    You kidding me? Go after a certain group? Liberty would be down the Governments throat for it.
    They are already having a field day over stop and searches for youths.

    So our "enemy" is dressed like a Muslim? That seems like a very ill-conceived and ignorant view on things. What happens if a white male assassinates Obama? Will the "white man" then become the next windmill for you to chase?

    Well then we should certainly look into detaining all Middle Easterners as we did with AMERICANS of Japanese decent in World War Two. That seemed to be pretty effective.

    No, but the attacks they do make are very inconvenient and they have increased in intensity. It's what you do with the last of your lemmings if you are a dying power. Radicals within Islam are very short lived in the next decade. I can hear their moderates divorcing themselves of them more and more often in more obvious ways. They know we're not after every Muslim now but that we are going to get the ones that attack us.

    The attacks are much more daring, destructive, and over-extending. That smacks of a wounded dog.

    No. And to be honest, I am not certain what he is talking about unless it is Afghanistan and/or Iraq.

    No, but that's because of increased security...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    As has been mentioned "a certain group" has been identified as the perpetrators of 99.99% of the Terrorists atrocities against the Western world [in the context of the war on terror] Its not stereotyping, victimising, persecuting or any other victim orientated word that springs to mind, its common sense policy.

    Its sterotyping and singling out a group - Lets just call it what it is but i personally wouldn't really mind if i was stopped once in a while. I'd be happy to give a few minutes [no longer than that] to ensure the security of everyone else and me. Seems a small sacrifice. It would just all depend on the attitude of those who are the ones searching you.
