Rosie O'Donnell makes a splash on The View

So what was it exactly the creampuff said on her new show the View? Try this on for size:

"Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America"

Are you joking? Can she really be serious? Christians aren't out there trying to come up with creative new ways to build a better IED that will kill as many innocent civilians as possilbe. Christians didn't blow up the World Trade Center. We're fighting a islamofascist ideology that spans all of southeast Asia and is not relegated to any single country. We can't pinpoint the source of terrorism to only Iran, Iraq, or any other country, we've got to get them where ever they hide. And long ago we made the point that we would not distinguish between the terrorists and the people who fund or harbor them. That puts a lot of the Middle East in the target. Fortunately the president has realized that we can't just go balls out and invade the entire region and kill anything that moves (as satisfying as that may be) because then we'd be no better than the terrorists. Some countries can be invaded and have their despots toppled, others must be forced to change and become allies via more diplomatic means. Still, at no point are we ever targeting civilians. Are civilians caught in the cross fire? Yes, and it's tragic. But the 2996 that died on September 11th weren't caught in the middle of a fight; they were the targets. They were murdered. The terrorists do not discriminate; they simply kill.

So Rosie while you're ranting about Christians, why not slam the Jews too? They were hunting down and killing any Hezbollah agent they could find, and some civilians lost their lives in the process. Nevermind that Hezbollah used innocent women and children as human shields... But hey, what do you know? Amnesty International has come out and accused Hezbollah of, wait for it now, war crimes since they *gasp* targeted innocent civilians. Who'd have thunk it? Terrorists targeting civilians... it's not like that's the first time that's happened... Ignore for the moment that this levels the playing field, boosting a terrorist orgainiztion to the same level as a country. AI has said terrorists are bad. I had to read the story twice to make sure I wasn't hallucinating...

So Rosie, why don't you go back to your daytime fluff show and pine some more about Tom "I've locked myself in the closet" Cruise and leave the politics to people with half a brain.
