"Moderate Muslims" exist only as feeding gound for radicals. They are easily manipulated.

You disagree with the British general for wanting to make peace with Taliban & then suggest we should facilitate the radical feeding grounds by in turn feeding their feeding ground? Sounds like an excellent idea, but why don't we just cave in to radicals and save everyone a lot of trouble?

The moderates are mush quite a bit like the feeding medium used for petri dishes to grow all kinds of bacteria. Let's just cut to the chase and invite Osama Bin Laden & all other Radical groups to participate in American Congress with full voting rights. From there we can pass bills to give them aid for arms compliments of the American taxpayer. What the heck - we're opening the borders to Mexico. Why not just give every nut case movement out there carte blanche rights to American purse strings?

Perhaps we should mass produce chopping blocks and present them to the Islamic dominated countries with our outstretched necks on them? No, that's not fair, then they would have to pay to dispose of our bodies. Let's just march into the sea lemming style.
