Bombing Muslim Holy Sites ?

Discuss...

I think this is indeed the only deterrent we (Western world) have against the fundamentalists and fanatics...

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo’s campaign stood by his assertion that bombing holy Muslim sites would serve as a good “deterrent” to prevent Islamic fundamentalists from attacking the United States, his spokeswoman said Friday.

“This shows that we mean business,” said Bay Buchanan, a senior Tancredo adviser. “There’s no more effective deterrent than that. But he is open-minded and willing to embrace other options. This is just a means to deter them from attacking us.”

On Tuesday, Tancredo warned a group of Iowans that another terrorist attack would “cause a worldwide economic collapse.” He said that attacking Muslim holy sites first would be the only means to prevent terrorists from attacking America. IowaPolitics.com recorded his comments.

“If it is up to me, we are going to explain that an attack on this homeland of that nature would be followed by an attack on the holy sites in Mecca and Medina,” Tancredo said. “That is the only thing I can think of that might deter somebody from doing what they would otherwise do. If I am wrong, fine, tell me, and I would be happy to do something else. But you had better find a deterrent, or you will find an attack.”

Tom Casey, a deputy spokesman for the State Department, told CNN’s Elise Labott that the congressman’s comments were “reprehensible” and “absolutely crazy.” Tancredo was widely criticized in 2005 for making a similar suggestion.

I think it's a sure-fire way to galvanize the non-fundamentalists against us.

that's a really really dumb idea. You'd be alienating what's left of the population that isn't pissed and bent on destruction of the west.

that said.... an ultimatum of "we'll nuke 1 holy site for every terrorist attack from here on out." might do it.

HAIL TO THE KING!!

This is completely stupid, of course.
I'm sure Bin Laden and the likes would love to see it happen and would galdly push forward to make an attack just to see this happen, because then (if for instance the westerns would attack their holy sites) a really vast majority of muslims (if not all) would hate us for sure and would do anything at their reach to give us payback.

Well maybe there own people can prevent them from attacking us?

I think that's where there going with this, but do the people doing the attacks really care about there own people? nope, all they care about it themselves.

Exactly. This would give them the perfect reason to make any attack on us afterward.

Interesting....so what other deterrents do we have ? Economically ? They don't give a crap. All they care about is their twisted view of Islam.

So what leverage do we have ? Anyone can come up with one deterrent we have ? Or are we just fighting a lost cause and should we just throw in the towel and convert to make the extremists happy ?

realistically, we just go on with our lives and try to pretend like it doesn't exist, only giving lip service to the cause when it is politically right to do so...we sit around and contimplate over beer what might happen and why the world is f00ked up, wishing things were better, but back to our lives we go.....and ONLY when it affects us directly and deliberately will we (as a society) start to REALLY care.

That, is the truth.

I wouldn't agree with bombing them intentionally.... However it shouldn't be a safe guard for enemys' to be firing from.

There is no real solution to this problem... But I am in favor of maintaining our stance in protecting the innocent as best we can vs. adopting their insane tactics of sacrificing the public for their twisted cause...

The solution is simple... systematic genocide. However this country does not have the stomach for that anymore.

I think its real simple, pull out of Iraq, stop selling arms to the middle east, stop all support for Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel, withdraw from the Middle East. No good reason to be there except that we want to control their vast oil and gas fields.

Its really that simple

no, it's not.

they will follow us home. they won't just stop playing ball because we decided to forfeit. they will stop at nothing but utter destruction of the zion race, and any sign of weakness is an open floodgate.

sorry bro, but nothing is easy anymore.
