yes, they work if the world 'allows' them to. 'Allows' in this case means that the 12-15% of ther world's population [that wishes to follow this putrid belief system] doesn't command anything.

If you removed the 'oil' from the future energy equation their entire existence [Indonesia, India, Bangladesh & the Pakistanis > which total well over half of the total muslim world] would be reduced to a permanent 3rd world beggar status in the most considerate situation.

It's no wonder the belief system is successful in Africa and the other 3rd world locations I mentioned. The belief system has been allowed to exist as an act of benevolence from the colonial powers.

They [the muslims] have been led to belive they can break the leash they are on. They can't.

Don't get me wrong - it would take a world wide effort that would mean a considerable detour to what we are used to [being nice] but it could be done.

the point is being driven home by Daniel and others [on this blog as well] that we shouldn't get so used to the comfy chair because the 'cold war' won't last forever.
