    Actually, I already did. And now I'm getting a certain song from Chicago stuck in my head:

    Islam also has a long history of tolerance and peaceful coexistence and stuff. Reactionary elements seize power in certain times and places, and liberal elements do in others. The current round of reactionaries is in response to the Cold War, and while it draws inspiration from previous ones, it's its own unique set of arseholes.

    World wide, the death toll continues to climb-whats clear is that the presence of islam often leads to violence, in fact many of the worlds current military conflicts involve islam in a significant way. We live in an international world, where relations between nations matter, and where many value a free society.

    Is radical Islam compatible with a free society?


    No more than radical far-right evangelical Christianity is compatible with a free society.

    That was almost 70-years ago and we ended up using nukes. I don't believe that we're going to win the war on terror with nukes.

    You know the difference. Japan is a country. Radical Islam is not confined to a single country. We cannot declare war on an ideology. Bombing in a declared war works because it can break the backbone of a nation. Atomic bombs broke the Japanese backbone. In a war on radical ideology, there is only a fraction of people that see themselves as enemies of the US, but every time we kill an innocent civilian that number climbs. By killing people we do not break the backbone of the radical Islamists, we only strengthen it.

    Every person that died, was wounded, etc. in G.W. Bush's un-necessary war in Iraq has relatives, friends and fellow tribesmen who are looking for some pay-back.
