We are and have been at war with the muslims in Iran and Saudi Arabia. We need to stomp them into the ground and commandeer their oil reserves (to defray the costs) yesterday.

As the "global war on terrorism" enters its fifth year, it has become increasingly evident that the United States and its allies are involved in an ideological war, in which propaganda and moral suasion will play a large part. Some Bush administration officials, such as Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, have recently jettisoned the "GWOT" moniker in favor of the less martial and more comprehensive "struggle against violent extremism." National security advisor Stephen Hadley has also begun emphasizing the ideological nature of this conflict, recently telling a reporter that the United States is involved in "more than just a military war on terror" and must offer an alternative to the "gloomy vision" of Muslim extremists.

She and hordes of other Iranian bloggers are pushing the envelope of the permissible. Technorati, a Silicon Valley search engine for blogs, said in October that Farsi has moved into the top 10 languages worldwide for bloggers. Most estimates put the number of active blogs in Iran at 70,000 to 100,000, and growing fast.
Iran has a long tradition of controlling the airwaves and the print media, banning papers and jailing journalists who criticize official policies.

But Iran's online activists have proved harder to quash. They have used fast-changing Web addresses, proxy sites, and other technological tricks to get around the restrictions.
"They block us and we evade the blocks," Samiei said. "It goes on every day. They code, we decode."

Can we build Nuclear Powerplants in America, yet?
Can we build Hydro-Electric Powerplants in America, yet?

"What is best in life?" To smite the jihadists, to drive ther minions before you, and to hear the lamentations of their mullahs! allahu fubar!
Moderate muslims better stop "neville chamberlain" appeasing the extremists. Being nice to the extremists will never work. The extremists will not moderate, they will become more and more violent, more and more genocidal, more and more crazy.

Iran is the primary target for obliteration. Pakistan needs to lose its military potential. We need to colonize Arabia until oil is not the lifeblood of our civilization any more. Indonesia needs help(and some strong persuasion) in clearing out its Wahhabis and Salafis. The rest of the Islamic world will sink back into fatalist lethargy once those things are taken care of.
We need to colonize Arabia
As ideas go, that is one. And that's the best I can say about it.
