It's happening. Our media just can't find a way to make a buck over it so they ignore it.

I don't mean to be a dick about it, but as much as you may not like to be called a soldier. You are a soldier. Virtually every dictionary defines a marine as a soldier.
I am bitter, and full of hate. Afterall hate is a normal human emotion and anyone who tells you they do not or never have felt the emotion hate is either lying or in denial.You are bitter. Many of us are after all of this. I don't know your experience through today's enemy, but I can guarantee you that if I am able to maintain a positive health about this you can too. From Somalia to two tours in Iraq I am able to still believe that our enemies are distinctive and separate from the vast majority. I've actually had to be exonerated for a mistake against this enemy so..... if I am able to transcend the media and politician's rhetoric you can too.
I absolutely believe that we have to step back and recognize that we are greater than an enemies goal. Islam's "rule" ended with Western "imperielism." I place that word into parenthesis because I believe it is unfair considering that the west (Christian world) was merely taking back lost land after Islamic explosion and expansion. There is no future for Islamic Shar'ia as Bashir or the Tali-Ban know it. Even the House of Saud dismisses it when it inconvenineces their securities. The "Al-Quedas" are on borrowed desperate time. They know it but refuse to acknowledge it because their adherence has no social or economic opportunity to dissuade them otherwise. It's a success in Iraq that will prove to be the counterpunch to our enemies vision as to how to achieve what we already have. This region's Muslims have been seeking democracy since European colonialism. They are are all watching Iraq today. They have to succeed or we are in the ****.
The reason so many liberal voices for change within Islam are jailed in Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and even Iran is that it threatens the power of the elite who prefer economical power over the peasant through false religious masques. It's only the radicals and extremists who preach about Shar'ia because it is a default that counters the economic desparity between elite and peasant. The extreme few who actually believe in Shar'ia, as a religious cultural organization of people, are getting their asses handed to them all over the world. This is not the American Muslim.
I hope you are right and I am wrong about the American Muslim.
Have a good labor day Marine. And thankyou for serving our country.

⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
I find that preposterous.
Perhaps that's wrong, but it's the most likely occurrence.
I mean, **** man, you don't even live here. Some of us do. Some of us know the atmosphere here and have a little more insight to the situation than you do.
But you deign to know better than we do. It's not a guarantee, but it IS the more likely occurrence.
It's like I said in the thread reporting this: it's most likely a bunch of dumbass punk kids who did it. But they most likely did it because they felt inspired by a very anti-Islamic environment in the area right now.
If that's wrong, then it's wrong. But it's not bigoted. So if a swastika is painted on a synagogue, I'm supposed to first assume that it's the Jews who did it and not assume that it's someone who was anti-Jewish?
The ugly truth is that it has become politically correct on main street in America to be anything but a Christian. And other belief systems are being promoted by the state, in a sort of moral affirmative action movement. Make no mistake, the agenda isn't to free people from having Christianity shoved down their throat, its to get rid of it all together.
It's a shame that the first couple of responses sounded like they were filled with the vile ugly anger taking hold of this country.
We can only hope that these bigoted fearful people are just a loud minority and not a true representation of the character of this nation.
Thank God for the true American Christians in Tenn.
The simple fact is we dont know. And when the truth comes out...WHOEVER did it should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. But until you KNOW...you are simply laying on your back pissing in the air. Oh...but it IS fun to throw in all the attacks on Christians in the process isnt it, you bunch of purely tolerant unbiased liberal minded folk...
