    I've read all of them. It doesn't even address the subject.

    No, that's really not what it takes.
    To 'get their attention' right? That's laughable, man.
    What do you think would better get their attention?

    If your author cannot explain the core of the problem in the middle east in one paragraph then he does not understand the problem.

    Until he understands the core of the problem he is just one more voice trying to sell a book.

That is a nice touch.
    I'm sorry,but this thinking does not conform to reality.Each attack on Mecca or a mosque will create more fanatics and more targets....They kill people over cartoons and cheaply made movies nobody watches....I think attacking Muslim holy sites would only make things much much worse.

    Why muddy the waters? Kill the one in front of you. Let that be enough for today.

    No, the destruction of Mecca is to get their attention. Destruction of the mosques involved in launching, or supporting an attack upon Americans is just good policy.

    "Getting attention" really isn't the issue. We're not 6 year olds, nor are we 14 year old girls at a sock hop.

    So when you read Adam Smith as he explains why some nations are wealthy you did not realize he was describing free market capitalism? How sad for you.
