Very sad that we feel we must be in another country killing people and that they feel they must kill us in return.
Perhaps if we take a moment and reflect we will understand that we might just possibly do the same thing if someone came here to hurt us.
Hurling insults like mindless ragheads only adds to the hate. As they are "different" from us we also also different from them.

Randy, I would suggest you learn about the mind set of the leaders in those Arab countries. My wife and I talk to several families in Iran and they are not any different than you and me; however the religious leaders are something else. They still hate all Christians beginning back to the Christian Crusades. They don't forget and needless to say they don't forgive.

I agree that we should get out of Iraq as soon as possible. Hopefully we will set up a gov and an economy that will force them to get out of the 1st century.

There is so little trust with the young people who must serve in their military that when the troops are issued guns they are not given bullets. Our friend from Iran went through basic training and never fired a practice shot with his rifle. Never was given any ammunition. My speculation on this is that the leaders are afraid the weapons will be turned on them.

Randy, should our government oppress us in the way the governments do to their people, I would be the first to rise up against them. However, after saying that I can assure you that I would not indiscriminitly kill our citizens, especially children, in order to achieve some end. They do this and say it is justified. Their Coran (bible) says it is justified. You must know their culture and their leadership before you can really sympathize with them. Regardless of your feelings, you would never be accepted into their way of life, but quite the contrary you would in all probability be killed with the rest of us. Three short words to follow: Know your enemy.

Not sympathizing, just sad. Simple as that.
Sure I wouldn't be accepted in their way of life. Then again I'm used to not being accepted.

do you live on Randy? Don't you know that the radical terriorist are killing their own countrymen. And, if that ain't mindless, I don't know what is. They are killing innocent people because they have been brainwashed into thinking it's ok. For heaven sake Randy wake up.

I'm wide awake. To me it's just sad we must kill each other.
WE are also killing innocent people.

True. Maybe one day they will have real smart bombs and kill only the bad people.

Randy I believe everthing you say . BUT who started it ? Their bible says kill all non belivers I'm sory but im a christian and I believe for an eye for an eye. If we don't take them out they take us out and thats the way it is . Half the problem is you dogooders trying to save the world . Go smoke some more dope

I can't believe ...    Posted 12-21-2004 at 16:26:41       [Reply]  [No Email]
... I am getting in on this one but here goes.

The Muslim religeon does not encourage the slaughter of non-believers. Most religeons STRONGLY discourage disbelief. Some Believers take that scripture to the point of death. We normal folks call that being a Radical. In all religeons there are radical and orthodox believers. Typically these are the extremes of any religeon. No, I am not saying that Orthodox Jews/Greeks/Catholics/Snake Charmers/or whatever are killers. The radicals will twist scripture to mean anything that suits their agenda. If death is what they believe is the appropriate punishment, they will turn a simple scriptural statement into marching orders for people to die.

Christianity has its own history of bloodshed for non-believers. So does the more conservative Catholicism. If you look back at Pagan religeon, the same applies. Same with the Incas and Aztec religeons. Bloodshed is the result of different beliefs.

The comments posted above are totally appropriate because the actions in Iraq hit close to home to every one of us. This is the country that believes and encourages people to sayt what they want. I may get slammed on this board for this reply but I wont get arrested and jailed.

Koran- Surah 9:26?

Sounds like you read from the same Bible.
Not sure why I'm a dogooder in your eyes, but oh well.
As for the smoke some more dope, sorry never have. Or drank either, just look like I do.

Loosen your dreadlocks, Randy. :-)
None of us like seeing our soldiers killed.
We are there to try to deter any more "radical muslims" from thinking they can attack us here and not have to pay a price (besides suicide).

If we do nothing, we appear weak to them.
Like the French and Spanish do, and are gradually being invaded by muslims who move in and try to control the government eventually. They would like to accomplish that here, too. Their goal is muslim control of the world, then we would see how much freedom we would have.
