ISIS. What would Jefferson do?


U.S. hostage Kayla Mueller had her fingernails pulled out before being repeatedly raped by ISIS leader:

In March 1785, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to London to negotiate with Tripoli's envoy, ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman (or Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja). When they enquired "concerning the ground of the pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury", the ambassador replied:

It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy's ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once.[wiki]

Although Congress never voted on a formal declaration of war, they did authorize the President to do what had to be done.  And he did.  Because it's the President's duty.

The Islamic States (Barack Obama's gift to the World)  have declared war on the entire non-muslum world.   It ought be open season on them.

May I suggest an excellent book on what Jefferson later did as President. Entitled 'The Pirate Coast', subtitled 'Thomas Jefferson, the First Marines, and the Secret Mission of 1805', by Richard Zacks. An insightful read that describes how these savages have NOT changed in their treatment of non-Muslims in general, and Americans in particular, for centuries.

I can only imagine that this young girl, maybe having only the briefest hint that American warplanes were on a bombing run, prayed for a quick end to the madness.

Anon 9:02 here again;
It's been 'gloriously' pointed out by those few Muslims in our Government, at their swearing-in ceremony, that Jefferson had a copy of the Koran in his library. In fact, I think one of them may have used that exact copy. What they are probably too ignorant to know is that Jefferson reportedly obtained the book to study the ways of his enemy. As he did not have a vast expanse of State department personnel to call upon, he had to make do with the Koran. And, face it, to understand these people, it only takes reading ONE book.

My only hope (well, actually one of many), is that Hillarys statement " We came, We saw, He died", regarding Muammar Gaddafi, will come back to haunt her.

The vermin who did this continue to enjoy the spoils of war with little fear of retribution. I am at least grateful her suffering is over as the one did nothing for her or any other captives. Why do we even try to placate these scum? The only thing they understand is death and my motto is give em what they want!

Roger, I chuckled when I saw the graphic of 'The One' up in the right corner of this piece. Because next to him you show the name of his religion with a small 'i'. And that's how I now pronounce it. Just as in yesterday's Apple show, where they announced their new iPhones and iPads, we now have the religion of iSlam. EYE-SLAM. And, isn't that what they're doing to every other religion, every other culture on the face of GODs earth?

Oh, and among close friends I refer to their profit as MO-MAD-HAM. Take THAT...

Nuclear annihilation is way too good for them; they wouldn't burn nearly hot enough or long enough.

And waiting for the "moderate" Muslims to exercise some influence over their "radical" brethren is like waiting for "moderate" cancer cells to stop their aggressive brother cells from metastasizing.

Those of you who are old enough to remember the legal wranglings in the 1960's involving books like Lady Chatterly's Lover and Fanny Hill will know where I got the inspiration for the following statement and what it means:

There is no socially redeeming value in Islam.

The tragedy of the Iran-Iraq war during the 1980s is that it was over too soon. We should have keep it going hot but contained for another 50 years.
