    How do you stop religious extremists who aren't afraid to die?
    Suicide bombers...

    You can't. There will always be some sort of poor disalusioned young individual who can be swayed by some zelot into doing something like this.

    Our boys and girls are doing a great job keeping them occupied overseas but eventually, my worst fears will probably be realized and they will stike us again.

    Lets hope that the world changes at somepoint were the guys just go away.
    I for one don't believe they will ever be gone.

    Very sad indeed.

    get them a job and a mortgage
    And a significant other and rugrats!!!
    That'll keep'em busy!


    Seriously, regardless of your politics the current administration has done a good job of protecting the home front since 9/11.
    Our only options are this:

    1.
    Identify and contain the extremists
    2.
    Hunt them down and neutralize them... worldwide
    3.
    And most importantly, stop the brainwashing of the young boys in the radical madras' and educate the youth on the concept of peaceful coexistance and tolerance.
    This is a generational task that will take 10-20 years.
    In the mean time, see #1 and 2.

    My two cents...

    Re: Pakistani opposition leader Bhutto assassinated

    This is very bad.
    :-\

    Bhutto was the most prominent figure in what could have been some kind of tempering movement against extremists in Pakistan. Conspiracy theories will be flying around Pakistan for many years to come (well, not that that's unusual in this part of the world) about who was involved in the assissination. I predict it will be somewhat destabilizing, and may end up bringing out more extremist elements. Very bad.

    Pakistan needs the world's support right now.
