    Did you know that US President Thomas Jefferson declared war on Islam. When Jefferson became president Muslim pirates attached ships in the Atlantic and Mediterranian and held crews for ransom, and later demanded or extorted money to leave US ships pass. The pirates were based out of the Barbary Coast, the Islamic nations of Tripoli, Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers. When Jefferson formed the US Navy to fight these pirates, the fighters on the Navy ships were marines. Hence the "shores of Tripoli" in the USMC hymn. In 1786 the Tripoli ambassador to Briton told Jefferson and John Adams that the Koran gave Islamists the right to attach American ships and imprison American citizens.
    I found this interesting and rather alarming considering what is going on in todays world. WC

    And we actually think we can do something about it. Abolishing terrorism ain't gonna happen.......We can fight it, but never end it.


    What we need is another Pershing........wishful thinking.

    Keith Ellison was sworn in as House Rep using Jefferson's koran. It was reported that the reason Jefferson had a copy of the koran was because he was openminded and was a champion of religious tolerence.

    Thomas Jefferson acquired the koran to study and learn all he could about his enemy before entering into battle with them, not because he liked or favored the religion

    You can't stop terrorism but you can monitor the whereabouts of radical Muslims once they are here in this country. It would be better to keep them out of the country in the first place but not very PC. We might be willing to drop the PC after a hundred thousand or more are dead. Three thousand wasn't enough.

    Israel may take care of all of it soon enough. Once they start, they'll finish the job, unlike US.

    What War? I see another police action, but no War.

    War is about defeating the other ememy, you make is as gorey and desturctive as possible for the other side, and you don't concern yourself with the critic's!!

    Learn from history, don't repeat it!

    They have a big stronghold in England and France,,,,but they don't have guns as the gubment took them. Pretty easy take over without all those home grown patriots able to protect themselves....

    Christans have been fighting the Muslims from the Seventh century onward until the present day. It will never end until one or the other is wiped off the face of the earth. Two opposing views of God that can never be compatable.
