Reader comment on item: Uncovering Early Islam
in response to reader comment: Stalin was bad even doing good things while the West is good even doing bad things.

Ianus: "...Hitler's policy was absolutely pro-Islamic. "

He admired muslim ruthlessness and would use them as a means to his ends - but if you think he thought that arabs were more than Untermenschen then that is a mistake.

"His actions on the Balkans have been faithfully imitated by your president Bill Clinton and all presidents after him (which means the criminal war against Serbia and her partition were not one corrupt man's fantasy) - destroying Christian Serbia, strengthening Islam to terrorize and dominate Christians, making Kosovo a protectorate from which to control the Balkans. "

I am with you on this one. The unveiling of a statue of Clinton by Clinton in the newly occupied muslim country was sickening. Maybe there's a Serbian artist somewhere with a sense of humour who can make another one - but with Clinton and his friend (with benefits) with her Polish antecedents - Monica Lewinski.

"...You will tell us that Stalin was bad even when doing good things while the US/the West is good even doing bad things."

Just out of interest, have you ever met any of the descendants of the 20,000 victims found at Katyn?

"China -the main rival to economic and political hegemony will be paralyzed and ruined "

US with all its bad points - which realists must accept do and will continue to exist to some extent - also does a power of good in the world.

So rather than an endless tit for tat exchange about so many points and griping about history which cannot be changed - what are you suggesting as a workable alternative? If you took the US completely out of the equation - pretended that there was no country like the US - what do you expect would happen?

And what would you like to happen?

Ok, so no US backing Nato, no United Nations - because the US pays for them (OK, I know it's a waste of money in most respects), no satnav sattelites or any of its technology or any of its influences in any fields. It has just vanished.

Russia and China are free to develop militarily and in all other ways - and vie for economic and political hegemony. Do you seriously think they'd be in bed together after any length of time and not at each other's throats? And that the Chinese - massively overpopulated and with their overly developed sense of self interest would not be plundering the rest of Asia ,and Africa to a greater degree than they are doing so now? You can even see the signs currently in Russian Far' East territories where they've managed to infiltrate. It's interesting to consider the possibilities of a world where there was no counterbalancing force to these 2 large countries - both of which have had and still have large numbers of people used to being told what to do for the good of the party.

"and Russia will be brought to her knees with her vast territory at last emptied of their "useless" Slavic inhabitants which will be colonized by more servile populations."

I should have read ahead - exactly the word I was looking for in that last paragraph - servile. Millions of submissive, fawning underlings , unwittingly perpetuating their unrecognised servitude by being too gutless to stand up to the overinflated egos of overpaid corrupt state minions .

I agree with you on that point but I don't think Russia would let that happen. I would hope there would be too much political pressure by Russians to do something about the problem.

Is the population of all the Stans increasing these' days to any great degree ? There are no overly generous social security programs there - so is the muslim population increasing at the same rate as it does in the West? Would those populations also have their eyes on Russia's vast territories?
