Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Very instructive and shows the whole picture in perspective. Yesterday, I listened to Pat Buchanan's interview to Sean Hannity in which he came close to being apologetic for the Muslims' behavior, blaming the Danish editor's stupidity. He made a comparison with non-indians coming to some indian burial and doing something(don't remember what). But ,for God's sake, the Danes didn't go anywhere! They were in their own country!! Why don't the appeasers get it?!

I am an immigrant from the USSR and remember very well how the communists were doing whatever they wanted everywhere in the the world, making ridiculous demands, accusations and being appeased. They didn't care for the West's reasonings, used negotiations for buying time and cheating later. Until Reagan showed them the overwhelming might and the willingness to use it. Do you see any similarities? The difference is that the communists liked the good life, were not religious fanatics and were not ready to die.
The American people deserve to have the only superpower in the world. And the only superpower in the world deserves to have a president who, in answering demands of apology and other ridiculous things, could answer: "Darlings, I don't give a damn!"
