i'm not part of the al qaeda fanclub or anything...i just think it is interesting that some of these well to do muslims are willing to leave a life of luxury and influence to live in a cave and fight a holy war. it doesn't quite gel with the whole 'cynical manipulators just using dumb virgin hunters for power' narrative.

But you can be killed in the West because there are plenty of fanatical Muslims here too. I think I pointed out the Theo Van Gogh murder earlier. So, if you're educated and wealthy and have no conscience, there is one other thing you can do--stay there and manipulate the superstitious idiots around you and get them to do your bidding. You can rule hell to avoid having to serve in heaven.

I don't think you're getting the picture. That area is ruled by warlords. If you are wealthy and have influence, you need to assemble an army and commit atrocities to show everyone you mean business. You're like Tony Montana in "Scarface." If you don't do this, someone is going to take your wealth and either make you his lapdog or have you eliminated. It's not that you are willing to fight against "oppressors" and all this noble stuff, it's that you MUST show every other warlord around you that you are not to be f-ucked with. By taking on America, you are showing them you have balls and also making yourself into a folk hero. There's nothing noble in what they are doing. They are simply gangsters getting and holding onto their piece of the action. And they have the exact same mentality of gangsters--ruthless psychopaths. And yes they are cynical manipulators and damned good at it.

which area specifically are you speaking of? osama bin laden is from saudi arabia, as are many others. ayman al zawahiri is from egypt, as are many others. they traveled to afghanistan to live the warlord life. i',m not going to say there's no validity to what you're saying because my knowledge is honestly limited. but i have to ask: do you doubt the sincerity of their belief in and dedication to creating an islamic caliphate?

i agree with you that they are not noble. like i said i'm not a fan or anything. i just think our image of these people is often completely warped around preconceived notions that don't necessarily hold true.

Who would kill for a rape? I thought that was a part of the process.

Oh, sorry DWV. TRIGGER WARNING

it doesn't make sense but it would still be fun to make you post that

because it could be interpreted in a number of ways

maybe you are fiending to rape 72 whites?

or maybe you are trying to start a race war because 72 whites were raped?

the possibilities are endless

Kinda sounds like you just listed all the possibilities.
