Killing in the name of

Oh joyous day my nerd homies. It seems Frank Miller is taking on the Dark Knight once again. This time, Al Qaeda is the enemy. RAD. In the article, Miller says he wants to remind everybody of the sorts of people that want to kill them. I agree, you can criticize the Iraq war effort all you want, but AQ wants to kill you regardless.

If you want to read a good book about people who kill in the name of religion, take a look at Terror in the Name of God. Jessica Stern interviews the killers and the recruiters of killers to investigate how people twist the ideas of their faiths into excuses to kill. It's a good read. You see it in remainder bins some times, but don't take that as a bad thing.
