Heh, you are ignorant. WW2 resulted in the Cold War which lasted for 40 years. Did you forget that little detail?

Isalms war on the planet is over 1500 years old, why should the war on terror be any shorter.

Hahaha. He has an amazing point.


The middle eastern people are no different than us. The Religion they follow however is. I think there in lies the problem. Someone should just kill god, then all his followers will have to unite and do something together for a change. haha.

They are very different; if you do not agree then I will be forced to question your values.

Values? I said there religion is what sets them apart. What comes from religion? Values! Without Islam and Christianity, they'd be just like us (or me, depending on if you believe in god or not). Make some sense man.

Make more sense? You said kill their god. WE SHARE THE SAME GOD. Muhammad (sp) is their version of Jesus; the end god is the same.

You suggest to kill their religion and tell me to make more sense? Get real.

if you want to play that `game` how about the war of christians vs everyone else? 2005 years so far and still running


there wasn`t an awlful lot of open fighting during the cold war was there - hence why my cvomment about WW2 stands.

WE? I do NOT share the same 'god', or any god for that matter. This isn't even the topic of the forum. But...if you take god OUT of the equation, what do you have? Normal human beings who don't kill each other for 2000 years because they think some crazy godhead figure is on there side. They do it for wealth and power instead.


That's all I was saying.

Anyways, back on topic. WW2 is essentially still going on. The enemies have just changed, and things have gotten a bit 'lax.

Your district need more funding for education, I do not even know where to start with that.

Since when do 'districts' teach religious history and wars?

Can a nation really 'surrender'? I mean, isn't that really saying..."ok, we'll take a break..."

Not really; it seems to be senseless pseudo-flaming with barely on topic jabs.

Dunno, drop two atomic bombs on your cities and get back to me.

Not only did it end, we dismantled their military. Are you that naive? Japan has no military; the U.S. protects them.

FFS.
