Lack of responsibility

Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Submitted by John Drake (United States), Mar 25, 2003 at 19:21

In the past two decades, Americans have more often lost their lives fighting for Muslims than other other people on the planet. Kosovo, Somalia, Kuwait, Afghanistan, and now, unfortunately, Iraq. The problem with the Arab world is not America but the lack of responsibility and the inability to face their own reckless ways. Palestine is an "occupied" territory because Arabs sought to eradicate Jews in a massive genocide, failed, and lost land which never in the history of mankind belonged to an Arab nation called Palestine. Israel is not the Arab world's problem. Their problem is the willingness to live in a death-cult where children are taught to die like cowards in suicide missions instead of bravely rising up against their clerical oppressors. Freedom fighters fight against occupying armies. Cowards, the true word for terrorists, kill innocent women and children. This war in Iraq is wrong because Americans should not be sacrificing their lives for the freedom of a people that will only turn and kill them in the name of their "god".
