    There are times when that stick must be shown forcefully.

    Oh, and Joe Biden said Obama does have a big stick....Obviously he wasn't talking about foreign policy....

    That would definitely change the dynamics of the situation. We'd go from a handful of radicals opposing us to a majority of the Muslim world opposing us. Yep. That's what we want to achieve, all right. Nothing like a nice, big, bloody war.

    Can you link me to the posts by you condemning the attacks on the Coptic Christian attacks of recent? I don't recall you jumping in so vocally about that...

    Although I do not like TR he did actually use the stick. It is not enough to carry it around. People must know you will hit them with it when they annoy you.

    Oh, it's coming...The question is, would you rather fight it on our terms, on their land, or on their terms, on our land?

    It barely seems risky to me.

    Arm up. We are already in a war. Only the Islamist are the only one fighting. It is time for us to make a stand.

    It's coming?

    What's coming, an all out war between Islam and... and.. liberty?

    A holy war between Musims and Christians?

    the second coming of Christ, or the coming of the 12th. Iman?

    What?

    See, this is why academics are so frustrating to deal with...You don't know what I was saying, really? If that is truly the case ditto, then we are done here, because I feel you'll have trouble keeping up, and I don't want to have to waste time educating you.

    Well yea that would be a good example of how Christianity is bad. Because face it you are not talking political war you are talking religious war. Which is par for course for Christianity in general. Perhaps bring back the crusades?

    Islam is a political-religious entity. I am not a Christian. Why do you believe it to be a holy war? I am simply insisting that they begin to display good behavior or suffer the consequences. And the consequences should begin today.

    If the moderate Islamist exists perhaps they should join together to stop the radicals. Don't you agree?
