Harrak, here's a simple reality check for you.

First, If the West cuts off the sale of food to the Muslim world, as well as the vast food aid programs that are run by the UN and the World's many charities, you all starve. It's that simple. Worse yet is that you'll rip each other to shreds for the few scraps of food that are available. If you think you have the power to actually take food from the EU and the U.S., then you truely are delusional.

As for all of the oil and mineral wealth controlled by the Muslim world, I say EAT YOUR OIL. Oil has ZERO VALUE if the world refuses to buy it from you. Again, why do you think G.W. Bush is sudenly an alternative energy disciple? He is already setting the stage for the devaluation of the international oil market. And guess what, countries like India and China won't be willing to pay the price we do. Again, your oil has no inherent value, just that which people will pay.

And do you really think there is any nation, or group of nations, in the Muslim world that has a rat's-butt chance of taking on the U.S., the EU, Russia, and China? We are all getting pretty fed up with the childish antics of your peoples and your leaders. Just six stategically place nukes (about 0.05% of the world's known warheads) and not only is the facility at Natanz gone, but so is 60% of the Iranian population. The remainder will be left burned, blind, and dying. Iran's oil wealth will be split up among the U.S., the EU, Russia, and China, and the Irainian people will be starved into extinction.

On a final note: Collectively, the Muslim world is a disgrace to the Prophet. Muhammed tried to give you people something to make your passage through the world better. I, as a Christian, do not see Muhammed as evil, just misguided. Islam and the Koran are some damn ingenious work, and a reasonably good philosophy to live by, if people really read the Koran and lived by the best parts of it.

However, YOU HAVE ALL WASTED MUHAMMED'S GIFT. You have turned it into a philosophy of hatred and death. That is not what Muhammed intended. Those who follow this death-cult mentality that has taken over Islam are the worst kind of heretics, because you are going to bring the wrath of the rest of the world down on the heads of a lot of innocent people who are trying to peacefully follow Muhammed's teaching. I hope people like you are proud of the hell-on-earth you are creating for the true Muslims of the world.
