Classic Western supremacist ideology. "It is we who will save these poor people and give them freedom", only we don't give a..... about real human suffering.

Should it come to a fight with Iran, it probably won't be a campaign to free the whole country.

Why don't we intervene in Africa? Liberia, Kenya, why it took thousands of Muslim Bosnians to die at the hands of Christian Serbs before the world helped? Why, because we only care about the suffering in regions that we have an interest in.

So does everyone other state and so do you, apparently. You convienently left out Latin America, but since Islam isn't the dominant religion there, who cares, right?

Why is all the focus on the suffering in Iraq and Iran when these countries are more developed than many countries in the region and Africa?

Probably because Iraq invaded all its neighbors, had WMDs and now Iran wants WMDs. Can't say any African nation is pursuing those.

I should say "were" for Iraq. The people of Afghanistan that this country freed over seven years ago are still impoverished.

And Osama's sitting in his cave with untold billions in foreign banks. And the international community that promised aid isn't arriving on time.

Go figure.

The people of Iraq barely have clean drinking water, let alone that hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians have been killed.

This is really getting old hearing this from Muslims and liberals: Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis HAVE not died! They are without facilities thanks to orthodox ISLAM and terrorism! If al quedia had left the USA soliders ALONE, Iraqis would have these and American soldiers would be gone!

If you REALLY want to help, join a Christian missionary group and go over there!

So we will free the Iranians by bombing them?

If we bomb them, the target will be nuke facilities.

By dumping nuclear material that will poison them and their generations for decades to come? Iranian women won't have to worry about covering their hair because they won't have any after all the radiation has been dumped there.

That's the game you play when you try and get nuclear weapons. Iran is willing to risk it, I guess. Maybe you should go and talk to them about it. Everything the rest of the world is doing so far is reactionary.

ARE YOU SERIOUS? It is really frightening that people think like this.

Only when a Muslim nation is threatened, right?


That's a good question for Muslim mujaheedin
