Yeah. It's like the email that's been going around that list terrorist attacks throughout the last 20-30 years or so and gives multiple choices for each "event". Each one has the choice "Muslim male extremists mostly between the ages of 17 and 40" as a "who did it".
Part of me thinks that it is unfair and not becoming of a "free" society and another part of me says "If the shoe fits...". We cry for the government to protect us, but complain when we realize what they have to do and what we must give up in order for them to do so. I think this next quote sums it up...

Machiavelli said that all democracies were doomed to end up as a military state. We are well on that path.
But anyways, I'm probably going to have to go out and watch The Karate Kid in remembrance of Pat Morita.
