Wear Long Pants Or I'll Kill You

From NewsMax comes a report of rising fears in the Iraqi capital that extremists seeking to force Baghdad residents to follow strict Islamic practices were now targeting men in shorts, liquor stores and even barbers. Gunmen in recent months have even killed people drinking beer along the banks of the Tigris river.

Last week, gunmen in Baghdad stopped a car carrying a Sunni Arab tennis coach and two of his Shiite players, asked them to step out and then shot them. How insane is that?

Extremists have been distributing leaflets warning people in the mostly Sunni neighborhoods of Saidiyah and Ghazaliyah not to wear shorts, police said.

We must eliminate these lunatics! After the shorts, what next, culottes and capris pants? There is no way to negotiate with or bring into the fold someone who would murder another human being for wearing shorts, drinking a beer or getting a shave. Political correctness be damned, there's no way we can coexist with these psychotics.
