Terrorism is the Product of Humiliation and Failure in Islam

Reader comment on item: "Moslem States Represent a Potential Threat to World Peace"

Submitted by William Robert Jack (United States), Feb 22, 2006 at 18:08

A strike in the US may occur very soon. Bin Laden is patient, and serious. The truce offer he recently made was a ploy. We are in a war until a winner emerges.

Those who think the war in Iraq is a monster to handle, have not tasted anything of what these humiliated Islamic militants have to offer--the worst is yet to come in my opinion, and time is on their side---they have no nation, they have no government, they have no military--they just have humiliation, envy and hate to energize their destructive ambitions.

Their aim is to ruin civilized, freedom seeking, liberty loving nations and people whenever and wherever they can. They are a humiliated and hopeless. They can never achieve what they long for which is caliph in charge of the world--to turn back the clock to the old days of Islamic glory.

The achievement, progress, and liberation all around them just makes them more miserable and hating, and devoted to destroying it all. They squander and plunder their own potential--they have no reason to live, as miserable as they are--there is more purpose in dying for an empty religion than there is in living in humiliation, stagnation,hopelessness and hate.

We've got to find more effective ways to eliminate them, while reducing our own vulnerability to their weapons and tactics. Diplomacy is irrelevant in this kind of fight.
