    I do not believe we need nuclear weapons except to set back Iran.

    I do believe we should destroy Mecca. I do believe we should get serious about winning our wars. I do believe we should not hesitate one bit to kill anyone who attacks us or who supports those who attack us.

    Of course if we really wanted to harm them long term we would invite their best and brightest to come learn what liberals have learned at our universities. That would cripple them. Do not teach them anything useful. Just model our liberals education.

    I don't mean nuclear weapons, just the approach. That is to create such a devastating effect, a few shock and awes, that they will avoid any type of murderous behaviour in the future.

    I do believe we should destroy Mecca. I do believe we should get serious about winning our wars. I do believe we should not hesitate one bit to kill anyone who attacks us or who supports those who attack us.
    I think you need more than that. A few lost lives mean little to them.

    Of course if we really wanted to harm them long term we would invite their best and brightest to come learn what liberals have learned at our universities. That would cripple them. Do not teach them anything useful. Just model our liberals education.

    That was the plan before 9/11 and we saw the result of that, as well as 'Muslim Studies' and anti Western attitudes at University campuses springing up all over the US. I'd say don't let Muslims in at all. There are other areas of the world which are far more civilized and where their young people are in need of a first rate education.

    Why would you destroy Mecca? Why not Vatican city or Jerusalem?

    266,000 young Saudis are cming to the US to study for advanced degrees in International law, Engineering, Medicine, Maritine Law, Economics and Finance.

    Your question shows that you do not get it.

    Those are useful things. I would insist that they only learn the things that liberals learn. So no more engineering. No more science. No more medicine. No more finance or economics or mathematics.

    Let them take women's studies, black studies, multiculturalism...you know, the low quality worthless studies that lead no where.

    They have women's studies, mathematics, Physics, Ceramic engineering, .. the list is endless. In recent years a number of prestigious American Universities have set up cooperative ventures and satellite programs in Saudi Arabia.

    Why is that troubling.. KAUST has been researching Hy-solar since 1980 and they have whole villages off grid and self contained office parks. It just takes ingenuity, money and will.

    I have always been happy when others do well and move forward.. but then envy is not one of my character flaws. I just don't get keeping the other guy down for me to be successful.

    Wow, it's like you are almost a saint or somethng.

    Except it wouldn't be "saint", exactly, I guess. What do you people call it, anyway?

    I think you'll find that Klown IS your enemy. Me too, come to that. I passionately wish to see you and your hateful ideology defeated, and by 'you', I mean you, Misterveritis and your political allies such as Grant, Bronson, MMC and your like, not necessarily the US of A, only until and if it behaves in the way you advocate.

    What do you believe would be the result of the USA destroying Mecca?

    Do you seriously see terrorism as a war between the USA and Islam? Really?

His explanation was similar, thought distinct from yours here - arguing that the terrorist relieved himself of an anger-driven inferiority complex through his actions; resolving cognitive dissonance. He's a filthy little turncoat sympathizer, Fannon is, but his work should be required reading (imo) for anyone who wants to study terrorism in general and Islamist ventures into it in particular. In addition you may want to try Dying to Win: the Strategic Logic of Suicide Terrorism by Robert Pape, which discusses suicide bombing from the realist perspective.

    The short answer is that while suicide bombing is not directly tied to any one particular religion or inherently tied to religion, it can be. Sort of like how some people join the Army because they are patriots and some join the Army for the educational opportunities, and neither negates the presence of the other.



    that's unfortunate, as it cuts you off from much that is best about humanity. Religion has driven us to do some of our best deeds.



    that is correct.
    I must say that was a very good response much better than the simplistic responses others have given me. I'm not sure I agree with you but I can't really come up with a good counter response so you win. Thanks for the book recommends I love reading books that make think about things from different points of view. Any chance those books are free ebooks anywhere?

    I'm not murdering and rioting but am commenting on those who do.

    Would you prefer that people not respond to those who kill innocent people?
