    If you are old, you are justified, as the old age is often linked to mind's problems.
    There are violent people inside Islam, but they must be engaged by the local police. When they attack another country, the attacked country has the right to fight them, but targeting the individuals, not the population.
    R.Reagan adopted a better strategy against terrorism, with LIMITED bombing in Libia. 60 people were killed, may be more, but it was a normal respons to Gadafi terrorism. It was succesfull as Gaddafi changed.
    Nevertheless, the operation was not supported, Italy and France negated their skyes to the US planes, and Italian PM even sdvised Gaddafi of the attack allowing him to escape.

      There is nothing wrong with my mind as i remember from childhood, I also remember you saying Ronald Reagan was wrong in bombing Lebanon which I do not recall. And if the ruling government is allowing them safe haven surely they are a target of attack also just like Libya.

        Lebanon was wrong, anyway it was a one time episode like the more justified Libian bombing. Reagan did succed, while Bush1-2 and Clinton were a disaster for US.

    Recently I read the story of M. Izbicki, and wish to thank him to be a good christians, an exemplum for others.
    He asked the navy to recognize his objector status and after loosing the first round succeded.
    He understood that a christian could never approve a war, neither supporting it even in non combatant roles.
    He was discharged with honor !! This is the only way the christianity could be enhanced, not by giving bible to the people !!

        I was skimming through the Bible and I remember GOD saying this before Jesus' birth and as for Jesus everything is under his authority and I am sure He would want others to stand up against Islamic terrorists(and I do not care to hear that their fight is for revenge because that is false just as is the prophet Mohammad)who kill innocent people who have done them no harm!

        I am old, but I do remember reading in the Bible somewhere that it is good for a man to serve his nation in this manner. Unless of course the ruler(s) in charge are expansionists and just want to rule the world as your beloved religion has so much faith in, to put in action these Islamic extremist fighters who kill Christians, Jews and Muslims alike who do not believe in their insane killings and jihad. And did you hear the news? There has been 10 bombs exploded in playgrounds in Afghanistan and you tell me these people are not killer animals and should not be treated as such? Also for your information it was Jesus' purpose to die on the cross, for our salvation.

      Karzai was put in his place by the US beecause he is anti-taliban and their relatives were even killed by the Taliban. So what pamiri is saying is not true. On the other side Karzai istrying to stop a civil war through negotiation and moderation.
      This is a new position for Karzqi and should be appreciated by all the Afghan people.

    Every time the Afghan forces arrest Taliban, but the President who support Taliban Alqaeda and Pashtuns, release the Taliban, because most of Taliban is Pashtun and Karzai too, so why Karzai is releasing them. I belief the international forces should remove Karzai from his job, he is Taliban and he is Aqaeda. look Karzai is begun a releasing and empowering Taliban under the name of peace process, which most of Afghan are against the process, but Karzai sent some delegations to the united states to release 20 high Taliban commanders, is it good work? its completely against the humanity and against the Afghan people. Taliban is killing people every day but Karzai is trying to release them why?
    Karzai is misusing the resources of the united states in Afghanistan. We all humanity should be get unite against this kind of wild people like Karzai, to put in right direction our people and humanity.

      Jesus' forgiveness is meant for all to finally once love one another and not hold anything against anyone if they should be remorseful and ask for forgiveness, but like you said one shall do the time for the crime. It is up to the judge if he or she will not do it again or how much time is needed for their rehabilitation.

        I call your fighters cowards because they are using weapons of mass destruction instead of rifles like the enemy. When the cowards fire missiles into civilian houses, or shops , or villages, surely there are civilians killed.
        In Falluja they told the civilians to evacuate, before using gas, but how can the elders and the children not self sufficient, or the wounded escape ? I would be able to run away, but not evryone.

Also I read it most everyday, and your faith should not be a secret but should be shouted out to the world, for that is the reason Jesus sent out His disciples and why Paul went out to all the nations to preach the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

This will occur after the rapture of the church when you Muslims will believe that your god Allah has given you victory over the Christians because it would seem that their all dead, but their spirits will rise up with Jesus' Holy Spirit and all will be given new bodies. The extremist Islamic Muslims will rule under strict sharia law during the great tribulation, but in the end you shall be defeated by the power of God!
