Dear Truth-Teller,
What is your real intention when you provide the number of killed people? You want to indicate that American are more cruel than Islams?

True that US killed a large number of people but that was in the age of chaos, the era when many countries were still in slave state. Specifically , the ones who started the chaos included Hitler who happened to have the same belief as most muslims : detesting Jews. Even in that era of chaos, many American people still kept their opinions against war in Vietnam. But what about islam today, which is better age? Many of them support arrogant doctrines and wars. If there are muslims who do not support those things, they simply do not demonstrate their opposite opnions. Nor at least do they show some signs of opposition!

the US,of course, was really bad to use war ro intervene in businesses of many countries.Yet, why do muslims make the same mistake when it comes to religion? Muslims definitely are not the center of the world to do that , the US may be so considered. as u can see, every time there is a US presidential election, the whole world cares although nobody forces them to! I definitely do not worship the US but I do think that today, they liberate people in a lot of things, for example : education, religions.

About the "mud huts" thing, they also have a reason to mention that. According to archaeology, Islamism partly stemmed in Assyria, but Assyrian palaces were mostly built od straw-mud brick, weren't they?
And if you say Indonesia are rich, I could tell it's simply an excuse.'coz the economy of that country has nothin' to pay particular attention to! And clearly, the major part of Singapore population aren't muslims.

Honestly, i am not Vietnamese as you may see on the website(but I have the right to hide my current nationality). My viewpoint was neutral at first . Yet, after I knew of koran and every thing about muslim, including architecture, I dont even find islamic culture a little bit worth paying attention to!
