Discussion in 'Middle East - General' started by Annie, Jul 3, 2007.
Mostly he has it right:
It is a cultural and religious war. Radical Muslims v. the rest of the planet; especially if you are American, Australian, Western European, Israeli, Indian, Russian, or even Chinese. We refuse to recognize this war for what it is. Certainly a global cultural-religious war is unthinkable in the 21st Century, right? It is here. Burkas or death. Radical Islam even preys on itself, e.g., Iraq. Wherever radical Islam comes in contact with another culture, atrocities abound: western China, Chechnya, Moscow, Bali, Kashmir, Iraq, Spain, UK, Canada, America. This war has flared up, but it has been smoldering for centuries.
Agreed. On their part, religious, but on the Western side even atheists are involved.
Hitchens is a pompus ass
That brings much to the table. Thanks for the contribution.
Note about internet and message board ettiquette: When you use an imflammatory title like "Libs Get Nailed", and then post something from a noted drunk, who's been wrong virtually everytime he predicted something about iraq, or the middle east, don't expect elaborate and mature responses.
Personally, I'd be hard pressed to name any person who's been wrong more often on Iraq, and the middle east more broadly, the Christopher Hitchens. It's pretty much a wasted of my time to read him....I don't bother to listen to people who are almost always wrong.
Entitled to your opinion, personal attacks noted, as are the lack of substantive points.
It wasn't much less to bring to the table than you saying "mostly Hitchens has it right".
By the way...I like Hitchens a lot, but this "obvious fact" is merely an assumption he is making.
