YouTube bows to pressure, pulls Jihad videos

There is near-universal agreement that incitement to violence should not be protected as free speech so the wonder is that these videos stayed up so long. But Muslims are especially privileged, of course
"Under pressure from US and British officials, YouTube yesterday removed from its site some of the hundreds of videos featuring calls to jihad by Anwar al-Awlaki, a US-born, Yemen-based cleric who has played an increasingly public role in inspiring violence directed at the West. …

The requests took on greater urgency after two powerful bombs hidden in air cargo planes were intercepted en route from Yemen to Chicago on Friday, with the prime suspect being the Yemen-based group with which Awlaki is affiliated, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.”

A small number of strategically-deployed nuclear weapons would really solve many of these issues, if only for the short-term. It only takes a President who actually has a set of balls to assert our proper strength to bring us back to the Superpower status we once enjoyed.
