It is the biggest success of Muslims today that they have engaged this so called superpower into multiple fronts. In Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Pakistan etc. USA hasn't got enough power now to oust Rebels, Talibans etc.

Actually, we have more than enough power, Mansoor, we simply choose not to use it. We could, if we chose, fight like Muslims do and blow up crowds of innocent people, or throw Muslims off rooftops (that seemed to work well for Hamas in Gaza). We could hide behind women and children, while aiming rockets at women and children. But we don't do any of those things. We're the USA, not the army of Islam.

You are happily hearing the news of tumbling US economy and the giant leap of Euro. The emergence of Chinese supremacy and alternate forces like India and East Asian Block which are covering more ground is good news for Muslims. Especially Chinese challenge to USA will earn a great success to Islam

While millions of Muslims attend mosques week after week in the USA, undisturbed and in complete safety, China regularly trounces on its Muslim population with tools like bullets and prison. Are you sure the "Chinese challenge" is really such good news for Muslims?

That alternate force, India. We have welcomed thousands of Indian immigrants to the USA. Our two nations cooperate economically every day. We feel increasing friendship, not animosity, with the world's largest democracy. By the way, why are India's advances in income, infrastructure, research and manufacturing so much larger than Pakistan's?

Muslims should now exert more pressure; more intensity in their actions should be initiated. Engaging enemy into multiple fronts is the only way of regaining the lost power. Muslims are ready to die, they love their blood spilling on the sand and their necks are ready for cut throat, they enjoy being blown up into uncountable pieces and they still smile because their reward is with Lord.

So why don't you go to Iraq and blow yourself up in a market crowded with innocent Muslims, like the brave mujahadeen you love do every day? Actually, it doesn't have to be a market, I don't mean to limit you, your brothers and sisters routinely blow up mosques, girls' schools, weddings and children's playgrounds, (complete with children) too. I'm not sure why they impress you so much, but, why sit back in Pakistan with only your words? Why not do what you say?

I also heard that Muslims are now working on creating alternate technology to oust giants like Microsoft, Oracte etc. If is true then it will be a great success. There should be combined action on all fields and Muslims should once again try their best to beat everyone in every field to seal their supremacy

To seal your supremacy, wouldn't it have been easier just to have invented computers, operating systems and networking to begin with? Maybe invent and distribute vaccines while you're at it? Why did the superior Muslim cultures leave all that to the inferior West?
