I would beg to differ about commercial banning or restricting commercial flights. People know the risk. Its their life to do with as they please as long as they don't intentionally harm someone else.

I agree with Ron Paul's position on withdrawing our troops from Iraq, Afghanistan with a couple of strong caveats.

1. I agree with Rand Paul, Ron's son, that Congress should declare war by vote according to the Constitution on Al-Queda, and whoever else we are fighting overseas or bring our troops back home. Make it an official legal war according to the Constitution or come home.

2. I would not vote to declare war so I would agree with Ron Paul that we should bring our troops home. However, I don't hold the same reason for bringing our troops home as Paul.

Ron Paul's position is. If we brought our troops home then the Muslim terrorists wouldn't attack us. I don't agree with his reason.

It seems to me the way to eliminate or significantly reduce the terrorist problem is to follow the Gert Wilders model. Throw all the radical Muslims out of Western countries. One and done. Out and gone. Europe is now close to starting to fall to Sharia law, which is the real problem.

Terrorism is only one method used by the Islamist to advance their global agenda of implementing Sharia law across the globe. If you keep the Islamist out of the Western countries and you stay out of theirs then the problem will of terrorism will disappear. Terrorists only strike in countries that have soldiers in Muslim countries.

Muslims who are willing to fully assimilate can stay in Western countries but not the ones who won't . No jihabs no burqua's etc. The radical Muslims will leave the West and leave us alone if we pull our military out of their countries. Muslims countries are not a military threat to the West including Iran. They are a social threat to the West. Sharia law is a lot bigger reason for concern then terrorists are.
