I agree with everything you say except one point. We cannot leave islam alone in isolated areas because that is what we have been doing. The islamic society will eventually grow and expand and again threaten any non-muslim society. Don't forget that the USA tried isolationism early in the 20th century and our society paid dearly for it. We then tried early 'proactive' intervention in Korea and Vietnam. As tragic as those conflicts are, it is quite possible that this action prevented the next world war. Who is to say? Had we done nothing, would two million more Americans have died when the world became inflamed again?

Islam is far worse than Nazism and the Imperial Japanese of the 1930's and 40's. As difficult as it is, we must continue what President Bush began until islam is eliminated. We eliminated the ideologies of the Nazi's and the Imperial Japanese so there is no reason we should accept anything less than the elimination of islam.

Now - how are we as individual world citizens going to place the behaviourally challenged child (islam) in a time out?
