Only heard my Uncles who fought in the Pacific in WWII ever discuss their experiences once in the 20+ years I knew them. And that was after 9/11 and after my cousin made the remark about "not being able to bomb an ideology".
The one who was a Marine and fought in some of the worst battles said: "The hell you can't. Because we did it. These Muslims are no different than the [Imperial] Japanese. The Japs had their suicide bombers too. And we stopped them. What it takes is the resolve and will to use a level of brutality and violence that your generations can't stomach. And until you can, this shit won't stop. It took us on the beaches with bullets, clearing out caves with flame throwers, and men like LeMay burning down their cities killing people by the tens of thousands. And then it took 2 atom bombs on top of it. But if that was what it took to win we were willing to do it. Until you are willing to do the same...well I hope you enjoy this shit, because it ain't going to stop."
-It's not about "tolerance", it's about a lack of balls.
