Just where does the ****ing line in the sand get drawn? Between the protest over the this koran burning where members of this so-called peaceful religion chanted 'death to Americans' and some POS Iman declaring that if we do not allow the mosque to be built near the ground of the 9/11 murders there will be 'retribution' from the radical side or Islam.
I see our nation seemingly cater to muslims in the hope that they will play nice with us eventually...BULL****.
Does anyone truly believe that they will play nice and tolerate us if we admit defeat to them and bend over backwards and give them whatever they ask for in the name of tolerance?
No one with a brain (that matters) believes that placating towards our enemies will make them love us. However stupid acts of extremism in the Chrisitian world merely excite extremism in the Muslm world. Our enemies are distinct. Focusing on them is what I would expect from a nation that supposedly is educated beyond the rattlesnake passing of backwoods church dumbasses. More of this crap and even the French will seem enlightened.

Radical Islam is merely a symptom and is ultimately, not the problem. The problem is that "radical" Islam is not "radical". We call it that to disenfranchise it and separate it from the politically correct "moderate" Islam.
Islam declared jihad and fought to spread Islam from 632 AD until 1699 AD. Over a thousand years. Was that "radical" Islam. The destruction of Israel is pretty recent. Obviously, until recently, there was no Israel. But prior to the establishment of the British Raj, most of the Indian sub-continent was ruled by the Mughal Emperor, a Muslim. India had been part of dar el Islam and Muslims joined in the Sepoy rebellion of 1857 with the stated intention of restoring India to dar el Islam.
So there is historical precedent to re-conquering land that was once Muslim.
So, wtf is "radical" Islam? The fact of the matter is, it is a part of Islam that has always existed because the Koran and Hadith contain so much to support it and this is a common bs misconception (1-3% are actively enganging in active jihad against the Dar al Harib)
In reality, the vast majority of religous (practicing) Muslims support active jihad either passively or actively (money) because it is the bedrock of what is Islam. First, it is 'uncreated' - it has (to a practicing Muslim) always existed, even before the alleged revelation to Mohammad and second...it is the literal word of Allah, in Allah's own language (Arabic) and therefore can not be questioned.
R2D2 was instructed to not give offense to Chewbacca by letting him win.
We can't afford even the perception that we're willing to surrender our hard won freedoms because we're afraid some extremists might get unhappy. That tells them not only that we're afraid, but we're paralzed and that will be as dangerous as pissing of the little maggots.
The whole rationale behind their attacks is that the West is weak and won't respond effectively to their attacks. Jimmy Carter's incompetence fueled this idea, the inadequate responses of later presidents, especially Clinton, confirmed this in their minds, and that we struck as hard as we did after 9-11 surprised them, but they've also been paying attention to our turncoat elements, our appeasing Chamberlains, our cowards, and our subversive elements that want the US to fail.
We now have an islamophile president who is deliberately seeking to destroy this nation's role as a world leader. He's a foreign policy disaster, he's an economic disaster, he's a constitutional disaster.
We have problems.
Appearing to bow to the threats of fanatics who hate us anyway will only cause more problems in the long run.
Wars are always rude.
And since both World Wars were between recognized sovereign nations and not any sort of an attempt to establish a splinter nation from a larger parent or to wrest control of a nation by inhabitants of that same country with differing political views, they were in no sense "civil" wars.
If you can't figure that much out, if you want to insist on polluting the thread with nothing more than a conspiracy theory, you need to understand that I ain't gonna waste my time on you until you grow up and post comments relevant to the topic of the thread.
You HAD to vote?Not Kerry. The choice was between a man who made decisions, right or wrong, and a man who couldn't make a decision at all. What does that make you? Never fault a man for having to vote for the man he disliked the least.
Um...no, you didn't.
I voted for neither of them, I voted Libertarian for the simple fact that even though some of their ideas are wrong, I wasn't going to vote for Bush, because he's a liberal, or Gore, because he's a fool and a liberal, or Kerry, because he's a fool, a liberal, and a gigolo.
No one forced you to vote for anything. You made your choice and now you're rationalizing it becaue you feel guilty.
Yes, you know my real life. After all, you've snooped my Facebook page and found my status as a CO in the Korean War.But even Bush knew the enemy was distinct. How you can't? Certainly you can't base **** on any real study or analysis. And certainly your life experience has never placed you in front of the actual enemy. You are running off decrepit hatreds and assumptions.
Then again, I don't have a Facebook page and Korea was before my time, but then again, someone calling themselves "sergeant" might mean he's a hybrid between old Beatles song about some lonely hearts and a soft drink.
So, you should probably can the blind sniping because all you're proving when you do that is that you can't support your position with reason.
This will probably get you a warning when someone who cares notices it. But you really need to work on supporting your positions with something besides testosterone and adrenalin.Fortunately, you are insignificant and are merely one of the faceless protected under those of us who have their heads firmly planted on top of our shoulders rather than up our asses.
