    C'mon, the next thing you'll tell me is that most illegals in Arizona look Hispanic. Racial profiling must end if we have any chance of the USA fading peacefully into oblivion.

    I am so sick of ignorant people, There are more Muslims in the world then Americans. If all Muslims are bad then we would be in a lot of trouble. Jihad does not mean "holy war", this is what the media would like you to believe. Jihad means to struggle basically for god. Educate yourselves rather then acting like sheep.

    Most of these terrorists get training in Pakistan. Pakistan should be brought down first. Kill terrorism at its root.
