    Has anyone here read The Path Out of the Desert by Ken Pollack? It's pretty much the preeminent framework for dealing with the region.

    In this war, the enemy is the guy totin' the AK-47 and he's shooting at you.

    If you cannot help yourself no one else will be able to help you either.

    Or in front of the embassy/consulate throwing bad things at you, or shooting at you in some cases. Damn shame someone won't let us waste them as they show up. Much easier than hunting them down later.

    Come on! You know that's not always the case. There are also cases in which he's a suicide bomber. Don't forget about all of our guys who have died from roadside IEDs too. These guys blend in with the civilians and THEN pop out with their AK-47s and start shooting. This war is completely different than WWII and is MUCH more similar to Vietnam.

    I haven't. But if it doesn't say kill the bad ones and teach the rest to live in the modern world tolerant of others, then it would be pretty useless.

    Politely tell them to leave. Then destroy Mecca.

    Why do you believe destroying a place sill cause millions to die? Do you believe they will all die of hear attacks when their realize there is not god named Allah?

    I guess you'd have to find out. Rarely is complex policy as simple as a sentence.
