Old link, but military response is dictated by civilian authority.
From Politico: "New Benghazi movie reignites 'stand-down' order debate. "There is no sensationalism in that: We were told to 'stand down,'" said former Special Forces Officer Kris Paronto, one of the CIA contractors who fought that night, in an interview with Politico. "Those words were used verbatim â 100 percent. If the truth of it affects someoneâs political career? Well, Iâm sorry. It happens."
Your Clinton lied when she said the attack was motivated by a video. It was not a protest, it was a carefully planned and executed attack, and even you know it. But I suppose we must take into account the inability of liberals to speak truth without having some difficulty. Agendas are important, after all.
If someone wants to smite me on the cheek for being a Christian, let them have at it. I hope it makes them feel better about themselves. if they want to shoot me for being alive, then I would wish that I or anyone else would do whatever is necessary to stop them.
Police are a man-made invention. There are no police in scripture, so there is no scriptural warrant for them.
Seriously though, how many would have died in that meeting house had someone said, "Call the police, that's what we pay them for"? Even if it only took them 5 minutes, a lunatic who is annoyed because they only gave him food, but no money, could have killed many with his 12 gauge loaded with double ought. The former deputy did what was good, and was praised by the authority for doing so. If that doesn't fit scripture, what does?
Jim Lincoln wrote: White nationalism have a whole lot to do with population growth rate of the country, since immigration is discouraged by the government, even those who may be Christian but aren't White The immigrants usually have a higher birth rate also that white Americans. Most industrial nations don't have birth rates that will replace the population, and have to have immigration the keep up the population total, which apparently the United States doesn't now have enough of â
It's funny how it works. We search all over Scripture to find somewhere that self defense is Scriptural. Then we cloud the issue by saying we should not defend against persecution, which is a different matter. Then we say there is no NT warrant. Then we say we are fighting God's sovereignty to defend. The logic of how overpowering God's sovereignty can be done via self defense is not explained. Consider as well, if an evil nut case comes into a building to kill you because he's an evil nut case, you aren't being persecuted for your faith, and if you die, you did not die for your faith. Maybe the feeling of being a martyr seems attractive, but isn't that mere self glorification? How hard is this?
Matthew 24:43 "But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up."
One might ask, would not this also apply if the thief came to steal lives, and the house happened to be a meeting house? One might ask, what is it that is clearly implied when it is said the goodman, being alert, would not have allowed it to happen?

Not to worry, Carl. The ones who have benefited don't need the media to tell them how they are doing, and it will be reflected in the voting booth. The media's efforts at controlling/manipulating information will have as much effect as Jim/Lincoln's has.
Issues of race are important to liberals. "Race remains a potent and often divisive force in our society" said the previous president. He was right. Liberals need it as the divisive issue it is. Chaos and division is part of their agenda to maintain problems only they can "fix."

You also have a happy something, Adriel. Hope your family "bug" leaves for Florida soon!
Why don't we just call it Wednesday and be done with it? There is no biblical warrant for naming today for the Germanic god Woden, but we should be able to call it something without becoming pagans in the process of doing so. Happy WĹdnesdĂŚg, everyone.
From the news: âMommy, they said that we're going to die in eight years.â Thatâs what Joylaea Blazevik, a distraught eight-year old, told her mother, Lejla Blazevik, following a presentation on global warming at her school, in Toronto, Canada. âThey were terrified with the information,â Mrs. Blazevik told the National Post, a major Canadian newspaper."
I wonder if Mommy did her right motherly duty, and tell her daughter that there is something terribly wrong with Greta, which makes her tell lies?
