RE: nuclear option
Yeah, I've heard that too. Dude, what I don't understand is how so many people can live in a town with Islamic people all over the place, and be totally ignorant of their culture, and not be, if not sympathetic, at least understanding of what is actually going on with these people. Get to know some of them. My own opinion is that both cultures are victims of themselves.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
