Snudger, please try and stay more on topic.

You seem like the extremist, by the way, taking just as extreme a view towards muslims as you say they have about the western world.

Anyway, this topic took off quite a bit!


I apologise if you think i have gone off topic, but i feel it's relevant. There are casualties of war.

The ME has brought this upon themselves.

Perhaps it is relevant. I wouldn't mind so much if it didnt seem more like this was turning into a 'flame for the political views' kind of thread, because that doesnt actually communicate or solve anything important.

Also, there have been casualties at war.

Your opinion- Were the U.S. to ACTUALLY leave this region to govern itself without intervention or intimidation, do you think that the problems would be quelled?

If so, tell me why. If not, tell me why. Don't just speak back to me what the media thinks about it, think it out and really explain to me why you think so or not so, and the logic behind it. Also don't just assume that they are animalistic robots that need to destroy all which is not them.

It might help if i try and expalin a little. I lost a family member In the London Bombings. It took quite a bit out of me.

I have since encountered radical Muslims in the UK, and other Muslims who show no remorse for these actions and actually look upon it as something of an achievement.

For these reasons i may come across too strongly sometimes.

But i make no apologies for my views,

Maybe Pakistan should actually POLICE THE #ING BORDER THAT THEY WERE PAID AN EXHORBITANT AMOUNT OF MONEY BY THE US TO DO. I'm sure the people on the ground there didn't know it was a school, because they don't have strip maps of Pakistan down to the last building and don't have analysts poring over those images to find out what's what.

Why? Because Pakistan itself is supposed to take care of it but doesn't. I could understand if Pakistan was like "No, we're not going to help you, America, and even if you give us this 10 million dollars we won't use it to shore up our border with Afghanistan". Then there would be some type of conversation to be had. But when they "Yes, we will help you and thank you for this obscene amount of money it's what we need and the border will be secure" and then DON'T secure it...that's a problem.

I'm a Muslim, and I do not support those radical actions. You may not have been looking in the right place, or the media has chose not to air the gatherings against it, but after the attacks, huge numbers of Muslims were condemning the attacks.

What those attackers did is not allowed in Islam.

I think the OP was about a School getting bombed and for what ever reson it happend , its wrong.
You say you live in Scotland and your are an english man, So you have must have had some hate thrown at you, the same way you are thrown it at Muslims now.

The Muslim council of Great Britain condemned the attacks at the time. Some months later however, the leader of the MCGB was recorded on tape praising the 'heroes' of that day - as he described it.

Islam is a poison. The followers of Islam are poison. I have experienced first hand the racism of Muslim's in the UK and Pakistan, i have no sympathy for them, they follow a backward evil religion.


No.
Islamic fundamentalism is a poison,just as Christian fundamentalism is a poison.Don't tar billions of Muslims with the same brush.

I live in England.I have all my life.
Britain and Northern Ireland suffered over 30yrs of IRA terrorism,but the N.Irish as a whole were not described as a poison,as being evil or as being a threat to our way of life etc.




Christians, Hindus and the others you mention spend the majority of their time hiding and in fear!


I didn't say they lived without fear.You said Pakistan was full of Muslims,i've pointed out that it isn't...and you have just agreed.




If no-one stands up to terrorism it will take over, I like the USA, i like American society and i salute their brave soldiers.


Did the IRA take over Britain?
And how about saluting all the brave soldiers that are fighting,not just the Americans.





Is this the same 'weak' middle eastern country with nuclear weapons?


The UK & the US have nuclear weapons.US is the only country to have ever used them in anger.



Is this the same 'weak' middle eastern country rife with corruption?


Name one country in the world that isn't.



Is this the same 'weak' middle eastern country rife with extremists?


The US & the UK have them too.



Is this the same 'weak' middle eastern country where corruption is common practice amongst government and law enforcement officials?


The UK & the US is just the same.



Is this the same 'weak' middle eastern country that could be taken over by extremists who would then have access to nuclear weapons?


This has already happened in the US.





I live in Glasgow. Glasgow airport terrorists = Muslim.


I live in Manchester.Biggest terrorist bomb ever exploded here=Irish.



I travel to london. London tube terrorists = Muslim.


I travel to London.Harrods bombing=Irish.



I have been to Pakistan. Extremist = terrorist = Muslim.


I have been to Northern Ireland.IRA=terrorist=Irish.



Yes, i bought the threat 'hook line and sinker' because i witnessed it first hand.


I witnessed bombings and violence by the IRA first hand,but i knew they were never a representative for the whole country.I did not and do not damn all the people of Northern Ireland.

The same goes for Islam.I do not mix Muslims up with extremist Muslims.
I do not blame the many for the actions of a few.





Life is cheap in Pakistan.


Life is cheap everywhere.
Witness governments of the west sending soldiers to die in 2 illegal wars.



It's because of people like you that Hitler managed to grasp power in Germany. I am ashamed to call you my countryman.


Actually its because of people like you that tyrants get in power.You believe all that you are told,you are a mindless drone.

i do not feel that you are being truthful about your loss, if am am wrong then i hold my head in shame, as i to have lost my father (heart attack) and my sister who was aged 39 to breast cancer, i held her and my fathers hands as they died, i understand the pain of losing people i love, if it is true that you lost a family member in the bombings i suggest you research who was to blame, and yes call it conspiracy, look toward mi5, dont be blinded by your hate, all this however does not justify america dropping bombs on pakistan , it is almost an act of war against a nuclear power, where will it lead?

I don't think anyone is arguing there isn't Muslim extremists. There are. There are also Christian extremists.

Most Christians are not, same is said for Muslims. The reason they are called extremists to begin with is that their views are more extreme then others of that faith.

I am very sorry to hear about that, and I give my condolences. It must be very hard to get past that hate.

However-

I must tell you that if you don't, you are only going to spread the kind of hate that has brought the death of a family member to you. Instead of trying to destroy all which does not wholly agree with us, we should try and quell everything.

The real problem here is that our government is doing a lot of things that they don't tell us that is getting the middle east region angry at us. When people can't sleep at night without worrying about bombs hitting their homes, we really should realize that more acts of war are going to happen in retaliation.

The IRA were fighting for unification of their country not about religion. I should point out that terror is terror and do not condone previous IRA attacks.

I can't be bothered replying to the rest of your post - so if it makes you feel better just consider that your right about everything and go ahead and keep insulting me if it makes you feel good . Ok?

These people use religion as a weapon,but the spread of extremist Islam is not their only reasons.Getting democracies to withdraw military forces from the territory that the terrorists view as their homeland is also a major factor.

And the country was unified,what the IRA were fighting for,originally,was Home Rule.The partition of Ireland came after their War of Independence and a civil war.




I can't be bothered replying to the rest of your post


Well we all can't have good manners now can we.



so if it makes you feel better just consider that your right about everything and go ahead and keep insulting me if it makes you feel good . Ok?


Insult? Really?
You said,yourself,you've swallowed the threat hook,line and sinker.That makes you a mindless drone.
You cannot tell the difference between the average Muslim and an extremist Muslim,that makes you a mindless drone.

If that hurts your feelings just think of all those Muslims and Pakistanis you have tarred with the terrorist brush.
