That incident where he drove the pedlers out of the temple was not a display of universal love and acceptance.
You say Pedlars, I say Money Lenders (i.e. evil parasites who prey on the poor and dumb).

RE: Why do the minorty thinks the majority is wrong

Debate all you want. The majority still rules, thank GOD! Kerry lost for the simple reason that he wasn't credible. Bush was. Under close scrutiny, Kerry actually stood for nothing. As far as the Bible goes, I believe one of the core messages is - Help your weaker brothers, as we are in Iraq, against Saddam. We did not "invade" Iraq. The majority hated and feared Saddam. The U.S. help was welcomed by the overwhelming majority in Iraq, in the overthrow of Saddam. They, for the first time had a free election, with many more to come, hopefully. Once on their feet, the U.S. will leave, as planned. Look at history. The U.S. has fought against many dictators, Hitler being one. The U.S. does not exist in the world alone. We have always helped our allies. Strength in numbers!

100,000 dead Iraqis would probably have a different take on the subject. Frankly, you sound an arm of the Bush propaganda machine. Lots of cheering, very little truth...

And the 1-3 million executed by the Hussein regime would disagree with them.

RE: Why do the minorty thinks the majority is wrong

I would like to say that at least that blood isn't on our hands, but then that isn't quite true either, is it? Besides, I don't remember GW describing this as a mission of mercy before the invasion. Anything said after the invasion is just a load of bs... To me, it would have made all the difference in the world had someone actually asked for our help.

And now we bump off a few hundred thousand, and the guy before Hussein got his share, etc etc. Wake up, dudes, the reason for all this killing is that killing is what is necessary to keep Iraq together, because its not a country - it is a cobbled together mess, composed of people who hated each other for centuries. When the "democracy" takes over, the majority will start getting their share of dead bodies, ad infinitum. It's stupid calling Hussein "bad" and us "good" when we are trapped in the same cycle of violence Hussein was, and we have handled it no better. Like Hussein, we have our faction in Iraq cheering us on as we slaughter people, just as Hussein had his. Until we are willing to deal with the core problem - just another basket case nation created by Britian in the 1920's, we will never win. Same is true for Sudan and Afghanistan. Look at the states that kicked out these British-imposed boundaries - India and Pakistan, Yugoslavia - at least some semblence of peace has arrived for these people.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

You're right -- that figure is actually pretty old now. I'm sure it's considerably higher now. What do you care? The more dead Muslims the better, right?
