Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:

I disagree with Mr. Pipe's view on effecting the islamic world in a positive way. It is also nonsense to think that somehow islam can change itself for the better.

Sooner or later we will have to face up to the world war that islam has declared on us.

Nuclear weapons were perfectly OK to use on our "now" allies, the Japanese. We were all commited to the destruction of Japan. Now they are among our best friends or should I say, few remaining friends.

What if we were to destroy islam with nuclear weapons before they DO us. Mr. Ahmedijenad seems to think that nuclear devastation is the only option against us. While we in the west consider him a lunatic, how many moslems think he is their best hope for the future of islam? How many do not support his views?

Why can't we take our self defence as seriously now as we did 65 years ago?
