    Think long and hard before you answer because it will be obvious with your answer of wether you have a clue of what the war on terrorism SHOULD be all about!

    Ok this is from my political study on the subject of terrorism and some of my relationships with Muslim Americans.

    Just like in any religion or ideology there are multiple views. Terrorism involving Islam comes from extremist groups. This could also be said about extremist Christian groups and so forth.

    The CIA World Factbook has the percentage of Muslims in the United States at 1% which equals to around 3 million. One of my best friend's families is Muslim. They are from Iran and have very liberal views. I was told once that they left because things changed, as someone put it, "It went from drinking in the streets and praying in private to drinking in private and praying in the streets." They are law bidding American business owners and they LOVE America.

    So my answer is you can be a good American if you’re a Muslim with non extremist views. But then again most of the country suck as Americans IMO.


    I have a interesting PowerPoint from a professor in terrorism but I don't have it on this computer to post. But here is another question for you to ponder.

    The number of American deaths in The United States caused from terrorist acts from I think it was 1991 - 2004 totaled up to be 250ish a year. Without 9/11 or the April 19th bombing here in Oklahoma City the total of deaths per year drops to .8.

    In 2004 alone there were 42,000 deaths in the United States caused by car wrecks. There are also over 300 deaths per year here because of falling in the bathtub.

    So here is the question. Could the study of car wrecks, like we do terrorism, be more beneficial than the study of how to prevent terrorism in the United States? How is that one for a tough question? Some people argue the reason why everyone in Military and Academia is all about terrorism is because it is sexy now in a post 9/11 world.
