    Well stated,

    But Muslims tend to deny that the perpetrators of Charlie Hebdo killings are not the word of God, and that the writings are only a matter of interpretations. Either way the deed gets done and you have religious people distancing themselves from it, just like politicians do.

    Chil mos are not safe? Is "Chil mos" the latest slang for pedo's?

    Also, what exactly do you want to know about my disagreement? Whether I disagree and disapprove pedophilia activity? Whether I disagree that they are safe in prison? Whether I disagree with liberals and how they (according to your post) try to liberate pedo's asap? Or whether I disagree with the severety of the penalties issued to them?

    No, I do not disagree about them being unsafe anywhere, and I am glad that is so. Further, I am not satisfied with the severity of the punishment neither. It should be the death penalty for them.

    It sounds like, from the little reading I did, that the actions are illegal. It's a law enforcement issue. If local LE isn't dealing with it it becomes a Federal issue. What's your point? None of this is legal. It's not like Sharia law applies in Dearborne.

    No way of avoiding that, but broadly speaking, I think most people should be able to agree on a definition of radicals encompassnig people who want their ideology forced on other people regardless of consent.
    Ok, that does it! I waste Professor Plum with the lead pipe.

    That works and since doing that legally in the United States is seemingly impossible it really devolves to use of violence.

    You're the only one who has referenced that.
    ISIS arose after America decided to topple a dictatorship that they facilitated in the first place (you know, by arming Saddam in order to create havoc for Iran).
    ISIS was formed in 2006 once they knew Coalition troops would eventually withdrawn from Iraq.
    The people who orchestrated the invasion knew it would be a quagmire, and that after Saddam was defeated that Iraq would splinter into pieces without almost indefinite American presence.
    Yes, without a base in Iraq the results could be predicted, but few at that time knew that an obscure BHO would one day determine US foreign policy.
    BHO Obama pulled out, sure, but Malaki was under the Iranians' thumb from the very beginning (way before Obama). They explicitly stated that there was to be NO American presence. Where do you think Malaki was living for the past few decades?
    Malaki was unimportant. The key is that Obama promised to end the war in Iraq, which was certainly misleading. Of course the war in Iraq, and the subsequent slaughter, still continues while creating ever larger problems.
    He said kill all the terrorists, and if more arise from bombing inevitably bombing many innocents, kill them too. Sounds like something approaching genocide to me.
    Killing those who are at war with you is not "Genocide" no matter what it sounds like to you. Is killing terrorists is a problem for you? You might be in the minority with this opinion, outside of the Muslim community.
    I'm saying that bombing terrorists indefinitely is stupid, since it perpetuates the problem it seeks to solve. America doesn't have enough bombs to solve the problems of the Middle East.
    Certainly they do and using them should be one of the alternatives in dealing with terrorists and those who harbor them. Those who do allow terrorists in their countries also have a decision to make.

    So its Obama's fault for not keeping troops there illegally and in perpetuity.

    Malaki was unimportant.
    He was the leader of Iraq. I guess that's unimportant from a neoconservative prospective.

    Killing those who are at war with you is not "Genocide" no matter what it sounds like to you. Is killing terrorists is a problem for you?
    Killing terrorists is a big problem for me when it also causes the deaths of vast number of innocents. Violence begets violence.
