    I appreciate your honesty. What percentage of Muslims do you believe support expanding the reach of Islam through whatever means are available, including force? Am I wrong if it is only 90%? Or 80% or 70%?

    Define closet jihadi.

    Great, a hate Islam thread.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    another sad chapter in a messed up country, but given what we have seen over the last 10 years not really a shock or even worthy of our comments at this point
    ‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).

    Recruitment numbers and amount of attacks wish to say otherwise.

    Larry Schweikart has a good book on this, and I'll also provide a report to the LoC: http://www.loc.gov/rr/frd/pdf-files/..._Terrorism.pdf.
    I agree that there are many reasons "why" people become terrorists, but recruitment numbers skyrocketed after we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq and become cesspool for terrorist recruitment and terrorist attacks.

    Secondly the point is logical in that as we inflict greater casualties we reduce the recruitment pool.
    Not really.
    War is hell. People see people die, when there loved ones die, when their friends, neighbors etc die those causalities are used as a recruitment tool and propaganda tool and people become attracted to the use of terror and anything that says what they are doing is justified because the people who did this killed x,y,z

    Thirdly with regard to the insurgent activity in Iraq this is decoupled from the terrorist point, as it deals with sectarian, irredentist, and other domestic political actors.
    Well Iraq is not a terrorist hotspot

    As for Bin Laden we have done a fantastic job of crippling his organization and driving Islamist groups back on virtually all fronts, international Islamist terrorism has certainly been on the decline in terms of activities, existing networks, operatives, etc.
    Fantastic is questionable sense all they have done is just reloacated to Pakistan.

    There are more pirates in Somalia too. Are you proposing capitulation instead of resolve?
    What the hell are you talking about now?

    Do you prefer murder over justice and freedom?
    I prefer we stop ****ing creating terrorists. Do i only have two choices here. Is this the stupid "either you are with us or you are with the terrorists"? Fighting terror with terror does not work.

    I'm a Christian, so of course I do. Not even close to the same thing, since Christians don't face even near the amount of bigotry as Muslims have to endure. I know first hand, because I was a Muslim for quite a while.

    So are you proposing that we stay at home and absorb the attacks?

    What the hell are you talking about now?
    In addition to countering terrorists we are also countering pirates. And yet there are more pirates now than when we started. Should we capitulate anytime there are difficulties?

    I prefer we stop ****ing creating terrorists. Do i only have two choices here. Is this the stupid "either you are with us or you are with the terrorists"? Fighting terror with terror does not work.
    Just admit it. You do prefer murder of American citizens over justice. Do you actually believe we are fighting terror with terror? Do you believe we are targeting civilians for murder in order to achieve a political effect?

    Or do you just object to killing terrorists everywhere we find them?

    Re: Taliban shoot woman 9 times in public execution as men cheer

    Let's start with failed states. Do you believe a nation under attack by terrorists is a failed state? Should we accept Noam Chomsky's word for it?
    Second, if the second article is true who should we blame for the mess? Who declared victory and left? Wasn't it the butt-kissing, always bowing one term Marxist flexible president Barrack Hussein Obama?
    And third, your third article is noting more than a rehash of the leftist talking points.

    Get real yourself.
