    And we allow these animals to live because......????

    As I was listening to NPR the other day, they were interviewing an Iraqi ethnic Arab who fled Mosul. Even HE said (albeit translated into English) that these ISIS guys are like from a movie, ie long hair & long beards and they have NO RED LINE....that is to say, there is NOTHING they won't do...they have ZERO qualms about hurting and/or killing absolutely anyone.

    I'm thinking it is time to rid the planet of them.

    I just saw this reported on Fox and this is horrible. They were also saying if Obama doesn't stop bombing in Iraq they will cut the head off another journalist.

    But it is a peaceful religion...

    But who is ISIS? Are they the "rebels" in Syria that we armed against al-Assad?

    Looked to me like the guy offered himself up as a sacrifice and got what he asked for.

    Agreed. If I'm going to be beheaded I'm not reading their political propaganda demeaning my family and my country.

    It's a great way to get countries on the fence to side with your enemies. They stopped beheading people online, in about 2007, because of the negative worldwide reaction.

    I wonder what our rules of engagement will be against these folks, should troops be sent back in in the tens of thousands.

    Most likely. Washington has been funding and arming Jihadis since the Afghan Soviet war.

    They make excellent regime change proxy fighters. ("we" don't have to send our troops in to do the dirty work, plausible deniability and all that) "ISIS" aka "Al Qaeda" aka the "Libyan rebels" aka the "Syrian rebels" didn't just appear overnight.

    Problem is they get out of control but then on the bright side from Washington's perspective anyway they can then be used to scare us into giving up our rights and rushing into more war.

    The Jihadis are about the most useful tool in the globalist's tool box. This "beheading" is right on cue. Want to get Americans to go along with another long drawn out bloody expensive war we can't afford and don't need after more than a decade of epic failures? Behead someone, or make it appear that someone has been beheaded and once again we're off to "make the world safe for democracy".

    HOOAH!

    We've all read this script before. Let's not think let's just do! HOOAH!

    Don't shoot until they bring blood or you're dead, whichever comes first.

    I have no clue where my mom gets her news from (so I tend to take it with a grain of salt), but she told me this morning that members of ISIS made it to the U.S. now. Is this true? Did a Google search and can't find anything about it.

    could be, or at the very least their sympathizers, since some idiot in New Jersey did fly an ISIS flag and then went, "duh, I didn't even know it was an ISIS flag" or something like that.

    I'm all for protecting the borders but the truth is you can't protect any country from its own homegrown terrorists,psychos, and just plain nut cases, which this country seems to have an abundance of.

    I have not endured what he had been through, so I won't judge the victim. We don't know, but perhaps they told him they would spare him if he read their script. Or maybe he suffered from Stockholm Syndrome. Who knows. I won't blame the victim. The ISIS maniacs did this. They must pay a price. I am a very non-violent person, but sometimes I think the only way to end this once and for all is to bring the wrath and full firepower of the US military down on them. Sadly, that is very indiscriminate in who is hit. That fact is the only thing that makes me second guess that option.

    If you read the reports coming out of Washington and the corporate sponsored think tanks, you and I and everyone else here are guilty of being homegrown terrorists. Until we're proven innocent at our own expense.

    Returning veterans are at the top of the list.

    Al Qaeda, ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, etc., etc are hardly ever mentioned in them.

    Washington only see's Islamic terrorism as a threat when it wants to take more of our rights away or start and/or prolong a foreign war.

    The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in “rightwing extremist activity,” saying the economic recession, the election of America's first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias.

    A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines “rightwing extremism in the United States” as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.

    “It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration,” the warning says.

    Here's the MIAC report . . . http://www.constitution.org/abus/le/miac-strategic-report.pdf

    Get em while they're young!

    The DHS is even training the Boy Scouts how to "subdue" all those disgruntled veterans.

    We can't continue to fight them by proxy. If we feel this is a national threat, let's declare war on them.

    I'm with you on the collateral damage. The fact that our actions have enabled this group is no help. But we will have to decide sometime, if we want to get involved. I just hope this time it's done the way it's supposed to be, and we don't see people saying different things, come election results.

    I'm all for going to get them as long as that is all we do. No nation building. No governance coaching. Simply close with the enemy and destroy them in close combat. We had a responsibility in 2003 to fix what we broke but I don't see any such responsibility in this case. I'm as non-violent as it gets but if you have seen the documentaries on their philosophy and their world view you would know that there is simply no negotiating with them. They honestly believe that they are in the right. There is no convincing them otherwise.
