I agree completely.
The problem is, they play that shite off as everything is our fault since we are the "great satan". Oh and Israel. Because that's totally why they have sectarian violence and radical islam. Our fault.
Bull shite. They've ALWAYS had that. Now they just have a better propaganda machine for focusing the hate.
How much of their problems bleeding onto us are we supposed to accept based on 'well that's just how they are'?
One of the principals of government is you get what you settle for. If they can't handle their problems internally, and they condone and support attacks on us, how the hell is it not our right to make them pay for that? Lets get real here, the only reason they can continue to wage war on us is because we allow them to.
Would it not be better for all mankind to make it clear that you should keep your hands to yourself or accept the consequences? It's natural selection at work. And we could actually see something much closer to Carter's 'Peace in our Time'. Haven't had many problems with Germany and Japan in awhile have we?
This is a clash of cultures. One side or the other is going to win. Period. There won't be coexistence if we maintain the status quo. Your kids kids will still be wondering if they are going to one day have to deal with a terrorist attack. Why? Because we've allowed it.
Granted, we're pussies and do not have the political will to actually fight this fight until it's too late and they lay a serious lick on us. Then we'll go all reactionary and overreact then feel guilty about it for another few generations.
Would it not be better just to end it now? The amount of lives saved would certainly be a lot more in spite of the amount killed in the 'demonstration of resolve'.
The alternative is perpetual war.
