Their weakness is the women.

Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:

Their weakness is the women. There is nothing good in Islam for women. The information age (internet) is the tool that will undermine them by showing the good life that American soccer moms have. We have powerful women, but they have royalty. Powerful women are not the key. It is the average American woman that has a really good life as contrasted to the virtual misery of Islamic women that will make the women turn from radical Islam.

Twenty years ago "Dallas" and other TV shows piped into Eastern Europe created the discontent that brought down the Soviet Union. "Leave it to Beaver" and pap like that can create the discontent in Islamic women that will undermine the radical Islamists. It is not human nature that they all want to die on the battlefield, especially the women.

Please keep talking about the good life of Western women.
