Senator John McCain and the remaining tough minded aggressive members of the Republican Party are up in arms at “failure” of President Barack Obama to bomb the hell out of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria(ISIS). For McCain and his cohorts in verbal violence, we AMERICANS will not tolerate the murder of our citizens! Sorry, fellas, that is reality. A Special Force raid in Syria attempted to rescue James Foley, killed some ISIS soldiers, but never found him. That is about all we can do at this stage of what is transpiring in Iraq. It is terrible to see visual images of an American being beheaded. During World War II, the Japanese Army so enjoyed sharing their beheading of downed US pilots. It took some time, but thousands of innocent, as well as guilty, Japanese died, including by atomic bombs. Such is war.
Our hearts can go out to James Foley and other hostages, but, at this moment in time, nothing can be done to save their lives. One wonders where were these opponents of allowing Americans to die in 2003 when George Bush invaded Iraq in search of non-existent weapons of mass destruction? The Americans who died sure would have welcomed John McCain fighting to protect their lives ten years ago!
