We're too worried about trampling on some civil liberties, being politically incorrect, and offending certain ethnic groups. We let everyone into our country. The consequences of not taking action: the Muslim insurgencies in Chechnya and the Philippines, the takeover of Iran, the hostage crisis in Moscow, the Arab attacks on 9/11, the Munich massacres, the Achille Lauro, Yasser Arafat, etc.

The American flag has been burned in many countries. How many Palestinian flags. Saudi flags (oops, they're supposed to be our allies), Egyptian flags, Syrian flags, Iranian flags, and other Arab-nations' flags have you seen burned in the U.S? Try to burn one and you'll be arrested for causing a fire, or because you didn't get a permit first. ..
