    And, let's not forget the Shia leaders, our government helped install, in Iraq which are already forging ties with the Shia clerics in Iran. Gee...Thanks Chimpy!

    And, of course, there is the Taliban which is making a resurgence in Afghanistan, imposing Shariat law wherever they go. Had Chimpy and Co. not gone haring off into the quagmire of Iraq, Afghanistan might have had a shot at becoming a stable democracy in the region. Gee...Thanks Chimpy!

    Looks like they just took the capital city though. Somaliland and Puntland, two provinces in the north with de facto independence, still maintain total control over those areas. It's a military victory for the Islamists, but they don't control the country.

    In a word, NO.

    You DO have a hard time connecting the dots Psycho. Christianity HASN'T failed, far from it. Islam has failed, and they are making one last desperate attempt to pull the rest of the world into their "hell on Earth". Seems they've been successful with YOU ,and a few others.

    Hope you enjoy the "burn"..............:blues:
