    What the Islamic world really needs are a bunch of Kemel Ataturks willing to take them kicking and screaming from the dark ages and into the modern world. Until such a time, it looks to be just more of the same.

    The challenge lies in not letting them drag the world into darkness by changing us.

    It takes freedom of speech to change them. We had "Radio Free Europe." We should do so there.

    IF we became energy independent and pulled out of the region, the economic collapse and lack of our presence would keep they well occupied killing each other.

    Gee, the Froggies are retreating in a cut and run instead of taking a stand. Is this really surprising to anyone?

    They have to close 20 embassies because of a cartoon? That's ridiculous. I'm not sure who's dumber. The mag for posting a cartoon they KNOW will cause hassles for their government, injury and possibly death for embassy workers. Or the Muslims in those countries for being so easily baited, and actually getting riled up over a cartoon. It's a comedy of errors that's not so funny.

    and I would add to that wisdom the admonition not to also let us be suckered or goaded into military action which will take us into a different kind of darkness.
