As for a casuaties we will see over the next few days how it affects Afghan given the fact the Taliban have pledged to increase attacks and no doubt would of found a few new recruits!
    To date, there is no evidence, in the form of a spike in US casualty figures, that supports the notion that pissing off the Muslims will get more Americans killed.

    No, but it sure makes target identification easier. If they are actually willing to become violent and cause harm over an opinion expressed in a movie, then simply shoot the dumb bastards and get it over with. The world would be a better place without them.

    I'll try to respond to all of you in one short post.

    1) If you read my posts nowhere did I say that he did not have the RIGHT to do what he did.

    2) If it was legal today for you to yell FIRE in a crowded theater - would you? Think about that for a while.

    There a difference between RIGHTS and RIGHT even though we use the same word.

    I don't care about or like Muslims or any other super-religious folks. Taking actions in the name of invisible sky-things won't get you any respect from me. However, people are getting killed here and that's not right and not funny and not appropriate to score political points with. Another 9/11 tragedy but instead of coming together in respect, it's just a bunch of political childishness. You DO remember 9/11/2001? We mourned together. On 9/11/2012, I'm just embarrassed to be an American.

    I've said all I have to say on this topic and I won't be returning to this thread. Thank you for your participation.

    ((Why should my right to hold an opinion even be questioned, and especially by the partisan?))

The idea we should treat these retards with kid gloves because otherwise they'll act like 2-year olds and throw a tantrum is absurd.

    People should never get special treatment because they have imaginary friends.

    Do try to keep up, Grant. Let me help.

    All KKK members are white, therefore all white people are KKK members? Work on that concept, apply it to Islamists and Muslims and then get back to me.

    And while you are doing that:

    Here in America, how many times have you, your family and/or your friends been personally attacked by Muslims because of your religion?

    Beyond military service have you ever been outside of the United States?

    How many times outside the US have you and yours been attacked by Muslims because of your religion?

    Why do leftists have such a very clear problem with forming intelligent analogies? Was that the method they taught you in grade school so you would be more likely to understand?

    This is not about the KKK or White people. The facts don't need analogies.

    And while you are doing that:

    Here in America, how many times have you, your family and/or your friends been personally attacked by Muslims because of your religion?


    Never

    Beyond military service have you ever been outside of the United States?
    Yes
    How many times outside the US have you and yours been attacked by Muslims because of your religion?
    Never.

    I'm a Canadian living in Costa Rica.

    Whew!

    It's neither legal, nor right to murder people over a movie you don't like. Think about that for a while.

    It was white folks that crippled the klu klux klowns and made them insignificant. It was a couple of my white friends that beat the **** out of klownsman and left him in a road ditch, to die.

    What are the moderate Muslims doing to squelch the Islamofacists? Nothing.

    What response did we get from the Egyptian government? They want their consulate in the states to take leagal action against Bacile.
