Nobody on the plane, and they missed their target twice. There are options that can take place, ranging from diplomatic to military. At least that's what I read in the article.

Only time will tell. I hope whatever option is chosen, that it works the way it was intended. I have seen that the diplomatic option usually doesn't work. Aside from going into another all out war, I hope he decides to send some military force to let them know we're not playing with them.

Wow murral that's sure doesn't sound like a typical liberal point of view.

I was chastised a while back when I posted my true feelings on how we should handle the ME. It was too extreme and barbaric for all of the tough guys here. Talk tough, but when someone says what needs to be done, they get all wishy washy with shock. I have lots of views that may surprise you, but because some people can't handle the heat, I keep them to myself.:cool:

perhaps we should have an F18 shadowing the drones for a while. Might be nice to splash a couple of Iranians :snipersmile:.

...and one day after he wins the election he is running off to sign this UN arms treaty. Better call your senators and tell them not to ratify this when it comes up for a vote.

Tell us Cyndi, what do you {or Fox News}think should be our response?
Bush started two wars on two fronts with no provocation or aggressive acts towards us.
There is some aggression in this situation, so I would think we ought to start WW3 over this
I'm sure you agree with me {or Haliburton and the military industrial complex} that Bush's Cowboy Diplomacy was extremely effective

I think it would be much more interesting to hear what YOU think should be done. What you think our options are, and what response each would elicit.

That is not the way she rolls.

It is far easier to criticize others than to take the risk of sharing something of your own.:cool:

Its your Pres who will walk away and do nothing just like he did in Libya why do you think this news didnt come out until after he election. . He wouldn't stop sending money to them after killing our people why would he care about this. I think the U.S. should stop being a doormat. If you wonder what fox news or cnn thinks email them.

Just use the ignore function if she's that much of an irritant. Kinda reminds me of a female Roger Perry.

Im 1000's of miles away and have no inside intelligence as to the facts of the case.
I would trust that our military & intelligence resources in place would be in a far better position to define our response than I or any other civillian on a POTUS forum could.

From the little Ive heard of this there is some confusion as to the location of the attack relative to the border of territorial air space.
If in fact our drone was attacked while it was in allowable air space I would hope our response would be emphatic enough to let them know if you mess with the bull youll get the horn; and deter any further aggressive type activities on their part

Very funny coming from you, but typical of your hypocrisy; In light of the fact that You are the one who has been called out frequently for your penchant to attempt to change the subject or otherwise avoid a pointed question.

To show you that "that IS the way she rolls" I will refer you to post 113 in the Bhengazi security thread.
You had asked me a question and said there was no way I could answer it because either answer would be an embarrasment to my side.

You were wrong on more than one level there. First I did answer your questions Additionally your premise that however I answered would be an embarrasment to my side was wrong. I felt no embarrassment

apparently you wrongly assumed that "my side" was a political party or candidate. Apparently your side is a political party; whereas my side is the USA and what is best for the country: not whats best for any political party.

I firmly believe that we need to hold our elected officials feet to the fire and strongly punish wrongdoings regardless of anything. Unpunished Official misconduct begets more misconduct.

Once again I answered the questions you said I wouldn't. That is the way you have an intelligent adult, productive political discourse, Both parties ask and answer each others questions. In many cases both parties can learn & benefit

In this case I have no return question for you, because on this subject matter I don't think anybody on here has enough info to give a relevant response

However there are still questions you left unanswered in post #113 in the other thread. If you wanna jump in the deep end of the pool and play, then Id be interested in your answers.

If not then make sure your water wings dont chafe your underarms


just sayin......

I must be missing something :confused:. That's Franco's line, usually after he has avoided the meat of someone's post. Are you Franco or someone else? Guy or girl, & where do you abide?

Curious folks want to know :).
