    "Funded by the Saudi kingdom" is rather broad. What exactly does that mean? Is it coming directly out of government coffers? Out of the personal accounts of religious ruling family members?

    I would be very surprised if the government were directly funding this. I would be much less surprised to find out that individuals are directing their zakat to AQ and AQ-affiliated groups.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Oh, and putting terrorist on trial here is a good thing. If you commit a crime here you deserve a fair trial, no matter who you are. It's in the Constitution, so it has to happen.
    Increased use of coal and nuclear based power would make us energy independent, we are a net exporter of coal and have less nuclear facilities than France.

    I'm all for nuclear power, it's rather safe, and the pollution it produces are quite less than most other fuels.

    Nuclear power is fine, for electrical currents; coal is not energy efficient in terms of longterm viability and risk to human life and health, nor it is a suitable replacement for automobiles and other oil-centered mediums. Nuclear power shares that weakness.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    The lack of nuclear power is not because of liberals or conservatives, but because if of NIMBY. When it gets put to a vote the majority do not want nuclear power plants near them because of archaic stereotypes of nuclear power plants.

    I for one would not only welcome nuclear power plants near me but also spent furl rod reprocessing plants as well.
