I still don't understand what you are saying. Are you saying you actually *spoke* to people from Yemen, Lebanon, Kuwait, Jordan, Egypt and Bahrain and they *told* you they were there "fighting terrorist"? LOL! Yeah, they are fighting terrorists all right--the terrorists from the coalition and the Iraqi government forces!! Oh, give me a break! Yes, you've *seen* people from those countries, but they are not there to support the U.S.and new Iraqi government, they are there fighting AGAINST the new democratic Iraq. We are rounding them up in droves, especially in this latest military operation that was recently completed.

I mean this is so preposterous that I don't even know where to begin! Why would someone travel from Yemen, home of Osama bin Laden, to Iraq to help the "infidels" who have invaded a Muslim country and fight on the side of the infidel??!! Jordanians are extremely hostile to America because of our support for Israel in the Arab/Israeli conflict--THEY HATE US!! Are you familiar with Abu Mussab Zarqawi? He is a Jordanian and the leader of al qaeda in Iraq.

Or maybe I am completely misunderstanding your comments. If so, please enlighten me. I am also familiar with Iraq as a close relative was killed there back in May 2005. He was special operations with the Air Force and was responsible for capturing scores of terrorists/insurgents. So, I've got some pretty reliable sources too.

BTW, go onto ummah.com and ask them how they feel about a Muslim serving in the American military and taking part in a military operation in a Muslim country. Don't ask your imam; asking an imam about Islam is like asking the KGB about Communism. Go onto Islamic websites and ask the folks there and see what the general consensus is, just out of curiosity.
