While I agree that nuclear retaliation is the only way to go, you guys seem to forget an alternate scenario.

If the terrorists made the threat to detonate nuclear devices in US cities, I'm pretty sure we could prevent that from ever happening if we threaten to nuke Muslim holy sites. That might be the only thing that could prevent them from doing that.
This is exactly what I said in a previous post. I believe that the better good would come from moderates turning in radical Imams who are doing the recruiting. It will have to be addressed by the true Muslims to crack down on friends and neighbors if they advocate murder.

one question though: do you want to be remembered forever as the generation who destroyed those monuments? i mean, they are sacred for a reason.... i dont think threatening to bomb them would have any effect on the terrorists, other than to them off even morel their twisted brand of religion means they will still be devout even without the sacred locations.

No, it won't make an impression on the terrorists whatever is done. I would pin my hope on the real Muslims to come forward and rid the world of these people forever. By the way, we weren't warned when they sucker punched every country in which they are allowed to spread terror. I revere life much more than any monument in the World. Obviously, they show no such reverence for any of the religions of the World and since they bomb their own Mosques, for their own either.

Do you want to be known as the generation that allowed it's citys to go up in plumes of smoke and fire and do nothing.

So how many of the worlds 1-1.3 billion muslims are terrorists, how many of them do you think you can justify killing and more importantly how many of those who are moderates would remain moderate after the event.

Unfortunately I think this congressman has validated Samual Johnsons* famous quote
"It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than open one's mouth and remove all doubt."

* I have no doubt that someone will try and attibute this quote to Abe Lincoln but Lincolns quote is a little different and given that Johnson 1709-1784 was dead a good 25 years before Lincoln was born I think johnson gets the credit.

Only cowards count the enemy before the charge, it's much easier to count the bodies later. Victory belongs to the courageous.

I don't care what they said at Nanking. I care about what they said at D-day and all other just conflicts. You seem to see the dark side of everything and I dwell on hope of peace and tranquility, but there is a price. Cowards die many deaths, the valiant taste of death but once.
