Jason, Harrak has one point which we must be cognizant of, and it's eroding the West from the inside, and no, it's not the Islamofascists [IF's for short] themselves.....

it's what i've come to call "our tolerance of intolerance."

our liberal and politically-correct drive to accept anything and everything that's tossed at us.

the UK, and Britain in particular, with probably France running a close second, is/are the worst/best examples today.

they're caving in to the IF demands for anything and everything. we're doing a lot of the same here in the US.

our tolerance of freedom for extremists will erode us because it will let the strength and numbers of these overwhelmingly INTOLERANT people reach some critical mass.

after that, the decline, as Harrak puts it, may be inevitable, after all.

if Britain or France doesn't find the genital fortitude to start "putting their foot down" on this stuff, it may be the old, sad joke about Hitler's Germany.... "when they came for [one minority group] i said nothing because i was not a member of that group..... [and so on...]"

Submitting....
