    Well yes there is in that your making Al-Qaedas job extreamly easy. Like i said all they have to do is send a lighter skinned Muslim through while airport security are busy searching a Lebanese Christian.

All Al-Qaeda would have to do is focus its recruitment on lighter skinned Muslims.
    So far, how many non-Arab Muslims have killed Americans?

    The idea that the enemy will justchange tactics because we're onto them isn't an excuse to do nothing.

    Wells theres the Taliban for one thing..... Still even if you focus on Arabs theres still alot of variety in how people look. Yassar Arafat was quite light-skinned for example.

    Didn't say to only profile, but LOOK at who has been giving us hell? You don;t fight a war only with bullets, you use everything, and when one group is giving you hell, you should take special interest in that group. They've earned it.

    In a sane world we wouldn't be blamed, instead... THEY would be pissed at those in their community wreaking havoc on their lives.

    But we're not living in a sane world.We're living in a PC world that positions us to get our troops and civilians killed.

    So, you're saying that doing nothing is an effective response?

    He had a nice name... didn't sound too Nigerian... Tip Off!

    He would look good in Gitmo Orange.
    I say he gets what he wished for... minus the civilian casualties.

    No i said that racial profiling is counter productive, as gloriously un PC and -oh-so-controverisal as it is. Perhaps improved metal detection would be start.

    Newsflash: metal detectors don't detect explosives.

    And, no, I don't agree that racial profiling is counter productive. On Septemeber 11th 2001, some racial profiling would have saved thousands of American lives. Hurt some one's feeling, or save 3,000 lives? Not much of a brain teaser making that choice.
