Sterling, all the government needs to do is borrow more money from China and tuck a few more billion into the creases of those aid packages headed to these "unhappy" countries. Come on, they're our friends...what's a few more billion between friends so they can buy ammunition to kill us with?
Americans killing Americans is terrible, but every country on earth has the problem of countrymen killing fellow countrymen in normally one-on-one killings...it's called murder. There has been murder since the time of Cain and Able (just so no one is confused, I'm a follower of Jesus Christ and believe in God's Holy Word as being infallible. Yes, I'm one of those. :)). It is easy to see that these muslim countries are unifying against the United States...some of the people in these countries might would kill each other under certain conditions but most of them are now unified in their blood-letting hatred and intent to kill citizens of the United States, the country itself, and friends of the United States. They have a common goal...our destruction.
Non-muslims are considered infidels by muslims...*their* holy book tells them we are. According to "the world" we are supposed to be tolerant of them, yet their intolerance of us is casually overlooked by "the world". Their intolerance of us goes to the point of desiring to kill me, my wife, my kids, and grandkids if we don't bow to *their* desires....*their* holy book lays it out plainly that if we don't convert they are to kill us. Many people say islam is a religion of peace...why then does *their* holy book command them to kill us for not converting?
No, the hatred of these muslims against the United States and their killing of Americans out of hatred has nothing to do with Americans killing Americans in this country. I believe that what we are seeing is the beginning of a war that this world has never seen the likes of. We just thought Iraq and Afghanistan were/are drawn out conflicts. When these muslim countries, many of which have recently moved from dictatorships to radically controlled governments, begin to get their act together and reap the revenue from some of their oil deposits we may very well see terrorist groups that are better equipped than our own military and intelligence communities. Their soldiers seek death and martyrdom. The problem with wars since the Korean "conflict" is that there hasn't been clearly defined "front lines"...no "lines drawn in the sand". But, thankfully, these places with no well defined front lines have been restricted to small areas of the world. With the financing that these terrorists will have, the entire world will become the war zone. It's hard, too, to fight an army that actually seeks death...our logic of family and self preservation cannot comprehend their motives and beliefs.
The shooter at Fort Hood wasn't a terrorist...the attack on Americans in Libya was a demonstration "gone bad"...come on, when will somebody with authority use some good, old-fashioned common sense and patriotism to run this country and call an ace an ace and a spade a spade?
