I was hoping that the survivor would be eligible for a "suspended sentence" before his dirt nap but the press is saying he will get no more than life.

Stu, you already do but the liberal posters here decided to give you a suspended sentence instead of a dirt nap......

I'm sure you know that knots is the unit of speed at sea. Nautitical miles is the unit for distance.

This Administration did exactly what you wished.

To top it off, our President thought things out thoroughly and acted accordingly. Unlike your Boy George, acted well, exactly like a boy.

By the way, what have you to say now the captain is safe and sound and the privates dead? I think a simple "Thank You" will suffice.

President Obama had no more to do w/ that rescue than I did! The Navy did exactly what they had to do, and it makes me very proud to be an American!!

He had a lot more to do with it than you are willing to give credit for. After all, he gave the green light for the operation. I am sure if it happened in Boy George's watch, you will be busy cutting and pasting articles days on end.

Obama did nothing of the sort. As I understand it, there is--and always has been--a standing order in the military, written into law, that states they should do whatever is required, including deadly force, as long as it does not violate national or internation law.

The President issued two executive orders and exchanged dozens of commiques, you fucking nitwit. You drink so much Koolaid you even deny this guy when he takes actions that saves the life of an American citizen, you guys have gone completely nuts.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
