Let's be honest; Islam is a religion of nutjobs. Any organization that codifies, within its tenets, the ownership of another human being is, by definition, an immoral institution that needs to be eradicated. I don't care if it's The Caliphate or The Confederacy, it's got to go.
If the reports out of Iraq, regarding the brutality of ISIS, are true, then they should be exterminated like a pack of mad dogs. Beheadings? Crucifixions? Women turned into chattel? Chase every swinging dick down and put a bullet in them. Allowing these assholes to run around unchecked is just asking for trouble to come to our shores.
Now, in the interest of full disclosure, I have never held any love for Muslims. The best that I could muster was apathy. I can still remember watching the news coverage of the '72 Olympics when the Black September group attacked the Israeli team. I joined the Army in response to our embassy being taken in Iran. When the Marine Barracks in Beirut was bombed, we were put on alert. Every one of us was ready to go avenge our comrades in arms. I can see Robert Stethem being dumped on the tarmac like it happened yesterday. The horror of the events on the Achille Lauro, the bombing of La Belle Disco in West Berlin, Pan Am Flight 103, and on, and on, and on.
That said, I don't think one more American boot should be on the ground in Iraq unless we go in with the intent of bringing them a taste of Total War, American Style. Like the man said, "War to the knife, and knife to the hilt!" After all, Germany and Japan were once our enemies, it took total war to bring them to their knees, and now they are staunch allies.
Unfortunately, our current leaders don't have the stomach or the balls to deal with these people with the utter ruthlessness that would be necessary. Our government has this weird need for our enemies to like us. As far as I'm concerned, they can like us or hate us, as long as they fear us, it's all good.
