  • Personally, I think Obama is wrong.

    ALL radical religious extremists you be addressed and guarded against, no matter the denomination.

    Religious zealots should never be able to commit crimes and use their religion, faith, good book in order to justify should such actions.

    Amoral actions should never be justified or mitigated by religion, ever.

  • I totally agree! I have said time and again we are in a religious war whether WE want to admit it or not. Until we see it for what it really is we don't stand a snowball's chance in hell of really winning it...we will just be able to stop some of the attacks.

  • We is it so hard to just say what is going on? They are Islamic and terrorist. They are terrorist because they have perverted their religion and are terrorist because of and in behalf of religion. We didn't make it up. We didn't call it incorrectly and it stuck. It is what it is. I agree that it will cause more harm that good.

  • I agree, also. Our refusing to call it what it is tells them that we are afraid of them and not willing to fight. That will make them less afraid of us, more daring and more bold. We are in more danger now than ever.
