When the US hands over power to the Iraqi people do you think that the Islamic Fundamentalists will be in a stronger position than they were under Saddam Hussein?

One word:
AFGHANISTAN
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 5/18/04 - 1:56:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
How about expounding on that "Afghanistan" answer with a few words?
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 5/18/04 - 1:59:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
How about no. It speaks for itself.

But since, you're a simpleton and cannot derrive from the country's name the story, I'll share:

Afghanistan wasn't always ruled by the Taliban. Shocker, I know. Seems to me somebody helped the Afghanis overthrow the russians and then that somebody left. The Taliban took over and look what happened then. They may be gone now, but it is still an example.

I'm still waiting for a good "example." Your answer doesn't "speak for itself." You also generalized without saying much of anything in your second post. Iraq and Afghanistan, in the context of this question, have few things in common (if anything). Afghanistan didn't have a cruel, sadistic ruler who'd execute anyone on a whim. Secondly, despite Afghanistan being nowhere near where it needs to be in terms of equal rights, the overall environment is much better for women who can actually go to universities now as opposed to not being able to go under the Taliban. The Islamic fundamentalist are nowhere near as prevalent now than they were BEFORE the United States went into Afghanistan. Now, no more XBox for you, young man, seeing as how you call me a simpleton yet have horrendous spelling and grammatical skills. Ye gods I hate a teen who gets defensive for no reason at all. Oh, and no more Spongebob for a week.

In a very twisted way, it could be said that Saddam was keeping them under control. Now that their feared oppressor is gone, all hell is breaking loose.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 5/18/04 - 2:26:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
Pssssst, dumbass... I'm an ALTER. Jesus. I'm neither a boy nor a teenager. Nor am I from Asia. Shocking ain't it? Lies on the internet? Noooooooo.

No, Afghanistan didn't have a single cruel sadistic ruler, they had several in the form of the Taliban.
"The Islamic fundamentalist are nowhere near as prevalent now than they were BEFORE the United States went into Afghanistan. "
This time yes. The first time when the US helped the afghanis, no.

The environment is better for women NOW but before the US went in this time, it was not.

People were executed on whims under the taliban, or have you forgotten that?

My point was more that the US helped the afghan people, left, the taliban took over. That's the example.

Is it bad now? No, because we cleaned up our puddle.

No back off before Bucky Katt whips out the razor claws on ye.

And, BTW, dogtags, Spongebob is the devil.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 5/18/04 - 2:27:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, American was clearing up it's own mess in Afghanistan.

I adore you Kaneda.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 5/18/04 - 2:32:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
Now I'm wondering who you really are....
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 5/18/04 - 2:35:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hahahahaha. You'll never figure this one out. I'm having a Bucky Katt kind of day.

I take it back, you might figure it out...... I've left clues, inadvertently of course.

18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 5/18/04 - 2:41:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
So tell me...what the hell was so hard about saying what you did to begin with? I just asked you to expound and you had to immerse yourself in you alter with the BS. Now, back to the question and answers...you made some good points. My point about executions is that the majority of Taliban-imposed executions had to do with infractions of Islamic code, not just whims like Hussein. The Taliban are gone, so fundamentalist-oriented executions are pretty much out the window. Changing topics a bit, I do have to admit in all honesty that if you're a grown man using a teenaged alter, it's a tad bit creepy. Oh, any my answer to the posted question here is "most likely yes." Alright...no Most Extreme Elimination competition on Spike for you.

"Interests: Cats / Cats / Cats / Cats / Nudism"

I know I've seen that before.

18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 5/18/04 - 2:49:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
hey, cats are inherintly nudists. God, I know I spelled that wrong.

Dogtags, it's called messing with people. You might try it sometime.

18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 5/18/04 - 2:50:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
On the age thing Dogtags, Bucky Katt is a felin, approximately 2 years old in human years. that's about 14 years old in human years. Get the joke?

Work with me.

Ok kids, Recess is over. LOL


ANYWAY!! Yes, I very much believe its gonna turn into an islamic fundamentalist country. When Husien was in charge, he put a very big net around the islamic people. Especialy the sheites (I probably spelled that wrong). The Sunni's were Sadams chosen people, however, Husien for the most part ran a secular (ie non religious) government. An evil government, but secular non the less. Now that he's gone, you can bet your Bibles, Torahs and Korans that the Islamic Fundamentalist will be right there to try a take over. It happened in 1979 with the revolution and overthrow of the Shaw of Iran, who wanted to westernize Iran. The Ayotolah took over and sinced then its been a fundi government. That was the begining of the third Jihad (arabic for holy war). The one that is now being run by Osama Bin Ladin. And you thought all this started by 911. By the way, this war in Iraq has nothing to do with our War on Terror and Iraq had nothing to do with 911

lol Now I know why I don't like cats. I should be shot for not picking up on the implied meaning behind THE Bucky Katt. Now that recess is over I think I'll go smoke a cigarette in the bathroom.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 5/19/04 - 6:35:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I think they will have a much harder time than you think.

The fundementalists can;t really attack the goverment without attacking other muslims. Not good...And hard to report. Plus, It's not like the United states is leaving Entireley, We will have a sizable military force there...We just won;t be the governing body. So essentialy, The Fundementalists have their Teeth Pulled.

18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 5/19/04 - 6:52:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
The polls I've seen of the Iraqi people seem to indicate that they want a secular government, even the Shiites.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 5/19/04 - 7:18:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
I suspect that other Muslims might not be overly keen to be seen to be attacking Fundamentalist Islam.

For the future government to achieve any kind of universal representation they will have to be seen to be listening and representing all factions, including the crazed crusaders.

18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 5/19/04 - 8:13:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
Hopefully they don't equate 'representing all factions' with representing crazed crusaders.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 5/19/04 - 10:17:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
Huzawhutzin? Sure..I dunno.
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 5/25/04 - 5:53:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
not necessarily.
Although i admit there was more of a chance before all the revelations of abuse of prisoners.
Although people are annoyed and angry I think Iraq has enough sensible people around that don't want to end up under some kind of oppressive regime again-religious or not!!!
The media likes to portray situations in an over dramatic way as usual (sells more copies, attracts more viewers)we shouldn't fall for that. I believe in the sensible + human dimension of iranian people
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 5/25/04 - 5:54:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
sorry i meant iraqi people- seems I might be sensible and human but not too smart, unfortunately!!!
