If Osama blows up DC, for example, then the entire Muslim world could be wiped off the map in 5 minutes.
I doubt we would have the political will for that, even then.

Without the DC liberals holding us back, we might.

I don't know. If literally LA or NY was gone in a flash with millions dead there would be no limit to our rage. Any politician that proposed anything less than total annihilation would be run out on a rail.
Think hard Osama. Taking out Afghanistan and Iraq was playing nice. When you hear the call for Americans to immediately return home start digging deep...

9/11 was relatively small, extremly alarming, but tiny compared to say, a whole city. If DC were turned into a parking lot, you can bet there'd be political will to wipe Mecca off the map.

Judging the response when Cong. Tancredo made his comments, I would say you are right. We don't have the will. We don't even have the will to spell out to them what the consequences of such an act would be. We didn't have the will to kick them out of our country after 9/11. And obviously, we don't have the will to rid our country of these vipers before they can act again.
