Hurt a CIA operative or agent?
Get a visit from your friendly, neighborhood RANGER.
Dude, I'd turn this into the new story for Modern Warfare 4.
The near-Israel area would be trembling with fear as Army Special Forces, Rangers and Delta, Navy SeALs and USMC Force Recon and Recon stalked the streets at night. I might even send in CIA Special Activities Staff. Notice how when George Bush was president, and terrorists finally learned the meaning of terror (thanks to the aforementioned parties I said I'd be throwing at them), anti-American terror strikes downspiked, significantly. Then, when President Wimp gets into office, they upspike through the roof.
First of all, this "Department of Defense" crap has got to go. I'd be changing the letterhead back to "DEPARTMENT OF WAR", and the Secretary of Defense would become the SECRETARY OF WAR. You don't win wars by being on the defensive, and projecting that image doesn't help, either. This is the perfect opportunity for USSOCOM and Israel's special operations command structure to hone their craft, especially joint operating and the research/development/testing of new (and deadly) equipment. I'd be using the Special Forces to foment violent revolutions against every muslim government in the region, on down through Africa, and the SeALs, Rangers, Recon, Force Recon and Delta to teach people that live by the deaths of others, and those that live vicariously through them, what its like when you're the one being hunted down and terrorized. Flat out: this kind of crap will continue to happen, for as long as these animals think its worth the risk. When they get to thinking they'll suddenly be killed by an Army Ranger raid and a direct hit JDAM, then people all the way from Egypt to Tehran sucking on .50 caliber slappers, straight from the tap:
The psychological impact, alone, of seeing the guy next to you explode like a salami under a shotgun is priceless, and would not be lost on near-thoughtless muslim murderers. Or anybody considering becoming one that sees the mess. When it dawns on the densest skull that doing something like this will result in the near extermination and extinction of your family, friends, family friends, friends' families and anybody that so much as gave you a kind look out on the streets, I'm thinking these kinds of incidents will become a lot less common.
Until we realize we're dealing with people that worship Satan: God of Death, we'll remain on the losing "defense" end. When we wake up to that fact, and show them that they're dealing with the nation that has suddenly woke up, and with one hand tells the world they're trying all diplomatic channels, under the light of day, but cheerfully sending USSOCOM KILLERS to any and every nook, cranny, "gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse" in the WORLD, under cover of darkness with the other hand, things will change. Muslims don't ordinarily strike at targets that they percieve to be strong. The only minor exception is Chechnya. They fight the Soviets for independence, and that became tainted by islam. Otherwise, the violent Soviets and Soviet Chinese are untouched, because they [muslims] know full well what these governments will do to them, in short order [SPETSNAZ, ALFA, People's Liberation Army Special Operations Forces]. The strength of the United States, and especially USSOCOM, is corrupted by political weakness and lack of willpower and resolve.
I think the Soldiers of the 4th Psychological Operations Group (Airborne) & 95th Civil Affairs Brigade (Airborne) might have fun with this, too. Hey, maybe even the SAS might get involved. Infinity Ward (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infinity_Ward) stock would shoot through the roof, off this franchise.
If I could click "Like" on this comment 50 billion times, you would suddenly become a VERY popular man!!! Horrible, horrible things are coming for them, and we need to set the WORLD ON FIRE to go get them back!
This story instantaneously crushed me! I was watching TV, then the Fox News Alert came on, and I immediately got sick...WE NEED TO GO GET OUR GUYS!!! RIGHT NOW! Come on Obama, do the right thing for once! We need to bomb the living shit out of those ass-holes if they hurt our guys. So gut-wrenching...I can't imagine how their families are feeling right now. MANY MANY prayers are on the way!
And as usual he would be half right and dead wrong.
And hopefully someone would be the one to point out portions of the liberal groups agree with him and have been sending our tax money to hezbollah while they attack our allies and murder innocent people.
I dont think they were captured... i read the details but so far all i have seen is they were "exposed"
I havnt heard their fate.
If they were captured, I would hope not, though it appears the CIA saw this coming and did nothing to protect their people.
I still want to know why the hell we have allowed the obamao admin to give funding to this terrorist group.
