Just an old retired girl from Ontario (though sometimes, I'm just tired). Retired photographer, doing freelance and stuff for fun now. Not very politically motivated, but there are some things that can get me riled up some...
The problem with that is the members of the jihad.
Even if "the other" side (US/Canada, the rest of the world) decided to quit, the jihad would not.
The root cause is their ideals. As far as they're concerned, the entire world needs to live under their regime.
Thank you, but no.
Frankly, I'm on the side who just wants to nuke them. That's problematic too, since they aren't all in one place, and they aren't all able to be identified visibly. Because one dresses like a muslim does not make one a member of the terrorist group.
I won't pretend to know the answer, but unless individuals fight back, I see no real way out. These people kill if you refuse to join.
