WELL, let me ask you guys a question .WHERE WAS TERRORISM BEFORE 9/11
Hmm, let's see. Northern Ireland, south and Central America, Waco, Texas (kinda) Oklahoma. Ooh, that's right, who attacked the WTC the first time
around? Bombings in Pakistan, India (not to mention Kashmir), Beirut hostages, The Red Army Faction (you have heard of Baader-Meinhof, right?), Aum
Shinriko, mainland UK, Cyprus in the 50s (EOKA), Malaya at the same time...
WHERE WAS ALQAEDA, TALIBAN AND SO CALLED ISLAMISTS BEFORE THE CIA OPPERATION AND THE SOVIENT INVASION OF AFGHANISTAN.
"Ilamism" has been steadily growing in places like Pakistan and Iran for decades. Remember, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan matches closely with
the Iranian Islamic revolution, which brought in a hard-line Islamic theocracy.
The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan was merely the end-game in a political process the USSR had been undertaking in Afghanistan for years. The
late-20th century replay of something that began with Czar Aleksander. Pick up a copy of "The Great Game".
Admittedly, Al Qaeda wouldn't exist without the Soviet invasion, but "radical Islamism" certainly would.
EVERY CHIRSTIAN WILL BE A MUSLIM LOL.
I know I can be a pedantic pain in the arse, but would people please stop ending every statement they make with lol or LOL. It doesn't add anything
to your argument, but it certainly detracts from it.
What is a Muslim Lol? Are they a sect like the Sunnis and Shia's or a breakaway like the Ba'hai and Druze?
Given the virulent strains of protestantism to be found in the US and the strength of Roman Catholicism to be found in places like the Philippines and
Central and South America, your statement is patently false (which I'm sure you realise) and without the benefit of your nuanced pronunciation I
can't find the humour in it worthy of laughing out loud.
