    These latest incidents are just that incidents, in a war that has been raging for around 60 years already. We are already at war with them, we are not "starting" one over this.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    Of course not. That is because they do not yet have the numbers. It seems you are still caught up with the idea of traditional warfare from the last century. You should forget about that and think of the objective of war, and how to gain that objective against nations with far superior weaponry. You certainly don't do it on the battlefield by wearing uniforms or identifying yourself in any way.

    Instead you create occasional terror to keep the host nation unsettled, make them feel guilty for their history while glorifying yours, introduce words such as "Islamophobia", and propagandize to the more vulnerable in the classrooms so they will be more sympathetic to the cause and turn on their own country as well.

    All of this strategy is achieving enormous success. They certainly know us better than we do.

    Yes, how long have we been at war now? A lot of good that's done, right?

    You already have a war. You just don't get it yet.

    Pay attention to what they are saying, not what Barrack Obama says.

    I certainly don't think that radical Islam is okay, but when it is happening in other countries, then it should be their problem and not ours. Why should our guys die when we could just leave there. I've heard we get most of our oil from S.A. anyway.

    Huh??

    They are at war with you.

    What part of that do you not understand? You cannot escape.

    Oil?? Do you really believe this is about oil

    I think that is one reason why this region is so important to us. Yes. What do you mean "you cannot escape." I think you sound a just a bit paranoid. NOT all Muslims are terrorists. I used to live next door to a couple who were Muslims. They were very good people. Just like with ANY religion, you are going to get your nuts and extremists. I agree that the ones who associate themselves with Islam seem to have an extra propensity to violence, but I believe that to be a more complicated problem than strictly due to just religious beliefs.

    So what if we hate Muslims? Shouldn't we hate the people who attack us? Or do you prefer Kum-ba-yah?

    Your not being attacked by Muslims your being attacked by radicals. You have to work with these countries to help get rid of extremism the government of Libya is trying to remove Al-Qaeda, but is still trying to build up security forces. In Libya it will work better if you just worked with the govment as most of the country are Liberal Muslims. In other news Libya just arrested 50 people for connection to the embassy attacks.

    What's your definition of a "Liberal Muslim"?
