I've been out of town for a few days so just got to this. You don't wish to discuss the Afghan issue anymore, but do wish to get in the last word on it. Ok, if you don't want to discuss it then drop it.

As it is you "commented", so I'm going to briefly do so. The Afghans threw out the Russian troops only because the U.S. supplied them with the arms to do so. We now are trying to get some regime in there that has some semblence of sanity, which is hard to find in that region of the world where there are so many cultures trying to whack each other off. The Taliban doesn't only hate anyone that is non-Muslim, they hate everyone that doesn't belong to their local tribe. they wish to slaughter everything in sight. Now it appears Pakistan is confused over who to support. The so-called peaceful Muslims haven't the will to fight off any of the radicals, but they do represent the majority. Another prime example of Islam's impotence when it comes to trying to establish majority leadership - again, the so-called peace loving ones. It is mostly about local culture, which Christainity isn't. The latter started in the Middle East, was cultivated by the west after Islam destroyed its presence in the Middle East, and then desseminated throughout the world in a message of peace. It's never done perfectly but at least its main tenet isn't a hatred for everyone in whatever locale it goes to. We don't start terrorist groups as is being done in the Phillipines, Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Sudan, Ehtiopia, Somalia, Banaladesh, etc. all over the world.

You are in India and a Muslim. Hatred defines Islam in that whole region. You won't find Christian factions massacaring each other. But then they don't have to. The Muslims and Hindus seem to be interested in doing nothing but murder and mayhem. The Hindus, much less so, but they are trying hard to catch up.

The word of Jesus Christ taught Christians to love their enemy & try to help them see reality. God's love is paramount & so is his forgiveness to every man (through the Christ). We all sin & are none worthy of eternity in paradise with a perfect God. Why would anyone worship & believe in any God that wasn't perfect? He isn't the God of any culture, race, or nation but of mankind alone - which he created. He promotes truth, love, and peace. Islam distorted the truth so as to disguise it and push a different agenda.

You seem to have conveniently forgotten the "issues". If you can't keep track of even your own id, I won't bother you anymore.

I can assume you are "javed" - ???
