Focus on Mexico, not Syria

If you are religious, you probably dislike Muslims. If you are not religious, you probably hate Muslims.

Have you seen or heard a Muslim railing against the jihadists, demanding them to end their disgusting behavior? Have you seen evidence of Muslims trying to assimilate into the cultures of Western or European countries they invade?

Have you seen Catholics from Mexico preaching the killing of Americans or citizens of other Western countries? Would you call attempts by Mexicans to infiltrate America sabotage or industrious? Would you describe Mexicans as lazy and wanting to live off American charity, or hard-working and wanting to live off their own efforts?

Americans are softhearted. Nobody likes what is happening in Syria. Nobody likes what is not happening in Mexico. I suggest Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Israel, Russia and China confront all Muslim countries, demanding proper behavior or isolationism (loss of trade). I further suggest America focus on programs with Mexico that promote industry and employment for both countries. Quit wasting time, lives and resources in the Middle East. Focus on what is important to us.

America can dictate peace everywhere by demanding it, or else. What? Remember what ended World War II? Hiroshima! We forgot immediately!
