    PLEASE, HELP THIS HERO. We need to send him donations to pay his hospital bill and disappear into anonymity. Crowdwise.com or GoFundMe.com Please advise if any of you already know where to send our donations for a Spencer Stone Hero Fund, or whatever it may be called. Frankly, France is indebted to him and they should reimburse him for saving so many French lives. Stone did what he did because he had to do it and not because of wanting any rewards. But the tide has changed and now he needs, and deserves, our help.

    • marlene, not sure if there is any kind of funding set up. If I find something, I’ll post it here.

  • Now, I ask again: why are our troops intervening in every other civil war in the world when our own territory is unsecured, and in particular our borders? It’s time to hunker down and get serious. Let the rest of the world fight their own fights. We have some big ones coming.

    • Norma, it’s incomprehensible that we will fight for a side that has no one good in it. ALL the fighters are jihadis and as the General that John McCain supported in Syria said, ‘I’ll never recognize Israel.’ McCain thought he was swell. Mubarak, Assad and Gaddafi –– all kept the peace with Israel. I’m sure they loathed it, but they did it, because they knew what was coming at them if they didn’t. Then Obama . . . and they knew what wouldn’t come at them.

      Among the fighters, there’s no one worthy of defending. We should remember that Saddam Hussein was Sunni and his is one of the unmatched tyrants of the Middle East. The Shias have their chance now, and it’s definitely an eye for an eye. The innocents –– the women and children must find a way to leave Islam. It will never change.
