  •  Well...not that simple maybe. But, the only (0+ / 0-)

    Solutions I can think of are:

    Beef up security
    Better outreach to the Muslim community
    Rational immigration strategy
    Stop invading Islamic countries
    Or do nothing

    I'm not sure which I would support, apart from no more wars and better immigration screening, but what other options are there?

      No more wars for sure - but we're in a predicament - the wars have fostered resentment and given power to some Islamists who seek revenge - I don't think there's negotiating with that segment - look at the Boston bombers - they came to the US as refugees.  We didn't attack them - but they aligned with fringe Islamists and attacked innocent people in a country that invited  them to seek refuge from their oppressors in Russia.

      •  Well right, that would mean even more security (0+ / 0-)

        I'd prefer stopping threats before they get here.
