Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
How Reaganís Mideast Policy Won the Cold War.....
Ronald Reaganís centenary coincides with the unraveling of Ronald Reaganís Middle East. The president born February 6, 1911, is most associated with the dramatic end of the Cold War in Europe. But you can make a powerful case that the Cold War was won ó not in Europe ó but in the Middle East. Four events were decisive. 1. The Reagan administration cemented Egypt, the largest and most important Arab country, into the U.S. alliance system.
Banished from Egypt, the Soviets developed a relationship with the second strongest Arab state, Iraq. On June 7, 1981, Israeli jets smashed the Iraqi nuclear reactor at Osirak. The Reagan administration joined the UN condemnation of Israel. Yet the U.S. benefited enormously from the act it condemned. Lacking nuclear weapons, on the defensive in the war it had launched against Iran in September 1980, Iraq was forced into greater economic dependence on the Gulf Arab states aligned with the U.S. ó another blow to Soviet influence. 3.

How Reagan’s Mideast Policy Won the Cold War
There is no link there so I have to take it as opinion, and one poorly formed. I seriously doubt the entire nation of Islam is of the faith that "killing infidels" is fun. If you were to read the Koran, and what it calls the faithful to do, you would find that anyone following that religion would not welcome death, but fear it like the rest of us as they too believe in final judgement.
No entire nation can be so crassly and sweepingly identified and judged. Would you dare say that all blacks are criminals, of that all Jews are cheats?
Same bigoted, racial stereo-typing; you have been taught to hate all Muslims in the xenophobic propaganda campaign following 911.
