    When are you going to get it through your thick heads that radical islamists want you dead??????
    well, statistically speaking it isn't a threat against your country, there is only one war in american history that they have entered on equal terms, that posed a threat to it, the war for independence. terrorist have never taken over a country without popular support, or without america giving them weapons...oh the irony...so america is under no real threat from terrorism, and there's no way they will get nukes

    Yes profiling should be used but not as the only tool. Profiling should be used as one of many tools to identify, limit and prevent threats on airlines. Just as with any other type of threat many tools should be used. Just like with the profiling of types of serial killers, profiling can be a valuable tool for airline terrorism. Profiling also encompases many factors besides skin color.

    Profiling does not just look at skin color.

    I guess I'm curious then how you would suggest Muslims be identified. Race/physical appearance is not necessarily an indicator of religion.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Better yet, we could do what we did with the japanese in WWII and put all arab/Americans in internment camps. Wasn't that something that you were advocating just about a month ago, Navy?
    Over the top hyperbole and your red herring logical fallacy shows your lack of any counter argument.

    You hit the nail on the head. That is exactly the reason we should have gone after Al Qaeda with everything we have instead of wasting time and resources in Iraq. Afghanistan and Pakistan are the real threat to our security and everyday Al Qaeda is getting closer and closer to Pakistani Nukes. Hopefully the surge in Afghanistan can accomplish what the last administration couldn't. I hope too much time hasn't been wasted.

    Tattoo a barcode on their foreheads. Scanning would save time and minimize inconvenience for the passengers.

    Nope, its not that effective and the consequences far outweight the benefits.

    But hey, I'm glad Navy is in favor of expanding government intrusion into our lives, expanding government power, expanding government size.

    Hey Navy, I guess I can start calling you my Left Wing Friend now with you being such a good socialist, wanting the government to have more control over our lives, right?

    Most do, that is what racial profiling is all about.....
    Also, Hicks was an enemy combatant, not a suicide bomber....
    Same with Lindh, John Walker not a bomber, just a traitor.....
