Ahmed,

I don't know how you can swallow life in Dar al Harb, Ahmed, surrounded, as you claim, by several hundred million terrorists. I should think walking to class every day would be a very frightening experience.

I see you've learned a lot at that Catholic College. History major? Your ridiculous claims that 1. Thomas Jefferson drafted the US Constitution, and 2, used the Koran to do so, are typical of the fantastical, divorced-from-reality rewrites of history that spring from the Muslim mind and often land on this forum. Keep up the good work. You will believe whatever suits your purpose anyway, regardless of plain facts, and the rest of us will find your silliness entertaining. So, it works out OK for everybody.

Hey, dude, you mean the Nelson Mandela that received the Philadelphia Freedom Award, presented by a US president? The same Nelson Mandela that won the J. William Fulbright Award?

Somalia? You refer to Operation Provide Relief, in the early 1990's, when US troops distributed 48,000 tons of food and medical supplies to a starving Somali populace? And they dragged dead bodies of US servicemen through the street, cheering and dancing and singing silly songs along the way? Very classy wasn't it?. By the way, that battle against the gangster forces of a tribal Somali warlord included Pakistani and Malay troops, not just US. But they don't figure in your criticism, do they? Right Ahmed, reserve your vitriol only for Americans, like the ones you choose to live among. Everybody else gets a pass.

Yes, 20 years ago we had a president who was fed up after Qadhafi's agents blew up a night club in Berlin, Germany that was popular with Americans, and he went after Qadhafi

If you want to know why the USA removed the genocidal dictator Saddam Hussein, and stayed on to attempt to foster a constitutional democracy, you could just read the Senate war resolution. It lists 23 reasons. Unfortunately, not many U.S. senators were ace history majors like you, and so had no idea that Sunnis and Shia would start blowing up each others' mosques and murdering each other by the thousands, or that the small Iraqi Christian population would be all but eliminated. It's called "ethnic cleansing," Ahmed. It's considered a very bad thing when non-Muslims do it.

Look on the bright side, Ahmed. There are still plenty of murderous, unelected, Islamic style governments around. Syria. Iran. Libya. Saudi Arabia. All with excellent Islamic universities that are far superior to that infidel institution you say you attend. Dar al Islam is calling Ahmed. Just a plane ride away. Don't worry, Boeing engineers used the Koran to design the 747. You'll get there. You'll only have to do without shampoo for just a few hours.
