the real war will start after the victory... the possible insurgency is
nothing compared to the more-than-Herculean tasks of bringing back tens
of million of brainwashed people to reality and put an entire country
from 1950s to 2010s... go figure.

Best regards from Italy,
dott. Piergiorgio.

This article sounds like the Army needs to set up a list of people with
'Suspected dangerous intentions due to radical views'. Frequent but
discreet checks should be made on them.

There is no need to restrict this to Muslims, for instance feminists who
believe that baby boys should be starved to death would also be eligible.

A person is presumed innocent until proven guilty, so just saying
unpopular things in barracks should not get them kicked out of the
military. Although I may think three times before giving them nuclear
weapons.
