So I object to this idea that one needs a refresher course of American patriotism. If anything people wanting a foreign power off their land resorting to violence in the form of urban guerrilla warfare is exactly what our Founding patriots supported and what this country was founded on.
Yes, certain terrorists are our enemy which is Al Qaeda. I am not interested in starting conventional war for anyone else's terrorists. Just look at what our own govt is doing to its own people today.
Anyone who preys on the innocent and proclaims conversion to their beliefs or we will destroy you is not a freedom fighter~
It would indeed be a tragedy if the history of the human race proved to be nothing more than the story of an ape playing with a box of matches on a petrol dump.
