Yeah, just keep talking like that. Go ahead, I dare ya. Even... Chirac is saying that he'll incinerate your holy places. He's even saying that the at-fault muslim country doesn't even have to be identified. If some rogue Islamic terrorist lites a nuke, regardless of knowing who sponsored it, all the holy places go up. Now thats the attitude.

As the article below says....

A second series of attacks on America at the level of 9/11 or greater will not bring out more B-52s. They are already out. A second series will bring out the one arm of America's war machine that has rarely been asked about, written about, or even mentioned in passing since September, 2001; the ballistic missile submarines.


Sometime shortly after 9/11 in an online forum I frequented then, an exasperated idealist proclaimed that "After all, you can't kill a billion Muslims." Like so many others he spoke from somewhere outside History. History, especially the world's most recent history, shows us all that, "Yes, if you really want to, you can."

If thats what you want, fine with me.
