Actually, the Muslims were the invaders. The Crusaders were finally actively resisting against centuries of Muslim aggression. The First Crusade was a direct response of the continued advances of the Great Seljuq Empire against the remains of the Roman Empire in the late 10th century.Crusades? Hmmm....Have you ever read the history of the Crusades? Wouldn't we have to be the attackers that started this, and be holding lands, and stealing invaded countries wealth, and postalizing to fit that mold? Man, drop the DailyKOS rhetoric will you?
And some of us were equally as critical of Bush on this point as we are of President Obama.Look, I'll agree that borrowing money to fund this war is the wrong way to go. But didn't Obama say he was going to stop that? Has he?
