I'd say the quest for money and power have killed far more than religion but there is one that is trying to change that,.
Who would that be??

OP, I appreciate your thread. I've been wondering since I learned about it why in the hell the US should support Israel.....because it's tradition?
Because the British were the source of our forefathers and the British "freed" Israel after WW2?
I'm no expert on middle-eastern history, or even on the ramifications of WWs 1 and 2, but I don't see one reason on God's green Earth for us to be
involved in the middle east at all
My preference would be to dismantle EVERY MILITARY BASE and send home EVERY SINGLE American troop who is stationed abroad, make do with the resources
and knowledge that we have here in one of the largest continents on the planet, and leave everyone else to their own devices.
If our own country ("house") is not in order (which it is decidedly NOT!!!) what business has the US Govt (as the "parental political force" making
decisions for "we the offspring in our vast and piteous oblivion") meddling in ANY OTHER COUNTRY?
And the US gets affronted when another country presumes to say "we think that you
smell like ointment and pee!"...
sorry, it popped in my head while I was typing and I couldn't resist)...*ahem*
...when another smaller, less affluent country (or equally affluent for that matter!) presumes to say, "We think that your
policies are bad and
dangerous, and that your
country is in a shambles and needs intervention!"(...which it is, but we lowly peasants who see it are not allowed to
have any sway, ya know......)
Yet, none of those other countries have dared to attack big, bad America since WW2..
(Well, there was that once, but what a can of worms that
while big bad America's "leaders" are dispatching our most healthy and robust youth ---- filling their brains with violence, vengeance, and blind
robotic shooting, until they bring them home as cripples (in every sense) at best, and in a bag of small bones with a dogtag, at worst
---- out to
"monitor the freaking WORLD with military bases in oh-so-strategic-points......."
It makes my soul sick. My heart, too. I think it is making much of humanity physically ill for that matter. What the hell does it take for people
to wake up to what's going on and say....."ENOUGH!!!! THIS IS HURTING ME AND MAKING ME SICK!!"
*wishing there was a "grief" smiley*
