So How's that "Democracy" Working Out for You?

No matter how one wishes otherwise, we have an existential/ideological problem.

"Kill, kill, kill," was the battle cry of suicide bombers belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq, a militant organization connected to al Qaeda in Iraq, as they stormed a Chaldean church in Baghdad. A spokesman for the group subsequently claimed they did so "to light the fuse of a campaign against Iraqi Christians."

Those "Christians" are Catholics, by the way.

Of course, that cannot happen here.

“I believe today we face as great a threat as we faced in 1776,” Boykin said. “The situation in America is much far more serious than most Americans realize, and there’s no longer any excuse for not knowing.”

That threat, he said, is Islam.

“You need to remember one thing from tonight’s presentation,” Boykin told the audience. “Their objective is to replace our Constitution with Sharia Law.”

Gen. Boykin has a lot of credentials which are not restricted to military general-ing, so he's not just warstick-rattling.

While war is one way to settle ideological differences, it is not optimal. The ideology must, in the end, be proven wrong.

Problem is that Americans aren't used to that sort of exercise AND 'rights-talk', the most common yappaflappa, doesn't cut the ice.
