Sure they denounced wrong acts and we still do. But if we judge these acts by reading fiction then we should respond by writing fiction. Dealing with facts, as in a court of law, is a far better way to go.It goes to the claim you made that we don't oppose or openly oppose these things in the past. We did. Didn't have instant media, and like today, we often spoke in oter medium, like in novels. But, people did nenounce wrong acts even then.
Actually I never said any such thing. In fact you have the gall to claim I said we are fighting "Islam" and in the very same post you quote me as saying "When we are at war, and indeed we are at war with Islamist terrorists, we are better off to trust our military than not". Can you really not make the distinction between the Islam and Islamists??You said we were fighting Islam. That is fighting a religion.
Let me get this straight, ok?None of those countries attacked us either. And those terrorist who attacked us came form SA, not Iraq. Not Afghanistan. And they can be found in nearly every country in the world. Again, no country attacked us. And you miss the point with the KKK and the skin heads. If I were to say that we need to stop Christains, or fight Christians, because of acts by people in the KKK or skinheads, then I would eb doing what you're doing with Islam.
Do you feel that because Islamic terrorists can come from all over the world we should just sit back, like ducks in a row, and let them attack? And if any of them are caught in an airport line-up they should then be tried in a civilian court? Please, no more nonsense about the KKK or Christians, all right? These meanderings serve no purpose.
My error. It is al-taqiyya that allows Muslims to lie, and I'm sure you understand that terrorists are also encouraged to lie, and make false claims about torture, etc.
Al queads is Islam? See you're doing it again, making the two the same thing. They are not.
See above.Second point. Deception is taught to many, including those in the US military. How to resist torture is also taught, also to the US military. This is understood all around. It is not the religion, Islam, that teaches deception. As well read as you are, you still need to make the proper distinctions.
A tactic for what? To what purpose? Have you thought this through?terrorism is nothing more than a tactic.
