#1 Tipping Point? Yup, the undercurrent of popular US opinion is there. Now all it takes is some Islamist to walk into a mall and let loose with a machine gun to put the entire US war machine into high gear. I hear people toss off the "just nuke'em all" line far more often then I did even after 9/11. Liberal Muslims better wake up soon and start solving THEIR problem before they all wind up in concentration camps.

#2 Geraghty's point -- is that Democratic politicians who have generally opposed "racial profiling" are nonetheless opposing the ports deal because, basically, the company involved is an Arab company.

Yes, but this guy forgets that the dimocrats cant make a logical argument about anything. All they can seemingly do is take a diametrically opposed position to everything Bush does. They don't have any answers, ideas or willingness to work with the admin. on anything, but they are the first ones to bitch.

#3 Don't bet on it. As significant factions in the West DO begin to get fed up with islam, there will be an even greater concerted effort by others to push back and be our "conscience." For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. This is true in human endeavors as well.

The West is plagued by too much empathy. What these do-gooders don't realize, is that islam does not see the world as the west does. The most cited example is when westerners see a suicide bombing as a final, desperate act that only a person with no other choice could possibly consider and islam sees it as a statement of faith.

So our empathy is misguided and misplaced. And dead wrong.

#4 You may be correct PD, but the Hildabeest is trying to run to the right of GWB on the WoT. Politically, she can ignore the moonbats because she knows that they would NEVER vote for a Republican. I am concerned that she might be elected by conservatives annoyed with the course of the war.

She would kill a lot Muslims without second thoughts if she thought it would help her politically.
