Oh, yes, that Zionist media. I keep hearing about that from Muslims and Nazis, but I still don't every see any evidence of it myself.

Meanwhile, Muslims in Nigeria had a pleasant weekend:

Lagos, Nigeria (CNN) -- The death toll from weekend violence in central Nigeria climbed to more than 200 Monday after members of a machete-wielding Muslim group attacked mostly Christian villages, officials said. More than 200 were dead and 32 injured, according to Choji Gyang, a religious affairs adviser to the head of Plateau state, who said bodies were still being recovered. Sani Shehu, president of the non-governmental agency Civil Rights Congress, put the number of dead at about 485 people. The bodies of children tangled with each other in a local morgue, including a diaper-clad toddler. Another young victim appeared to have been scalped, while others had severed hands and feet. One woman victim in the morgue appeared to have been stripped below the waist, but later covered by a strip of black cloth.

So, will Muslim leaders now demand an investigation? Let me know the results of the Muslim investigation, OK?

I notice you did not really answer a single one of my simple questions, Mr. Banerjee. Also, you seem reluctant to talk about your prophet's predilection to torture people who knew something he'd like to know. He, being the perfect human being, and his life being the perfect example for us to copy, I would think his actions would be a pleasure for you to talk about. Just my curiosity, how many people did the Buddha have tortured?

Oh, and yes, those plentiful and marvelous natural resources of Afghanistan. We're going after them, yessiree. Actually, we have plenty of rocks and sand here in the USA, so the Afghans can keep theirs.

In Iraq, American troops are withdrawing on schedule, and not a single American company is involved in Iraqi oil. In Afghanistan, yes, Mr. Karzai is far from perfect, but, after hundreds of years of corrupt Islamic rule, where bribery is a way of life, we should not expect things to be perfect in a few years, especially when Muslims blow up every school we build. Many Americans believe we should not spend American lives to bring democracy to Muslims who seem to prefer living in the 7th century; I see you agree. However, the Iraqi elections look very hopeful for those who argue that bringing democracy to the middle east (and replacing a mass murderer of Muslims) will bring positive change; millions of Iraqis voted yesterday despite Muslims blowing them up in numerous places. Looks like the majority might actually prefer votes to bombs for political expression.

Where do I get my numbers? Those zeros? Well, "Ohh come on man." Please feel free to prove me wrong. For starters, tell me the names of the Iranian prison interrogators (oops, I mean scapegoats) who were arrested, tried and punished for the murder of the Canadian, Zahra Kazemi. Also in Iran, who was arrested, tried and punished for the murder of Dariush and Parvaneh Forouhar? The government sent goons to murder them both in their home and leave a bloody surprise for when the kids came home. Let's see if we can move off that number zero, Mr. Banerjee. I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Yes, I remember Haditha. At least, I remember the way the NY Times described it (that Zionist press again). But maybe their Al Qaeda sources got it wrong, because the prosecution hasn't got very far, even with the NY Times screaming about the marines' guilt (oh, those Zionists). But, when the army of Islam arrives, there's a real Haditha every minute.

General McChrystal is concerned with civilian casualties because he is a good person, an American, and an honorable military man. To him, civilian casualties are a tragedy. Unlike his Muslim enemies who always go after civilian targets and run away when the US Army shows up. Muslims celebrate and proudly announce responsibility for blowing up marketplaces filled with women and children, and the rest of the ummah stays silent, but when the US Army accidentally injures one of the Muslims' human shields, you go berserk and look for the nearest riot to join in.
