The problem with the U.S. when it comes to this sort of thing -- and this goes back decades
through multiple administrations, folks -- is that we can't possibly pursue any kind of initiative against radical Islam when our Middle Eastern policy for more than 20 years has been predicated on the need to protect Islamic royal families in places like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
Let's be honest and acknowledge our own political bias while we're at it. If a Democratic president had stood up after 9/11 and publicly proclaimed that "Islam is a religion of peace," we would have rightly laughed it off as the idiotic rantings of a retarded baboon.

On 9/11, once it became clear it was Muslims who had done it, I was posting on FR that we had been struck in a blind spot in our Political system, because we had NO WAY to deal with a religion as an opponent.
Sadly I certainly feel vindicated in that outlook more then a decade later...
