granted the guy is making an unstubstaniated claim, but his point is a good one, namely that Islamic terrorists have no reasonable justification for massacring women and children. I am sick of those of you that are obssessed with trying to find a way to blame the West for the actions of terrorists; is it so hard to admit that there is evil in the world that is not embodied in the executive branch of the United States government? All too many individuals seem determined to pass the blame off onto the US, after all 'we must have offended them'. Europe tried to appease Hitler, and it did nothing to prevent a second world war. Why do we continue to try and find ways to pacify terrorists, who in the meantime can just bide their time, waiting until nuclear weapons are finally added to their arsenal?
