Boston: Punitive damages of war

The recent bombing in Boston is a reminder to all of us  of what goes on in the minds of our enemies lurking deep in the shadows of revenge. It should also serve as a reminder that we are still victims in a war against the Muslims. And, thanks to H.W Bush and G.W. Bush, the war will never end.

Unlike the Japanese, Germans, Vietnamese or North Koreans who never used their loses in war as an excuse for revenge on our streets, the Muslims with Koran in one hand and bombs in the other, will always seek revenge for our support of the Jews, betrayal of Palestinians and our invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. We should have known Muslims will forever attempt to revenge the murder of thousands of defenseless men, women and children listed as collateral damage we killed in our attempt to protect our oil interest in the Mid-East.

In 1990,  Saddam Hussein accused his neighbor to the south, Kuwait, of siphoning off Iraqi oil by using slant drilling techniques. Kuwait was overproducing oil for the United States forcing the price of oil to fall. Hussein needed high priced oil to pay back $80 billion he borrowed to pay for the war with his neighbor to the east, Iraq. After a two day battle with Kuwait troops, Hussein proclaimed victory and announced Kuwait was the 19 province of Iraq.

President G.H. Bush sent his Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney to Saudi Arabia to meet with King Fahd and other oil producing countries for strategy sessions. Bush then led the Allied forces into battle, regained Kuwait and forced Iraqi troops to retreat. After 100 hours of fighting, Bush made the decision to end the battle.

His military advisers, including VP Dick Cheney, advised Bush to push Hussein’s army back to Baghdad and remove him from power. Bush said he didn’t give the order because it “incurred incalculable human and political cost....We would have been forced to occupy Baghdad and, in effect, rule Iraq.” Cheney strongly disagreed with the presidents decision. Ten years later he would get his own revenge.

In 1995, Cheney was hired as CEO of Halliburton, a giant oil-services and infrastructure corporation. He was also an advisor to G.W. Bush in the selection of a Vice Presidential candidate in 1999. Claiming there were no viable candidates, Cheney volunteered to be Bush’s VP. After winning the election, G.W. Bush did what his father wouldn’t do-with advise from Dick Cheney, he invaded Iraq under a false pretense in 2003. Ironically, Halliburton was given $39.5 billion in Iraq-related government contracts. Sadly, the American people and Muslims were given the proverbial shaft.

Realistically, we can’t invade a theocratic regime and not expect terrorist attacks within our borders. Japan was a theocratic Shinto/Buddhist state. Emperor Hirohito was worshiped as a God as well as leader of his country. The difference is, Japan attacked us and Buddhist do not seek revenge.

G.W. Bush should have listened to his father instead of doing Cheney‘s dirty work. At least his father knew that war does not begin without consequences and doesn’t end with impunity for either side.

Muslims have been attacking Americans since 1784. They demanded we pay tribute to islam because they were muslims, and we weren't.



In 1795, Algeria came to an agreement with the U.S. that resulted in the release of 115 sailors they held, at the cost of over $1 million. This amount totaled about 1⁄6 of the entire U.S. budget, and was demanded as tribute (extortion) by the Barbary States to prevent further piracy. The continuing demand for tribute ultimately led to the formation of the United States Department of the Navy, founded in 1798 in order to prevent further piracy attacks upon American shipping as well as to end the extremely large demand for tribute from the Barbary States.

In March 1785, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went to London to negotiate with Tripoli's envoy, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman (or Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja). Upon inquiring "concerning the ground of the pretensions to make war upon nations (U.S.A.) who had done them no injury", the ambassador replied:

It was written in their Koran, that all nations which had not acknowledged the Prophet were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every mussulman (muslim) who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy's ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once.


You really should get your head on straight about islam. They have been trying for 1300 years to conquer the entire planet for islam. The fighting between islam, and America was started by muslims approximately 228 years ago.

Mr. Farside, you really aught to read some world history, then you would see that long before Usama bin Laden, and Al Queda came along islam conquered parts of north Africa, Corsica, and Spain. It took Spain from 709 to 1614 to free themselves from muslim rule. And as recently as 11 March 2004 muslims bombed the Madrid train system.

The western nations are under attack from islam, and people like you who have no sense of history, and no knowledge of islam, keep blaming America for an invasion of the west by islam that has been their modus operandi for over a millennia.

Read a history book sometime. You might just learn something besides the leftist drivel that the appeasers of islam, who are called dhimmis by the muslims, don't want to admit - islam is trying to conquer all nations for allah, and they will kill everybody who resists. Unless we wake up, and fight back.

The neighbor to the east that Saddam attacked was Iran, not Iraq.

Get a simple fact like that wrong and it makes one wonder about the more complicated "facts."
