A sidenote on the Spanish cosenquts of the Americas; the single most powerful weapon they had was viral: smallpox (and other nasty Eurasian diseases, why the Spanish infected Native Americans and not vice versa is even more beside the point in this discussion). Corte9z was forced to flee in 1520 and returned later to conquer a nation decimated by the virus and for all purposes unable to fight back. Smallpox also spread into the Incan empire before Pizarro arrived and plunged the nation into a costly civil war. Pizarro was able to capture the young Sapa Inca by deceit and in a few years up to a staggering 90% of the Inca population had been annihilated by smallpox and weakened by other diseases.When European explorers first reached inland North America they found dead ghost cities and remains of cultures they never came face to face with. Again, the disease had marched before them. Smallpox wiped out entire populations, killing millions.What is the smallpox radical Islam would inflict upon us? Immigration?Dunno. This calls for a beer.
