I agree that Muslims are totally overreacting to cartoons printed by a journalist. In my country, America, liberal journalists can't be believed and many people know they've been discredited and are not believed. They're just making their political points, which are usually not what the majority of Americans believe. ...

I don't know how Muslims can't understand why Americans think they're a violent group. It's like their whole response to anything is violence. How many years have we seen them stoning eachother, burning flags, burning buildings, bombing eachother, bombing anything to do with us, threatening the world, kidnapping people, beheading people, blowing up buses, coffee shops, and let's not forget flying planes into buildings. I think it's just in their nature... Some are hard working. Some collect welfare. Some are drinkers. Some are better at math. Some have better rhythm. Is there something wrong with recognizing these differences? Maybe the Muslims have no sense of humor and are just angry. Maybe they have sadistic tendencies. Maybe they should quit brainwashing them from the day they're born. I can see praying everyday, but these guys are overdoing it to the point of brainwashing. How many hours do they sit there praying and chanting. It's not normal. It's not healthy prayer-- it's brainwashing.

You may argue that the U.S. is the violent country. Unfortunately, we've had to get tough when we're attacked or when our allies are attacked. That's our responsibility as a world leader, and when we have to respond, it's not done lightly. We have to go through many procedures and get approval from many places. It's not because we disagree with someone's way of thinking. We're expected to protect the world. Usually diplomacy has worked, but that sometimes gets exhausted and we're left with no other option. Iraq is a good example. How many resolutions did we need Saddam to ignore? I believe he did have weapons of mass destruction and was given plenty of time and warning to hide them in a neighboring country. Remember him marching his troops in front of the cameras for the world to see wearing chemical suits and masks? I'm pretty sure that was his way of letting us know he was ready to use his chemical weapons that he had already used many times in the past.
