    The Power of Hatred
    By Ralph Kinney Bennett for Tech Central Station
    06/28/2005

    The Islamoterrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan have shown a resilience that some have found surprising. They have learned fast and learned much - about how to build more effective roadside bombs, for instance, and about the futility of engaging American forces directly in firefights. They have shown an ugly ruthlessness about spilling Muslim blood.

    They have demonstrated an extraordinary ability or extraordinary luck in preserving their leadership, sometimes with hairbreadth escapes. And, although they may be scraping a barrel or two while husbanding their "finest" for later operations, they have thus far produced enough recruits (some with their hands taped to steering wheels) to continue their fight despite heavy losses.

    Give them credit where credit is due. And credit them, too, for shedding light on a dark reality many Americans would prefer to ignore - the power of hatred.

    It is fashionable to praise the power of an uplifting idea, but it makes us uncomfortable to admit the power of festering hatred. Yet it is pure hatred that is abroad and alive in the bomb-laden cars that ply the streets and roads of Iraq and in the calculated fury that leaves children dismembered in a market place and young policemen executed with their hands tied behind their backs.

    All the efforts to comb the Koran and extol the virtues and ideals of "mainstream" Islam will not camouflage nor expiate the murderous hatred of the Islamofanatics at work in Iraq and around the globe.

    All good points. But don't forget that the people that we are trying to liberate (in Iraq and in Afganistan) are muslims too.

    Liberals are some of the best practitioners of the fine art of hatred...just ask any one of them about the current administration to get a first hand example!

    Ask a conservative about his thoughts on the Clinton administration, and you will get the same thing.

    True enough in some cases, yet I haven't seen the same vehemence regarding Clinton that I see applied towards the current President.

    Clinton was an idiot, but he didn't send 1,700 American soldiers to their deaths in a war of hatred.

    Clinton was bad but if you cant see what bush is doing to this nation you must be wearing blinders. I see more hatred on the conservative side than the liberal side but I bet all muslims are laughing at all the hatred within the US period.

    Bush will eventually get more of our soldiers killed than saddam ever dreamed of but saddam was the bad gfuy right?

    War of hatred? Man, each day your ignorance shines through.

    No, but he did let 18 Rangers get killed in Somalia because he REFUSED to send them the armour the soldiers on the ground requested. They begged his administration to send them tanks and Bradleys and he refused and therefore, 18 Rangers were killed and over 90 injured in an operation they had no business partaking in. I suggest you read the book "Blackhawk Down".

    I have a feeling you and Gab are one in the same.

    But to reply to you, you are and idiot too. Hatred from the Conservatives? LMFAO!

    Please tell me, what is Bush doing to this country other than defending it as he, as Commander in Chief, took an oath to do? Grow up.

    :laugh: Oh well, unless there's a reason to be suspicious, we'll let 'em play. Probably some friends. We just had 'goat boy' now 'CA whatever...'

    Free, you are using too much logic regarding CIC, this is all about 'feelings' and group hugs and 'Why do they hate us????'
