** like this so its not surprising.

    I'm like a broken record with these, but here they are again.

    1) "Darkness can not remove darkness, only light can remove darkness. Hate can not remove hate, only love can remove hate." MLK jr.


    2) If we never supported Israel, the terrorist wouldn't hate us.


    BTW, what heartless, souless ass whole voted for choice #3

  22. yeah yeah, maybe we can all hold hands and sing 'kumbaya'.

    1) There will never be peace without victory of one side. Compromise will never occur with radical islamists.

    2) So we shouldn't support nations with similar values and government to our own? We should have sided with the sickos in Palestine who now blow themselves up in crowded areas with the intent of murdering as many innocent men, women, and children as possible? Should we take sides with Iran now, they also hate us because we support Israel?

    You don't stop doing the right thing just because the terrorists "wouldn't hate us." You don't condone, or look the other way when someone preaches genocide. You annihilate evil and show the rest of the world that such behavior is completely unacceptable and will be dealt with.
