The guy has a lot more talent than any other idol I’ve observed. He places inside a 100% effort into all his performances unlike Kris.

Did some Americans not lynch black men through out the South just for being where blacks were not allowed? Do some of our local Christian religious leaders not preach to remove the infidel from our land? Isn’t it our Congress who blocked trying Muslim terror suspects on U.S.Territory? Many of whom were convicted by liars put on the witness stand by the same team of Federal Prosecutors who did the very same to the late Senator Stevens. Senator Stevens had his conviction overturned and 12 convicted Guantanamo detainees won new trials because of said misconduct. In my state such offenses carry up to a five year prison term. We should not judge a billion people because of the actions of some mobs.

Sorry but the headlines every day say otherwise. Americans do not have an innate desire to hate Islam. But we see hatred preached by its Immams, and its foot soldiers come from Mosques and Madrasses.

When muslims are angered by cartoons, they march in the streets by the thousands, when inncocents are bombed in train stations in muslim and western countries, the same streets are silent. Islam is being judge by its actions, or lack there of.

The truth is Islam is never against independent religious freedom .

You put play and Holocaust in the same sentence and apparently agree that al Queda is just our chickens coming home to roost. But my realistic view of world events was formed on the ground, not on this or any other screen. Bashing (as you call it) is needed when riduculous statements are thrown out as answers. Please re-read those statements and tell me which you know to be right instead of wish.

I can tell you had good intentions when you requested my answer(s) for the problem(s) at hand. So try to wrap your head around this. Let’s bring all foreign troops, material, and resources home to America. Then get on FaceBook and express our deepest regrets for imposing ourselves on the unsuspecting world. Then clear our schedule for the next couple of days as the “world” comes begging to let bygones be bygones. I personally am tired of traveling the world with a target on my back-just for trying to help. Yes, there are lieing, cheating, thieving scum Eisenhower first refered to as the Military Industrialists. Take them out back and shoot’em. But don’t tell me and those I served with that US equals al Queda or FARC or Tamil Tigers or Red Army or Baader-Meinhof or PKK or my extremely personal favorites -Dev Sol. Thanks for the nightmares boys, I’m waking up and swimming home.

The Iranian revolution of 1979 was largely driven by young, well-shaven, secular, well-educated middle class city dwellers. Yet in the end the power fell into the hands of old bearded ayatollahs whose power base are uneducated rural poor.
Most of Tahrir crowd cared about democracy and economy, not religion. But come the elections, the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) is the only organized political force, not counting current ruling party and official lap dog opposition who are totally discredited. And if Egypt buys MB, they’ll get al-Qaeda free.
After all, Hitler came to power in 1933 in a perfectly legal and democratic way. Need I remind what happened next?

I hope you are right about the future of Egypt and the Arabs, but I fear you are wrong. While most citizens of Egypt are peaceful, freedom loving people, the same can be said about Iran and Turkey.

While Iran continues to languish in self imposed quarantine, and chooses to reject offers of friendship from credible, multicultural friends like India, Turkey seems to be bent on undoing 50 years of amazing progress and slipping back into extremism.

As an Indian Zoroastrian who has lived in and seen a large part of the ME, I may be biased.

Instead of bashing his ideas, do you have a better solution?

Thanks for calling BS on the absusidty of OCTheo’s oddball rant in the context of this article. I was beignning to fear that it was I who had lost my mind and that OC and the “loons” were the new voice of sanity and reason.

How can it be said without a snicker that all that the US sends is weapons? Ridiculous!

Check out the red, white, and blue bundles of food, medicine and CASH floating all around the ME. I’m against most of it because of the widespread corruption. But to say weapons is it is more than inaccurate. It’s misleading.

OC, you imply that without the US there would be no al Queda. So I’m guessing that without Hebrews in Germany we would have never heard of Hitler. You sound like my 3rd grade teacher who chastised me for running in the hallway to get away from the evil villains chasing me. She said stop running and they can’t chase you. We all know how that turns out. Appeasement starts wars, whether in Austria or Kuwait.

So let’s get the Hebrews to move to Miami when the Cuban embargo is lifted. And let Chavez invade Columbia to finally rid ourselves of cocaine. Don’t forget to hand out the red, white, and blue tasers to the Quds Force quelling the Facebook terrorists in the streets of Tehran. Maybe you can talk Korea into a Rodney King reality show. “Can’t we all just get along?!” gimme a break
