Not sure why anyone would want to be so mean to us as we are a peace loving, freedom giving, liberating nation.

Now Stella, explain why Islamofascists have detonated bombs in dozens of other countries.

What's to explain, Leroy? They're insane and violent, the fundamentalist Muslims. They do seem to be a tiny minority of Muslims worldwide, though.

So what do you think we should do about them?

Why, more assault rifles, of course. They should be mandatory standard issue to every teacher in the country and sales should subsidized at gun shows and flea markets. More police in tactical military gear with no id on the uniform, martial law with curfews, and drones in a saturation pattern across the country.

Jeez, you guys. What the hell does it take?

Oh, wait. I forgot: the Great Wall. First on the southern border, then the northern. None of this chain link fence crap. We need 7500 miles of Berlin Wall.

We can mine the east and west shorelines while we're building.

The U.S. has killer drones operating in at least six countries and "special forces" operating in many more. Funny how these strange, primitive, people seem to get angry when they're invaded, bombed, occupied, and have dictators imposed on them.

Another chapter in the Boston story:

Body of Missing Student at Brown Is Discovered
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/26/us/su ... .html?_r=0

"The family of Sunil Tripathi, a Brown University student who disappeared last month — and was briefly misidentified as a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings — confirmed Thursday that his body had been found near Providence, R.I...
Last Thursday, shortly after the F.B.I. released grainy surveillance photographs of the two men they believed were the Boston bombers, some Internet users began to speculate that Mr. Tripathi might be one of them. They began posting messages suggesting as much on the Facebook page the family used to raise awareness about their search for Mr. Tripathi. As the policed pursued the two suspects on a fiery chase through the Boston area, the rumor spread, leading news vans to stake out the Tripathis’s family home in Bryn Mawr, Pa., and reporters to make dozens of calls to the Tripathi family’s cellphones."
