76. Similar war, what similar war?
Edited on Mon Jul-25-05 10:58 PM by K-W
There is nothing at all similar.

Erm, the USA being a nation of hypocrites is not generalizing, it is true. A majority of Americans condemn foriegn terror and aggression but do not condemn American terror and aggression.

A generalization is saying that the 13 colonies were similar to the middle east, not pointing out the fact that America is full of hypocrites.

I could go through the vast history of the region and the vast number of empires, attacks and occupations you are ignoring, but the simple fact that you are ignoring the Romans is enough to discredit your argument.

You are making the equivelent of the conservative 'fair and balanced' argument, as if the fact that Arab states waged military campaigs of aggression has anything to do with our discussion. Of course Muslims invaded places, everyone invaded places, the point is that the muslims lost in the long run. Dont tell me about one sided because Christendom did not lose, western europe did not lose they won.

"You make it seem as if the only people that ever conquered anything were Christians."

I did no such thing. By the same logic I made it seem as if australia didnt exist!! Just because something isnt relevant to a discussion and I dont bring it up doesnt mean I am saying it didnt happen. Sheesh.

My history is just fine thank you, and what part of my last line is from outerspace exactly? And can we please stick to the topic we are discussing and not change the subject to Spain for no other reason that to point out muslim violence.
