Speaking to number one below......it's FALLUJAH AGAIN

Two years after U.S. assault on it, Fallujah returns to insurgent hands

FALLUJAH, IRAQ - When insurgents hid a bomb in front of his house a few days ago, intending to use it against U.S. or Iraqi troops, Majeed al-Rawi had only one option: Move out.

"If I report it to the Americans, I will be killed by the men who put it there, and if I don't, my family will be killed either by the explosion or the Americans," the car dealer said. "This is not a way to live; this is a way to hate life."

In recent months, insurgents have filtered back into the city, despite tight controls that limit access to only six checkpoints. Residents must submit to an extraordinary identification system that includes fingerprinting, retina scans and bar-coded identification cards.

An insurgent intimidation campaign has killed two City Council members and at least 30 police officers.

The campaign has been so effective that police patrols have all but stopped, as officers fear to walk the streets.

I think it is clear that Arabs don’t have the capacity and commitment to secure, via the rule of law, a peaceful and civil order. It only takes a few to scare a whole town into submission. The legendary fatalism and passivity of Arab/Islamic culture makes for poor soil to plant a vibrant civilized self-ruled liberal order. From my experience the Arab/Islamic choice is either to submit or make others submit. Liberty is an alien concept. They need another strong-man. We’ve overestimated their ability to embrace a civilized order. It's time for plan B ...

According to their religion liberty is evil. But does Bush know or care?

There are Christian Arabs too. They may not be as freedom loving as Americans, but they do value it.

Religion matters. Cultures are not equal or compatible.

There has never been, for instance, a Christian Palestinian suicide bomber.

Religion does matter, and the culture produced by Islam is degenerate.
