The piece by Dick Yarbrough in Saturday’s Times was as right to the point as anything I have ever read. Muslims do want it both ways. I agree with every sentence in that column.

Why can they say anything derogatory about Christ and the other religions, but we criticize Mohammed, we deserve to die? Every time a Muslim fanatic does some demonic act, I can’t find any Muslim group condemning it.

The U.S. government was shy in keeping an eye on Maj. Hasan and, as a result, 14 very brave solders were murdered. I’ve had it with these people and with the timid response of the government, whose duty is to protect its citizens and our military. Let’s all remember this when we go to the polls next election.
