Understanding numbers and what to do

Reader comment on item: Trouble in Londonistan

Numbers or polls do not make a bit of a difference. What counts is leadership and their agenda. The Communists controlled Russia with only 5%

The Moslem Clerics and their Government dictator leaders are not only locked together to save their respective control, wealth and power but they have no other choice. It is the only way they can control the majority of their people, for people in general simply like to be free and left alone so they can chose what they want to do.

Most Jews do not go to synagogues. Most Catholics do not go to church. And I am sure most Moslems do not go to their Mosque. Who goes to these places? Well, it is the strong believers or fellow travelers or those who fear not going..

So, when you bomb a bridge the poor guy who can't get to work is very mad and guess who the Cleric blames. And when you bomb an airport and people cannot go on vacation or buisiness people cannot come in or out guess who the Cleric blames.. And when you destroy the generation plant and peoples food rots guess who the Cleric blames. So the bottom line is the policy is all wrong. We create more enemies.

So what do you do? Simple destroy the Mosques and each time you destroy the Mosque you show a video as to who the speaker was in the Mosque and what he said. And if some strong believer or fellow traveler was killed in the attack so what. The people who never or seldom go to the mosque will not care and probably very happy for their kid will not be trained to be suicide bombers or anything of a similar nature. In fact they will have an excuse not to go to the mosque.

In time nobody will come to the Mosque, who knows when the next mosque will be blown up, the rabble rousers will be gone, and the 'Moral Majority' will take over. And maybe a true democracy will come about.

And the same policy can be applied to weapons factories, army camps, etc, etc.

Don't hurt the people. Just the leaders whoever they are.

And in the end we will not have to pay for new bridges, airports, generating plants like we are doing in Iraq.
