Submitted by Simon (United States), May 29, 2008 at 01:18

Mr. Nishi who needs to read more news or watch more news said

Simon You wrote," The Taliban and AL Qaeda went to war with the U.S. not the Afgani people." This is History according to you, then after Fall & exit of Taliban, with whom you are fighting, the people who are dying are Afghani People or aligns of some other Planet.

The fall of the Taliban you are correct…the ousting of Al Qaeda strong hold out of Afghan and shifted to Pakistani land is true as well. This does not mean they went away. As a matter of fact all of the violence in Afghanistan is do to the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

Simon next sentence You wrote," With respect to Iraq....we went to war not with the Iraqis but with its despot named Saddam." After exit & execution of 'despot named Saddam' with whom you are fighting Uncle Sam, who are the persons who are being killed in last more than five years. Uncle Sam you must be counting your dead whenever a coffin parcel reaches American shore from Afghanistan or Iraq. Kindly count the dead of Iraq anf Afghanistan also.

Thanks be to you sectarian violence between Shia and Sunni and the wonderful death cult religion called Islam. What deen teaches strapping on a BOMB MENTIALLY DISTURBED FEMALES is ok. This is sick!

You rate lives of other people in the same manner in which dollar is counted in comparison of other currencies, like for Rupee its present value is about 40 to 1 dollar. More than for lakh dead in your occupied in comparison to your more than 4000, but still your thirst for blood.....er..er..errr...errr....errrr.... oil and other treasures not satisfied.

No we rate by what happened in 911. Yes it's a tragedy that we have had 4000 volunteer soldiers die in Iraq in the span of five years but the 3000 American whom died in 911 in a matter of three hours were not volunteers.

Submitting....
