I can just see Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley straddling the warhead as it drops onto the towelheads in Mecca.

US military course taught officers 'Islam is the enemy'

GO

It isn't terribly surprising. That does not make it any less disgusting.

In reply to:
The course on Islam had been taught since 2004, but was not part of the required core curriculum. It was offered five times a year, with about 20 students each time.

Sounds like this is one person acting out, not an institutionalized/officially condoned hatred, especially when the course was shut down immediately upon the higher-ups finding out about it.

I do believe that Islam itself is a major cause of the constant violence in the middle east. It's a religion that doesn't teach equality for women, doesn't emphasize forgiveness, and encourages fundamentalism. In my mind fundamentalism of any kind (The strict adherence to a set of beliefs without concern for reason or evidence) is one of the greatest evils this planet has seen.
