#4  They're merry and hairy and vicious,
Mohammedan, scary, malicious...
And though these wee scholars
May grant you three hollers,
To meet them is rarely auspicious.

#3  Quaint local customs which, all kidding aside, isn't worth one picoliter of American blood to stop. Every dime being spent on "nation-building, promoting democracy, etc." should instead be spent on developing the tools to make containment and Prompt Global Strike a fact of life for all barbarians.
