“It's Time to Defeat Terrorism ”

Thanks to the Jihadist in Chief Obama, the Jihadist are going forward and killing innocent people all over the Middle east based on the reward that they will get in heaven based on their barbaric ideology of the 7th century. Obviously, millions of Israeli children are running to shelters and staying there hours crying under the all out Jihad war and hundreds of deadly missiles made by Iran that the Hamas Jihadist Mozlem Brother terrorists are using in effort to kill as many Jewish children and women based on their poisonous ideology of death while being finances and supported by the Jihadist sympathizer Obama and the liberal Jews of America. The liberal fascistic media of the NY Times, CNN, ABC and others is loyal to the Iranian regime sponsored Jihadists and the Obama-Khumenie conspiracy against Israel that seek the destruction of Israel and new holocaust of the Jews. Israel will never surrender to the Jihadist Mozlem Brother as Obama may wish and it will defeat the Jihadist for once and for all.

these people have been killing each other for thousands of years. it's time they figured it out for themselves and leave the u.s. out of it. they allowed hamas and all the other extremist factions to rise to power, now let them get rid of them. why should the u.s. lose any more than it already has because of these groups, whether it be resources or troops.

Remind me again why the Nobel Peace Prize committee gave Obama the award? Wasn't if for his efforts towards world peace, particularly in the middle east?

Odummy is an amateur and the results are as expected.

Muslims being financed by "Obama and the liberal Jews of America"? You're way over the deep end. You're completely nuts. Take your Thorazine.

If they would only kill themselves "over there", I could see your point but they want to us "over here" and that is when it becomes a problem. Obama is Quitting GWOT but AQ did not get the memo and why should they. They think they are winning and Obama has done nothing to make them think differently.

The worst case of a Nobel Peace Prize, was given to the terrorist Israeli Irgun leader Menachem Begin who blew up the King David Hotel, and who deserted the Polish army which was fighting Nazi Germany.

We must not forget, that Jews bought terrorism to the Middle East, with the Irgun.

Really! What bubble are you living in? Quitting GWOT, southern border wide open, how safe are we? At least the last administration realized we were at war.

2009

.June 1, Little Rock, Arkansas: Abdulhakim Muhammed, a Muslim convert from Memphis, Tennessee, is charged with shooting two soldiers outside a military recruiting center. One is killed and the other is wounded. In a January 2010 letter to the judge hearing his case, Muhammed asked to change his plea from not guilty to guilty, claimed ties to al-Qaeda, and called the shooting a jihadi attack "to fight those who wage war on Islam and Muslims.

2009 November 5: Fort Hood Shooting: Nidal Malik Hasan, a US Army Major serving as a Psychiatrist, opens fire at Fort Hood, Texas, killing 13 and wounding 29. On August 23, 2013 Hasan was convicted by a Military tribunal. Hasan acted as his own attorney and took responsibility for the attack saying his motive was jihad to fight “illegal and immoral aggression against Muslims”.[

"Dec. 25: A Nigerian man on a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit attempted to ignite an explosive device hidden in his underwear. The explosive device that failed to detonate was a mixture of powder and liquid that did not alert security personnel in the airport. The alleged bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, told officials later that he was directed by the terrorist group Al Qaeda. The suspect was already on the government's watch list when he attempted the bombing; his father, a respected Nigerian banker, had told the U.S. government that he was worried about his son's increased extremism.

2010
May 1, New York City: a car bomb is discovered in Times Square, New York City after smoke is seen coming from a vehicle. The bomb was ignited, but failed to detonate and was disarmed before it could cause any harm. Times Square was evacuated as a safety precaution. Faisal Shahzad pleads guilty to placing the bomb as well as 10 terrorism and weapons charges.
May 10, Jacksonville, Florida: a pipe bomb explodes while approximately 60 Muslims are praying in the mosque. The attack causes no injuries
.Oct. 29: two packages are found on separate cargo planes. Each package contains a bomb consisting of 300 to 400 grams (11-14 oz) of plastic explosives and a detonating mechanism. The bombs are discovered as a result of intelligence received from Saudi Arabia's security chief. The packages, bound from Yemen to the United States, are discovered at en route stop-overs, one in England and one in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

2011
Jan. 17, Spokane, Washington: a pipe bomb is discovered along the route of the Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial march. The bomb, a "viable device" set up to spray marchers with shrapnel and to cause multiple casualties, is defused without any injuries.

2012
Sept. 11, Benghazi, Libya: militants armed with antiaircraft weapons and rocket-propelled grenades fire upon the American consulate, killing U.S. ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other embassy officials. U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton said the U.S. believed that Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, a group closely linked to Al Qaeda, orchestrated the attack.

2013
Feb. 1, Ankara, Turkey: Ecevit Sanli detonates a bomb near a gate at the U.S. Embassy. Sanli dies after detonating the bomb.

April 15, Boston, Mass.: multiple bombs explode near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Two bombs go off around 2:50 in the afternoon as runners finish the race. Three people are killed. One is an eight year old boy. More than 260 people are injured.

2013 December 13 Terry Lee Loewen, an avionics technician, was arrested for attempting to bomb the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport. A Muslim-convert inspired by Anwar Al-Awlaki, he is alleged to have spent several months planning a suicide attack with a car-load of explosives

my point is that we shouldn't be "over there" in the first place. it's time they solved their own problems. they've had these problems long enough.

Other than a never ending occupation of the Middle East by western (US) forces, untenably expensive in lives, money & US credibility worldwide, what do you see as the answer to what is really a huge problem? IMO, All the people saying to leave the jihadists to the jihadists don't realize just what letting these people foment their own country or "caliphate" will allow them to do in terms of killing Americans worldwide, and ideally to them, on American soil. Your thoughts?

I am guessing you forgot 9/11? We have their will and what they are willing to do for their cause, WE (American society) Don't have that will. H*ll, we won't demonize our enemy any more.

A good start would be to exploit our own domestic energy sources so we can stop funding those as*sholes with every gallon of gas we buy.

We had them beat but Obama has dropped the ball a few times and announced quitting GWOT. We were at the point where we could pick and chose our battles. Afghanistan should had stayed a special operations war. We could had stayed for 25 years and no one would had known or cared. Losing 4 or 5 special operators a year over there would had been nothing. We lose that many in training accidents.(I retired as one after 22 years)
Almost all the other places we can park an aircraft carrier off the coast, send in some special operators, drones, missiles etc no more then a brigade size element, kill some bad guys, pick up a finger to ID them, then leave. We could had done that for decades, no fixed bases, no land supply routes. We could use our strength and technology to kill them and protect our own.
Just because we are leaving, don't think for a minute they are going to quit. They think they are winning.

I didn't forget 9/11 at all. We don't have their will because we are defenders, not offenders and I absolutely agree with you regarding energy sources. Long ago, we should have been independent of oil and it's foreign producers.

Religious nutters are the cause for the violence.

Bigots are also reeking havoc on the world.

The world would be a much better place without these two groups.

But the problem is, in order to rid the world of these scum, level headed people have to stoop to the scummy level of both groups.

So unfortunately we, the sane, have to endure the crap that these groups dole out.

It sucks.
