...To me this has nothing to do with religion....You can ...bow down... for all I care as long as it does not in any way shape or form threaten to destroy my way of life.

I have been a military man for over 20 years, and I have been all over the world and I must say that the cesspool that we call the middle east is the most god-forsaken place on earth. I make my radical comments because I have seen my buddies die trying to give your ungrateful people a chance at real freedom.

Yes I have had to spill blood in Iraq, and live with it every day, but the thought of one of those cowardly little bastards hurting my family makes it ok in my heart. You spoke in another posting about how muslim culture has thrived and prospered over the centuries when in fact 99.9% of all the people in the middle east are mere peasants with women and children being at the bottom of the list. I could care less if someone is Jewish, muslim, christian, or a devil worshipper as long as it is not forced upon me and my kind.

I agree that the way the Indians and Africans were treated by Europeans and colonists was wrong, but just as it was then, it is now that ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE! You spoke of not charging interest on debts, well this is Capitalism honey, so get used to it or go the heck home!!!
