Luxury and Massacre|

* The luxury of a long conversation is a great luxury indeed.
* What the Pilgrims, conquistadors, and other settlers did in the name of their Christian God to found the USA is no different from terrorist attacks in the name of a Muslim God. Thing is, would people still do these things even if they didn't have a religion to justify these horrible acts. I believe that they would find some other justification. Knowing that casualties in a conventional battle would be heavy, the European settlers sought to massacre a small group of Indians to set an example and instill fear in the hearts of the rest of the Indian clans. In one case, they set fire to giant wigwams, slaughtering any Indians that sought to escape. The Indians would either burn or bleed; it was either the smell of blood or the smell of seared flesh. All of this was justified by passages from the Bible. The recent attack on the World Trade Center (9/11/1) is an attack on these successful settlers, albeit 400 years later. In the WTC, victims had the choice to either burn or jump. The Islamic terrorists seek a battle on their own terms, one that they have potential to win. The terrorism of today is just like the terrorism of early settlers.
If you break the heart, then the mind will surely follow.
This is the basic strategy. Massacre to instill fear, then dominate the fearful.
