Hindsight is 20/20. And how do we punish citizens of another country when their actions are performed within that country? If their government chooses not to cooperate, what do you suggest--carpet-bombing civilians until we get them?
Too bad. Four Americans were brutally murdered. Means a lot to me.
It could have been avoided. We could have rescued them and punished the aggressors. Now they are emboldened knowing we won't fight back. Hell we'll probably apologize.
