If you wanted some sort of Ideological purity, you'll get none of that from me.
Does Russia have the right to send troops to America to take out MS-13 because they may be a threat to them in the future?

9/11 Thermate experiments
Eze 22:25 There's a conspiracy of prophets within her....
"I am so %^&*^ sick of this cult of Ron Paul. The Paulites. What is with these %^&*^ people? Why are there so many of them?" YouTube rant by "TheAmazingAtheist"
"We as a country have lost faith and confidence in freedom." -- Ron Paul
But if he is really interested in that , he may want to check out Honduras first.....
I still need paid for my tip though
Islamic Terrorism seems to be based on the teachings of Sayyid Qutb: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qutbism
These beliefs basically liken Western interventionism to imperialism and the crusades and promote a violent solution to restoring Muslim society and sovereignty. So yes, as Ron Paul predicted in 1996, we did indirectly cause 9/11.
It does exist and unfortunately, there's no way to stop it. The best thing we can do is pull out out troops and bases in Middle Eastern countries and remove ourselves as much as possible from any involvement in that region. If we can at least eliminate the blow back aspect of the violence, then we'll be off to a better start. I don't know how much terrorism we'd face after that but if we strengthen our defense here at home, we should be better off.
Sure, it exists. That doesn't mean it's much of a threat, though, really. Yes, someone might occasionally sneak in here and kill some people (or attack us overseas if we make it more convenient by going closer to the various centers of Islamic radicalism). But things like diabetes, medical errors, and car accidents are going to continue to be orders of magnitude more lethal than Islamic terrorism. And by ignoring it we would eventually remove the motive to commit such acts.
It should be obvious given the government's reaction after 9/11 that they don't really regard it as a threat either. They could have insisted on armored cockpit doors, clamped down hard on visas to a whole slew of countries (Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Pakistan), and initiated aggressive profiling. They did none of these things and instead used it as a pretext for a war that had been on their agenda for some time anyway.
Zoroastrianism, indigenous religion of Persia that was reduced to a fringe minority after the Islamic conquest. Many fled to India. To this day, one cannot convert to Zoroastrian, you must be born within a Zoroastrian family.
Christian persecution in Iran:
“Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, an Iranian Christian charged with leaving Islam, has received a local trial courts final verdict, according to sources close to his legal team, and may now be executed for leaving Islam,” CNN reports.
Ex-Muslim Hindu reverts back to Hinduism, shows historical paintings depicting Muslims torturing, slaughtering Hindus in India.
Islamic extremism is a real threat to the world. Since the birth of Islam, we have seen this religion inflict terror on many cultures that surrounded it. Long, long before there was an American Empire or British Empire fooling around in the Middle East. Thankfully they are becoming more secular as these nations become westernized. We can't foresee how Iraq's freedom of religion will change the Middle East 20 or so years from now.
