Barbaric.

ISIS have released a video of the beheading of US hostage Steven Sotloff.

It is believed the same British man who executed American journalist, James Foley was responsible for the gruesome act.

The Obama White House was caught off-guard by the killing today.

Last Friday, ISIS released the third edition of its glossy message magazineDabiq.

In that magazine, ISIS justified the beheading of James Foley and blamed it on President Obama’s decision to order airstrikes on ISIS positions in Iraq.

Sotloff was reportedly held captive in Syria. Last week President Obama admitted that he has no strategy for dealing with ISIS in Syria.

So, according to a current article in the Atlantic, Mr. Sotloff wrote fairly extensively on the Egypt where, against strong advice he went into the heart of the Muslim Brotherhood encampment, declared them essentially just plain folks, and then took a shot at the liars who were misrepresenting the army takeover as anything but a "coup". Obviously the Egyptian people should have been allowed to starve (if they didn't tow the government line and accept Sharia).

It is horrifying that these people exist, and worse still that this naïve JournaList learned the full depth of their depravity. He was an American and we should have done everything possible to free him and get him back unharmed. That said, one might hope that some of his colleagues might take a hint.

America is led by a fool who loves Islam, Marxism, golf and LGBT. This is a particularly disturbing combination; he is mad.

And so Sotloff dies because Obama refuses to betray his religion* and instead betrays his country by deliberately not seeking victory over Islam.

This is getting serious. If ISIS cuts off a few more American heads, we're gonna have to build some new golf courses before the old ones get worn slap out.

The thing to remember about ISIS is that nothing succeeds like success.

In 1940 there were Nazis all over the friggin' place., Not only in Nazi Germany but in Austria (which had a higher percentage of Nazi Party members than Germany), England, France, Norway, the USA, the USSR, Central and South America.

In 1946 you would have been hard pressed to find a live Nazi out loose anywhere. The reason was simple: we blew the hell out of them. They were defeated totally and completely, in detail and at large, in quantity and quality. 20 years after the war we were laughing at them.

Today, there are losers all over the world being inspired by the ISIS victories. Make it incredibly unhealthy to be associated with ISIS and their popularity will drop markedly.

Poor Sotloff. Another disappointed Obama voter.

"When asked yes or no if President Obama has a strategy for ISIS, Earnest says he's been "hard at work.""

What were the precise words? Did he say "We've been hard at work" or "I've been hard at work"?

If the latter, it means he's about to unveil a paln he thinks is pretty cool.

If the former, it means he's completely out to sea and knows it.

Americans should take comfort knowing that Obama's attorney general Holder will bring the full force
Of our legal system upon the man who cut off the heads of Mr Soloff and Mr Foley.

Does anyone else think he's not going to serve out this term?

He's supposedly going to Europe this week for a NATO summit on Ukraine. I bet he's dreading it like a high school slackoff facing a chem final.

"Does anyone else think he's not going to serve out this term?"

That is a constant fear of mine gnawing at the back of my head, but perhaps not for the job ennui you may be implying.

This...person...is no Slick Willie. Slick was called that for a reason. This...person...likes to get high on his own supply from his own backside. My worry is that he is there to do exactly what he is supposed to do, even if he is not there to do it.

To wit: Should the puppeteers decide it is in the best interest of the decades long Transform America Project, then their hands will be withdrawn posthaste from his holy posterior, thus allowing the puppet to flop helplessly to the floor and immediately cause all his Patient Zero followers in every city they are concentrated in to go caveman.
