#1 The only civilized thing to do here is hunt the perps down like rats at the dump. Drone strikes, Delta Force, Letters of Marque & Reprisal, hunt them for sport, whatever it takes. Hell, create a Kickstarter project if the govt won't step up. We are at war, in case you haven't noticed.

#2 'execute' is the wrong word.

#3 in round figures - I expected about 50 hostages dead. However, all of the terrorists (with the possible exception of 3-5) were also killed. this raises the stakes in the coveert war in the Sahara. "Take no prisoners" is the new call ... it's going to be a rough game from here on out.

#4 Correct, Anguper; 'execute' indicates there was an offense for which they were killed. The correct term is 'murder.'

#5 From now on, the old movie cliche of taking one or two hostage and putting a gun to their heads while demanding everyone else drop their guns isn't going to play out very well either.

#6 [the Johnsons load their guns and point them at Bart. Bart then points his own pistol at his head]
Bart: [low voice] Hold it! Next man makes a move, the n****r gets it!
Olson Johnson: Hold it, men. He's not bluffing.
Dr. Sam Johnson: Listen to him, men. He's just crazy enough to do it!
Bart: [low voice] Drop it! Or I swear I'll blow this n****r's head all over this town!
Bart: [high-pitched voice] Oh, lo'dy, lo'd, he's desp'it! Do what he sayyyy, do what he sayyyy!
[Townspeople drop their guns. Bart jams the gun into his neck and drags himself through the crowd towards the station]
Harriet Johnson: Isn't anybody going to help that poor man?

#7 For the record, The NVA would routinely execute our wounded on the field of battle. That was why we moved heaven and earth to account for everyone and get the wounded off the field and to the aid station.
We would kill one by accident and the press has a hissy fit and they would routinely kill dozens of our wounded.
With these vermin, they are mad dogs and should be shot (but only after some aggressive interrogation to drain their brains of every last bit of information).

#8 Also, notice the coronation of the new "monster of monsters", the "Marlboro Man", one-eyed terrorist mastermind Mokhtar Belmokhtar!
Time for a two minutes hate?

#10 Glenmore, next line fits:
Dr Samuel Johnston: 'Hush Harriet, that's a sure way to get him killed'.

#11 I don't know that we have the stomach in the higher echelons of power to conduct a war with the ROEs of WWII. Many in Washington are distracted and too much in awe of what Michele was wearing to the various inauguration events. The tingling up Chris Matthews leg has returned. Fawning sycophants. Algeria hasn't gotten much attention in the MSM. They are too busy carrying water.

That is a a tired old movie trope that I've never heard being played out in real life.
