Quite an "about-face" over Iraq

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

You see, now you're even misreading my posts... i never said "dominated by a form of religion which sees itself as above the law"... I said "dominated by a form of religion which places itself AS law". As for your capitalism comparison... back to you hating successful people again?

And while we do have religious nutters, they're of a different type. have you ever actually met an islamic, of any type, and talked with them about their religion? honestly in islam even the non extremists are believe the word of their book should be the law rather than the laws of elected officials. fanatic christians don't. they think certain parts of their book should supercede or influence government law at times, but they don't think it's the whole of the law. the christ book actually even has a loophole clause that tells them to follow the laws of their land.

you're also wrong about having a "wronged people" to appeal to... psychologist have shown that these groups will build steam no matter what. humans will always have groups that seek power, and use belief to get it. and there are certain groups of people actually genetically predisposed to belief in religion. combine all of those things and you can INVENT the "wrongs" needed to make them follow. the partisan split in the US is a really nice example... of that. completely manufactured.

1. Are you completely illiterate? Hating successful people? You, and everybody else that has even been paying the slightest bit of attention when they read my posts know that you're doing the starving Pelican BS number.

Here it is again, for ADD sufferers:

I don't hate successful people. I hate successful people who got there in an unethical or immoral way. Now please, print that out, and stick it on your fridge next to your NRA?GWB magazine picture.

2. No, I have never met 'an Islamic' (they're called Muslims, btw) Only you have done that, just as only you know everything about politics, I'm way too young and not American, and every critic of your failing government's shitty foreign policy is deceived/brainwashed and stupid.

I'm leaving the room now, and yes, I'm yet another idiot (one of hundreds) who thinks discussing foreign policy or guns with you is a waste of time because you are totally and utterly brainwashed, just like any fundamentalist, be they 'an islamic' or Xtian/other.

I was wondering who would move on first, after 8 pages of this. The jury is still out.

You know, when "everybody else" is saying something about you that you disagree with... maybe it's because your actions don't reflect your words.

Muslim or Moslem is always referring to a man, meaning "one who submits", with a female form Muslima, while Islamic denotes "belonging to Islam".
So no, you're wrong... it's not Muslim... it's Islamic, as in referring to the entirety of the people who practice it. People constantly calling it Muslim or "The Muslims" as a general term are the ones who have it wrong.

And not every critique of the government (which is so far from failing that calling it that shows how blinded you are by your hatred of it) do I consider wrong, I have more than a few of my own. It's just the ones that are blind blanket statements with zero practicality based on popular media's "bash america" trendiness.

LOL, I used to work with a self-confessed modest genius who came up with these brilliant statements:

1. Poor people want to be poor
2. Racism is good
3. We don't need to look after the environment

I'll just add

4. 'America only gets bashed because it's fashionable'(I won't ask WHY, even if that were true) and
5. Guns are always good

To that illustrious list.

PS I've contacted the BBC/CNN, Al-Jazeera/RT and several thousand other news agencies including the venerable Fox News,as well as all those stupid Iraqis. Afghans, Syrians, Pakistanis, Indians etc. and informed them that they are wrong re 'Moslems'. They said to thank you.

Over and out.

Wars have been fought for centuries and today because of "God Fobbers." Why can't they just keep it to themselves.

1. Poor people want to be poor
2. Racism is good
3. We don't need to look after the environment

#1 Not they want to be poor but are usually unable to handle money or are either stupid or lazy. Point case my girlfriend...gave her $20.00 to go shopping...she comes back with nothing. For the little money she makes she pisses it as fast as she makes it. She grew up poor and probably will stay poor.

#2 Not that its good but If one person has a bad experiences with a different race or culture does that make him a raciest?

#3 we all care about the environment but I wont shoot myself in the foot financially or individually for future generations. I.E Carbon tax. what a sick joke.

Hey! Don't drag me into this.

However, I do agree with OD's point that, whilst you may not actually dislike financially successful people, you certainly come across that way. I don't think many of respect people who became successful as a result of immoral behaviour; it's kind of a given. Why, then, do you bang on about it so much?
