    If there is anything radicalizing the young Muslims here,it's our foreign policy. Our unwarrated invasions of both Iraq and Afghanistan is a terrible affront to the vast majority of Muslims worldwide. Besides,Peter King wants to score political points with the American public.

      Thank you,Cesar. That is a very good post above,although a lot of right-wing idiots don't agree. We must excuse these people for their ignorance. Evidently,they've seen too many John Wayne movies.

      As a Tea Partier Red,I totally agree. Like you say,these people have no right to live on this earth. But then again,didn't Adolf Hitler say the same thing about the Jews? It seems like he did.

    Sorry folks, I didn't post the above. The "invasion" of Afganistan was a response to 9/11. I am glad we went there. Some people are too IGNORANT to see this. My only regret is the loss of good lives on both sides due to extremists.

      @Cesar, I absolutely agree with you. We have the right to attack any country around the world that give safe haven to Terrists or Pirates to do us harm.

      Yea,I totally agree with both of you like a true,ignorant Tea Partier would. We need to have troops around the world or else how are we going to push others around? But what do I know? I'm just an ignorant Tea Partier!

    A generation of unbelievers. Even as God turns his hand, we still stand neighbor against neighbor. The hand writing is on the wall but the blind still don't see. (Question)What is the outcome of the evil and wicked behavior of mankind, not by race nor color? (Answer)Tsunamis, earthquakes, wars and wars, hurricans, tornadors, and famine. We stand at the beginning of woes. Now curse the messenger but the message is still the same.

      You're right.G. Being at war with Islam is indeed wicked behavior but the right-wing thugs in Washington see it as big business. These above disasters that you mentioned are a sign of the times so your message is quite correct. Thank you.
