    Definitely. The terrorists radicalize their children beginning when they are toddlers, also their women. They all have to be killed like Trump says.

    Please tell me you're being satirical.

    There is one exception. We are commanded to kill the enemies of Jesus (in Luke 19:27).

    I am dead serious. It's also what Jesus says to do.

    The Bible is the only rules we should follow.

    It's a hard question, one that really doesn't have a perfect answer. Religious indoctrination of any kind makes me sick, but a radical group of violence is despicable.

    The story also included this quote from Trump:

    "You have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. They care about their lives, don't kid yourself. When they say they don't care about their lives, you have to take out their families," Trump said Wednesday."

    Seems like a straight forward call to take out their family.

    It was really bizarre to say the least. They taught them on how to throw grenades, shoot rifles and pistols. I let my son watch Cailou and Paw Patrol on my tablet. They show their kids videos of Isis bombings and war.

    At the same time, this has been going on long before ISIS. What separates ISIS is their effective use of social media and (I hate to use this term) public relations.

    I person who believes they are pleasing their god by strapping explosives to themselves and killing you is walking towards you.

    You mean to tell me your reaction to the person is based on how old they are.

    Someone from one of those "most countries" echoes that.
    And I'm getting a quote for having the Atlantic widened, just in case we need to take precautions after the next presidential election.

    President Obama is being let down.
    He said the US "will not be terrorised"
    I see good evidence that a number of prominent people already are.

    Loss of sense of proportion to danger, with reactions that are overreactions.
    Overblown emotions leading to outbursts of intemperate and ill-considered speech
    An apparent absence of cool, calm thought and planning.
    And a lack of awareness that this is all making the terrorists job easier for them.

    (Details and examples available if required).

    Don't think people are finding something like that problematic. It's the idea that we shouldn't just kill terrorists but also people who happen to be related to terrorists (especially if that would include children) in order to "defeat terrorism"* that people have problems with.

    * Not to mention the fact that it would probably be counter productive in the first place and would simply give people a new grievance that could be used to promote radicalization and for pro terror propaganda.

    Going around killing noncombants on purpose is an easy way to swell the ranks of people willing to fight the US.

    Or just look or talk funny. Shibboleths are just so handy for profiling. It's biblical.

    Precisely. Tony Blair was told this before the invasion of Iraq, and ignored true advice. Has nothing been learned?
    "Ohio governor John Kasich said the president's strategy was "not enough" and called for the US to deploy ground troops against IS."

    Exactly. The radical Muslims call it a holy war. Doing this would only give them more propaganda to use on Muslims who are still developing.

    So you don't want to throw the rule book out the window, after all...

    Could be that you'd like to believe that, but when he was later asked to clarify the meaning (which it seems to me is what matters more) he said what I reported above. Again, that's from the article.

    Who here never thought they'd see the day when Christians seriously talking about killing innocent children in cold blood as necessary and proper?

    *raises hand*
