    For example, if someone kills children in Pakistan because they are angry that Pakistan is sending a military sweep through the North - well, how can we support the Pakistani's continuing or expanding operations in the north? Can we bump the people associated with this cell to the top of the kill list to make sure that not only do they and every one of their friends die in explosions, but that everyone who doesn't die gets a real good look at what happens to your 'cause" when you target children?
    Targetting them after the fact has no connection to why they did it.

    Wipe them out and them wipe out who takes their place.

    Sooner or later those people will not want to die for nothing.

    ..... I remember what happened to AQI members in Fallujah after they started targeting police officers' families. Folks on boards right now hollering about how getting slapped or made to stand in a stress position constitutes "torture" have no idea. Ugly.

    Enjoy Reading. Understanding the enemy's dreams so that you can publicly brutally crush them beyond hope of redemption is indeed quite useful.

    They're not dying for nothing. They are dying for something. Manage to fix the situation so that their violence threatens that something, and you're fighting the generational war smart.

    In the US, religious extremists often tend to present their political lean as conservative, and conservatives are often expected to by highly religious. I dunno why, there should be no connection to a political ideology and religion.

    Radical Islam is a political ideology bonded to a religion, and one could argue leftist enviro-terrorists are the same.

    I have never advocated for tighter gun control. I have several pistols. I also have a CHL and shoot frequently. I even reload my on ammunition. You really should have looked before making this uninformed claim. All progressives are not anti-gun. Remember, I live in Texas.

    Sad, isn't it. Dead children in Pakistan, killed in retribution toward the Pakistani government and he wants to blame democrats.

    The Taliban and the atrocities they carried out are terror. Would you have the Pakistani government do nothing to address groups capable of carrying out these sort of attacks?
