With the lunatic lefties they were screwed no matter what they did, save the seal and be branded interfering in the whales food cycle, throw the seal to the whales and be branded seal haters and interfering in the food cycle. You can always count on the left to say something completely idiotic.

Better yet “Why are we still here?” (in reference to US troops in harms way)
Snow : Because Afghanistan was Obama's ' right war ' unlike Bush's ' not right war ? '
Do not worry, our troops have hus(in)sains rules of engagement. We want our enemies to live and like us, our troops a different question!
barber2 beat me to it. this was why we rushed to evacuate iraq after obama declared his job done. leaving the vaccuum now filled by isis. good job obama/clinton, hope and change
Obama Ovomit is waiting for our small groups to be caught and completely surrounded by Taliban and ISIS at that same time. Then he will be happy.
Funny, people crap on Obama'said withdrawall of Iraq , forgetting the withdraw dates were already agreed upon. Now should we have left a force in Iraq.....thats debatable, but the original since that's far greater than that was the Invasion itself.
Personally I would not have stayed in Iraq unless the central goverment agred to divided itself into 3 separate states....one for Kurds, Shia, and Sunnies.
ironically named libsnobetter: it was a democrat perverse obsession with setting a withdrawal date regardless of reality on the ground. reality bites as they say. its 2016 ace, google the criticism of obamas iraq withdrawl aND see what warnings were given and ignored. its like nostradamus tried to tell obama but as in all things his smugness doesnt allow dissenting thoughts.

University of Kabul under attack – headline news
Turkey invades Syria to strike back at the ISIS and Kurdish controlled areas, silence across the board.
The first, is Islamic Sharia terrorists on the offensive against an US-allied government and system, while the second is Islamic on Islamic Sharia Psychotic terrorists, and thus, to the left, not worthy of being mentioned.
Snow, don’t forget Uncle Joey Biden is in Turkey to try and reset relations strained by the fallout from last month’s failed coup attempt. Turks felt they did not get a clear message of support from Washington so Mr Biden is doing everything he can to send one – including deliberate comparisons to the trauma Americans suffered after the 9/11 attacks.
The Turkish government is also upset by America’s alliance with Kurds in northern Syria. It believes they are linked to Turkish Kurds who are battling Ankara. The US finds the Syrian Kurds an effective force against Islamic State militants but the Turks fear the alliance is helping them gain territory for an autonomous zone along the Turkish border.
A US official travelling with Mr Biden admitted that some Kurdish fighters had pushed further north than they should have and said Turkey’s offensive on IS in Jarablus was probably partly to create a buffer zone against any further Kurdish advance.
But he said the US had “put a lid” on any more such moves, creating a breathing space for the Jarablus operation, which the US supports and to which it is ready to contribute, or just look like buffoons like an average day thanks to Odumbio.
What conspiracy are proposing exists? In both cases Islam is the perpetrator. In fact, in the second case (Turkey fighting back) Islam looks pretty good for helping to combat Islamic extremism.
I don't see how the trope of "The left protects the image of Muslims" is at play here... Please elaborate.
Well....TB reported on Assad still having chemical weapons. Sometimes you have pull some threads together. Is this a warning to Turkey? And what does Putin have to say about all this? Assad is essentially his puppet now.
Kabul could be distraction.

Yes, outstanding, and proof that, while a few (very few) officers may have crossed the line and gone rogue, the vast majority of them are good at heart and in deed.
 August 24, 2016 at 11:41am
Beyond stupid; it is utter proof of what happens when you let emotions without restraint of logic, discipline, or the like, loose and enact upon them.
 August 24, 2016 at 11:35am
Indeed, and it is the policies of the Socialist Democrats that led to the rioting, along with their directions, funding, and demagoguery.
Liberalism is a perversion, a character trait, and genuine insanity bent on devastation and death.
Liberals only understand destruction.
She didn't think they'd do something like that to her.
You must realize, woman, that rats will eat their own.
And if, like you, someone puts in any effort to make their own life better, the rats will eat those first.
I don't think liberals even understand that. Liberalism is a mental deficiency.

Never having had children, I will not even begin to imagine what grief she is feeling; may justice come down hard on the dealer, if it has not already, and may the mother find some solace in her grand-children, and in the good memories of her little girl.
 August 24, 2016 at 9:39am
The drug dealers know its poison, they do not care.
Thus drug dealers are akin to the Socialist Democrats and ISIS, death is their constant companion, and method of operation.
Riiight, democrats are just like drug dealers. Ironically selling drugs is a purely capitalist behavior. You don't think very much before posting do you?
Drug dealers ARE democrats.
 August 24, 2016 at 9:36am
Absolutely; shows someone has a good sense of humor, and sense of sardonic humor at that.
 August 24, 2016 at 9:35am
Good one indeed.
Looks like Turkish armed forces are launching an offensive against ISIS and the Kurds, in Syrian territory. Anyone suspect this is being done as military adventurism to distract the masses as their leader implements harsher Sharia compliant laws?
They have been clearing the town on the Turkey border for 2-3 days, I posted a link last night. It's the start of WW3 and RT news is about the only one covering it.
I'll put the link up again. Trolls seem to not like that.
Sure more sites have covered it by now too.
That coup attempt gave Edragon license to become yet another Muslim Brotherhood, ME dictator hostile to the West. At least we have truly professional people like John (I served in Vietnam) Kerry and Obama on the case...or we would be truly screwed.
"Truth to a Liberal is as Salt to a Slug"
Many folks don't know the history of Turkey's government. Ataturk in his wisdom established Turkey's government as a secular government excluding islam. What is happening now is the muslims are trying to undo this important work similarly as they did with the Iatola in Iran. The results will be the same both countries flourished without muslims running the show and as Iran went backwards centuries with regard to human rights Turkey will too.

Probably; and yet, this absolute corruption leads me to wonder if people have become so benumbed to such happening, expecting it to happen, they just no longer care and/or feel ‘what can we, the little guys, do to stop it?”
 August 23, 2016 at 10:08am
Yes, and yet, was the pickle jar already partly opened for her?
Is he a doctor? I guess that is what we will get when she continues the ACA that Obama started. Patient: Doc, I just don't feel good. To patient: here is a pickle jar. If you can open it, you just need to take two aspirin and call me in the morning.
That would depend on the definition of open, along with her intent, and whether there was a video, and whether there would be any additional benefit in ratings by telling a whopper....I'm sure I've missed some other astute observationsLOL
 August 23, 2016 at 10:07am
Indeed, yet it will never happen.
 August 23, 2016 at 10:06am
Yes, and the left will make the claim the two white people were responsible for the attack, and had motivated and encouraged the other five to follow their example.
So, fellow Blazers, how will the left spin this one into a hate-crime conducted by hate-filled Christian Conservative Tea-Party domestic-terrorists?
No. And even if it everything was released tomorrow it would not convince those committed to the progressive left’s ideology and agenda. They know who she is and what she’s done but care more about what she will do to finish off America.
Drip, drip, drip, drip.......
 August 22, 2016 at 10:07pm
She could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue, shoot someone, and get away with it, even if she did it on live television.
Yep. Multi cultural brought evil in. No one wants either of the clowns except for their families and worshippers.
It looks pretty sad that we have people who we wouldn’t urinate on if they were on fire…as our supposed leaders.
Snow- For you to equate ones distain for Trump, and not voting for him, to hating our country absolutely disgusts me. It's because of my deep-seated love for America that I refuse to vote for him or Hillary.
As I said, I love my country. I served it (USAF 73-79). When I see 'Old Glory' being raised and hear the National Anthem I swell with pride. For you to say to those of us that will not vote for Trump that we hate this country is not only disgusting, but it's outright disgraceful.
In the past, I've voted for three candidates, RINO's all: Dole, McCain and Romney and held my nose. I refuse to do that this time. Trump and Hillary are interchangeable, both progressive democrats. Trump comes out and says the things that disgruntled voters want to hear. If I had a billion dollars, I could be where he's at today, the only difference is I would mean the things I said. I am, in my humble opinion, a true and strict Constitutional Conservative. Yes, my man lost the primary, but even had he not said it at the convention, I would have voted my conscience, which is to not vote for Trump or Hillary.
Thank you for your service.
I understand your patriotism and pride for our great country. My dad served in the 101 and 82 airborne.
I remember my dad helping in Goldwater's campaign.
I'm sorry it's come down to this, but there is still a fight (election) coming. There's only two candidates with a realistic chance to win.
The big difference between Dloe, McCain, Romney and Trump is the former were politicians, in fact two were very long term politicians.
Potentially the biggest risk in this election could be to our Constitution with 2 - 3 Supreme Court nominees. As much as I may disagree or dislike Trump, I believe our Constitution has a better chance of surviving with Trump than with Hillary.
We don't always get to choose our reality, but we have to deal with it.
Neighbor2- Thank you for your response. It was greatly appreciated. This election is the hardest we've ever had in my voting life time.
As much as I dislike Mr. Trump, I find myself liking Governor Pence more and more. My vote would probably be for him.
Still can't believe I got two thumbs down. I figured the Mrs. would have canceled out one. Lol
