    But no, I'm saying there is a reason why war should not be something we enter into frivolously. It shold be something that saddens us even when it is justified. And anger us when it is not.

    nice try, close but no cigar. I never lumped all muslims together and called them terrorists


    I guess you haven't read the quran lately. If you are a muslim and you faithfully practice what is written in the quran then you must hate all non-believers.

    You might read the origninal comment. But it is too often a consequence of war. When we have war, we will too often see this.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Nice semantics.

    The army is releasing information now that the story has broken. I would wager they have been trying to keep it under raps for as long as possible (I would if I were them), and will not release much information as it could inflame the situation and hurt a possible conviction.
    Taking body parts as trophies isn't a real crime, in my opinion.

    so, taking body parts of fallen American soldiers is not criminal in your view

    interesting position to take

    Ah, no. It contains references to other items that may be included in a trial as evidence. Some of that may include hearsay, which, in some instances, is allowable as evidence in a civilian court proceeding and, I assume, in a court martial proceeding as well.

    I guess you haven't read the quran lately. If you are a muslim and you faithfully practice what is written in the quran then you must hate all non-believers.

    Surely the vilest of animals in Allah's sight are those who disbelieve (8:55)

    "Fight those who do not believe in Allah...And the Jews say Ezra is the son of God; and the Christians say Christ is the son of God; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; Allah's curse be on them; how they are turned away!" (Koran 9:29-30)

    And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah (8:39)

    When the sacred months have passed away, THEN SLAY THE IDOLATERS WHEREVER YOU FIND THEM, AND TAKE THEM CAPTIVES AND BESIEGE THEM AND LIE IN WAIT FOR THEM IN EVERY AMBUSH, then if they repent and keep up prayer [become believers] and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them (9:5)

    And if they intend to act unfaithfully towards you, so indeed they acted unfaithfully towards Allah before, but He GAVE YOU MASTERY OVER THEM (8:71)

    FIGHT THEM: ALLAH WILL PUNISH THEM BY YOUR HANDS AND BRING THEM TO DISGRACE, AND ASSIST YOU AGAINST THEM. (9:14)

    FIGHT THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN ALLAH, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, NOR FOLLOW THE RELIGION OF TRUTH, OUT OF THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE BOOK [Christians and Jews], until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and THEY ARE IN A STATE OF SUBJECTION. (9:29)

    O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination. (9:73)
