I am glad these Mother F*%$& were caught. They would actually blow
up the Sears Tower, something a muslim man made. I don't even
think its American owned. Doesn't A Japanese company own it now?
Who lets these jerks into this country?

Quoting DeltaGator (Reply 6): The thing that amuses me is they have been said to be targeting the Sears Tower up in Chicago which IIRC the lead architect or construction engineer was arabic and Muslim (Iranian I think.)
Fazlur R. Khan was East Pakistani (Now Bengladesh). He was also a professor
at my College (Long Before I went there) IIT.
Poor education and stereotyping on my part. My bad.

Thank you. I remember his involvement in the Sears Tower because after we had visited the observation deck one day and went back to the office the cabbie asked us if we knew that the lead guy was Muslim. When I responded I remember reading somethng about that he went off on a diatribe about how Americans hate Muslims and how we will have Jihad visited upon us and the other Islamofascist talking points.
I was a bit worried that something was going to burst in this guy's head and they would find us dead in a back alley somewhere. Luckily we got to the office and I gave him a big tip and got us the Hell out of there.

A terrorist cannot have a religion. The real muslims,christians, jewishes or the members of other religions don't make terrorism. Even they say they have got religion, it is so clear that it is not TRUE.
So don't say 100% of the terrorists are muslim. All the terrorist are deserved to be punished as much as it can.

I think that the arrests are a good thing if it's true that the suspects did indeed engage in the plots that the media has described. I will be following this story with some interest, as the FBI is due to provide more information on this matter later this morning.

"Virtually 100% of the active terrorists today are muslim"
I am curious if President Bush is also muslim. Do you have any idea?
Without endorsing the view that virtually all active terrorists today are Muslim, I think it is rather incorrect to imply that the President is a terrorist. On what basis would such a charge be made?
Sadly, the likes of the regrettable Michael Moore might agree that the President is a "terrorist", and indeed, even a luminary such as the ponderous John Kerry himself said it should be Iraqi troops and not American soldiers who "terrorize" Iraqi citizens by rousting them from slumber in the middle of the night. (Both, I think, are rather questionable comments, to say the least.) But I hope one realizes that such descriptions are far from those that could be legally or, I think, rationally defensible. I doubt very much that the President of the European Union would so warmly engage President Bush, as was done in the recent U.S.-EU summit in Austria, if it were true that our President is a "terrorist" in any way.
Of course, your opinion could vary, and that is your right.
let's dispose of the political correctness, shall we?
