If only.

That would make things sink in to some of the "enlightened" "liberals" that are trying to run this country into the ground.

By the same token then, since Timothy McVeigh (a devout Chirstian and a decorated veteran of the US armed forces) blew up the Okhlahoma tower as a sign of being anti-US government/ establishment, shouldn't there be a Declaration of War against, any and all organizations and groups he belonged to?

In particular against all proponents of Christianity and of the US armed forces?

wait, that would mean the US armed forces would declare war on themselves... hmmn..

perhaps blaming *all* of Islam for the actions of a few deranged individuals isn't the right direction. That only creates more enemies than we can fight against, prolonging our losses and the time it takes to be victorious.

Also, doesn't that kind of thing carry with it ominous echoes of Nazi intolerance?
