Should Muhammed Ali be locked up?

David Neiwart asks the question:
My first question to them is: Do we intern Muslim Americans? Or just Arab Americans? If they answer the latter, then the next question immediately arises: Then what about all those non-Arab Muslims who are likewise implicated by association with Al Qaeda? You know -- the Pakistanis and Indians, the Bangladeshis, the Malaysians and Indonesians and Filipinos? They are, after all, racially distinct. Should we round them up too? If not, then what good are we doing just rounding up Arabs? Aren't we letting a lot of potential Al Qaeda operatives roam free? All right, then say they answer the former -- intern all Muslims. That raises the next question: Then are they now willing to intern all those black Americans, like Muhammad Ali, who have converted to Islam?
David David David. You just don't understand. Muscular leadership doesn't need all that wishy-washy second-guessing. It just...knows...what the right thing to do is and it does it. Questioning the long-term implications is just another way to try and weaken them. Sap them of their precious bodily fluids, as it were.
