I see a lot of questioning here along the lines of "but this makes churches fair game". That's just not correct. People in churches, mosques,
whatever here don't hole up in them as shelter and HQ while fighting a war. If a bunch of extremist Christians, or any other group, did the same
thing I would feel the same.
It always irked me that because of the terrorist's religion, they always know they can hide inside the mosque and be more or less untouchable. To
me, this represents a most heinous defilement of holy ground. At the moment a holy building is comandeered for military purposes, it is in my eyes no
longer holy ground, but just more brick and mortar we need to send crashing down on them.
"But it will only inspire hatred!" is the outcry. If killing the bad guys who want to kill ALL of us is going to inspire hatred, then I don't
care! Kill them wherever they stand! If people are going to be so irrational as to follow or support such individuals, then they're so dense that
no matter what we do they're going to hate us anyway--sucking up to them isn't going to work. (That's how we got in this mess in the first place!)
