    Nope it does matter, you were wrong, he was not a member of a Militia, and what about "Ted" Kaczynski, what about bill Aryers are they not left wing extremists?

    Then you'll get mowed under by the rising tide of religious fundamentalist terrorism.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    In other words, when you start saying, "They started it!", first make sure that they really were the ones who started it.
    Oh, if you want to go back in history, you have to go back to post-WWI where the west simply drew a bunch of line son a map and declared this to be the Middle East. Then they took a bunch of ignorant Bedouin in Saudi Arabia, said they needed someone to negotiate with and declared them the ruling family. Yes, there have been tons of problem, lots of mistakes, but you can't go back and fix them, you have to live in the now. How do we solve these problems now. Be sure to let us all know your solutions without whining about how awful the past was, won't you?

    Question. When you are looking for ONE guy amoung 100,000, what do you do? Harass and disrupt all 100,000 with 10,000 troops hunting that one guy? Or do you send in 10 guys, with lose morals, and bribe money?

    let me ask you somthing

    if you were a fighter pilot who shot down an enemy plane, would you also shoot at the pilot who ejected from the plane and was parachuting down to the ground?

    If I knew that pilot would just get back in another plane and come back to kill more people, damn straight.

If we stop bothering them, they won't stop. The only thing that will stop them is the death of every single extremist Muslim on the planet. Before doing that, I'd rather try something a little less drastic. Nothing less drastic than killing their families has been shown to work.
