And now, the real trouble starts

I'll have to admit - from what I see of Tripoli in the news footage, it's a long ways from what it was when I was there in the 50's.

Everybody's jubilant, and talking about "Democracy" ... yeah, right.

What we're seeing is the preliminary to the Moslem Brotherhood taking over the entire Middle East - and their introduction of their beloved Caliphate.

Hold on to your butts - you haven't BEGUN to see strife and bloodshed yet.

          The Cherokee nation was neither white nor English-speaking - and we had a democratic system that lasted several hundreds of years. And, we were a matriarchy . . .

            fire and the group yelling loudest makes a modern democracy ! anyway, thats a very small population...like the greek city state athens. its not a large scale democracy.

          fundamentalists, the muslim brotherhood is leading by 70% in egyptian opinion polls.

            All of non-Moslem civilization is going to be engulfed by the coming caliphate. They pretty much did that once before - and never surrendered from THAT declaration of war, either. They were stopped... more

              Makes for a good movie though. Only extremists believe in the coming caliphate.
              • You just named the problem.Lewis, Wed Jan 18 9:11am
                "Only extremists believe in the coming caliphate." Precisely. And, those extremists are in charge, and are our adversaries . . . Most people in the Western World don't even know what a "caliphate"... more

                All of the nations of the world are infested with Islam - even the remains of the old USSR. Large parts of Communist China are Moslem (have been, for centuries). The governments of the non-Islamic... more

                  Telling over ONE BILLION Moslems (almost all of whom are peaceful) that they are an infestation and a threat to the world serves nothing but endorses the very propaganda the extremists use to recruit ... more
                  • "Bigotry"?Lewis, Wed Jan 18 9:06am
                    Is that why we have allies of the same religion? Counting dead bodies when an embassy has been blown to hell, or an airliner blown out of the air, is hardly "bigotry".
                    • Just responding to what you wroteMike, Thu Jan 19 11:55pm
                      "All of the nations of the world are infested with Islam" That's bigotry, plain and simple. Islam is not the problem, terrorists are. Islam didn't blow up a single embassy or an airliner any more... more
                • so why dont you like a CALIPH ?matthew, Fri Nov 18 1:26pm
                  maybe a GRAND MUFTI or WALI or VIZIER or MAHDI or other sexier title may be better....?
                  • You can do better than thatLewis, Sun Nov 20 2:19pm
                    Of course the title makes no difference. By any name, it will be an Islamic theocracy. That would be anathema to be as a Christian, and as a citizen of a constitutional, representative republic.
