Agreed. Why is it that everytime we have to send in the rescue mission its for some bunch of misguided missionaries handing out bibles. I’m all for spreading the word but how about to somebody who might be interested? Somalia? I don’t think so. Well those poor folks will have months if not years to sit and try to convert the Muslim pirates who have just captured them. It will be interesting to see how that turns out.
The muslim barbarians have most-likely strapped IEDs to their hostages. This will end badly.
And your point is.....?
Make that four American hostages distributing Bibles in the Muslim world and you might have a reaon for presidential inaction.
They were not proselytizing and they were not in Samalian waters. This culture of pirates needs to be destroyed. They are a threat to shipping in the entire Indian ocean.
They were just taking a pleasure trip. They had a few Bibles, which were to be given to Christian churches in Africa, where Bibles and church supplies are hard to get.
They were not “distributing Bibles in the Muslim world” and had nothing to do with Muslims at all. They were seized while sailing in international waters, which is where the Somali pirates capture virtually all of their victims.
This should not be allowed to happen to any American or anybody at all, for that matter, and there is no excuse for Bambi’s inaction.
We have come a long way from "Pedicuris alive or Rasuli dead".
Obama would be able to utter a line like that only if Van Jones were kidnapped by Tea Partiers in Georgia...
I come from the Goldwater,VonMises, Buckley school pilgrim.
Be glad to compare pedigrees
That would be interesting but perhaps not productive. I come from the CORE founding at Yellow Springs and SDS in Boston. Saw the light in 85 and followed Horowitz and Limbaugh out of the madness.
