Don't have any issues with what you say here Slim - and I don't think we are on opposing views. We are in the position of saying "stop shooting at us/each other and we will go away" What happens then is anyone's guess although I think you are unfortunately near the mark. The original point I was trying to make was over the use of the word 'vain'. Our presence has made a positive difference to a significant portion of the population. Your comment about the price paid for the positive and its continued affordability hits the nail on the head.slim said:Sorry SF but I am of the opinion that whatever we do and however long we stay civil war is inevitable. It is against the Koran to take the life of another Muslim, this is happenning daily. It is not going to change. For one I do not wish to see any more reported deaths or injuries to British servicemen. The sooner we pull out and let the Muslim population sort out their own problems the better. The money we are spending on this war would be better spent on finding cheap non fossil fuel alternatives for our energy needs.
Is it sickening ? Iraqi's are killing Iraqi's, the British soldier is piggy in the middle. He is there to keep the peace not to be a target for groups who are settling old scores. This is being carried out in the name of Islam.F169 said:
They are being killed for power, religion is merely the window dressing, just as it was in Ireland and many other places. The killers know they cannot win power through the ballot box so they kill and terrorise, to frighten people into giving them power in return for peace.slim said:Is it sickening ?
