Hi Syed,

Always a pleasure to hear from a man who chooses to live in the world's largest democracy.

The beginning of the end for America? Because Muslims will go after American forces? Really? Muslims have been doing that for years.

Yes, America has a large number of nuclear weapons. Which we never use. Our president does not go around threatening to wipe countries off the map, or to push any Jews into any sea. We don't feel threatened by your nuclear weapons in India. However, that jungle law will be very real when nuclear weapons are available to the pious leaders of Iran, for whom mass murder is normal policy.

And when Muslims do those valid things, like firing hundreds of rockets at elementary schools and hospitals in someone else's country, or blowing up buses full of ordinary people, or flying planes full of ordinary people into buildings full of ordinary people, non-muslims also have the right to defend themselves. That's the part you can't figure out, isn't it?

Been to Iran lately?
