Well the ship has returned from Kenya. Yet it still lacks its captain. Again it is proven beyond a reasonable doubt that trying to negotiate with those, who embrace the method of terrorism, only reiterates the terrorists demands, and results in the lack of final and meaningful results for the family's of the victims of terror, and the victims themselves. Obama has proven once again that he lacks the essential skills required to respond to a high tension international crisis. He has demonstrated an absolute disregard for the citizens of this county, and a cowardice Which is truly horrifying, more than it is alarming. our country is in need of true leadership, and if The captain of that vessel perishes, then the blood Shall be on Obama's hands. This lack of leadership is serving only to embolden over enemies and, to place the American people in even greater danger than we had been in before. I must say this is more than upsetting, it is truly quite alarming. If we continue at this rate, there's no telling where these thugs will stop. If there is one lesson from history it-would do us all well to learn, it's that from the time of Rome through the period just before the Second World War appeasement never ever
works. In other words appeasement did not work then, it will not work today, it will not work 10,000 years from now. Why these Politicians cannot stem to understand this batters me. This is one of the clearest lessons history hands down to us. I truly wonder if our leaders ever seriously studied history. Sadly, I am coming to the conclusion that they have not. Which is truly sad. As long as our leaders think that appeasement is a viable solution to terrorism and barbarism then innocent lives will continue to Be lost, or at least terrorized, while our leaders attempt to pander to these forces which are the antithesis to our way of life. This captain should have come home with that ship instead his family is left in the dark while our leadership plays a deadly game of "'let's play Dr. Phil" on the geo-political sphere, and send the wrong message that America is weak and that she will not properly respond to these acts of barbarism and war.
