Posted in: Radical Islamic group plans anti-war march in UK See in context

Not coming from the US I actually knew Islam before 2001 and I had never had a problem with it - apart from the problems I have with religion in general. Actually I find how the US government has beeng trying to turn Islam into the new boogeyman quite the offence to my intelligence. Also, at least in this case I agree with islam4UK. Thousands of innocent people have died just so the military industry could make a profit. Now, I dont care that much what religion they were but Im assuming that 99.9% of them were muslims. You know, normal people watcing TV at home, relaxing after a long days work, who just happen to believe in Allah... till a US bomb hit their house. Not terrorists, normal working people who unlike soldiers or terrorists dint sign up for it. Of course I also believe that your rip what you sow. For every child, man or woman coalition bombs kill there will be fathers, children and husbands ready to blow themselves up looking for revenge.

Posted in: Funeral held for powerful Canadian mobster's son See in context

If his father and grandfather are known mobsters, how come they still in activity? Police's hands too small for such big fish?

Read again. The father is in prison and there`s no mention of whether the grandfather still has anything to do with the family business or problems with the law.

We should all thank these hard men who risk their lives to fight the wackos who would torture and kill us without hesitation or remorse.

Unless you are an iraqi and those "hard men" are the whackos trying to torture and kill you!

Posted in: Little resistance on day 2 of U.S.-Afghan offensive See in context

Most insurgents in Afghanistan belong some type of warlord or the Taliban. So obviously they will naturally be the locals, however though public support for them is very low. Iraq was no different, foreigners only numbered at most a few thousand. As a result the vast majority of the Iraqi insurgency was made up of locals. Most of the insurgents, Taliban, do cause genuine disruption to the daily life of the afghanis.

You mention warlords. My biggest problem with the Afghan sittation is that where the Taliban can be considered warlords the "government" is made up of warlords just the same. This is a full scale civil war and the US is right in the middle of it. Karzai has no legittimacy whatsoever and is only in power because he happens to be backed by the west. His is a puppet government at most and will be overthrown the moment western forces leave Afghanistan, if theyll ever leave. But lets not fool ourselves thinking we "liberated" the country.

Anyone who believes the Afghan insurgents are just going to hide do not have a clue -- sad to say.

You could always enlighten us.

and highlighted the inability of Somalia’s weak government to protect even the small section of the capital it controls.

How did this become "the government"? Sure there must be more powerful factions in the country that could lay claim to that title?

I don`t see how this would be such a big deal. What are they going to do? Reveal military secrets? Request to appear on Oprah? I understand how this will be used by jihadists for probaganda purposes but so will anything that happens to these guys. In any case given that anyone will then have access to the procedings what they say will become public domain regardless.

Posted in: Palin coy about 2012 run, but door is open See in context

Whenever Sarah Palin opens her mouth the stuff that comes out is comedic genius. I still dont understand how conservatives take her seriously. When she talks about Iraq even though she was asked about Iran you really have to wonder whether shes anything more than a party-line parrot. If you dont then I guess youre a lost cause.

Didn`t I read this same news a couple years ago? And what does his mean:

The process, though, will take years and no showdown is imminent.

Is this article basically just an attempt to stirr stuff up? Is there any actual substance underneath all this?

what a ridiculously stupid comment

Not by any ,means. Foreigners are outsiders and are not supposed to bow. Especially since they dont understad how it works, as Obama clearly shows. His bow is so deep it looks more like hes making fun of the emperor than anything else.
