@Minou_Demimonde Minou, how much more could you do than pray to the One who has power over all - even our weasel weak Congress? Prayer is not a last resort but, a first resort. He can give "feet to our prayers" where we can't go. It's a good thing to agree and join together isn't it.
@Camo_Steve Also could have a lot to do with their culture. They are Americans yet, their parents and relatives are still of the old country and passing that on. They find themselves hooked up with the wrong ppl at the mosques they attend. In big part you got the problem right there - Islam.

Hagel, Dempsey, Josh Earnest (the worst presser yet - that man is lame) - I do not believe any of them. Pitiful state to be in to not trust your government and even members of your own party (if you're sure what party you belong to these days). The retired military at least are finally able to say something if they will - some do.

Jack, I knew I had read about this here at REP. Blake included them writing about Unconventional Warfare 101 back in SOFREP article 2012 with lead photo of America's Response.
When I saw the lead photo I was horrified to see the Horse Soldier behind the fence. I'm pleased to read it is temporary - how long is that in Manhattan? America's Response is very special to me and I want that fence down. Right now would not be soon enough.
Their secret mission: secure northern Afghanistan by advising the
warring tribal factions that formed the Northern Alliance. During the
2011 Veterans Day Parade on November 11, a new monument to these men —
and to all Americans in uniform — made its way down New York City’s
famed Fifth Avenue on the way to its final home, a stone’s throw from
Military men and women, along with New York City firefighters,
policemen, emergency responders and other marchers, 50,000 in all, will
escort the monument on its televised journey. The spectacle will feature
members of the three original Special Operations teams — some on
horseback, others walking alongside surviving spouses of fallen heroes.

It has been proven that repetition can brainwash - China is reaching the masses. We should know here in the US since Obama took office we were shocked how in one year he and his minions changed the vocabulary "nearly" taking out the word terrorist.

Here is an article dated today- Eyewitness accounts.
Listen to what Lt. Col Shaffer (Ret) has to say:
He told me and co-host Brian Wilson that the recently revealed rescue
attempt led by Special Forces earlier this summer failed because
President Obama was slow to give the go-ahead:
I’m hearing from my friends in the Pentagon, they are giving
him every single option way ahead of time. And let me give you a little
secret here: The reason that raid into Syria failed to get Foley and
those guys was because the president drug his feet. He waited too long,
the intel got stale, and by the time we actually gave the “go” word it
failed because we just didn’t react quick enough.

Breaking News: Officer Darren Wilson’s Eye Socket is not Fractured?
22 August 2014
CNN is running a report that disputes an earlier report from Fox
News. The earlier story from Fox reported that Officer Wilson’s eye
socket had been fractured in his confrontation with Michael Brown. CNN
is disputing that story but saying that Officer Wilson’s face was
treated for “bruising.”
While we can’t be 100% sure yet what is going on with this injury…
both the CNN report and the Fox News report seem to jibe with the police
departments earliest statement on the subject.

21 August 2014 /
brutal natural experiment is underway demonstrating the role of race,
riots, and radicals in determining whose death is noted, and whose
ignored in racialized America when unarmed young men are shot and killed
by police. While American and world media, along with the President
and Attorney General of the United States, obsess over the death of
Michael Brown at the hands of the Ferguson, Missouri police, few people
outside of Utah have heard of the remarkably parallel and
contemporaneous death of Dillon Taylor, an unarmed young man (and
father-to-be) from a gun shot by a Salt Lake City policeman, whose name
has not been released, but who has been identified the SLC chief of
police as nonwhite.
Here are the bare facts of the death of Dillon Taylor, via KUTV, Salt Lake:

@Jaycel Adkins Note: Just posted this article head of the thread:
Source says Brown raised his hands ... read it for yourself
Missouri cop was badly beaten before shooting Michael Brown, says source
Darren Wilson, the Ferguson, Mo., police officer whose fatal shooting
of Michael Brown touched off more than a week of demonstrations,
suffered severe facial injuries, including an orbital (eye socket)
fracture, and was nearly beaten unconscious by Brown moments before
firing his gun, a source close to the department's top brass told FoxNews.com.
“The Assistant (Police) Chief took him to the hospital, his face all
swollen on one side,” said the insider. “He was beaten very severely.”
(for you Jayce) The source also said the dashboard and body cameras, which might have
recorded crucial evidence, had been ordered by Ferguson Police Chief
Thomas Jackson, but had only recently arrived and had not yet been
Please read - lots of details:
@LawyerHandle @Txazz We learn credible sources of news but, each incident there are so many new ones. Any news sources I understand have to be proven after the sensationalism. It's a moment by moment conversation. You surely don't think I believe everything in print.
@LawyerHandle @Txazz of course that's a given, W. We are talkin MSM here. That's about all we have to go on any day is what the news reports and sometimes we can ferret out some truth.
@Jaycel Adkins @Txazz There is no persuasion nor rationale in this situation. Much more is in play other than the shooting at this point. There is no reason or rationale. The officer was just doing his dangerous job. The facts and witnesses prove that in the midst of this black community. That says something doesn't it.
Now, Holder comes to town to nail the officer and is bringing a federal civil rights lawsuit - just because Michael Brown was black.

Holder promises Ferguson ‘fair and thorough’ investigation
Holder has a long history of bias and corruption. You can be sure his visit will only make things worse.
Check it out:
In advance of his trip to restive Ferguson, Mo., Attorney General
Eric Holder Tuesday promised a “fair and thorough” investigation into
the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.
Holder said he was traveling to the city
to be briefed on the federal civil rights inquiry, which is running
parallel to the local shooting investigation headed by St. Louis County.Read more at http://conservativebyte.com/2014/08/holder-promises-ferguson-fair-thorough-investigation/#X8I4WbCoA2RmoXRw.99

Another stunning piece of news out of St. Louis is that sources in the Prosecutor’s office are willing to confirm that Officer Wilson suffered facial fractures
during his confrontation with Michael Brown. This piece of news also
seems to confirm Officer Wilson’s story that Brown hit him in the face
while trying to wrest the gun away from the officer.
Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.
A blowout fracture is a fracture of one or more of the bones
surrounding the eye and is commonly referred to as an orbital floor

Missouri gov calls for 'vigorous prosecution' of Ferguson shooting case
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon drew criticism from his own Lt. Governor Tuesday

shooting death of black 18-year-old Michael Brown by white police
Officer Darren Wilson in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson.
Step lively now Dem Gov Nixon - Papa Holder will be there today.
Against a knife the situation is even worse. If you rely only upon
your handgun – you just might get killed. Most people, law enforcement
included, have no idea how fast a knife wielding assailant can move. In a
blink of an eye he can be upon you. I have seen police videos of actual
stabbings and it is frightening. I have seen multiple armed police
officers getting stabbed one after another, afraid to open fire since
the assailant 'only' has a knife. Finally someone realizes that a knife
is a formidable weapon against a gun, and shoots the guy.
you have a hand gun, realize that it does not provide absolute
protection against a knife, especially as the distance decreases.

@majrod @YankeePapa I'm with you on that one, Maj. You should know since you come from a very tough neighborhood. I laughed when you said, "when you have to haul your loot to the car". It seems the police are standing their line with the neighborhood - not the looters.
@majrod @Txazz @portside Oh, ok, right on - Capt Johnson is making a difference in other areas with the community though.
I read earlier today that looters came from very far away from Ferguson. No worries - Eric Holder is on the way representing the administration.
@majrod @Txazz @portside true that but, who else could have done any better considering the circumstances.
