Every day I go to many different Internet sites to read about what is going on in America. I find that everything that I read indicates that the USA is going down tubes. I know a person can’t believe what some of those sites report on because a lot of it is written to promote themselves and attract readers and they don’t care if it’s the truth or not. So they often make matters seem worse then what they really are. But some of it can be legitimate and after verifying with multiple sites you can see where there is truth in some stories. Also another thing that helps is when a video is shown on a report and the person that reports it is the main speaker in the video. There's video evidence then. I should say that one specific person that I see on a video that babbles I will never believe. I don’t have to name that certain person because most people would know to whom I am referring.
All that said, I have noticed for the past couple of years that Radical Islamists have been getting away with most everything that they do and to some people it seems that just trying to talk to them will change their minds. No, those people will not change their mind because they were brought up to think the way they do and most of them have been brainwashed from day one. That’s why I say talking to them will not bring them into this century. They will always try to go back to the dark ages. Trying to make friends with that kind of people is futile. Now I’m talking specifically about the radicals that use God as an excuse to kill and butcher Christians and burn churches. We all know that is to put fear into people to believe in what they believe and convert to Islam.
This is a big part of the reason the US is a big mess. They have the same problem dealing with foreign issues that they do with domestic issues - misguided leadership, unclear ideas, and bad decision-making.
