No. By my logic you can never rid all of the Germans and Japanese of the hatred for the US and I can assure you that there are plenty of Japanese who do not like the US, I've been to the country. Gaijin are not welcome everywhere and are reminded of it if when you stumble into a place where you are not allowed. Just because some hold ill will toward outsiders it doesn't mean we bomb the rest of them or occupy the country until they are all converts, that logic is as flawed as the people who hate us.
On the same note I agree with Wal's point about free speech, it is what it is, if someone here speaks about about Islam than so be it, but if you choose to retaliate instead of speak out against those who spoke first, be prepared to get the bull by the horns or in this case the Reaper Drone. The lesson is you don't counteract words with violence unless the words are "we declare war" as backed by a country, not a small percentage of extremists.

And he decides who to free and who to blame

So now we back to "small percentage of extremists" creating havoc and bringing war to the majority of peaceful muslims. Too bad that majority doesn't have the will to take care of their own problems so we don't have to engage in war all around them.
The picture you are painting is the majority of muslims as inept and impotent cowards cringing in fear who one by one get pushed past the breaking point and then become very brave and capable jihadists. If you're correct it's too bad they can't find that inner strength before converting and group together to take on radical islam and end war within their region. Apparently they'd rather be subjugated by radicals than fight for their freedom.

(Before you sheet a brick, i am obviously joking. But isnt it odd that we can be so sure gun control will work here, but our first inclination when a foreign entity threatens us is to run for the guns and "ending" them?)
Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life
Why, I can smile, and murder while I smile,
And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
I can add colours to the chameleon,
Change shapes with Proteus for advantages,
And set the murderous Machiavel to school.
Can I do this, and cannot get a crown?
Think of them as the KKK. A lot of white southerners thought those guys were a bunch of *******s but they didn't go out there at night trying to break up raiding parties. You think they were impotent cowards?
