I read the articles you posted tweva. Thanks once again. I understand the background somewhat better, but I fear the fundamentalist problem is only going to get worse if Western leaders aren’t willing to even admit that the terrorists are in fact acting in the name of Islam. It may not be the same version of Islam that many others, perhaps most, practice, but to the terrorists it is a religious war. Another key piece that our leaders are not willing to admit is that some of our so called friends in the Middle East are the ones who are funding terrorist groups. I’m thinking we can’t defeat an enemy when it is not politically correct to admit who they really are. Time for me to crawl back into my little sheltered world I suppose.
