Dear Francis,

when the bomb was dropped on Japan, the japs were already defeated, and we were hell bent on not accepting their surrender until a) we had a chance to test the bomb, b) we had scared the russians in doing so. It was not the last shot of WWII, but the first of of the Cold War.

As I have said before, you condem the very thought processes you use. It is foolish to condem Muslims as an homogenous mass, while you talk about the folly of (some) Muslims doing just that....

Many of your observations are accurate, it is the application that lacks sophistication.

You know what, if I go to Saudi, I get also get boppressed, so are you going to try using that against me? My mother in law a Hindu could not go to live there because they could not take their idols in with them when they were offered work there. So they turned it down. Yes, I believe her idols are false, but she has every right to bow down infront of them and pray to them. (she a hindu is more intolerant of Islam than most muslims i know of are bout Hinduism).

Saudi is widely disliked among large segments of the Muslim population. All muslims I know are outraged by the atrocity of beheading in the name of God as perpetrated by the terrorists in Iraq.

Also, Saddam was responsible for most of the deaths in that conflict, he is not a Muslim as far as I know. He was backed and armed by the yanks, just as Iran was too.....interesting fact. where are the arms coming from for all these conflicts involving muslims and their adversaries? guess who sells more weapons than most other contires combined... whose economy could colapse if it was not for the military element....guess.

Your last paragraph is just ridiculous hyperbole, try to argue in good faith please.
