I agree with much of this article. Well-written. I'd like to see a follow up article on a consistent strategy to deal with the Islamic world. Right now it seems that the west in general and the US in particular have no centralized agreed upon response to the Islamic world. A quick suggested response might be:

1. Identify Islamic countries that are consistently our friends vs. those who say they are but clearly are not! I don't think it's wrong for democratic countries to say to Muslim countries, if you will leave us alone and respect that we have different belief's, we will do the same to you. But for those Muslim countries that refuse to cooperate, I think a few more policy's should be added, such as:

2. Consistently practice full economic sanctions by both US and our allies.

3. When necessary take the bad guys out!

4. Do not give one penny to Islamic countries who are not consistently our friends.

5. Freeze and take every asset away from Islamic globablist who cause us trouble.

In a sense it may be necessary to publicly recognize that we in the West are actually at war with militant Islamic terrorism. So if an American citizen is caught in treason w our enemies - I think they loose all rights as a citizen. As far as I'm concerned you turn them over to a military tribunal.

A few quick thoughts

Straight Ahead!

Muslims aren't our only enemy. As a matter of fact, our biggest enemy is also our biggest creditor and trading partner, China. Who by the way has Islamist problems of their own.

trying to choose who's our biggest enemy during WW2, Germany or Japan.  We are fighting a multi-front war.

We ignore one at the expense of the other at our peril.

I agree that China is a threat as large as militant Islamic governments, however the article was focused on the later. I'm open to talk about the China issue as well. I would say that while we have to keep our eye on China the immediate threat to our country is more from the Islamic side of the isle than the Asian side.

Hey - if you guys think I'm wrong on that - I'm actually open to being informed on why you would say China is a larger and more immediate threat.

Straight Ahead!

Much (though admittedly not all) of China's enormous growth in recent years is due to its enormous size. It simply loosened up some restraints on the private sector that were holding it back (thanks to that ludicrous form of government known as Communism).

China wants dominance and influence, sure enough. But it's got a few too many domestic problems to really pose much of a threat to the US in the near future, in my opinion.

Wonder why all these riots were going on in China over Japan recently? It's a distraction and a social pressure valve. The govt. can stop riots and protests almost before they begin, if they want to. You might recall how quickly the "Jasmine Revolution" was squashed. They allowed these protests because they served their interests: distracting from social ills and corruption.

It's a tenuous grip they have on the nation and they know it. Otherwise they wouldn't resort to these methods.
