    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    And if you really want to talk about religion, take a wild guess what religion has killed the most people in the name of religion throughout human history. Here's a hint - it ain't the Muslims.
    No he was kicked out of his Militia before OKC.
    Of course lets talk about the dark ages and ignore recent events because you are losing the debate.

    maybe the reason it has not been tried is because the idea flies in the face of everything we stand for.

    You're quite wrong. If you were somehow able to suddenly kill every extremist Muslim on the planet, the very act of doing so would radicalize ten times that number overnight.

    Ask yourself how many terrorists come from the rich Arab states where there's a high standard of living? Like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait and such? And what about the largest Muslim nation on the planet - Indonesia? Yes, they have some problems too, but not so much in relative terms.

    There are some terrorist who come from the countries mentioned above, but relatively few. Most of their foot soldiers come from the poor, the disaffected, the downtrodden. And if you'll think about it, that's how we get a lot of people in our own armed forces - the poor, downtrodden, and disaffected. Don't tell me this isn't the case - been there, done that, got the retired AFID in my wallet.

    You will never, ever, EVER get rid of terrorism. Ever. But if you want to minimize it, help bring their nations up to first-world status...and all of a sudden the hordes of radicals becomes a trickle. That's how it's done...and short of worldwide genocide, the ONLY way it can be done.

    That's a false choice. There are not hordes of terrorists circling our borders.
