    President Obama must have read the book, a win is a win and if the credit can go elsewhere so much the better.
    The will be less one upmanship coming at US if Russia gets the blame for peace.
    Like the mother’s care who saves their children, happy moms probably are not thinking about the sour folks that hate their own president.

    Win? Lose? What the hell is wrong with you people? You talk about “progress” and that republicans are caught in the 18th century on and on but the middle east, why we need to be tolerant of people who STILL kill women who are RAPED because they were there with no male family member to protect them and it is their fault that they enticed a man by existing in the same landscape lookin’ all hot in that burka……..Yep, you call conservative Christians "radical extremists, yet we have to be tolerant of those that would take off a person head simply because they don’t worship the way “The Prophet” dictated.

    Let the barbarians have at it, just do it over there.

    Bruce: Read “Love Wins” by Rob Bell. It’s a good discussion of those “conservative evangelicals”, BY an evangelical minister!

    Also important to realize that those same 630 plus laws of Moses have been used by ALL THREE bible religions as a base, to be distorted and abused by “latter day” followers, including the Inquisition (that Ratzinger was in charge of!), Judaic law, and many others, yes, including radical Muslims, who do NOT follow the actual Quran, but rather what those same latter day “nut cases” have come up with!

    Just as one aside, Mohammed only declared the veil be worn by HIS OWN WIVES, NObody ELSE!

    There’s also some really neat poetry out there by Sufi, and other Muslims over the centuries, that says not ALL are radicals. Remember, Hitler was raised Roman Catholic, and never denied the “faith”, thus, while many priests DID help folks escape his reign of terror, the Pope did, well, nada!

    Read Bell, while I remain a Buddhist at heart, altruism being the higher calling, he can make people think under a much brighter light with regard to the “God of Abraham”, and Jesus!

    ^OH! which, Assad, like Saddam, Qaddafi, and Mubarak, is much more Secular than possible replacements, and CHRISTIANS are already losing, as in Iraq, Libya, and Egypt, with our “interference” just something to think about.

    yes Trout. The history of Christianity is not pretty. The important part of that is the word HISTORY.

    Where is all the civilized world do Christians form armies, attack the religious buildings of other religions, and execute those people hanging or beheading them for their faith today?

    The founder of the sect that was called “Christianity” years after his death told a simple story and required little in the way of rules compliance. He pointed out the pitfalls that “could” keep one from following him but did not restrict anyone from their choices, certainly not to the point of ordering death for non believers as did Mohammed.

    He even pointed out the fact that elaboration on the simple rule of love was not what God had in mind. Or have you forgotten?

    “The whole Law of Moses and the teachings of the prophets depend on these two commandments.”

    Yep, all those elaborate writings of Moses and the additions from the legal beagles of the day the Pharisees are worthless unless you can do those two things. Love God and Love your neighbor. (Matt 22:40 from the Good News Bible)

    So while I have affinity for Buddhist philosophy I fail to see how your constant talk of hate for your fellow man, dwelling on past bad practices to “prove” that those Christians are just as evil today as in the past falls into the category of “love of neighbor”.

    As I’ve oft repeated, “history” isn’t “hate”. It’s why I suggest folks look at Bell’s book. As for “today”, what IS behind our wars on Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Tunisia, and targeting of 60+ million people in Iran? Using surrogates, isn’t an “escape” from blame.

    In the run-up to the Iraq invasion and the killing of hundreds of thousands of innocent people to find non-existent WMDs, the message was you don’t criticize your president in his job as commander in chief, and to do so is traitorous. Why have the rules changed? Except now the commander in chief is seeking to enforce International law for the actual use of WMDs, and he gets non-stop derision and under-mining. Furthermore, progress is being made without any loss of life. I don’t get it.
