    France is doing right, and if Britain joins in for support, with others that may follow, the response should have good chance of success. obama staying out (it is obama, not the will of people of USA) his lack of support will be obvious to all that he is supporting islamic terrorism. obam’s lack of support of the USA, with his stealing of funds from USA with his $18+trill in debt, bad budgeting to cause low military upkeep, is treason against the USA in time of war. obama needs immediate impeachment to stop his daily attacks on USA.

    The “war” against islime, which our government denies we are fighting, will never be won by military force alone, though force is a necessary ingredient of that victory. When fighting an ideology, they only way to destroy it permanently is to eradicate the ideology or eradicate its followers, or both.

    The wimpy ass terrorist obama will not do anything to destroy his terrorist cohorts. He is the lowest form of a man and president we have ever had. He is a traitor and commits treason and our Congress has had 7 years to stop him and they refuse to do so. 99% of them need to be voted out the next time they seek office.
