120. Sad but not unexpected.............
And many wonder why Muslims consider this a holy war, a Jihad from the Islamists and a Crusade from the Christians. This is the same thing as a suicide bomber crying out Allah Akhbar as he detonates himself in 1000 pieces. It is making this a war between competing religions rather than a war between two visions for the world - one dominated by Islamic extremists in the form a Sharia theocracy and the other a secular, progressive society that respects women, minorities and provides for the free exercise of religion.

These weapons manufacturers should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The more that we do to make this a religious war, something that Obama for all his short-comings, has fought against, the more entrenched the conflict becomes.
