    Thanks Sgt Rock, you've raised the bar on how to post on these forums like a neanderthal.

    This thread could very easily be changed to read:

    Should people be entitled to more/less rights based on their race/ethnicity?
    Or
    Is fear of terrorism a justified rationale to decrease an individuals rights based on race/ethnicity?

    Profiling can save your life, but you have to do it right, otherwise it can get you killed.

    I'm beginning to think I may be a "Racist, bigoted, womanizer", with good hair. "Miss Manners" seem to be running the show. forget about safety and security, just be sure and wash yer hands first. ---Most troublesome.

    Why is it bigoted to profile muslims? Who are we at war with? We are at war with Islamic terrorist. So we we should step up security at airports for non muslims? That is a waist of time, money and effort. I was not serious about the pork chop muslim detector. I am serious about the fact that not all muslims are terrorist but MOST terrorist are muslim. And we are at war with muslim terrorist.

    We should profile muslims just like Israel does. IMO there should be a seperate line for muslims at the airport. It only makes sense.

    Bottom line is we live in a dangerous time.....In the past we needed not worry about attacks on our mainland.......9/11/01 changed all that.....We now can be attacked anytime, anywhere.....Yes that scares the hell out of me......I am Irish Italian.....If Irish Italian people were performing acts of terrorism against America and profiling them would cut them down I would say hell yes.........go for it......I believe any group or nationality should feel the same way.......Like I said earlier whatever it takes to keep this country that I love safe............

    You have to profile Muslims......With few exceptions they are the ones performing the terrorist attacks................If a black man commits nd act of terrorism you profile blacks, not whites..........Its only common sense..........

    Also I like the example someone added if a man with one arm commits and act of terrorism you don't profile men with 2 arms............

    This is a capitol idea.
    Those security men who come in close contact with the public must be very highly trained and possess above average intelligence.

    Thru better education, this racism problem can be alleviated, this will take time..On the other side of the coin, the Islamics can do a lot to cure this problem, primary of which is to write a new Koran, replacing the old.
    No more hatred.

    Man, you need some counseling to get over your fears. I'm serious. Don't be a coward. You have nothing to fear, but fear itself. I have never encountered a veteran that was so afraid. Oh that's right, you were a supply clerk in the Navy.
