If that is New Texas, then the World Trade Center is the new Alamo.

You forgot to rename Turkey the source of terrorism for the last 600 or so years.

I wanted to credit FlJoePa for coming up with this idea.  His original map
looked like this.  I thought it was quite creative, but morphed in the Toast
on the one posted first on this thread.  He shoud get credit for this.

Please explain what you are referring to. I thought Turkey was an ally and equally plagued by fundamentalist Muslims.

Your comment is an example of the ignorance of many in the West concerning Turkey. Turkey plays the game to get the weapons to oppress and brutalize their people, including Christians and Muslim Kurds. Turkey has commited genocide against Christian Armenians and Greeks and Assyrians in the 20th centruy and yet the US looks away and has not even recognized these atrocities. The KLA and UCK - terrorist Muslim organizations in the Balkans get their money and supplies through Turkey. Turkey allied itself with Germany in WWII and was the first nation to recognize the Soviet Union.

Need more convincing?

"turkey has done everything they can to become considered "european" and western."

Does that include genocides, brutalities, state narco trafficking, military support to the Albanian UCK, etc etc.?

Destruction of the Christian Byzantine Empire

Enslavement of Christian peoples of the Balkans

the kidnapping and forcible Islamification of Christian children for over 100 years

The genocide of over 3 million Christian Armenians, Greeks, and Assyrians in the 20th century inspiring Hitler to model his own extermination program after Ataturk's.

There is more.

Destruction of the Christian Byzantine Empire

This one definitely seems out of place. I can't really bring myself to grieve that one empire has been defeated by the other. The other events seem to be committed against the Emipre's own subjects, which is not generally what people think of as terrorism, just straightforward tyranny.

On another note, any terrorist acts that you know of committed by the current regime?

"I can't really bring myself to grieve that one empire has been defeated by the other." If you cannot grieve that singular historical event - the destruction of the Byzantine Empire by the Muslim Turks ...you are useless. As for what Turkey commits today, check out Human Rights Watch or Amnesty International. There's plenty of material there too.

They have been fighting the Muslim Kurds, amoung other things, and tactic have not always fit the ethics of the situation so to speak. But the genocide early in the last century, of their own people, is probably the worst, albiet virtually unreported these days.

Actually the weather is beautiful here in Buffalo, NY.

Your posting however reminds me of avoidance theory.

You know what, part of me has really missed Leno this week but then, how could he joke about what happened? He has joked about Bin Laden before- maybe someone should have taken it a little more seriously.
