    I am only referring to what the extremists are declaring. I love how Muslims love to complain about the Crusades, but conveniently forget about their centuries of aggression prior to this.

    Despite our disagreements here, that does nothing to change our basic agreement on Somaliland.

    Seeing its Moderates that are in the front line of defensive not US, I beg to differ. Americans are safe an ocean away but the moderates in Pakistan, Iraq and other Muslim countries trying to prevent extremists do not have that luxury
    America has it's own history of standing up to its own internal aggressors. We fought a war to oust Great Brittain and we fought a war against our own people to end slavery. I have no sympathy for these "moderates" who sit idly by and watch the extremists (who are supposedly few in number) run rampant and pretend to speak for the entire religion. When the moderates take up arms against their own bad seeds, then they will garner my sympathy.

    Who forgets it? Crusades just over shadows it and quite rightly.

    Extremists from all religion declare stupid things. Why use it as a representation of the majority?

    Indeed, Somaliland is common ground

    Then wait a long time.
    I would not pick up arms against anybody [possible exception for Islamists in Somalia]

    Moderates do not have the money and backing extremists have.

    I'm pretty sure we would be willing to arm moderate parties willing to fight entities like the Taliban.

    On this point, we have basic agreement

    Are you sure?
    US seems to have alot of close deals with Saudi Arabia who in turn practices and spreads the most extreme version of Sunni Islam. [Who in turn make up 90% of the 1.2 billion Muslim population]

    We already HAVE done this. We supported the Northern Alliance against the Taliban and are currently supporting the relatively moderate Afghani government.

    As for the KSA, I am in complete agreement with you here. Why we support them - and that support has been bipartisan for decades - is beyond me. It is an absolute disgrace.

    Crusades is just something we'll never see eye to eye on lol

    Good to hear, 1 group of 100 declaring war is nothing.

    Lol, i just had an arguement with my friend, i hate it when people try and compare Israel to Somaliland. It doesn't work

    Yeah, I'm pretty damned sure we would arm moderate parties willing to fight the extremists. Especially since we have done so repeatedly throughout history.
