Pat, aren't you a bit naïve?

Reader comment on item: Decision Time on Iran
in response to reader comment: A small area of agreement

"The goal of the leaders of Iran and of several other Muslim states remains the establishment of a caliphate across the entire world and the elimination of all other faiths."

Pat, the way things look, that's their goal indeed. But as they dream to reach that goal by unleashing a nuclear apocalypse, it is obvious that the outcome will be decidedly different. The real outcome may easily be the end of humanity.

"I'm not prepared to kneel and pray toward Mecca five times a day. Are you? Is that the world you want to leave to your children?"

Pat, how can you be that naïve? Kneeling and praying towards Mecca is the only danger you are worried about? Are you buying this crazy hallucinatory Islamic dream that after they destroy Western Civilization and Islamize the rest of the world (or whatever remains of it) peace will descend upon a "pious Muslim world"?

If something at all will remain after such a hypothetical Muslim "victory", you can expect anything but peace…in a destroyed, hopeless world, ruled by hopelessly deranged gangs of bloodthirsty fanatics.
