Winning hearts and minds - not the Republican strategy

uber-xenophobe Rep. Tom Tancredo, (R - Colorado and future presidential hopeful) has announced that America could bomb Islamic holy sites in retaliation for attacks on American interests.
"Well, what if you said something like — if this happens in the United States, and we determine that it is the result of extremist, fundamentalist Muslims, you know, you could take out their holy sites," Tancredo answered.

"You're talking about bombing Mecca," Campbell said.

"Yeah," Tancredo responded.

How about a swift apology because I'm pretty sure I hear jihadists from around the Middle East making a beeline for Iraq.
