We have a very dear family friend who, with his wife, is Druize (sp?) Muslim and there couldn't be kinder people on the face of the earth. I agree - it is specifically the Terrorist Nation which lives in autonomous cells via the internet with whom we are now at war. BUMP!
Chuck--you hit the nail on the head. Only a leftist thinks of these demented killers as "religious". They sing the tunes of the communists and carry out the missions of the communists. What are the chances of Bin Laden training pilots to hijack a Chinese plane and crash it into the Great Wall or the Forbidden City? Less than zero. Of course, we aren't supposed to suggest that anyone is a communist--the cold war is over, right?

Islam essentially advocates peace and Islamic nations have, historically, been tolerant, albeit condescendingly, toward Christians, Jews, and other minorities living in their lands.
Dhimmitude is not tolerance.
I have seen the communist Muslims before, but Osama is not one of them.
Remember, Osama sort of FOUGHT A WAR against the Russians...

Just my two cents but the only Russian involvement I could see is the Russian Mafia. However, they are so greedy and this can't be good for business. They have their fingers in many pies in NY and probably lost money from this. I can see that this doesn't help the Chinese in their plans due to it's timing (still too early for them, a couple of years from now then it would help). Several areas that they are spreading their influence to may become parking lots. Heightened US security and possible better border security doesn't help their plans either. The only reason I can think of for Chinese support of this is that their "day in the sun" is over in regards to the cooperation from the previous administration. Once all of the "Clinton" is squeezed out of our government ( still not done yet), it will be too late for them. Maybe they thought it was now or never.
