I think this has to be incremental but strong and purposeful.
Cut off aid and warn them if another riot occurs or innocent westerners murdered, the leadership of that country where this occurred will be destroyed by a cluster bomb. And be sure to follow through.
Do this once or twice and the world will be a safer place.
This time it is different. This time we are fighting a political-religious enemy. So instead of cities we destroy mosques. We destroy the Islamofascist high command, the Clerics. And we put people on notice that attacking us anywhere in the world means that we respond with force.
I do agree. Except in the case of military necessity.It would be a shame to destroy such an historic site but they have no compunction about destroying the religious symbols or buildings of others. It could be used as a threat if a few mosques are destroyed first.
I propose drawing up a list of all Islamic holy places. Each time we are attacked select the next one on the list and utterly destroy it.
