    So the Russians and Chinese are smart whereas the Americans are stupid. Of course it could be that Russians and Chinese are more cautious around the Islamic fanatics as well, given that they've both suffered attacks.

    Um, no. How'd you come up with that. My point is that both Russia and China have been pushing back on the US since Bush's war in Iraq, politically, and more recently economically, and militarily with increasing "incidents" as the bureaucrats like to say it. But then I suppose we're saying little about the poor woman who was beheaded, and the fact that there are those insisting that it was a crime associated with Muslim extremists.

    Not very well if you're defenseless, and living among relatively uncivilized people.

    Ask us again when the US homicide rate falls to below 450% of the UK's.

    Oh so you're ok with beheading's in the public square as long as some other country has a higher homocide rate eh? Nice.

    Really? Break it to me. What did they do? Did Russia invade any countries we had agreements with?
    What did China do? North Korea? What did North Korea do? Iran has been probing our weaknesses and we should have declared war on them.

    The big rally in London was attended by 1,000,000 people the rest in large cities around the country. I attended in my own city

    BTW and most significantly imo according to the BBC 1,000,000 Iraqis attended the protest in Baghdad
    There never has been a peace process, but rather an annexation process that used the “peace process” as a facade

Central Asian leaders concerned about the implications of the U.S. interest in “regime change” for their own rule, now have an added incentive to overstate terrorist threats facing their countries, while justifying the persecution of any political opposition and peaceful religious activity.
    By highlighting antiterrorism in U.S. security cooperation with Central Asia, the United States addresses a symptom, rather than the causes of regional security; thus it is pursuing a counterproductive strategy, contributing to the radicalization of political opposition movements and discrediting both democratization and the U.S. commitment to it. Instead, the United States should do more to address the underlying human security problems in the region, which increase its vulnerability to terrorist movements. To this end, the U.S. Army should contribute to humanitarian demining efforts and expand training in drug interdiction there.
    This is it? This is Russia and China on the move? LOL. This is the subtle give and take that goes on every year between local, regional, and world powers. Did Russia invade any countries we have defense agreements with?

    This is an opinion piece done by someone who does not like antiterrorism.

    Was the perp an Islamist? Don't you think sawing off some poor, defenseless woman's head with a knife is a bit extreme?
