in response to reader comment: What about the crusades??

Submitted by Straight_Talk_Luigi (United States), Apr 17, 2008 at 21:08

The Crusades were a defensive war long overdue. Even the Pope sunk so low as to pay tribute to the maudering barbarians of Asia minor who assailed our noble, peaceful lands.

The only mistake made was persecuting the Jews and other Christians along with the Muslims, in typical European arrogance.

And quite frankly, most of us CARE about what happens TODAY, and guess who's making all the fuss?

Ding! ding! ding!

We have a winner!
