If the terrorist are not Islamic then it just comes off as PC BS. I simply do not understand why Islamic terrorism, which is 90% of the terror in the world, gets tip toed around so much.

Because there's nothing new to say about that? Because if audiences wanted to watch Islamic terror stories they could watch the news instead? Because 90% of real life is boring so nobody makes action films about that 90%?

Sorry, rek, but that's kind of asinine. There's always something new a good filmmaker can say, about virtually any topic. Plus, I've seen "Stratton", and it sucks mightily. Boring and predictable, lame action. Same old post-"Die Hard"-style Germanic villain, same old white guys making safe movies where white guys are the evil ones. Pretty tiring, really.
