<quoted text>Little slow on comprehension? Read it again Slow Clyde. "but let's talk today, since 9-11 there have been over 19000 deadly islamic terrorist attacks." How many Christian attacks since 9/11 mr bigot?
At least 132,000 civilians have died from 10 years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a new study by Brown university. And that’s a conservative estimate.

No one can say with certainty how many civilians have died in these wars. But researchers at Brown’s Watson Institute for International Studies found that between 12,000 and 14,000 of them perished in Afghanistan — the most recent of which came from Tuesday’s audacious insurgent attack on Kabul’s most famous hotel. Another 120,000 died in Iraq. An estimated 35,000 more lost their lives in Pakistan, where the United States is fighting a shadow war against terror groups and militants.(Although the report says it can’t “disaggregate civilian from combatant death” there, which is kind of a big deal.)

But even by the Institute’s own admission, the death toll is far higher. The Institute only counts direct violence that killed civilians — bombings, gunshot wounds, missile strikes, whatever. It doesn’t include indirect deaths, as occur when war creates refugees that can’t find food, clean water or adequate medical care. Nor does it include the lost limbs and emotional suffering that are a part of every war. Nor does it attempt to count civilian deaths in clandestine conflicts like Yemen or Somalia.

Yes I did read your post, and yes you did say islamic attacks. I didn't. My point was there may not of been islamic attackes but our attacks on their country is consider terrorist attacks to them.
Here let me post it again, read it, and let me know if you still come up with the same conclusion. I'll point out what you must have missed the first time.

Maybe you should ask the US air force how many air strikes it has carried out sense 911.
Below is the part I figure you either missed or didn't understand.
"If you are a muslim in a muslim country that has been bombed, I pretty sure you would consider them terrorist attacks."
Did you notice I said if you are a muslim?
My point being, what is a tactical strike for one, is a terrorist attack to the other.
Our leader is a christian, and at least 75% of our soldiers are christian, so yes most are christians soldiers.
If I sound ridiculous to you or any other poster, maybe you should try thinking, you may find yourself less likely to make ad hominem attacks to make up for your lack of the ability to see both side of the war.
but we are not a Christian nation, we don't fight as a Christian nation we are not fighting with a cross. we don't kill and shout Praise Jesus.

Should I post a few killings that has happened in the US?
All these countries are at war with themselves, muslims are trying to untify islamic people in to one force. So far we have helped those people, and I can tell you that they will not be grateful to us for it. Divided they are unable to resist to west. Those dictators were the only things keeping muslims from uniting, we are taking them out one by one. This will mean something to our soldiers, and not in a good way.
I doubt you can find too many killings here in the US that are the result of killing in the name of God. But plz try. Muslims have been killing each other since the beginning, Sunni vs shia. Who will win? Those dictators are the only ones that know how to control them, look at results, taking them out brings more chaos, are u crzy? Obama's huge mistake is taking out dictators. Now the Muslim brotherhood and other radical groups are taking control.

<quoted text>Let me continue your discussion of religion here Sly Clyde, thanks for asking. I don't think any religion should be used to Govern the people. In Iran they hang gays because of Sharia law. Now to your question Sly C: Don't judge the Muslims that you know by Islam and
don't judge Islam by the Muslims that you know. Islam is an ideology. No ideology is above critique, particularly one that explicitly seeks political and social dominance over every person on the planet. Let me be clear, I passionately believe that no Muslim should be harmed, harassed, stereotyped or treated any differently anywhere in the world solely on account of their status as a Muslim. Islam is not simply a belief about God. It is a word that means submission. Islam is a set of rules that define a social hierarchy in which Muslims submit to Allah, women submit to men and all non-Muslims submit to Islamic rule.
Since we don't live in a Muslim country - where censorship, intimidation and brute force are shamelessly employed to protect Islam from intellectual analysis - we are still free to openly exercise our right to debate the merits of the Islamic value system against Western Liberalism. By the same token, don't draw conclusions about the Muslims in your life based on the true nature of Islam. Like any other group, not all Muslims think alike. Even if there is no such thing as moderate Islam, it does not mean that there are no moderate Muslims. Every individual should be judged only on the basis of their own words and deeds.
let me tell u summat.der r ova 60 groups in islam and only about 7 practise islam correctly,so imagine how many ppl r practising islam contrary to their actual religion.so tyrants in islam who bomb up places,rape murder in da name of islam r actually gna get sin of wat dey do.so u have a point

Over 2 million innocent people died in Vietnam after we left. Was that our fault too? Maybe the blame should go to the Governments there that look the other way like Pakistan saying they had no idea bin laden was there in that compound. lol...yeah, that's the ticket. The blame is not USA all the time.

That same sex marriage makes either a man or woman is disposable and the differences between man and woman aren't emotional arguments, they are based on the definition of same sex marriage and human nature.

<quoted text>That's silly: the legal existence of a right to free speech is not contradicted by the fact that some people can't talk (or write or gesture meaningfully). Rights still exist even if in potentia, because they are statements about State power, either as limits to State power (what the State may or may not with/for/to you) or as requirements of it (what the State must do for you); Heinlein's character's argument that the isolated man drowning in the middle of the ocean has no 'right to life' is categorically inept in the same way, as he is (presumably) beyond State power to effect his rescue.
As a matter of settled law, heterosexual couples, with very few exceptions (where 'few' refers to the fraction of people in the U.S. who are your parents or siblings) have a right to marry even if (e.g.) one of them were incarcerated.
they gay community turned down equal rights to pursue the changing of the word marriage and that has back fired
