WHY CAN'T KENYA TRACK DOWN ITS OWN TERRORISTS?
WHY CAN'T LIBYA SOMALIA ALL NATIONS SIMPLY HANDLE THEIR OWN AFFAIRS AND LET AMERICA KNOW IT ISN'T NEEDED TO GO AFTER ANY 'TERRORISTS' INSIDE THE BORDERS OF ANY OTHER NATION?
WHY IS IT THAT IT'S ALWAYS AMERICA TRYING TO CONVINCE ITS "ALLIES" TO JOIN IN "HOT PURSUIT" OF "FLEEING TERRORISTS" OR THAT ELUSIVE AND MYTHICAL "AL QAEDA"?
WHO ELSE SENDS FIGHTER JETS AND MISSILES INTO OTHER COUNTRIES AT THE DROP OF A HAT? FRANCE? GREAT BRITAIN? GERMANY?
WHY SHOULD OUR TROOPS BE SENT TO TRACK DOWN THOSE WHO HIT THE KENYAN MALL?

<<WASHINGTON -- Navy SEALs carried out a predawn raid Saturday against a suspected Shabab leader in Somalia who is believed to have planned the group's deadly attack last month on a shopping mall in Kenya, two U.S. officials said.
Also Saturday, a Libyan Al Qaeda leader wanted in connection with the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in East Africa was reportedly captured in Tripoli, Libya.
A U.S. official said the Somalia raid involved commandos storming a beachfront house in a town not far from Mogadishu. It remained unclear whether the target of the raid was killed or even was present.
"At this point we can't confirm his status. He may not have been there, or could have been killed or injured," a U.S. official said.
The raid also points to a growing willingness to put U.S. troops on the ground to fight the Shabab after years of trying to contain the threat by using drones and by backing African troops sent to Somalia in an effort to stabilize the war-torn country.>>
LOUSY "INTELLIGENCE" FOR THE "GREATEST NATION ON EARTH", EH?
THEIR "INTELLIGENCE" DOESN'T KNOW IF HE WAS THERE OR NOT, SO THEY JUST ORDERED A RAID FOR ...WHAT? JUST FOR THE HELL OF IT ALL?
WHY ORDER A RAID IF YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW THE INTENDED VICTIM IS THERE???
THAT'S JUST STUPID!
AS FOR OBAMA, THERE HE GOES AGAIN! FOR SOMEONE WHO WAS SO SET AGAINST U.S. INVOLVEMENT OVER IN THE DEEP SANDS REGION OF THE WORLD, OBAMA HAS SURE CHANGED HIS MIND ON THAT!
<<The raid was approved by President Obama after he was briefed on the intelligence, the official said.
For years, the U.S. has avoided putting troops in Somalia, a vestige of the bloody battle 20 years ago in Mogadishu when 18 Americans were killed and two Blackhawk helicopters were shot down.
The raid Saturday was the first major U.S. attack since Aden Hashi Ayro, the Shabab's leader, was killed in 2008 by a drone strike on his house, about 300 miles north of Mogadishu.>>
I'M JUST GOING TO SAY IT...
IF I WERE SOME OTHER NATION, ANY OTHER NATION, I'D RATHER GIVE UP AND RENT OUT THE ENTIRE COUNTRY THAN ALLOW FOREIGN INTERVENTION. THAT ALWAYS LEADS TO DEBT OF ONE TYPE OR ANOTHER, TO A TYPE OF SERVITUDE, TO ONE'S OWN PEOPLE HATING THOSE WHO ALLOW FOREIGN TROOPS ON THEIR SOIL, AND IT ALWAYS, ALWAYS ENDS POORLY. OUR MEN AND WOMEN IN THOSE NATIONS ARE IN CONSTANT DANGER, HATED AND REVILED, TARGETS 24 HOURS A DAY FOR EVERY DAY THEY'RE THERE!
WHY WOULD AMERICA OFFER UP EVEN ONE OF OUR TROOP'S LIVES FOR ALL THE GOOD OUR "INTERVENTIONS" HAVE DONE ABROAD?
HAS LOSING THOUSANDS OF OUR BEST AND BRAVEST CHANGED ONE SMALL THING IN ANY NATION WE SENT THEM TO?
NO! AND IT NEVER WILL!
THE PEOPLE WITHIN THOSE NATIONS, THEY ALONE CAN CHANGE THINGS!
WE CAN NEVER FORCE OUR POLICIES AND BELIEFS ON ANYONE!
THAT GETS U.S. TROOPS KILLED!
THAT GETS AMERICA AND AMERICANS HATED AMONG ALL NATIONS!
HONESTLY, IF ANY NATION CANNOT HANDLE ITS INTERNAL AFFAIRS, LET IT SELL-OFF ITS LANDS AND BECOME CITIZENS OF WHATEVER NEW GOVERNMENT TAKES THE REINS!
SICK OF "MILITARY POLICE ACTION" IN FAR-FLUNG AREAS OF THE GLOBE ROBBING US OF OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS, ROBBING OUR FAILING ECONOMY, AND MAKING ENEMIES FOR THE U.S. ALL OVER THE GLOBE!
OUR SEAL TEAMS IN LIBYA AND SOMALIA, IN AFGHANISTAN, IRAQ, CHAD, MALAYSIA, EVEN GERMANY, FRANCE, ANYWHERE ?
WE ARE NOT LEGALLY AT WAR WITH ANY NATION ON THIS EARTH!
BRING OUR TROOPS HOME TO "POLICE" CONGRESS, OUR OWN BORDERS!
LET THEM COME HOME!
TELL WASHINGTON TO STOP BEING AFRAID TO LET OUR TROOPS COME HOME!
THEY DESERVE A REST!
THEY DESERVE TO LIVE!
THE NATIONS THEY ARE SENT TO TODAY DESPISE THEIR PRESENCE.
LET THOSE NATIONS TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN INTERNAL PROBLEMS WITH THEIR OWN TROOPS!
I AND MY FAMILY HAVE LOST MORE THAN ENOUGH MEMBERS AND FRIENDS ON FOREIGN SOIL SINCE THE LAST DECLARED WAR!
BRING THE TROOPS HOME NOW!
