    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.
    The message that "Not all Muslims are terrorists" has been dealt with thoroughly. There is not one person in the western democracies who doesn't know that.

    Yet your reaction to muslims (as an example barring all muslims from being able to immigrate to Canada) suggests perhaps you do not know this.

    Referring to OBL as one individual terrorist is laughable, and dismissing the reason for an attack from the guy that attacked you, and told you why, is stupid. But you have good company.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Well tell me, what could have been worse then what we have with the US having been the dominant influence in the ME for twenty years?

    That is false.
    Every "radical" is having "fun" killing while we have video and tape evidence of American soldiers laughing as their rockets slaughter people, in one case an American journalist.
    Do you feel that the American military is no better than ISIS?
    But post one picture of a machine gun aimed at a kid's head and a terrified nation demands yet another invasion without even proof the guns are held by Muslims or ISIS, they could be American boy scouts.
    You find that likely?
    I have seldom seen on an American board one comment nor link to a Muslim organization that has deplored these attacks and when they do occur, there are 3 to one posts claiming its all lies.
    Perhaps because a Muslim protesting violence against innocent people on an American board is not going to attract as much attention as, for example, Muslims rioting or murdering over Mohammed cartoons.
    Watching American television and film, one gets the clear idea that, as you have asserted [albeit with the world weary phrase "extremists"] Muslims really, really like killing, and believe they will go to heaven for doing so.
    Well some do. Even send their unfortunate children out to bomb innocent people. Should we censor that?
    It is ignored that Muslims have been living among you, winning world boxing titles, curing cancer, inventing telephone aps since the early 1900's.
    I think most people would be pleased to hear of Muslim accomplishments. I know Obama wants them to be included in NASA so they can develop more self esteem.
    It has never occurred to anyone that Muslims live in peace in Canada [that claim always gets challenged with claims of riots in Canadian cities, but there is never a link], that they live as a majority in Indonesia, a land with a fraction of the crime rate of even your best city.
    You claim to live in Vancouver but genuinely don't know of the riots? How about the planned beheading of the PM? The planned bombing of a passenger train? None of these attracted your attention - and you actually need a link???
    But that NEVER gets mentioned anywhere in US media.
    It seems you are really not familiar with events in Canada. Perhaps you should find out more of what's going on in Canada and then turn your criticism to the States.

    Wars between ME Nations, genocide, the development of WMD, and the worlds oil in the hands of fanatical dictators.

    Typical conservative position. The regions oil belongs to the world. I've got news for you Grant, that's not democratic at all. And that the US being at war with Middle East nations is better then them being at war between themselves is one of the reasons I resent your constant volunteering of Americans blood and treasure. Get Canada to do more!

    It is funny how when the US attacks an Islamic country the US is responsible for creating terrorists. When the Soviets attack an Islamic country the US is also responsible to creating terrorists.

    You have your history of Afghanistan incredibly screwed up. The remains of the US involvement in Afghanistan was the Northern Alliance, a moderate, pro-west, pro-human rights group.

    The radical Islamists flocked to Afghanistan to fight the Soviets, not the US.

    It's essentially the same nonsense that had brain dead people claiming for 20 years that the US made Saddam Hussein the threat he was... all while Saddam tooled around Iraq and Kuwait killing innocent civilians with Soviet armor and weaponry.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
