a classic Muslim tradition carried out before a large offensive.
war is a last resort.If our enemy wishes to surrender or end the conflict then we don't wage a war.we keep negotiating as lond as they don't fail. for Osama its different.He started it,so yes no excuses for that.
Yeah, religion, or fanaticism of any kind, seems to be a bad thing. If you take anything too seriously, you get a wee bit crazy. But reading something like the King James Bible, which most Christians read, is not so good, becuase the words have been translated from Aramaic or Latin to greek to Latin to English and have changed words with different meanings, as a result. that is one thing I like about the idea of not translating the Koran/Quran: if the words don't change, then the message shouldn't change. Unfortunately, words take different meanings over time, and everything can be made to mean something else. For example: In the Old Testament, I think, it says thatr Lot was turned to salt when looking back at Sodom or somethinglike that. That could be literal, but it could be an expression, meaning that she become infertile. See? Different meanings! BTW don't trust my information, it is probably incorrect. I don't practice any religions, the one I know most about is Buddhism...

Religion isnt the cause of evil. People who misinterprit the verses, etc. And the religion are the ones that make ti seem evil. NO religion in the world tells its people to kill another.(except maybe a type of satanism..) Osama isnt a real muslim and misinteprits. I bet Pope Urban II did/said some stuff purposly to start the crusades, etc.
corrupt people were the cause of all evil.The end.
Machiavelli's ApprenticeI always found the idea that the oil companies liked the war pretty hilarious - a war is the last thing a company wants, it completely distabilizes their supply of the resource.
Surely you are kidding? The oil industry was privatized and immedeatly taken over by American or international oil companies. They have a new, extremely cheap source of oil, it's the best that can happen for them.
Emir Al-Azizcorrupt people were the cause of all evil.The end.
Great summary*Claps until hands bleed*. But corrupt people only start the trouble, the good people who are tricked by the corrupt people continue them.
I honostly don't believe religion is cause of all evil. Stupid people are. Its not like God or Allah or whatever wants people to kill eachother, it is people who are stupid and take things to seriously and say, these people aren't of my religion! I should kill them! I would guess religous fanatics are more the cause alot of evil. From the Crusaders to the Radical Muslims today, Religous fanatics suck. I'm never had much of a fascination with Islam, but I think Mohammend was similer to Jesus's? Peace? Maybe not love, but I think both of their messages overall was "Peace." Unless you count the Christian TV evangelists, those guys are annoying as hell. One final thought, would you fucking people stop critisizing (Spelling?) Bush? It pisses me off. You people call him an idiot and a warmonger, but I would like you to rise that far in politics. It's not his fault the U.S. was attacked, and I would have done the same damn thing I was in office, attack Afghanistan. I never really agreed with Iraq, but we must have foiled a few radical Muslims. Also, he had a good Idea, kill them before they kill us, and plus, most people supported him when they thought Saddam had Nuclear weapons. I know a few other reasons, but I have horrible memory, so you won't be hearing them.
Aha! I remembered one! If you were the president in the most brutal time in the history of Earth, how well do you think you would fare, with all these political upheavals and great Chaos of all these rebels. Give the guy some slack.
I never really agreed with Iraq, but we must have foiled a few radical Muslims.
the opposite,Islamists gained new power after the fall of saddam.The main parties in Iraq now are all religious.There are secular groups but they are the minority.
Do you mean political parties or Radical Muslims? I'm sorry I cannot understand that well, I'm still young.
"most brutal time in the history of Earth"? Methinks thou doth exaggerate quite a bit.
