Instead of opening military bases we should be opening universities.

Actually, that's what they're doing. Madrassas in western countries. Lots of them. Funded and staffed by Wahhabis. And they all seem to be radical (though I concede that could be reporting bias).

Also, I should point out that many of the extremists are university graduates. Mohammed Atta attended universities in Cairo and Germany. Again, I concede 1 data point does not determine a trend, and there may be reporting biases. But somehow these bright folks (at least some of them) can get university educations and still turn radical. Seems to be something about Islam, or being raised in an Islamic society.
