Apparently we're not giving Muslims enough attention
Remember back in 2005 when irate Muslims around the world got their collective panties in a bunch over the Danish cartoons of Mohammad? Well apparently they're still pissed.....
From YahooNews -- COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Police in Denmark and Sweden halted an imminent terrorist attack Wednesday by arresting five men who planned to shoot as many people as possible in a building housing the newsroom of a paper that published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, officials said.
The sheer irrationality of the world's Muslims boggles the mind. It just doesn't make any sense that they would still be upset about the cartoons enough to kill people over it 5 years later. I think they just want attention like spoiled, petulant children and the grown-ups' attention is elsewhere on the economy, winter weather, North Korea, border violence, etc.
We should probably throw them a bone every now and then by dropping a bomb on some remote village or making a big show of arresting some random Muslims somewhere. Blatantly violating some American Muslims' civil rights every now and then is a small price to pay for pacifying the true radicals who'll actually try to kill us if they think our attention isn't on them.
