Slayhy, you are like a dog with a bone, you will not let go of blaming the US and the Jews for the woes of the Muslim world. Now firstly, Iraq and Iran war had little to do with the US or Israel, but more to do with Arabic tradition of appointed the craziest dictator. If the US armed and supported Iraq, why was 99% of Iraqi equipment of Russian origin? If you had even half a clue you would of realized that the majority of US origin equipment was used by the Iranians, they were leftovers from the days of the Shah. The US did sell some equipment to the Iraqis this was more of my enemies enemy is my friend. However, Saddam derived the vast bulk of his supplies from the USSR. Why do you think it was T55 and T72 tanks in Saddams parades than Abrams tanks? Your saying that The US encouraged Saddam to invade Kuwait does not rate a response.

Did it ever enter into your ... brain that if the US really supported Saddam, then why did he not have majority US equipment? Also, again, if the Dictators that Muslims seem to love having rule them actually wisely spent every cent raised through oil sales, it is still insufficient to make up for the total lack of other resources and the lack of education of the average Muslim. An uneducated workforce is and unproductive workforce.

Until Muslims value education, start acting in a realistic manner, control thebirth rate, and adopt modern social standards; the vast bulk of Muslims will continue to swell and live in Islamic resultant misery. Blame the US and the Jews? You are like a dog barking at the moon, I just cannot see the point.
