Vance, people are not born radicals. Unlike what you presume, my intention is to not coddle them. It's silly to even think it. I despise radicals as much as any normal thinking human. But what I want to know is... what causes them to be that way? Once that is figured out, wouldn't it be so much better trying to fix those issues rather than bombing the **** out of them? Because if one chooses the latter, I suspect that more radicals will develop from such choices and the cycle would never end.
Now do you see where I am coming from?

THREE Christian high school girls were beheaded as a Ramadan "trophy" by Indonesian militants who conceived the idea after a visit to Philippines jihadists, a court heard yesterday.
The girls' severed heads were dumped in plastic bags in their village in Indonesia's strife-torn Central Sulawesi province, along with a handwritten note threatening more such attacks.
The note read: "Wanted: 100 more Christian heads, teenaged or adult, male or female; blood shall be answered with blood, soul with soul, head with head."
Javanese trader Hasanuddin appeared in Jakarta Central Court yesterday charged with planning and directing the murders in October last year. He faces a death sentence if found guilty under anti-terrorism legislation.
Its just moronic why those schoolgirls dont get why they were beheaded.
