The real problem here David isn't that we disagree on what to do politically,
but that you won't face reality.
You want to blame all Moslems for 9/11, which is absolutely ridiculous.
Well, the attacks of 9/11/1 were done in their name.
We saw them on TV dancing in the streets
while yet the World Trade Center burned
, exuberantly celebrating
the doom of the WTC and of its inhabitants, as thay were leaping out
of its windows onto the Plaza below, with the fire
at their asses;
this jovial merrymaking included Moslems that we had helped
e.g. those of Kuwait, who we avenged
. It shows who bears us ill will.
(That teaches us something about gratitude
and human nature.)
It behooves us to accurately identify who is our friend
and who is our foe. Do u agree with that ??
At the same time you believe this nonsense about 9/11
being because Moslems hate America's freedoms,
I do. Theocratic totalitarianism is inconsistent with the Supremacy of Individual Liberty.
We r supposed to live in "the Land of the Free". I like it that way.
I am at a loss to understand Y u choose to characterize it
as being: "nonsense"
and has absolutely nothing to do with America's actions in the Arab world.
That is simply not true.
That is not my position; I did not say that.
U r distorting
my beliefs & mis
representing my opinions.
Why do you think there were further protests in Libya today?
I have no opinion; I cannot begin to guess.
Ordinary Moslems, sickened by the attack on the embassy are driving the extremists out.
I don 't pretend to know,
seems unlikely. I dunno, but I suspect
that it is a lot more likely that thay r just fighting among themselves
for factional advantage. Has that ever happened b4 ?
The militia suspected of killing the US ambassador to Libya nearly two weeks ago
has been driven out of its base in the eastern city of Benghazi.
Police and protesters stormed the HQ of the Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia.
The HQ of the Sahaty Brigade, said to have official backing, was also stormed.
At least nine people were killed there, another died elsewhere.
The attack on the US consulate was triggered by an amateur video made in the US which mocks Islam.
Witnesses say supporters of Ansar al-Sharia gathered outside its Benghazi headquarters,
in front of the crowd, waving black and white banners.
They fired into the air to try to disperse the protesters, but fled with their weapons
after the base was surrounded by waves of people shouting "No to militias".
Buildings and a car were set alight and fighters evicted.
In a statement later, a spokesman for the group said militiamen had evacuated
the premises after their commander had ordered to "hand them over to the people of Benghazi" to preserve security.
However, in a standoff outside the headquarters of the Sahaty Brigade in the city, three people were killed
and at least 20 injured according to witnesses and officials.
Blaming a whole swathe of people for the actions of a tiny minority
puts you in the same mindset as Torquemada and Himmler.
I got a good laff out of that, Izzy, for which I thank u
This is the first time that I have been compared to those 2.
Point of Information:
please describe how Torquemada blamed
"a whole swathe of people for the actions of a tiny minority" ?
To which "actions" were u referring ?
