i think the quote was, if you trade in safety at the cost of freedom, you deserve neither.

And silly enough, he is right, if you take away part of the terror, terrorism loses effectiveness.

Terrorism is "cause and effect"? WTF!

Okay, you don't like our foreign policy so naturally you would want to murder a bunch of unarmed civilians to make your point. Bomb a few weddings or school busses. Cause & Effect! It's our fault. Of course! Why didn't a I see it before. Someone should tell Washington about this revelation!

What if the terrorist's one goal is to make you agree to join a religion. There can be no compromise with islam short of capitulation.

I also find it kinda sad that he has to be Captain Obvious to a degree, but seems someone has to be. You can thank folks like Ayn Rand for why there so many unsympathetic folks out there, buy that's just my opinion. Overall it was a good talk.

I liked it well enough, but, this seems inherently obvious to me, guess. You don't very often see folks from the US or Western Europe blowing up things. And I mean Muslim, Jews, Christian or agnostics. Why? Because, relatively speaking, things are pretty darned comfortable. Sure, we argue over politics and football, but, for the most part, we aren't blowing each other up.

The difference? Exactly as he says (or implied): poverty, unemployment, health, hopelessness. You attack those things and terrorism dies, save for the occasional loon that'll always show up here and there in ANY society.

I really liked this. Don't think he should have dressed like Kurt Cobain though. That distracted me through the whole talk.
