Sorry for replying so late, it's becoming more of a habit
Witch King, you're currently being an extremist. I'm assuming this is because you're very angry, and that you're not always like that. Please calm down and discuss things in a better way.
1 - Religion and terrorism are mutually exclusive
From your name I can tell that you are a religious fundamentalist terrorist from Afghanistan. Were you the one who told Bin Laden to leave? What did he say? Did he spit in your face?
Religion has lead the Afghans to put their women in slavery. Did you beat your wife today?
2 - Fundamentalism : The belief in old and traditional forms of religion, or the belief that what is written in a holy book is completely true.
I'm a fundamentalist, and that means I'm totally against terrorism and I'm totally against killing civilians (let's not say innocent people). Terrorists aren't fundamentalists, it has never happened in the history of Muslim leaders that such massacres were made. I don't know who fooled the world to think that islamic fundamentalism is terrorism. You shouldn't call them fundamentalists, they shouldn't think of themselves as fundamentalists.
My fundamentalism means I believe what's in the Qur'an is true, and that's good - for your sake.
3 - Women : Since you've judged that Islam has led the Afghans to enslave women, give me your evidence Islam ordered/instructed them to do so (verses from the Qur'an or sayings of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) )
I've seen a frame of the video tape containing one that's supposed to be the supspect, and the real photo of the supspect. They look absolutely different from each other.
We have video tape of them getting into the plane. The took flight training lessons in the USA.
Anyway, around 700 muslims have been killed there. Whoever's done it is either not a muslim, or is just a muslim by id card (i.e doesn't represent Islam)
Indeed. Those terrorists claim to be muslims, to judge that you'd have to check their actions against the Islam's written laws (found in Qur'an & Sunnah). If anybody tries that, he'll find that those people are completely against Islamic teachings.
the muslim religion is not that extremist
And by the way, in psychology there's this personality known as 'extremist'. It has nothing to do with the religion or faith, it's a presonality that wherever put (in any conditions/medium) would go to the extreme. If witch king is always like that, then he's an extremist and he can be easily converted to a terrorist give the correct medium.
A tough situation! How'd you expect them to hand Bin Laden then? If they trusted you, they would've handed him, but they don't.
The evidence is of the kind where by disclosing the source would lead to trouble. The US as had it's eyes on Bin Ladden for along time, he has also already been convicted of other crimes.
Many people here don't trust you, myself included. Don't get me wrong, but don't expect me to trust a country like U.S.A given all its actions around me, against me. We treat you with caution, hoping that - with your power - you'd make things right, but most of the time you don't.
By the way, if the U.S.A had its eyes on Bin Laden and is so sharp-eyed, how come they didn't stop the attack? I recall the someone said (from the C.I.A maybe, a long while ago) that they knew the color of Saddam's underwear. Now I wonder how they couldn't spot the plane-crash thing.
Hmmm, I know about the F-15's. I was speaking of an automatic air defense system that's supposed to counter any planes entering the Pentagon's air field.
Untrue. We scrambled the f15's to possibly shoot down the commercial airliner in washington but too late.
Please correct me Nick (and thank you very much for your reasonable, respectable post. Much appreciated :))
Well, to some extent it is. The Palestine-Israel problem is a huge one, and could take discussions alone. It all started from a religious aspect, Jews claiming rights to the land promised to them in the Torah (old testament) & Belfour of England promised to give them land in Palestine! (so it was started by England and many other European countries that supported Israel). Israel was founded in 1948 taking 54% of the land of Palestine(!!!) while the palestinians took 46% only.
The battle in Israel is not about ethnic cleansing. It is a religious war.
Palestinians are now fighting for their land (imagine someone claiming part of your land and founding a country in it, even if you're atheist you'd fight. It's your land).
Israel wants to fulfill the promise of the "land from the Euphrates to the river Nile", also found in the Torah. in 1967 they launched an attack against Egypt, and effectively invaded Sinai (Moshe Dyan, minister of Defense of Israel, said after the attack that they're the people of the Torah, and that they've to take the land the Torah promises them). Egypt launched an attack in 1973 reclaiming most of the land, then there was the cease-fire and we got the rest peacefully.
Why don't you try walking in his shoes? Think as if you're Bin Laden, the U.S.A is poking its nose in everything here, and in an unfair way too. He's an extremist, he hates U.S.A, and he became a terrorist.
Bin Laden is a terrorist. He admits it. I don't trust the guy. It looks like they are going to kill him one way or another. I think he needs to die, but that is just the beginning. Every terrorist in the world needs to die. All terrorist camps on earth need to be destroyed. Any government that harbors terrorists needs to be destroyed. That's the nice way. We could use nuclear weapons but we aren't going to. But than again it could happen.
Now, I'm not saying he's right or that it's OK to become a terrorist for such reasons. All I'm saying is that we should search for the root of the terrorism tree, the terrorism generator.
Why was the U.S.A attacked? Why not any other country?
You know, Some american journalists said that it's a battle against democracy, freedom, power, technology,.... to the end of such nonesense. Could this be the reason? Could this drive someone to bombard himself? I don't think so.
As far as I see, it's the american policy that's generating all this terrorism. Indeed the U.S.A is the most powerful, but if it had used its powers in a fair way noone would've done such attacks.
If you destroy all the terrorist camps on earth you'll have peace for several years, until the next generation of terrorists comes.
Go for the source, Be FAIR (and at the same time, punish the terrorists)
Ironically, criminals that have power and money are the judges. Only poor criminals are executed.
When you get rid of your stinking criminals than we all can have a good life. I don't see why the middle east can't become more technologically advanced and wealthy.
We live in a civilized world, at least I do.
The middle east is the biggest weapon market, rich countries sell undeveloped countries (3rd world countries or Stupid countries, call it as you like) weapons so that they kill each other and become more poor. While the rich become more rich, and then blame the poor for fighting in such a barbaric way, or more precisely blame it on their religions!
Where is this civilized world? I don't see it!
Isn't the U.S.A a criminal? Look at what they've done to the (1)Indians (2)Japan (Hiroshima & Nagazaki) (3)Vietnam (4)Iraq (A nation killed for its leader) (5)Palestine (6)Egypt (in the war of 1973, when we're reclaiming our land. We attacked on the 6th of october and successfully destroyed most of the Israelian armies in our land, on 14th october U.S.A supplied Israel by a huge air force that was simply too much for us to bear, the U.S force eradicated a whole tank legion (which was without air cover), a tank legion that's freeing the land of Egypt, conquered by Israel)
What about England? England enslaved half of this world, it's advancement is built on other countries' shoulders. When they invaded Egypt, they took all our richs for themselves. High-Salary jobs were for the English only. We've been conquered for so many years (70-80), England stole those years from us. How can we get them back? If we had a chance to live free all those years, many things would have changed.
(I don't hold anything against anyone from the UK now, sins aren't inherited. I'm just saying that no one's that clean. We should know ourselves better before blaming others)
France did the same thing here, Italy too.
What about the slaves from Africa? The miserable continent? Has U.S or Europe paid for that?
Where is the rich world going to sell weapons then?
That would be great if that section of earth fell off into the ocean and became submerged.
Man, you remind me of some Queen that told the hungry people to eat biscuits/cake (can anyone remind me of her name please?). You don't see things from our side, maybe you have the tools but we don't.
There are plenty of tools and education available now in the world that we do not need to babysit a nation or a race of people. I don't see why they can't pick up like the Japaneese and take their share of benefits.
Tools need money, money doesn't pop out of thin air (and we have loans, you know). And we're not allowed to buy many things, there is something known as forbidden technology that we can't be allowed to have.
Commerce and space exploration agreed. Now what's that about human rights and freedoms? Maybe you meant "The american/israelian human's rights" & chaos (instead of freedom)?
commerce, space exploration, and human rights and freedoms. At this stage the USA is the workhorse for most of this.
The world will live with or without America, no one (and no country) is important enough to stop life. Maybe it'd be better, who knows?!
Sadly, this is untrue. The medecine would've travelled here with extremely high prices (given that it's going to travel). Many kinds of medicine aren't sold here, and we've to buy them from outside with extremely high prices.
All that medicine would have traveled to the Middle East, we would have all benefited from it.
Examples please, what religions/countries are you talking about. Of all the religions I've known and read about, there's only one that orders people to conquer and kill and consider themselves a higher race.
<Series X4 1_0>
all the countries that are controlled by dangerous, primitive religions and beliefs, because they can't keep them for themselves. Some religons clearly says that to die in the "holy war" is their highest wish. They see everybody who are not like themselves as Satan (which means the rest of the world).
I'm saying this because most people judge religions without knowing anything about them, so don't get me wrong.
1 - This reminds me of something Hitler said about the black people.

We should be glad that they are like monkeys over there - they don't know what a computer is. Their laws are like the ones we had thousands of years ago
They're not like monkeys, and if they were you should've been sorry and should've felt ashamed of yourself for laughing at them instead of helping them.
2 - I'd like to know what you know about their laws.
We're all brothers, we should help & guide each other.
