    God forbid I make sweeping generalizations about one type of people based solely on ignorant stereotypes.

    meh. they've been fighting in the Balkans and in the Middle East for centuries with no real letup. Something has to be different about these people that makes them want to kill each other so much... so in general, nuke 'em all and let Allah sort them out.

    how much did we fight each other here in Europe? Europe´s history is quite bloddy (this was before you even had a history)

    Yes, European history has been quit bloody, but it has been between changing groups of people, so that no one racial or religious group has had time to form a serious vendetta against another (The French vs. the huguenots? Romans vs. Saxons? that was over fast, historically speaking)

    What I'm saying is that the middle east has been continuous fighting between Muslim, Jewish, and Christian interests, for over 1400 years now. The same three groups, attacking each other until they have nothing but unconditional hate for the others. No other area in history has been so fiercely contested for so long as the Middle East. It's a downward spiral, and it's not going to end as long as religion is involved. SO: get rid of any leaders with religious connections, replace them with secular ones, and move on. Any fundamentalists with in the population will be stamped out by the new regime.

    Problem solved.

    Two things:
    1. it was a religious war
    2. All the fighting happened over there.

    It was payback since they had come into the rest of the Europe to conquer. Major groups take turns kicking eachother's ass.

    except the middle east, where nobody wins on a routine basis, people just keep dying and hating the other groups more.

    Conclusion? whether your religion is the one blessed by God or not, don't tell anyone who thinks otherwise. Keep it inside, or better yet go atheist.

    it's lame because propaganda sucks, not because this war is right or wrong.
