OK either you have a very bad memory or you did not carefully read what I wrote for I did not call you names and I DID explain how America did not start radical Islam. Here it is again. "You know when I was talking about Islam back when they were more forward thinking and advancing between 800 AD to 1100 AD, It ended because of radical Islam and radical Islam has thrived and remained in control ever since. In case your to stupid to realize this happened LONG before the United Stats of America even existed."
Do you see it now. We could not have started it because it started LONG before the new world was even discovered or do you think we went back in time and started bombing them just for the hell of it.
You said, "So because you have an extensive knowledge of the Islamic world you could perhaps tell me how the current regime in Iran came into power? (i'll give you a hint. it was a response to american imperialism)" Again your looking at this from to much of a simplistic way (Americans are the bad guys). The Revaluation would have happened with or with out American influences. Its kind of like the revolution in Egypt. They kick out there old leader because he was a tyrant and then replaced him with a democratic government that had no real power. The Real power went to there religious leader who made there country into a theocracy and turned out to be just as much if not more of a tyrant as the previous leader.
Now this is where the United States gets involved. Iran's previous leader asked us for a asylum and medical aid for he was dying so we let him into our country. This angered the Iranian revolutionary's. They wanted to kill him and parade his body in the streets. Even though he gave up his power. So that's when they attacked the American embassy and took people hostage. Now if America is pure evil as you claim then we would have just said fuck the hostages, lets bomb and level all the city's of Iran to the ground as an example that you don't fuck think America. But we didn't.
You said, "Look i'm not saying radical Islam are the good guys but when it comes to radicalism it doesn't just get popular for no reason. people run to radicalism as a response to great outside threats." It sure seems like your trying to portray them as the good guys. You even refereed to the United States as being pure evil, bombing helpless Muslims who did absolutely nothing wrong. Radicalism does not only start up from outside treats. Watch the video I posted. In it there is a religious guy that preached an extremist form of Islam and his ideology spread through out the Muslim world.
You said, "What exactly is happening in Mali? i would sincerely like to hear your version of events." Well what happened is Mali is a secular state but Muslim extremists invaded Mali trying to force there version of Islam on them. They also murdered, and destroyed historical documents some of which goes back a thousand years. Then the French came in and liberated Mali. In fact yesterday I watch the news on it and it showed the people of Mali cheering in joy and hugging the French solders for liberating them.
Now let me guess what your make believe version is. Its probably something like. The glorious Islamic freedom fighters went into Mali to liberate them from the influence of the evil western infidels. But just as they were making head way the evil french infidels forced the glorious freedom fighters out. Alas Mali is forced to continue to live the tyranny of Secularism and self government.
Finally I would like to point out that if the United States was even half as evil as you claim then the middle east would already be wiped out long ago.
