    well either the extremist Islam declines or one day they will hit
    a US city with a chemical weapon and then the president
    has in revenge kill 100.000 of their civilians. Thats how humans
    operate.

    "Or we can press on. We apprise Syria to cease all sanctuary for al Qaedists and Iran to give up its nuclear program — or face surgical and punitive American air strikes. Such escalation is embraced by few, although many acknowledge that we may soon have few choices other than just that. But for now we can sum up the American plans as hoping that democracy spreads faster than Islamism, and thus responsible government will appear to ensure terrorists and WMD disappear."


    hands and those of our equally threatening domestic lefties by being too apologetic to Islam. I say, I know this will seem harsh but, call them what they are Murderers. Call sick portions of Islam what it is, dangerous to peace worldwide. In attempting to assuage Moslem opinion we have appeared weak and indecisive. That dog won't hunt. Imagine if this had been our position in WW II and you'll see my point. We have taken a middle course, invade Iraq, but don't attack Islamofascism in particular, that emboldens our enemies. The left is flat out foolish in thinking that we can go back to pre 9/11 isolationism in regards to Islamofacism. The next step is to DEMAND Iran abandon its nuclear program or face military reprisals. Ween ourselves of the Saudi oil teat, then take action against Saudi Arabia. If we do not commit ourselves completely to this fight then the enemy, who is commited, will win. Remember "Charlie didn't get much USO. He was dug in too deep or moving too fast. His idea of great R&R was cold rice and a little rat meat. He had only two ways home: death, or victory". What is our choice?
