Journalist Steven Sotloff has been executed by ISIS. What will the president do with all these be headings? Ugh.

I honestly don't know what the right solution is or what he should do. Its just a messy situation all around. Its the expression, "damned if you do, damned if you don't"

I mean..these journalists KNOW where they are going, and the potential risk..is it fucking horrible, yes! But atrocities happen all over, too frequently...there is no answer that makes sense

:( Once they've got our citizens, I don't know what could be done short of finding the base of this operation and raiding it. Are they not trying to do that? I assume they are and it's a minefield...

But the nature of ISIS is such that we'd only be able to destroy small parts. They'd be replaced and multiplied quickly.

I'm genuinely curious what others feel should be done as well..Once they are captured? And should we limit travel to these places that our civilians get kidnapped?

Maybe he can stop ignoring what is going on and actually listen to some advisors and figure out a game plan. He wanted this job, he has it. It is time to stop campaigning and fucking do his job!

I'm indifferent on Obama, but I'm really bothered by statements like this. Do you really think he is just sitting by idlely? I'm sure the US has a host of plans set in/being set in motion. Do you think the media knows of everything that the government has in the works? Do you think that there aren't any black ops initiatives working on this very matter?

The US does not engage terrorists, but that does not mean we aren't doing anything about it.

He's an idiot. He's probably pissed because this is interfering with his social life.

Fuck no. We are useless when it comes to fighting an immoral insurgency.

What he should be doing, and may be doing, is pressuring the neighboring arab states to handle their fucking business. We give how many billions to saudi in military goods and weapons? Jordan, turkey? Isis is a threat to the royal family, and saudi can and will exterminate them swiftly. They just dont want to right now because they are sunni, and dont want to be seen as supporting the Shia iraq government and Iran (not only shia but persian! Arabs are extremely racist). Sunni saudis dont give a fuck about the beheadings or genocide in iraq. Saudi will hold out until isis is a threat. Turkey and jordan as well. But with boko haram expanding and estabishing a calephate to the west, hezbollah in lebanon, hamas in palestine, they better hurry before they get overrun on all fronts. Too many politics in play here.

we agree here..I do believe there is a lot of politics involved right now

I do think on average, the gov't isn't going to share exactly what they are doing with the public, and then the public, being sheep in a lot of respects to the media believe nothing at all is being done
