And you waste your time thinking about economics.

Tsk Tsk

Oh, and the discussion was interesting too.

Why is it though, when I hear someone like Stephen Schwartz tell us all about the peaceful half of the muslim world that he just can't see ever strapping on a bomb and killing people, I still remember that other half of the muslim world that does produce those bombers; and, for the life of me I just can't take more than a idle intellectual notice of what Mr. Schwartz is saying.

The funny thing about the whole mess is that when one looks at a whole plaza full of robed and bearded men, it is just so damn hard to spot the peaceful ones.

Carol Boudreaux is obviously a young woman who has a probable good 40 to 50 years ahead of her, so the question I'd like to ask her is, "Given the time you spent in Africa, and the efforts you have made, do you ever expect, in your lifetime, to be able to enter a car in Cairo, drive straight through the heart of Africa on a decent two lane blacktop highway all the way to Capetown, and never once be stopped and robbed, or pay bribes, avoid rape, avoid death, and to be able to find fuel, lodging, and food at the necessary points in your journey?"

vidyohs, suicide terrorists are much more politically motivated than religiously motivated. see here:

Dan,

I understand 100%, thoroughly, completely, and totally that Islam is as much a political system as it is a religious one.

and that brings me back to here:
