I'm not Christian and these terrorist hide behind innocents but I'm not sure just how innocent they actually are. My understanding is their religion teaches that non believers need to be converted or killed. To me that seems like a declaration of war by their whole society against everyone else. Most Muslims are not that extreme in their beliefs but after 911 I saw video of those people celebrating in the streets.
We won't be safe until the people of Islamic societies become afraid of the consequences of attacking America and thus refuse to allow safe haven to those who will commit such attacks. That's not going to happen out of the goodness of their hearts, their religion teaches that we need to die. It's only going to happen out of fear.
Blasting the shit out of them will also keep them in the dark ages which, unfortunately, is where we need to keep them because if they ever manage to come to power, despite their backward ass repressive culture, they are going to exterminate us. Israel will be gone long before us.
My children are pretty innocent and I'm sorry, they are my priority over the innocent children of people who would kill mine if given the chance.
