I strongly dislike Mr. Obama's politics. I strongly dislike progressive Rebpublican politics. I want to decimate terrorists everywhere. But I am more interested in radical islam, because it is a clear and present danger to those that love freedom. (And I do not mean just in America). They are global, and they slaughter thousands upon thousands of innocent muslims every single year. What does their holy book say about murdering or causing the death of fellow muslims? They--terrorists--are gonna burn in every way possible. I support American policies that facilitate more BBQs.
Mr. Obama and Mr. GW Bush have fudged up on some details, but they both chose to act militarily against the bad dudes with turbans wherever they may be found. Such aggressive/bold actions seem to be keeping the terrorists focused on their own region instead of arriving here in droves. Maybe they are preparing to strike the "homeland", but the wait has been long... and they have been very active elsewhere for > one decade. Huzzah!!

Pete, Lets put this into some context. This forum is called Ornery American. It is not called the Ornery Muslim or Ornery Hindu. Most of this is in context about what affects America. Even if I stipulated that maybe overall violence in Hinduism is worse per # killed than Islam, which I'd still dispute, it's not a threat to America and we can do nothing to stop it.
Where are the Hindu massacres inside America? Where are the Americans being threatened by this?
Now you're making sense, Seneca. I agree. We go to war with what threatens us and our interests.
Al Qaeda are our enemies, absolutely, and fight them we should. But let's not equate expediency to morality, or enmity to evil. In terms of a sheer evil on the human soul, fundamentalist Hinduism seems more monstrous than its Muslim counterpart, albeit less threatening. They seem to be trying to make their Swastica mean in India what it meant in Germany.

Maybe we can get some internet and media censorship to protect our disenfranchised and self-destructive from “inspiration” from extremist views. After all, it would just be to keep us safe…
