Inability of Islam to Stop

Reader comment on item: Give War a Chance
in response to reader comment: Mohammad's treaties were to buy time and, then, launch even more brutal attacks

What is still transpiring in the middle of the Asian continent is a new contest that, though inspired by Islamic frames of empire (Caliphates, Sultanates, Emirates) and their previous collapses from the ancient times to the calamities we are seeing today, what is the real tale of tragedy when considering that Islam may be the standard by which we see the ambitions of so many attempting to rally to a new empire of ambition, but no one is looking at the back door implications of why Afghanistan is the scene of the moment, but not the main event about to fall upon the region. There are no treaties being made today that honors the Islamic Prophet: none.
Ask not what your religion can do for you; ask what you are willing to give up for your religion. The Taliban are a distraction; Afghanistan a stepping stone. The stakes of conquest just gained an immeasurable amount of investment; but who can afford it? Certainly not the Iranian Islamic Regime-they do not represent Islam; but who else? Anyone? Anyone?
