Why on earth was this not done earlier? Was it because everyone was hoping the crocodile would eat them last?:In addition to lack of leadership and lack of will, there's also the delusional political correctness that seems to have taken over our institutions. It seems rather obvious that ISIS and al Qaeda are derived of Islam, and it's also true that most Muslims are not radical terrorists – but our “leaders” seem unable to recognize and accept this.
