    If the Islamic community is so offended, and hates the west as much as it appears to, why do they not declair war? I can't see what they think they will achieve by burning flags, killing peacemakers and shouting threats such as "Death to America!", "Insult our Prophet and die!", etc.. Why not cut the foreplay and declair war if they are so enraged and powerful? My thought is they really don't have any brains at all.

    Do you not have any original thoughts? It would seem not. Please refrain from the discussion then, as this was intended to provoke serious and well-thought discussion. Thankyou kindly, now stay away.

    The Islamic world isn't a unified force, there are even divisions between ideologies within the community.

    Theres no Islamic army, no Islamic base of operations. So that's why they can't declare war, just ram the word jihad out and hope people riot enough.

    The "Islamic world" is not a person. It is a collection of millions of people in different countries. It would be like herding cats - many fundamentalist Muslims hate each other more than they hate the West!

    A country can declare war. Many countries are Islamic, are showing protest and hatred towards the west. Why not declare war? Or are they just cowards, in reality..

    They do. That's why they're not declaring war.

    Disagree. They aren't declaring war because they don't have any power with which to defeat the west.

    Not sure what you've been thinking up til now but an angry disorganised mob doesn't have the authority to declare a war.

    Check the title, you'll see your point has no strength. Also, "can't", not "cant". If we're resorting to such low measures.

    Think harder. A country can declare war. Many Islamic countries hate the west and are showing protest and being threatening - from extremists/terrorists to government officials. Why not start a war?

    That was your second hollow post in less than 10 minutes. Please, stay away from the thread - if you want to troll, may I suggest youtube be more fitting for you.

    Only a tiny minority of government officials in these countries desire war with Western countries, ergo they aren't going to declare war.

    The muslim world isn't really a unit, not like it could coordinate an attack. Plus their military strength wouldn't really rival that of their opponents.
    This. It isn't as if every muslim is up in arms about this stupid video, though a lot do care about a piece of poorly performed acting thrown together by a bunch of idiots.
