Dissident Republicans have made more than 30 attacks or attempted attacks on national security targets, compared with more than 20 all of last year.

Why doesn't Northern Ireland simply vote for secession from the British already? I can't understand what could be holding them up.

Why doesn't Britain just bomb the hell out of Northern Ireland? That's what we do to our terrorist and it's worked our pretty good so far.

Intelligence officials uncover terror plot on UK, France. British intelligence official says plots have 'Islamist connection'; Eiffel Tower evacuated again following bomb threat from telephone booth.

Because the majority of the people in Northern Ireland are Protestant and are happy being a part of the UK, it is the Catholic Irish that are doing the bombings. They are the minority that Ireland as a united Ireland. Not the Protestant majority in Northern Ireland.

Because the majority in Northern Ireland are Unionists (Protestants) and want to stay with the UK, whereas the minority are Nationalists (Roman Catholic) and want all of the island as one country.

As long as the Unionists are the majority voting for secession won't happen. It is close right now, I think only about a 9% difference, but for now that is enough.

Since 9/11, 40,142 people have been killed at the hands of Muslim extremists as the result of 17,835 attacks. (National Counterterrorism Center) And people say there isn't a problem...

As stupid as it sounds,we need to form a unit like G.I. Joe-a unit comprised of Special Forces units from the free nations to attack the terrorists where they live in quick,stealth-like raids instead of carpet bombing the entire country.

By that same logic, how many people have hispanics, blacks, and orientals killed since 9/11?

Can honestly say that I have never used either of those terms.

When Bill O'Reilly goes on TV and half of the women leave the room to thunderous applause because he says Muslims commit terror, it's pretty clear that people deny that they have a problem that has brewed from within the core of their religion.

Or how about Obama removing the phrase "Jihad" and "Islam" from national security documents (link)?

Fact is, it's become a grave sin to say Islam in America, not to mention saying Islam in a negative way. When Penn (of Penn and Teller) says "I stay away from Muslim jokes, because I want to keep my family" jokingly, there is a lot of truth in that. When Comedy Central censors South Park, it's not a small issue. It's actually the core of the issue and is making America pathetic.

How do you consider this a logical argument in any way? White males are not a cause, religion or otherwise united entity. Islamic extremism is.

Funny because 99.8% of serial killers are white males. Maybe being white and male gives you a predisposition to be a serial killer.


When will America and the world wake up and stop being politically correct when the writing is on the wall. We have to stop Caucasian Males now before more people are killed.

Just because these people invoke the name of Allah during their attacks doesn't mean this is truly a religious war. It's naive to believe that this war has more to do with religion than it does with a very real past history of abuses by the West with respect to their beliefs and way of life. We've never shown proper regard for these things when it comes to our dealings, and it's resulted in very real problems...like when Churchill re-drew the map of Iraq. Holy ****-balls, we can probably thank that guy for Hussein.

You're just fanning the flames of a ******** misconception that has been forced upon nearly everybody in this country.

Haven't they attacked or tried to attack multiple countries though and not just the US? Just curious because you said "abuses by the West".

So when Muslims commit atrocities against their own people (as in same religion, different sect, or same sect)... That's "the West's" fault.

And apologists like you are, what, helping the situation?

I don't care who a country offends. 40,000+ deaths in 9 years in the name of Islam!? Can you perceive such a number?? UNACCEPTABLE! UN-****ING-ACCEPTABLE.
