    The United States could have not hoped for a better development.

    This should wake up even the most die hard socialist government in Europe
    to the fact that a new crusade is needed. We might not fight under the cross
    but the enemy has not changed.

    Terrible for the Danes, but you are correct sarcasm. It sucks that it takes something like this to wake up some people to what evil is capable of.

    I'd like to be optimistic, but the only thing I am sure of is that it will still somehow be "Bush's fault"

    :rolleyes:

    WHO exactly is going to wake up? No doubt this is well-deserved retaliation for Denmark daring to allow criticism of the "religion of peace."

    Then it ain't freedom is it. The Vatican needs to shut their doors and pray they can be saved from these people, and stay TF out of politics..IMO

    How far will this go before the Pope picks up the sword?

    From Hobbits link: "In London, several hundred demonstrators gathered under heavy police security outside Denmark's embassy, shouting slogans to protest the publication of the drawings."

    On another thread there is Ted Rall. Maybe, since he speaks a language these folk understand we should commission him to do some cartoons on Islam. After publishing his name, address, and real phone number of course. Any bets that none of the basic left of the aisle will equate this with suppression of free speech? Instead it will spin as "inflammatory".

    I do believe the pot is about to boil over.

    I just can't figure out why our official postion on this is bent over at the waist holding our ankles.

    Perhaps we are holding back to give Europe a chance to see what we are really up against.
