Beheadings

Lately on the news there have been two beheadings. And I would argue that the way our media has ran the stories is exactly what these horrible people who have perpetrated the act wanted. I believe they could have told us the story without showing us so much of the act. I have a lot of opinions on the media lately and they are just one outlet to blame for this. I do have a bigger bone to pick. Since when do we the United States of America let this happen? Two of our citizens beheaded in the last two weeks. I think it shows weak and poor leadership that we let this happen. Never before do we let Americans just get beheaded without some kind of reaction at all. I heard a joke yesterday that literally turned my stomach….
Did you hear Obamas reaction to the news?

He be heading to the golf course… then my 17 year old son laughed.

I can’t believe it. I am disappointed that we aren’t more furious. That we haven’t struck back in some fashion. That we seem to have no plan. I want justice. I don’t believe in might makes right but I do believe as a nation we do have some responsibility and we could argue exactly what that is and where to draw the line but I really don’t believe we are anywhere close right now. And if this was back awhile and we didn’t step in.. we would all be talking German.

I realize there is a lot that the government knows that I am not privy to. And I do believe that is how it should be. However, if I were Obama right now.. I think I would be listening to some of Ronald Reagans speeches for some ideas.
“Mr Gorbachev tear down that wall!!!”
There was no mistaking what he meant to say and he said it with authority.
We need some authority. We need some firm action. They need to know… we are serious. Obama’s speeches right now do not emulate any power, authority, or respect. They do not say we mean business. They do not say we will not stand here and let you behead another of our citizens… not even close. We need hero right now… who will it be?

I believe in our country.
