My responses to The Daily Show's comments;
From another perspective: Ideology is just an idea, a thought... free speech. Fox News often uses free speech to slander and smear people (especially lack people & other non-whites) that if we were to stop them they would have political strategy lef
From yet another perspective: Although many terrorist groups originate amoungst the KKK & the Neo Nazi's ( US: Militia members plotted to kill federal officials, prosecutors say ) not all of them are violent, so we don't exterminate all KKK & American Neo-Nazis (especially since genocide is normally considered to be a bad thing). IN the same way, simply a group being anti-American is not a good reason to attack them, especially after we created so many enemies around the world with our foreign policy. Reagan with his death squads has certainly created anti-American ideology in South & Central America AND they are certainly not Muslims.
These statistics explain why Obama is suddenly taking action in Syria. (GOP-Republicans create their own reasons to take action)
If 65% of people did not support airstrikes in Syria Obama wouldn't have made them. It's that simple.
Obama claims we have had a successful anti-terrorism policy in Yemen & Somalia
Petraeus and the signature of U.S. terror: The CIA pressures Obama to step up indiscriminate attacks in Yemen
The United States should be encouraging non-violence in Yemen, respect for human rights and the rule of law. Instead, we have engaged in lawless violence, denying our own citizens fundamental due process.
From Salon: The face of collateral damage Photos of missile debris help trace the path of a CIA drone missile that killed a young girl
The civilian massacre the US neither confirms nor denies
This sort of model of response will probably gain ISIS/ISIL SOME recruits, from the poor & disenfranchised or just plain crazy, but not many.
Note: Since this Daily Show video, almost 40 countries have endorsed the campaign.
Historical tidbit: The Ku Klux Klan, a white supremacist group, was designated a terrorist group in 1871 by Congress.
After all these years, KKK/Neo-Nazis is not so terror oriented is it? Or is it?
