I as well as a lot of quiet Americans are getting tired of global disrespect. As the Arabic culture knows, strength is to be respected and feared. That is why their laws prey on the weak without mercy. Society is getting fed up with their antics and they need to adjust to modern living and quit suppressing those in their culture who wish to respectively experiment with new lifestyle changes.

When we see masked men waving guns and screaming or kidnapping and cutting off heads it gains no support for their cause yet distances them from aceiving concern for their cause. I support the soldiers who put underwear on the terrorist heads. I think that the soldiers should of sent them to America and integrated them into prison society. If those men who put towels over their face think they are tough, they don't intimidate me. It further strentghens my belief that we need to fight a more technological war. Save allied force lives by evacuating women and children from known terrorist neighborhoods then bomb the bejezus out it. I frankly don't give a red cent what the world thinks as long as our enemies know America has had enough, we won't explain anything just kick butt and take names. Remember, when you mess with the bull you get the horns.

Well Justin, this is all very cute but highly ignorant. Let's break down your little rant bit by bit, shall we?

"I as well as a lot of quiet Americans are getting tired of global disrespect. As the Arabic culture knows, strength is to be respected and feared."

You are not quiet at all. You are a very outspoken young man. There is no such thing as "the Arabic Culture," little Justin. If you read a bit more about history and world affairs you'd probably know this. There are several nations of Arabs with various expressions of culture. As for "strength is to be respected and feared" -- this may be so but ABUSE is not respected and is often returned with even greater force. And that weakens our Security. ...

"That is why their laws prey on the weak without mercy."

Oh, I see. Now could you specifically pick out the laws, the sources and the countries of origin to which you are alluding? Now remember Justin, you decided to label this as "The Arab Culture" so they MUST be from Arab countries. It's really funny when people like yourself who have no clue what the hell they're talking about watch a news broadcast or two and suddenly deem themselves experts, making outlandish claims like this which have no basis in reality.

"Society is getting fed up with their antics and they need to adjust to modern living and quit suppressing those in their culture who wish to respectively experiment with new lifestyle changes."

That was very nicely written, Justin. Now back it up. Whose "society" is getting fed up? And about what "antics" are you speaking? What constitutes "modern living" in your mind? Would it be teenage pregnancy? Perhaps it is an Economic System with NO gold standard? Or do you mean the allowance of women to vote, which existed among the Muslims (beginning with the Arab Muslims) about a thousand years before it did in our nation? Which of these would mark the "new lifestyle changes" with which these people of "the Arabic culture" would want to "respectively experiment?"

"When we see masked men waving guns and screaming or kidnapping and cutting off heads it gains no support for their cause yet distances them from aceiving concern for their cause."

Yes, of course. And these "masked men waving guns and screaming or kidnapping and cutting off heads" are what you call "The Arabic culture" right? That IS funny. I could not stop laughing when I read your little diatribe. Those men are TERRORISTS and -- I know you're going to think this is crazy but... -- most Arabs, including Practicing Muslims, are NOT terrorists. Yes, I know...it sounds CRAZY but it's a fact. These men do not actually represent whatever you mean by that prejudicially and mythically labeled "the Arab culture" phrase. This will be attested by anyone who has ever served in Iraq -- which in itself depicts only some cultures of the Arabs.

..."I support the soldiers who put underwear on the terrorist heads."

I really have no clue what to make of this comment. I suppose I could ask if you feel that boxers or briefs are more appropriate for this daunting and professional task but I think the statement itself is fairly stupid.

"I think that the soldiers should of sent them to America and integrated them into prison society."

The term is "should have" and you're absolutely right. That is EXACTLY what we need. Like yourself, I love paying extra taxes to transport terrorists to this country, Justin. It does so much for the country. ...

"If those men who put towels over their face think they are tough, they don't intimidate me."

Do you mean the guys at the local gym in the locker room who are drying off? Well, I'll tell you what, Justin, they don't intimidate me either.

"It further strengthens my belief that we need to fight a more technological war."

So...how do you make it MORE technological, Justin? ...

"Save allied force lives by evacuating women and children from known terrorist neighborhoods then bomb the bejezus out it."

It's an interesting thought. Of course, people rarely align themselves willingly with a foreign occupation and if you look at Fallujah, we "kind of" forgot to clear the civilians out before dropping the chemical agents on the people. Oops.

"I frankly don't give a red cent what the world thinks as long as our enemies know America has had enough, we won't explain anything just kick butt and take names."

Enough of...what? We lost 3,000 people in New York City and Washington, DC combined. We EXTERMINATED more than 100,000 civilians in Iraq. We definitely took a lot of names...they happened to be overwhelmingly civilians, though, but I'm sure that's just a minor point to you, Justin.

"Remember, when you mess with the bull you get the horns."

And God knows those Iraqis REALLY messed with us. After all, how dare they live under our imposed embargo and a dictator that our nation helped put in power? It's about time we showed them what happens to people we don't like because they happen to have the wrong religion or ethnicity!
