    Who would believe that Muslims would do such a thing? Now let’s get back to calling for the Jews to lie down and peaceably allow themselves to be destroyed…

    Why are all the righties silent on the fact that Christians in Iraq lived relatively well before George W. Bush “liberated” them?

    Christians are being persecuted in over 25 countries, the reason for the 20th century was not Christianity it was a lack of it, Stalin forcing atheism & Hitler’s perversion of Christianity.

    During Sadam’s regime things went relatively well for Christians, which was odd for someone that actively sponsored terrorism. Things were dicey immediately after the “liberation”, got better over time (coinciding with the stabilization of the country) only now to get worse since the country is becoming unstable again.

    “The surge worked, and under GW and afterward the Middle East was relatively stable. Leave it to Obama to make all the mistakes that were made after WW1, As a direct result of Obama non policy, lead from behind and supporting things like the Brotherhood in Egypt during their lost year, We get what we have today!”

    The cries of “but but but but but buuuush” are especially ironic given that President Obama took CREDIT for the state of Iraq at the time that he withdrew our forces from the region. We later discovered that he had mentally checked himself out of the region as well, dismissing warnings about ISIS and the deterioration of Iraq’s political situation.

    So you are saying every follower of Islam is a terrorist? Most of them are fine with Christians and Jews. Just a few hardliners who believe they are not only right but all others must convert or just die.

    It was the US that first recruited then turned on Iraq. The US has been the main destabilizing force along with Israel in that region.

    ISIS didn’t exist till all the violence and such in Iraq from decades of slow and fast destruction by the West. And the civil war in Syria.

    They started in Syria then spread to part of Iraq. If the US hadn’t turned on Saddam ISIS wouldn’t exist. The US also turned on Syria too who has been helpful to the US for years.

    War brings out violent tendencies. Some small groups become super violent and intolerant. We see that, not the perpetual error of US invasion and conquest.

    Varvel must have missed the funeral for that Christian lady last week in Gaza. Nah, just too inconvenient to mention that Christians live in Gaza, not just Muslims.

    I know I am not totally right here, but I remember well after 9-11 when a few American Muslims tried to organize a rally in D.C. to show their support of their host United States. Very few (about 50, I think) showed up. Too many times I read about more radicalization, more Imams preaching Jihad against the West, the U.S. in particular, I hear about more Web sites instructing followers how to make bombs and how to deploy them. I recently saw a U-tube with Islamics DESTROYING a British Cemetery in North Africa, hauling down the Christian cross, smashing the tombstones of British soldiers who drove the Germans out of their country.
    I have not read about any Imam calling for peace, for co-existence, or, Allah forbid, FORGIVENESS!

    After the Iranian revolution, Ayatollah Khomeini held quick trials against thousands of his own people; ALL were sentenced to death. He himself went up on the roof where the executions were being carried out to watch. One of the other Imams asked him once that some of these men might be innocent, that perhaps they should not be so swift in passing judgements. The Ayatollah replied “Then they are martyrs to the revolution, and will have great reward” His tomb in Teheran is visited by hundreds daily, and he is revered in Iran. And he calls the U.S. the Great Satan!

    I think it was a mistake for the U.S. to have supported the U.N. resolution, in 1946, calling for the establishment of the state of Israel. It has cost us dearly ever since. BUT, the promise being made, we cannot walk away. If we did, I believe every surrounding Islamic state would descend upon the Israelis and butcher every last one, egged on by Iran.

    I don’t trust them.

    How did Saddam “turn on us?”

  14. Night-Gaunt49

    The Right wing’s inability to see cause and effect since they refuse blame.

    Obama didn’t “screw it up” the Iraqis would not budge on giving US soldiers a free hand with no legal effects. Would you? NO.
