in response to reader comment: Sufi Muslim violence, and the Prince of Wales

Hmmm funny to think that sufis would not use violence when needed.

I thought them to be peaceful too. But think again: why should you be peaceful if a foreign army invades your country telling you that your dear "ol little queen is a dictator. Then start a war in your beloved Albion and a lot of civilians die...collateral damage they called it and case closed. Then this foreign army leaves your country and puts a corrupt government in command. Ah I forgot that suddenly a extremist radical militant group comes out of the mists and start killing anybody that doesn't think and act like them. Let's say YOU don't agree with them...would you wait until you are forced on your knees and get a headshot, but before they afcourse rape and kill your familiy...NO...you would pick up your gun and fight...even if it is a certain death...but then again all death is certain, right?

And for the attack on the foreign army invading your country (read USA and coalition)..If ou see that thousands of civilians die since this army got in your country, wouldn't you pick up your gun too? or would you wait until a "smartbomb" launched by a drone wipes away your family?

Let's be clear about this: Our governemnts should not have stuck there nose in someone else's business..we should not have been in Iraq or Afghanistan. Big oilcompanies afcourse would claim otherwise and politicians too because they are in line with eachother. And we, dan sheeps get to believe that our soldiers were sent there to give this people democracy...isn't democracy the dictatorship of the majority???

Ah and Prince Harry shooting a .50 cal. shooting a .50 cal from a nice distance and well out of range, protected probably by a bunch of well trained men, etc is not that brave and dramatic...why not send him to the REAL frontline, where a bullet can punch a hole in your head as big as a golfball..but that is just something normal civilians are supposed to do FOR the Prince and his family and their interests

I am sorry for every soldier who died out there and every soldier that brought back home the war in the them and who still suffer physically or mentally. But our government is to blame for the big shit that the middle east has turn into. So don't blame people in those countries to form groups to defend themselves againts for example ISIS.....or any other foreign invaders.

Submitting....
