    Multiracial and multi-religious societies can survive. They have what is called hybrid vigor. Each new flavor is added to the melting pot and infuses the whole to create something new and united. I have seen this in my own bi-racial family.

    Multicultural societies are different than multiracial and multi-religious societies. Multicultural elements never go into the melting pot. They instead maintain their divisions. Division produces disunity and separation. That is what Merkel of Germany, Cameron of Britain and Sarkozy of France have in effect said.

    The All-American Boy Anwar al Awlaki is the poster child of multiculturalism. Born on American soil. Raised on American soil. Attended American public schools. The natural objects of his affection should have been fellow Americans.

    But that didn't happen. Why? Is it because he wasn't assimilated? Is it because he never developed any modicum of a shared consciousness with fellow Americans?

    Anwar al Awlaki and US Army Major Nidal Hasan are examples of the failure of multiculturalism and cultural relativism. There will be more evidence of such failures as time passes. Multiculturalism will increasingly be on the defensive.

    It's not speculation. Speculation means you have no idea or basis. I have a very clear idea, based on reports on and research. It is an educated assumption, one of that most people, from the military, to the diplomatic core (of which I am a part), to the intelligence community, have reason to believe basically true. No it has not been announced, because there is no body... but the intelligence community has assumed for a while that he is dead. It's insider information, not a news bit that I can provide you evidence for.

    You want to be spoon fed a nice tidy newsbit and until you see it, you're going to believe that the war on terror still has anything to do with Bin Laden. I'm not being rude, I am being factual, both about the reality of this war and about your obvious disposition to it. Sorry that you are so easily offended.

    No, Anwar al-awlaki is something much more sinister then evidence of 'failures of multiculturalism'... and you might want to consider how long anyone was aware of the fact that there was a discussion going on between the two.

    ALSO, look at the underwear bomber, awlaki was involved in that too... BUT, the eyewitnesses there describe "a sharp dressed man" that got the bomber on the plane without ANY ID.

    Well, I couldn't say for certain whether bin laden is dead, in the 'spytalk' column of the washington post, they talked about faking at least one bin laden video using their staff members, as well as filming a 'gay Hussein'... SO, I don't put any real credibility in really any of the video / audio tapes on the subject.

    I do agree with you that what the 'war on terror' is all about is VERY DIFFERENT from what it was sold as to the american people.

    Example : - Iraq was selling TOO MUCH oil through back room deals and was keeping prices artificially low (to the extent that Iraq represents an influence on overall price)
    - Taliban banned heroin poppies and nearly eradicated the entire crop... the numbers I've heard were as much as 16TIMES previous records since 2001.
    - In the US, there's been a drastic increase in 'police / security presence'... with legal justification for much more then is being currently done.

    That said, it's pretty much established fact that bin laden was funded since as far back as the 80's, covertly through the ISI, or other organizations... and anwar al-awlaki has reportedly been wined and dined at the pentagon in the months following 9-11, AND THEN since that time he's gone from a muslim cleric to a terrorist organizer... and NOBODY seems to care enough to make the connection.
