It is a choice. It is a very ignorant and backwards choice. Like Christianity.

Choose reason. Abandon religion and hate.

As I catch up on past events (I don’t know why our Libyan intervention got such a pass with regard to U.S. reporting and public discourse), the sheer boneheadedness of deposing Gaddafi, absence of an effective plan to fill the resulting power-vacuum, and disregard for multiple competing Libyan factions and consequent killing, etc. are beyond alarming.

These shortfalls are indicative of sheer incompetence on par with that of George W. Bush.

And the title truthfully should be:
Chaos in the Middle East: It’s the Islam, stupid.
