    Yes, but it would let the American people know that someone is in charge and taking the leadership role.

      Other than idiots like you, who is clamoring for this?
      They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

      I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

        Certainly not the liberal mainstream media, can’t be offending the King.. Of course this is the first attack on an American concern in 8 years, so it is something we aren’t used to.

            Actually no one really cares except idiots like you.

            Or moonbat.

            It's not like Americans haven't been taken hostage while conservatives were in office. And no one (except their immediate families) cared about them either.

              Yes, but during those times we had a leader that would address the nation. If you had been around during the Iranian Hostage Crisis or the Achille Lauro you would know that.Yes, but during those times we had a leader that would address the nation.

                Wow!! Hitting the sauce early on Easter? Not only were you redundant, you said the same thing twice.

                Reagan had about 50 hostages taken during the early part of his Administration and they were held for YEARS. I don't recall him addressing the nation on a frequent basis other than saying, "the US doesn't negotiate with terrorists."

                And Somali piracy was such a concern during 2008 (remind us of the leader in the WH that year) that 111 attacks on ships were virtually ignored not only by the media but the President as well.

                Once again, idiotboy is trying to make believe something that didn't happen. And trying to create an issue that doesn't exist.

                • Actually, about the only country that has even a bit of sucess in hostage crisis are the Isrealis and their record sure isn't perfect. One story that was relayed to me concerned the Soviet war in Afghanistan. Seems the Mujhaddin took four Red Army lads prisoner and demanded ransom. The Sovs took 8 Muj prisoner, castrated them and sent them home with the warning that 8 more would follow daily. The prisoners were returned relatively unharmed. I can't vouch for the veracity of that, and in any case, the Red Army retreated in ignomy a few years later. Terrorism is a pretty hard enemy to fight, especially if you try to play by rules when the terrorists don't.

                    Bryan, let's hope your words aren't prophetic in this case and that Captain Phillips comes home safe and sound.

                      The same can be said for the gangs and drug cartels as well. We have two choices. Lay down and take it or stand up and fight.

                        Does this mean you're signing up to go fight? Once again, who is "we?"

                        • Time for a few go fast boats with some 105's on 'em.When you send a few of the "unfriendly" dahous and their crews to the briny deep,generally the rest will catch on.A few "fake"freighters like the used in WW2 could effect a similar result. When in doubt,SINK! T.C.
