I've been giving it some thought for a week or so now.  In light of the events in Quebec and Ottawa last week, I have been asking myself, why don't the so called liberals get the point.  Now I'm no nuke 'em all and let god sort it out type, I enlisted back in the day (if I may borrow from so many police forces), to serve and protect.  I'm all for trying to talk out problems.  However, there do seem to be some people you can't talk to. 

Back in my school days, we didn't ask bullies to be nice, we met them in the parking lot after class, and either they went down or you did.  I can't say that it was the best way, but if you won, the bully shut up, if you lost, well then you kept trying until you did. 

So I think that the time has come to take a stand. I don't know if these jihadist groups can be completely stopped, but they should know that there is a penalty for trying to export their violence and xenophobia to the rest of the world. 

The sad thing is, I don't think the people of the western democracies have the will to pay the price this may cost in treasure or blood.  We don't seem to have the same sense responsibility and willingness to make the necessary sacrifices that our grandparents had.  I think we have become a little to spoiled and soft, scared of losing all the little perks of our highly technological society.  But some things require defense with blood.  Who was it that said, "Pay any price, bear any burden."

I know that these Islamic fundamentalists claim that the west is trying to corrupt their ancient traditions and customs, and there's no doubt truth in those claims.  But a society that doesn't change to adapt to new conditions in the world around it isn't maintaining it's traditions, it's stagnating.
