    I cannot believe you actually said that. Not talking to some one is not inviting them to attack us.

    On second thought, I am going to give you credit that you just phrased that poorly. You are still wrong, but I don't think you are suggesting we are somehow asking to be attacked. I would in this case suggest that there are certain organizations we do not want to negotiate with except on our terms.

    I think we're asking to be attacked. Do you actually believe that Islamic extremists have the ability to see things from an American Liberal point of view?

    Those, "certain organizations", aren't interested in negotiating on anyone's terms.

    And, once again, The Taliban and Friends do not represent the entire Muslim world.

    I agree.

    The post of mine you responded to was intended to be tongue-in-cheek.

    I don't see all those billions of Muslims lifting a finger to do anything about, "The Taliban and Friends". Muslims hate America, hence the reason PBO didn;t want to be seen giving support to the Iranian protestors; hence the Iranian government trying to scapegoat the United States for helping the Iranian protestors. Don't forget, most of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudis.

    If that's the case, then I'm sorry I missed it.

    I imagine there's a few hippies, socially challenged college kids, and assorted other Uniterian fat chicks that might take exception to that statement.

    Then you aren't looking very hard. The Taliban gets chased out of nearly every Pakistani village where they try to set up camp. And when the Pakistani military can't or won't intervene, then the villagers do it themselves.

    That is the Iranian government, not the Iranian people. Uncle Napoleon is a long-running joke among the Iranian people which they constantly use to mock their own government's paranoia.

    And this proves what? Do 19 people represent the Muslim world? Do 19 people represent Saudi Arabia? Does Saudi Arabia represent the Muslim world?

    So Saudi Arabia, with a population of 24 million, represents the 1.5 billion Muslim population?

    Why doesn't Indonesia, Pakistan, or Bangladesh, countries with the largest population of Muslims, represent the Muslim population?
