The Islamic Jihad is eternal until the whole world is Muslim. This is the stated goal of Islam and Islamic imperialism ever since Muhammad trod the earth
How hard is this to figure out? Muslims have oil otherwise we would consider them as stupid as the Indian tribes that Christopher Columbus met on Hispaniola
Cue the photo of Cheney with the wide brim hat giving the death stare to Obama. GWB was in the photo also and I believe it was taken in one of the Congressional Houses.
How sad. Qaddafi didn’t live to read Condi’s memoirs.
I read one of his books. He is one of the good guys and is not anti-Israel so I like him. He knows from personal experience how low down low the Muzzies can go to get their Islamic rocks off
