    We can. We just don't have political leaders with the balls to do what has to be done.

    And, no, we don't have to commit genocide to accomplish that; but it does call for alot more violence towards the bad guys.

    So what, if she blamed the downward acceleration of a falling body on the force of gravity, would you accuse her of making excuses for the falling body?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    If that's your cute way of blaming Obama, who's making excuses now? We had 8 years of Bush, most of which were tied up in these wars and a heavily Republican Congress had his back. Why no definitive result before he left office, hmm?

    Terrorist bombings in Sweden or anywhere in Europe aren't America's problem.

    Our problems are right here at home. Remember Nidal Hasan was a jihadi who infiltrated our own Army and murdered thirteen US soldiers at Ft. Hood last year. The greatest danger to Americans is from fellow Americans.

    The questions people are avoiding here have more to do with how many believe what they do and the influence of the religion in forming those views.

    If enough within a religion believe in a certain precept or action, it is no longer a case of a few nutjobs, but the religion, itself. Even if an attitude is not dominant, but very prevalent, the religion can still play a part in the formation of such.

    An apologetic stance would be one that attempted to minimize either the prevalence of a belief or the magnitude of the expression of such. Apologists for Islam routinely indulge in both, vastly undersestimating the widespread nature of particular beliefs as well as forming specious moral equivalencies between terrorist and other actions and the beliefs of other religions. I'm not saying Arcana is doing this, but there are plenty who do.

    Of course it is America's problem. It is a world problem.

    Islamists are already changing the nature of the dynamic between Western Europe and America, driving a wedge between us by manipulating Western European perceptions. Their goal is a totalitarian state governed by Islam, and they see Europe as a potential springboard towards such. They are well organized, find strength through common purpose, and are adept at exploiting situations to their advantage. The actual terrorist acts are just the tip of a bigger iceburg, as the terrorism is only a means to an end. It is that end we should be focussing on, as none of us stand alone here. Sure, the strength of the anti-Americanism indulged in by so many might make you want to turn your back on them, but some in Europe are starting to wake up. The Dutch and Danes are not as disposed towards mindless apologia as they used to be, and maybe the Swedes will start to figure things out, too. Sure, people don't understand the threat of totalitarianism until it is right on top of them, and all the social conditioning and denial can be tough to overcome, but I think we should ALL be fighting Islamism. It is the biggest threat the world has faced in quite some time.

    Too late. Europe is lost to us. Time to come home and focus on our own problems. Let the Euros deal with Islamism. It will tire the Islamists out by the time they devour the Euros.
