    Yes. I see Islam advancing itself through violence. Let us return some of that violence in ways that matter.
    We can kill the street thugs when they come. But we also need to destroy those things the Islamofascists hold dear.
    That would be a very, very bad idea.

    Your last first. We already have a war with Islam. They have been waging it against the west for a very long time. Now it is time for us to reciprocate.

    For each bad behavior we take another holy site.
    We would have to rid ourselves of the Muslims in the West.

    Media for Christ calls itself Evangelical Christian media.

    I have said nothing inconsistent with historical fact. Warfare of WWII was more brutal due to the lack of precision weaponry. The bombings of cities were meant to break the military industrial complexes. Had we had the precision weapons of today, the bombings would have been far more confined to strategic targets within cities rather than the cities themselves.
    LOL. I cannot tell if I know more than you or not.

    WWII was brutal because it was total war. We have not fought another total war since WWII. Every war we have been involved in has been limited.

    Personally, I like them. I prefer forced conversions to killings. The rest of your questions were mere piffle.

    So, your suggestion for fighting radical Islam is destroying Mecca, the holy site of ALL Muslims?

    You know by doing that, it would probably put the United States in much, much more danger that is has been in, right?

    It was total war because we lacked absolute weaponry superiority. As a result, we had to throw everything we had into it. Nowadays, we have absolute weapon superiority...which is why we've lost less people in over ten years, in two wars, then allied forces lost in Normandy.

    Can you imagine the shock in a billion people's hearts when they realize their god is a mere fable?

    We need only destroy the holy places of Mecca.
    We will lose the long term war to Islam if we do nothing. Look at the numbers of people who post attitudes of surrender so we do not offend Muslims. No. We need a dramatic gesture.

    What idea do you put forward for us to consider?
