    No. It was Americans. Many of the American soldiers in Bosnia were Muslim. We don't have an established religion in this country. Yes, I'm sure I read that somewhere...

    Source for your claim? I doubt very highly the number of American Muslim soliders even approached 3% of the military considering these numbers in 2000:

    There are 5 million to 7 million Muslims in the United States. They make up between 10,000 and 20,000 members of the American military.

    I'll rephrase, owing to thoughtless semantics on my part:

    Muslims were among the American soldiers fighting in Bosnia and Kosovo.

    But my main point remains: it wasn't Christians that saved Bosnia and Kosovo: it was Americans - Muslims, Christians, athiests, Jews, and others.

    Do you realize that the reason we live in this country is because the colonists wiped out Native Americans, claiming that they were barbarians who hadn't accepted Christ? And Christopher Columbus did the exact same thing when he came over from Europe. The colonization of both North and South America was based on Christians killing in the name of divine right.

    9/11 was not done for religious reasons. It was done for political reasons. They hate America because America occupies the Arabian peninsula, interferes with their politics, inserts puppet dictators and steals their oil. Moderate Muslims condemn acts of terror, but when you have a whole region destroyed by war and poverty, extremism is going to manifest itself there and it cannot be completely stopped.

    It's amazing to me how ignorant Americans still are. Do you think the Muslim world likes Barack Obama? Let me tell you, they don't. They like him better than Bush, but they don't agree with his policies at all. Not that facts are going to persuade you, but I thought at least one or two people here could get something out of the truth.

    Exactly what you said. The US military is made up of all religions.

    9/11 wasn't even done in the name of Islam. Osama said it was retaliation for American involvement in Lebanon in the 80s so why are we holding Muslims accountable for 9/11?
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    because it gives some people a chance to slander a minority they disagree with.
