They are not remotely analogous.
911 was committed by the Nation of Islam, don't you ever think otherwise. The Japanese military decided it was a good idea to attack the US, just as the crazy military wing of Islam decided it was a good idea to attack the "Great Satan".
Their actions may have been criminal in nature, but how many Mullahs did you hear condemn the attack, or any of those that preceded it? Let me guess..... Ummmm.... NONE! In fact there were Mullahs directly involved in the planning in virtually every attack.
Just as every single Japanese citizen didn't know about Pearl, or agree to it, the same holds true about Islam. Every single muslim doesn't have to agree to make it happen. That doesn't mean they can't say it was wrong at some point, and I still haven't heard much other then cheers from any of them.
Never mind, sorry to wake you up, go back to sleep, it's nothing important anyway.
There comes a time when you have to ask what will it take for some people to realize that they are at war with someone that wants them dead. They don't give a rat's ass about your opinion or who's side you're on, they just want you DEAD.
