Let me guess, you called them "towelheads", didn't you? Dude, if you don't think that's a slur of *some* kind, you're an idiot. I suppose you don't see anything wrong with "wetback" either.

First, not everyone who wears a turban is Islamic. Did you ever even bother to find out if maybe they're Sikhs?? Have you ever talked to these people at *all*?

Second, not everyone who *is* islamic or Arabic are our "enemies". If and when this conflict comes to a head in the middle east, you can rest assured that there will be arabs and Islamic people on BOTH sides of the conflict. Making this into a holy war or a crusade is *exactly* what the terrorists *want* us to do. We cannot stoop to that.

Third, this is absolutely *not* how Americans act. We are better than that. I don't give a $%#@ if Osama bin Laden himself is running that fast food joint, it's *NOT* your place to do anything like what you have proposed. Make no mistake about it, your proposed action is no better than what was done to us on Tuesday. You're a dispicable, heartless, ignorant little turd if you think otherwise.
