So you agree that they need to be “stopped?” I mean, you are acknowledging there is a problem?
I don’t think Tim was serious about killing all Muslims. He was making the point that UNlike us THEY wish to kill ALL the Jews indiscriminately and all Americans for that matter.
I am talking about radical Islamic extremists. Who, by the way, are supported by the “average peaceful Muslim” financially more than you think.
We have been “stopping them” in Iraq and Afghanistan the same way we stopped Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. I was very happy with the Bush doctrine of unapologetically making no distinction between terrorists and the countries that harbor them. It was a brilliant strategy that provided the Jihadist with the opportunity to die for his cause at the same time we ridded the world of him, in a place and time of our choosing.
When we took the hard line stance on Islamic terrorists that we did after 9/11 we did not have even one terrorist attack on our soil for 7 1/2 years. Now that we have started to apologize for defending ourselves and “submit” to Islam, the Jihadists are on the march again. Here.
I agreed with no such thing. I was asking what you would do to “stop” Islam.
There’s been another terrorist attack on the US since the Dems took office? I haven’t heard of one. A half-dozen plots exposed and thwarted and one loony who shot up a militery base, but I hardly think that can be chategorized as a terrorist “attack”. Loonies shoot up places all the time (Post Offices and MacDonalds’ seem to be the target of choice, but not always).
And though you draw a distinction between Muslims In General vs. Radical Islamic Extremists (as do I), your fellow travelors sadly do not: The only good Muslim is a dead Muslim, in their view.
We have neither the money nor the manpower to “stop” Islam; look at the time and treasure we’ve spent in two small countries on the ass-end of the world. Now project that time and treasure out to include a military intervention in, say, Indonesia, the most populous–and one of the most extreme–Muslim nations in the world.

The Fort Hood shooting, the panties bomber, the Times Square Bomber, The Arkansas recruiting center shooting… If the attacker in yelling praises to Allah while shooting people, I consider them to be a terrorist. You may say the panties bomber was thwarted but only due to his own incompetence. It was this incident specifically that resulted in the unconstitutional search and seizure policies the TSA have instituted since. Freeborn innocent Americans marching naked for inspection by government officers is not freedom. (If you won’t march naked you get molested.)

I agree completely with your assessment of the two countries we are in. But I disagree with the necessity of being there. It is infinitely better to kill terrorists in their own back yard than in ours.
As for not having the finances or manpower you are half right. We no longer have the finances. That’s just one more reason not to spend 4 trillion dollars in 3 years. You won’t get me to disagree that the Bush Adm. and republican congress overspent too, but I will disagree that that the War on Terror was the main cause for it.
THE main responsibility of our Federal Gov’t is national defense. If we are out of money what does that tell our enemies? I think it tells them now’s the time. It is my humble opinion that we should be requiring payment from the countries liberated for our expenses. Payment in oil would be fine. Afghanistan could pay in mineral resources.
