harrak,

sorry to rain on your parade pal but just a couple observations on your post of february 13. first of all, brazil and argentina are in the process of becoming developed first world nations and their economies have been improving in recent years due to changes in us trade policies. and combined with the fact that democratic nations with good economies usually dont go to war unless attacked, you can write them off the list.

next, i dont see anyone running in fear from the unmerciful congonese army. you could try better there.

as for venezuela, it might be a good thing for you to keep up on current news. the jobs that were promised never materilized. there are already claims of corruption and nepatism coming out in the venezuelan press. venezuelas gdp has already started falling and there is unrest in some of the poorer areas of the country due to the imaginary jobs that semed to disapear after chavez got what he wanted. so much for your little tin horn dictator. he'll be lucky if he survives in his own country.

the sudan is the arm pit of the world. which part of the sudan policy did you like more, harboring terrorists or committing genocide? but i dont blame you for your example. only in a country with a psycopathic mindset like the sudan could your ideas flourish. kind of like iran.

as for the ussr. take a history class. the soviet republics didnt revolt. the revolts came in poland and hungary to start and spread to romania, bulgaria and chezckoslovakia, all independent eastern european nations whos rulers were puppets for moscow. the republics got their freedom because the soviets simply didnt have enough money to have their army keep all those people in one big gulag, not to speak of the internal pressure coming from the russian people themselves. but just to point out how rediculous your statement about the ussr was, the ussr was a communist, not a capitalist society that had a revolution so they could become a capitalist society. this is a direct contridiction to your assumptions.

in conclusion, only islam is attacking the west and people are starting to wake up. in the united states there have already been immigration policies put into place that will assure that islam will always be a minority in the usa. europe will soon follow and then china. the world will not succumb to islamic threats or terrorism. and the backlash has yet to begin.

thank you
