    It is an Islamic state. It is an Arab state. Just about 100 percent of the population is Islamic. Where's your confusion? Who wants to prevent international sympathy towards of terrorists and their supporters? If people need coerced into identifying an obvious enemy than they were always the enemy anyway. International crocodile tears don't concern me. In fact, they can do as those Sunni Msulims did over Iraq and travel to their deaths if they care that much. But something tells me that criticizing American activity of any kind is usually the goal of the international "sympathizers." If you've noticed, America has a very long history of dismissing global opinion as insignificant. Global opinion didn't lead us to European wars until we chose to intervene. Global opinion didn't keep us out of Vietnam. Global opinion didn't keep us out of Kosovo. Global opinion didn't keep us out of Afghanistan. Global opinion didn't keep us out of Iraq. Why should we start caring now?

    America is in this for America. It's only because of our sense of morality and personal national image that the rest of the world benefits. And if you truly think that America is like the rest, than consider that our power could have had us forceably and brutally dominating this world long ago. Allying with Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union or China would surely guarantee global domination over the rest instead of this "hands-across-the-western-world" illusion we allow people to believe in.

    The whole Middle East is going down. Birth rates are going up. Fresh water is exponentially a concern. And an entire region relies almost entirely upon a natural resource that is drying up. Either they "evolve" and educate properly or become a slaughter ground as they emerse deeper and deeper into Islamic fanaticism. Clock's ticking.

    I don't understand the absolute ignorance into these matters people have. Perhaps it's my military background that make these things a focus while others were concerned with Monika Lewinsky/Bill Clinton escapades.

    It was later into the Clinton administration that President Clinton was trying to inform people about a man named Osama Bin Laden. Also, throughout his presidency, President Clinton had bombed Iraq 4 separate times. The last time even involved the high-and-mighty French in 1999. However, General Zinni reports in his book that in 1999 he was given targets that did not seem appropriate to WMD locations. When he asked about these targets he was told that "these are possible WMD threats."

    When he Osama Bin Laden released his justification letter after 9/11 to the American people, he stated that the "starving children of Iraq" and "western presence in the holy land" was an offense to Islam by the U.S. Was he right? I would say that it was also an offense to what we are supposed to stand for.

    By 2002, the White House, the Pentagon, and the military was fed up with our 11 year UN mission to contain a dictator that should be rotting under the ground. In 2003, we launched the mission to rid ourselves of this prick once and for all.

    Taking out Hussein was not "essential" to the poorly named War on Terror. That was all BS for the morons who can't understand things beyond their DirectTV.

    Why not other "horrendous and more dangerous dictators?" Because other dictators weren't our twelve year mission coming to an end. What other dictator belonged to us for twelve years? What other dictator brutalized under our watchful eye for a despicable UN "food-for-oil" exchange? What other dictator invaded two neighboring countries and was a constant thorn in a region where the entire world receives oil? What other dictator was used as a justification for 9/11?

    As a bonus, we get to seed a "democracy" in the heart land of terrorist hell. Removing him (12 years late) in exchange for another dictator was not an option.

    What I find absultely humerous is how people insist that our problem is merely a matter of dealikng with a few "rogues" of Islam. People have this sense that one Muslim nation has nothing to do with another Muslim nation. With Islamic fanatics turning into extremist terrorists with ease in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Egypt, Iraq, and any other nation where Muslims make a significant number of the population, this is clearly a regional issue and not a single nation's problem.

    I wonder how much more have to die in the name of Islam before the Muslim armies of these nations begin to mobilize with the West against what they are calling "perverts of Islam." Until they do, this will continue to be a "war against Muslims" to their masses.

    Obama's "isolated extremist" comment proves how out of touch with reality he is and how he views the war against radical Islam as merely a criminal affair. The man is clueless and endangering us all with his idiotic view of things that bear no relation to reality.

    It is so clearly obvious that Barack Obama's is directly at fault because of his failure to personally stop the man from entering the plane. There are no arguments against that. It is fact.

    wow
    and so it goes...

    How about bearing this relation to reality...

    Look up how many white people have killed white people for religious, financial, or ANY other purposes right here in the US since ummm......yesterday.

    I'm more worried about "mere criminal affairs" every day in my neighborhood than about a MINOR MINOR MINOR MINORITY of people who WANT to kill us.

    reality check
    and so it goes...

    It is so clearly obvious Obama doesn't have the slightest clue what we face in radical Islam. He is like a little child with fairy tale fantasies in his head while being blind to the reality that surrounds him. He stands up and continues to tell us that 1+2=2 making a complete jackass of himself in the process when later he has to acknowledge that in fact it equals three and we say, very good moron, but can you learn a little faster before hundreds more people are murdered???
