    If not for long range missiles and nukes, we could consider leaving these places alone to fight among themselves. The extreme Islamists are driving the outcomes in all of these nations and we are failing to set an example of a better way. The computer literate among them listen to the dialogue between our parties and read the way we talk to each other on tv and in these forums. They want something better, but the moderates are feeling isolated, the extremists are getting intern’l help. The ‘liberals’ and secular Syrians who have tried to work with the US will be the first to be invited to move here. It happened after Vietnam and when other allies became opponents.
    The worst part of this is Muslims, like Christians, have members in positions of power who, if they could, would be severely tempted to “help” God/Allah by starting Armageddon. There are others who, believing in nothing, would cheerfully start Armageddon just because they don’t see why the rest of the humans should go on with their lives once “I’M” gone.
    It is a burden on my spirit, but there comes a time when a civilized nation needs to demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are not to be trifled with. This can’t be done with a fencing foil, it has to be heavy handed, and very destructive. 5000 cruise missles devastating every piece of military hardware and infrastructure Syria has could have a chilling effect on Iran’s adventurism. The US military is not a fencing foil, or an arrow. The US military is Thor’s Hammer, Mjolner.
    We can’t ignore what is happening, but we need to do better than we are.

    “Peaceful” Christians have killed a bunch of folks in the name of religion too. Just sayin’.

    Republicans need to avoid difficult policy areas like foreign affairs. Or economics. Outside their skill set.

    They should stick to things they can handle – banning abortions, re-closing ACORN, etc.

    How did we get from being peaceful to Homosexuality. The left says homosexuality doesn’t matter but yet the left is the first to bring it up.

    Tell you what show that all over Baghdad and if you live I will admit I was wrong!

    Yes and in recent years who have killed far more, Christians or Islamists? Most of the dead Islamists in the past thirty years have been killed by other Muslims.

    Is that the kind of fracture where the bone sticks out of the skin and blood is squirting from a severed artery?

    Yeah the IED’s had nothing to do with it. Sorry it is no where close to that number even after 10 years. Tell me where did you get that info?

    You forget Hitler who only gave lib service to Christianity. He called it a mistake. Stalin, killed far more and China as well of their own people.

    Night-Gaunt49: There were Christians in Japan too. One of my father’s seminary classmates ran a school in Hiroshima. The largest Christian population at the time was in a town called Nagasaki. The largest church in Asia was “ground zero” there. One bomb test on a central business district, the other on a residential neighborhood. “…humanities without reason and science without morals.” – C.P. Snow
