the Salaf HATE the Shia more than they hate us infidels.
"...forces of the jihad will infiltrate governments and the military as a prelude to taking control, once the secular leadership is ousted or assassinated. Such was the case in Lebanon leading to the Syrian occupation."
So the jihadists WANTED Hafez Assad to run the country, because he was NOT a secularist? He's a friggin' Alawite- they wnat to kill him too. What a crock.
Because I want to know.
Why do you want to know?
Why do you believe that I owe you an explanation?
Add to that getting China and/or Russia and/or Iran to provide a greater nuclear umbrella and implied threat.
You are right and they are wrong
The big difference being that the Islamic War and Conquest Manual (Koran) puts that in print while the Bible doesn't...
Until Islamic clerics convene a council and remove or modifies the passages that encourage this the religeon is suspect, as are the followers...
The history books teaches the children that the golen age of Caliphate was during HAROON EL RASHEED!
If you ever watch animal shows that shows how the male walrus holds on hundreds of female walrus on the beach, by constant fighting. He guards his perimeters, and wards off any male intruders, and prevents his female "bitches" from running away. This is a good picture that illustrates how Moslem men are fighting so hard to hold on this antiquated barbaric religion, which gives them sexual privileges over their bitches. Caliphate or not Caliphate is just too confusing for the regular American person. The walrus picture is worth a thousand words.
Anyone who sets themselves up as an authority on Islamic affairs and does not know the difference between Wahhabi and Shia muslims is plainly clueless.
Have you never started to read something and then come across a comment so ill-informed as to undermine the credibility of the entire piece? Well that was why I stopped reading this piece.
Come on then O he of superior understanding and address the point I made that someone who does not know the difference between a Wahhabi and Shia Muslim is probably, how shall we say, unreliable. And clueless.

My thoughts perzackly. (see #50)
Alright, I'll re-phrase -- given our already-existing commitments, I don't think we can afford a massive permanent presence in Iraq when we're running $500 billion dollar deficits.
I could be wrong, but I think it'll cause a serious budget crisis if we attempt to stay (to say nothing of the ongoing casualties).
That being said, I don't trust any of these Islamic fundamentalists as far as can spit, and I wouldn't be surprsied to find them making common cause against us as we happen to represent all the decadence of modernity, in addition to favoring Isreal's right to exist. We live in interesting times.
I believe the author's error was mainly that he failed to make clear that this sort of fundamentalism has infected the many branches of Islam.
Nearly all Wahabbis are Shiites, but not all Shiites are Wahabbis.
There are basically two types of Muslims: Shiites and Sunnis. Wahabism is the brand of Islam practiced by the House of Saud, and consequently by all Saudis, Wahabbism is also what's come to be known as "fundamentalism", and the driving force behind 99.99% of the world's Islamic terrorism.
Wahabbism is to Islam what Seventh Day Adventist is to Christianity.
And that's what YOU need to understand.
We're never leaving Iraq.
>>Nearly all Wahabbis are Shiites,
Uh, Luis, Wahhabs are Sunnis, all of them. Shia is anathema to Wahhabs, they even call it a Jewish cult.
Sounds like you should be working for the CPA in Baghdad if you're prone to these errors! :>>
The real evil isn't on the outside--its within. We are being corrupted by the Hippie/Drug cult of the left. In this world view Amerika is always evil. There is no morality, If it feels good do it, Its hip to be a rebel. Sex, Drugs and rock an' roll are the best things on earth.
The Islamic Radicals need not blow up their children with bombs. Just ship cocain to the us and give it away free. We will do ourselves in. No, America needs to clean itself up on the inside before we can march in this new crusade. The day will come, I am sure, but many will die before then.
Wahabbis are Sunnis, but not all Sunniis are Wabbahis.
Now, back to your point of about the authior being clueless, his point is that Wahabbi-style Islam is spreading even on to the Shiite world.
It's also known as Islamism.
You say that he is clueless...can you refute his statement?
