To Noah (and Syed Mohammed Ali): Muslim is as Muslim does and the oily road to Paradise.
Submitted by Plato (India), Feb 10, 2007 at 07:45
I have been reading Syed's posts and your and Susan's reply to them. I did not butt in seeing the two of you having a good time trashing Syed's posts. But two bits caught my eye which I thought should not go unanswered. Here they are: Bold in inverts is yours, bold without inverts mine.
"we have du6% of oil reserves and we must sell all oil in different currencies but not in $ and the supremacy of $ will be ended itself.
"You can't eat the oil. America is the #1 consumer of oil. You'd go broke if you stopped selling it to us, and if you tried that we'd simply kill you and take the oil which we gave you the money and technology to extract in the first place. Muslims should be careful when thinking of using oil as a weapon. It's a sure way to sign your own death warrant. Ask Saddam."
Noah why don't you let them go broke rather than put down your boots where they are not wanted and your children coming back boots first. Well well Noah studying Muslims has resulted in their mindset rubbing off on you. Booty is legal in Islam you know. Muslims simply killed for booty, since the Koran made it legal. You have just made it legal for yourself as Allah's apostle did for himself. So what reason do you have for condemning Islamic booty taking after what you just said.
They can't eat the oil, but they can use it to power their power stations, their vehicles into the indefinite future. You need energy, you go get it, you have the nukes. To hell with free trade. Hitler needed living space he went and got it. Lebensraum. The Europeans needed living space they went and grabbed it from the native Americans, aborigines, Maoris. Now you need energy, you go get it. Lebensraum spelt differently. You have nukes enough to wipe out mankind, I read somwhere equivalent to several hundred kilos for every human alive.
Now we know why you won't let the ME countries have it. America is #1 consumer of oil. You need more and more to feed your SUVs and MUVs. The ME is floating on oil.You have clean killing MOABs, neutron bombs, and also dirty nuclear, chemical and biological stuff. So hand me your oil or you are history. To parapphrase Shakespeare, barabarism by any other name will still smell as bad. Did I hear anyone here say it is not about oil but about saving civilisation.
"just we shouldnt let americans control our oil and we will sell our own ...in the currency which we want to...we are exploited people by the western imperialists."
"Get ready. It's going to get much worse for you in the coming years. Soon there will be an American flag flying over all the oil fields. "
Is your message specific to the ME. What if Russia stops exporting oil. Does Iran have the right to conserve oil for future use or do they have to pump it out so that you can cruise in our Humvees on your beautiful highways without a care about the gallons it is guzzling. Person for person how many gallons does the average Iranian use against what you use. They can't use as much as you now. But they have a tomorrow when they probably can unless you deprive them of that tomorrow by hoisting your star spangled banner over Teheran. Oil rights belong to the 'free world' a la all rights belong to Allah and his Apostle. Noah, Muslim is as Muslim does.
Ah Noah, your free world edifice seems to be built on a foundation of slippery oil. Somebody turns off the tap and you start sliding down the oily slope to anarchy. We saw that in a different context on a small scale after Katrina.
Hey Syed Mohammed Ali, Noah here has a bargain you just cannot refuse. You know like Allah has made a binding contract with you Muslims to give you paradise for killing or getting killed in his cause, here Noah is offering you a binding promise to vaporise you if you don't part with what is yours. You martyr's who die in Allah's cause go directly to heaven. Here is Noah telling you in plain language that if your hand even hovers over YOUR oil tap, piff, you will open your eyes in paradise. He has a right to that oil since he gave you the money and the technology to dig out from your property. Why do you have to go through those five times a day genuflecting murmuring in an alien language, long hours of fasting, and slaughtering of animals to please Allah to gain paradise.
Noah is not interested in any of your imaginary paradise. He wants his Humvee which has enough horses to pull a train humming nicely in his three-car garage and never mind if the temperature of the planet reaches hellish proportions. All you have to do is deny him oil and he will gladly dispatch you to the paradise you so desire. And what a bargain as Allah says:u. 047.036 The life of this world is but play and amusement: and if ye believe and guard against Evil, He will grant you your recompense, and will not ask you (to give up) your possessions. (You may have to give up your oil, but Noah's offer of paradise is an irresistible)
The worst case scenario will see only 20,000 Muslims in heaven and in the best case 500 million of you will suddenly land up on Allah's doorstep according Noah's calculation. All explained in detail in his secret master plan. I think Noah's original plan was for Muslim intransigence when they started shipping Muslims en mass to Arabia but the Great Oil Grab scenario can be accommodated within this plan as a sub-plan.
The Iraq oil adventure (oops, Operation Saddam On a Rope) has already sent a few hundred thousands to paradise. So what are you waiting for Syed Mohammed Ali, paradise is waiting.
