WOW !! Doesn't take long to make news from a poll that shows 10% losers while 90% have no interest!
There are probably the same number of Democrats in this country that believe the same thing.
"11%? That's quite a lot of psychopath nutcases on that island. I won't be visiting Indonesia any time soon. "
That's what they want - to get the Westerners out and kill anybody who associates with us.
11% of the Indonesian population needs to be targeted for extermination as our winged friends who have acquired the Bird Flu have been for the betterment of human existence.
Yea, but that is just a political issue. ; )
And they still support the troops.....
Yeah, and 11% of 220 million is about 24 million.
But we have to remember, it's "only a few!"
I suppose that "few" is relative, eh!
About 15% of Americans support the bombings...
As is the problem with Islam worldwide elsewhere, just how do you propose isolating and "dealing with" those 11%, or about 24 million muslims?
How do you identify them?
But of course, there's no problem. No, that's racist or whatever it is.
I doubt 11% support it enough to strap on a bomb and blow themselves up. The percentage who would do that is the only important number.
Religion of peace my arse BUMP!
Jakarta is the capital city The territory of the Republic of Indonesia stretches from 6º 08' north latitude to 11º 15' south latitude, and from 94º 45' to 141º 05' east longitude. The Indonesian sea area is four times greater than its land area, which is about 1.9 million sq. km. The sea area is about 7.9 million sq. km (including an exclusive economic zone) and constitutes about 81% of the total area of the country.
Indonesia has about 500 tribes and correspondingly, it has about 500 languages and dialects spoken in the archipelago. The population in Indonesia has now reach the fourth most populated country in the world after China, India, and the United States of America. In 2000, population of Indonesia is 206,264,595.
206264595 X .11 = 22,689,105.45 Indonesians support HOMICIDE bombings. Really a pretty small number. END SARCASM! You have to wonder what fool wrote this article.
I have the number at 22 million nuts calculated for Indonesia alone.
OK. So I guess then that this 11% similarly believes that it is acceptable for The US military to target civilian terrorist sympathizers. Good to know!
I think Neutron Bomb atttacks against people that believe its all right to murder innocent civilians should be used and often. Thats the only way to eliminate that contagion from the earth. A good place to start is in Palestine.
