    Okay, well that's actually very wrong. You can look up Ken Pollack if you want. I'm sure you won't.

    The hilarious thing is that you don't even know what the book says, but you're trying to make a case against it. Why do you think that is?

    I'm fairly certain I do. Not only have I been several times, I've also studied it.

    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.
    Well, that's just laughable. It will never be executed, because the government is not entirely filled with dunces.

    That doesn't explain why the West rules as opposed to China.

    The nuking of the entire area may not be nesserry and I would be not against it if they proved to be so implacable themselves as to invite extinction. I would use use nuclear weopons in a limited scenario for maximum pyscological effect. Nuclear weapons make a superior phycological weapon. I would also use gas weapons such as the pepper and cs gas and skin irratent mixes when we engage them conventionaly to complicate the logistics of their engagements by making them take into account hostile enviroments, and the possibility of us using lethal gas. We should stack the deck in our favor as much as possible. There is no such thing as cheating in war. When Johhny Jihad hides behind children that should not be a problem for us but an opportunity. An opportunity to strike fear into those around them for the safety of their loved ones. I am personally an adovcate of shooting hostages in ANY situtation. Again if we dont have too kill everybody we shouldn't. Just make it clear they cant hide behind sheilds. War idealy should be quick brutal, and vicous. Prolonging it only invites more causultie on BOTH sides.

    I have made no case against this specific author. I make the general case that if the author cannot explain the problem in one paragraph then he does not understand the problem.

    As I do not have time to read even the books I already own why go after an author who cannot meet that simple qualification?

    Cool. Tell us, in one paragraph what you think the problem is.

    Do you believe that China has had free market capitalism? If so when did they begin to allow the people to make their own decisions?

    I agree.

    Complete utter lack of logic to suggest that threatening to bomb Mecca would some how deter terrorists instead of emboldening them.

    That is despicable.
