    I'm talking about the fact that drone strikes are aimed at terrorists and terrorist sympathizers. I realize that people like you would rather wait until they kill a few americans before getting outraged, but for me - and for most americans - I like the fact that there isn't an Al Quaeda terrorist anywhere in the world that doesn't go to sleep at night without the thought in the back of his mind that Mr. Drone might visit him. These people have received sanctuary in Pakistan, and those who give them sanctuary can't complain when they get caught in the explosion.
    What terrorists, and why are they terrorists? You keep saying terrorist, I'll keep asking you specifically who they are and why they are terrorists.

    I have an idea. Why don't we leave other people in the world the **** alone? Why don't we stop invading their nations and overthrowing their governments, killing their people, denigrating their cultures and religions, stealing reasons and occupying their lands? Don't tell me you know what the results would be because we've never tried it! We will continue doing the same thing and continue to complain because the results will be the same.
    We are there because their governments want us there. When their governments no longer want us there we won't be.

    First, I'd disagree with your number. How did you come up with 1 million anyway.........symapathizer math?

    Secondly, if we did accept your number.....just how much harm could a measly one million violent Muslims do? I know, I know.......no big deal in your world........just a matter of statistics......no need to be alarmed.
    No really keep trying to explain why it's ok to condemn Islam because of a few extremists but Christianity is immune to criticism.

    Why yes or no? Is that important to you?

    The fact is when Islamic fundamentalists gain control, as they are doing, personal rights and freedoms will disappear. Turkey was a secular nation and NOT controlled by Islamists, despite Muslims being in the majority. It was, as in most countries with a Christian background, live and let live. That is not what is happening there now.

    I think it's a bit of both: islam is extremely political. It has a prophet who acted as the head of state and military leader. Which is something we don't see with any other religion. But I am unsure what that has to do with the above, or the thorough debunking of your above premise
