    Thanks, Pol. Looking at the Russian response to such a problem in the Second Chechen war does provide some insight into what Russia might do. Their chief interest these days is to turn the nutcase Muslims against the West - as if the Jihadies need any encouragement. It's anybody's guess on how brutal the Chinese might be, but it's a pretty safe bet their objective is similar to Russia's - at least at the outset. The EU is useless. I am left wondering just how much Muslim on Muslim violence those innocents caught in the middle are willing to take before they stand up and put an end to it. I don't think they can, and their leaders are busily calculating how they can gain political advantage out of supporting this group of nuts or that other group of nuts, or begging for an intervention from somebody. It's tribal and religious sectarian strife at it's finest.

I'd be very happy for them to police themselves. If they won't, or can't, then who do you propose might do that job? I'd be happy to let the Chinese or Russians take a crack at it. Muslims might not be all that happy with the methods those two countries might employ, but then, that's their problem.
    Very true. It is unfortunate that the majority, who claim to be peaceful, seem unwilling to protest the defilement of their religion by the violent extremists. In some ways it is perhaps analogous to the German people who were unable to control the Nazis on their own, and suffered terribly for that failure.

    I wouldn't mind the Chinese or the Russians, or Icelanders or whomever doing the job. We will not be able to totally isolate the ME or ourselves from it. We do not, however, need to be so intimately involved, and if and when we do need to be involved, it should be definitive and devastating. No pinpricks or half-hearted messing around lobbing a few missiles here or there. We should acknowledge that when military action is required, any and all diplomatic and economic solutions have been exhausted first. This was not done in Syria, and we have paid a price for Obama's failure in that regard.

    Where are the Christians around the world committing terrorist acts and murdering thousands of innocents? Where are the Christian suicide bombers?

    It's the Christians who are the targets of bloodthirsty Muslims (see Egypt and Syria)

    That's a good observation. The radical Muslims and the German Nazis share much, and there are many who note the correlations and similarities going all the way back to well before WWII, including joining in common cause during that war.

    Unless there's one overseeing decision head of ___ religion which governs all activity - I don't see how this is possible. Certainly, there isn't any one such individual or collective within Islam. It is, in fact, extremely divided with a large number of its followers being appalled by such actions.
    They don't. But they do have people running around doing all manner of things in their name. If I were Muslim, I'd take offense at my religion being so denigrated and do something about it. The longer they remain intransigent over it, the wider the brush that paints them.

    I just can't go there with you humbolt. This is not a problem for the military. These people are pissed at America because of our interference in their internal issues, YOU would eventually tire of someone doing the same to you. These people mingle through out their societies, they work, eat and sleep amongst them. The 'devastating' attacks you advocate will be indiscriminate and cause the innocent to suffer. Any attacks at all must in fact be pin pricks, surgical and precise. The 'turn the place into a parking lot' is as crazy as what the radicals want to do.

    Not all of the extremists committing these acts of terror are working for Allah. There are people in it for a host of different reasons. Money (Mercs) is even one. We had Americans, a Canadian, a Brit, and an attacker from Finland involved in the Kenyan attack. But the larger conflict is between Christian and Muslim nations. And so far, the Christian nations have killed more of them than the other way around.

    Yes, you'd man up to guys that are capable of chopping your head off or pulling your heart out and eating it. MILES COPELAND.
