I agree with you that the Islamists are trying to advance thier religion and thier control. The Quran explicitly tells them to either by the word or by the sword. The problem is that invading thier countries isn't going to make one bit of difference. What do you mean deal with them like Hitler? Isn't that exactly what we did with Saddam Hussien? We took out thier rullers and tried to build the country back up like we did Germany. Iraq is now on the brink of civil war between the 3 different factions if Iran supported Shiites don't take over anyway. Face it, Arabs aren't Germans and we can't expect them to change into a western country. The real danger from Islam is theier spread by immigration. Just look at the areas of Europe...

If last week's hearing for Chuck Hagel raised questions about his capacity to be secretary of defense, the show trial conducted by his inquisitors on the tribunal raised questions about the GOP.

Is the Republican Party, as currently constituted, even capable of conducting a foreign policy befitting a world power? Or has it learned nothing and forgotten nothing since George W. Bush went home and the nation rejected John McCain for Barack Obama?

Consider the great foreign issues on the front burner today.

Will the Japan-China clash over islets in the South China Sea, now involving warplanes and warships...
