I have a suggestion for your "outrage" ...

Reader comment on item: Dueling Fatwas
in response to reader comment: Where's the outrage?

Americans still have the right to freely express themselves in any U.S. Newspaper or magazine via their editorial pages, but almost no one does. For the most part, people express their "outrage" in safe venues like this one instead of openly where everyone can read them and benefit from them. It entails certain risks, but freedon was never withour risk and costs. Without a willingness to do either of the previous, we may as well kiss "freedom" goodbye. We are losing it daily in this country as Islam, drug cartels, criminals, and political thugs from other nations continually chip away at it with funding everything anti-U.S. and of couyrse through intimidation.

A little terrorism here and a little terrorism there, a few strategic phone calls, and presto, you have a weak and anemic populace unwilling to do anything except smile and wave the two fingered "V" peace sign. This of course only encourages further terrorist activities.

"Boo!" Americans scatter. We are ripe for the plucking and all nations including the terrorists and our own politicians know it.

Our government leaders of both the Republican and Democrat parties know that they only have to pay lip service to their campaign rhetoric.
