    I know. You shouldn't have commented.

    Thanks buddy, I'm aware of that, have posted it in various threads myself. He wasn't working for the US government, and was popped under the trading with the enemies act. (He was rewarded in the end by having a son and grandson become presidents!!!) I believe the poster I was responding to was suggesting the US helped the rise of Hitler as I was suggesting the US helped the rise of the Islamic State. The "US" usually refers to the government, and not an individual American.

    The current slaugther, while barbaric and abhorrent, is actually pretty tame compared to what was normal during the Muslim invasion and destruction of the Near East and North Africa. That was on a different scale (and also of course in a different time).

    And what did the people who didn't watch the Egyptian video say about it in both contexts? If you hit the bottom of the hole, stop digging.
