Persecution in 2015

Seventy-five years ago our grandparents looked at the persecution of the Jews under Nazi Germany and swore never again.

Today, the rest of the world sits idle while Christians are being executed by ISIS in Ethiopia.

It's been a year since the Nigerian schoolgirls were kidnapped and sold into slavery. The hashtag Bring Back our Girls campaign has not moved Boko Haram to release any of them.

I support The First Lady on this one, I think she should be out there bringing attention to the kidnapping, rape, and enslavement of children. I also think her husband should be asking Congress for a declaration of war.

If what remains of the civilized world mean to stop the genocide of non-Muslims by ISIS, Boko Haram, and other extermist groups, it's going to take men with rifles, tanks, and bombs with orders to destroy these organization and those that support them.

Until then it's pretty much #businessasusual

You'll have to wait until we get all the oil out of the Middle East, first. Then we can do a better job being Cops Of The World.

Screw that. It's horrible. I agree that it's horrible.

But it is NOT our problem.

THe blood of one US trooper should not be shed over the inability of backwards-assed countries to govern themselves like civilized humans.

I'm sorry. That's cold as hell, but we need to just stay out.

Every time we try to go in and make things better, we make them worse, and we get dragged through the mud for doing it. I'm tired of it.

Screw that.
