"What do they want?" It's a query we hear a lot these days. By "they," of course, the questioner means the suicide bombers, the masked men in the video-tape decapitating a hostage, the goose-stepping, black-clad legions parading with AK-47s. "They" call themselves Hamas, al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, the Muslim Brotherhood, Jamaat-Islamiyah, the Mahdi Army or any of a dozen other names for violent terror groups operating with impunity around the world. Five years ago next month "they" were al Qaeda -- thrust onto center stage aboard four aircraft turned into deadly missiles. This spring, "they" were Hamas terrorists firing lethal Qassam rockets from Gaza into neighborhoods in southern Israel. This week, it's Hezbollah -- the Iranian-armed and directed movement in Lebanon that ignited the current round of violence in the Middle East. Some of the "theys" are Sunni Muslim. Others are Shi'ites. In most of the world they are theological adversaries -- with a long sanguinary history of fratricide far bloodier than anything experienced in the Christian schism between Catholics and Protestants. In nearly every case, "they" have foundations in a local grievance, recruit followers by emphasizing perceived wrongs and have charismatic leaders who promote "martyrdom" as a means of making things right. Regardless of origin -- Sunni or Shi'ite --? "they" share critical common ground. They all despise Judeo-Christian values, institutions and individuals and are committed to "ridding" Islamic lands of Western "occupation."

I say we kill them first.
I vote for that plan.

Juan Williams yesterday had the nerve to say with a straight face that the fact that we are tied down in IRAQ means we can't provide the troops necessary to get between the Izzies and the hexbos in Lebanon.
1) We have the troops
2) Those divisions we have in Iraq are right where we want them to be.
3) We can never put troops in South Lebanon unless we mean to invade and occupy. The hezbos would just look at us as something to attack. That's what happened in 1982, as far as that goes.
I also heard some bum on Fox say the following of the Marine Barracks Bombing -- "That was a long time ago." I don't forget about things like that.
If all other religions were to disappear from this earth, the muslims would soon be at each other's throats, as is happening now in Baghdad and as has happened in the past throughout the muslim world.
Culture of death and ddestruction. Muslims offer nothing.
