Another Muslim nut-job murders American troopers

Something is happening to me.  It is not something I like, but it appears to be a walk down that long, long gravel road.  I am developing (inculcating) a dislike for Muslims.  I don’t like me for that.  I hope I get over it.  If I don’t please include me in your thoughts.  Here is yet another story of an Islamic murderer killing those who may have killed but probably not.  On this day families are crying at the dying.  So am I.  Help me here by telling me what you think:

An Iraqi soldier fired a barrage of bullets at American troops protecting one of their commanders during a visit to an Iraqi army base today and killed two of them—the first US servicemen to die since President Obama declared an end to combat operations. Nine Americans were wounded. The Americans were providing security for a commander attending a meeting with Iraqi military personnel at a base near the city of Tuz Khormato, about 130 miles north of Baghdad.

The assailant opened fire after an argument and was killed in the shootout that followed, said the city’s police chief. He did not provide details on the nature of the argument. At least 4,418 US military personnel have been killed in Iraq since the war began in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count.

    Ah- well I hate the Muslim ideology, hate the extremists, hate the persecution of women and children by those societies- and especially anything Shar’ia. I also hate the Catholic doctrines against birth control, divorce, and abortion; their institutionalized pedophilia, hypocrisy, and money laundering.

    I particularly loathe the obnoxious grift and duplicity of protestant evangelicals in this country, and their refusal to allow women into positions of power.

    The Jewish practice of circumcision is equivalent to genital mutilation in my book, and therefore repugnant and deserving of ridicule. Their nation is obnoxious for its political influence and terrorism against its neighbor, made more so by our own country’s ignoring the fact.

    African superstition and witch-doctoring tarted-up with a Christian veneer makes me physically ill, given the results it has for the children, albinos, and marginalized society members there.

    So while I think there is a bit of knee-jerk hatred going on in your head (because as a former member of the military you have particular identification with that group) when troops are killed, I am no different in my reactions when women and children are ill-treated. I suspect that Oso harbors distaste toward any group that ill-treats who he perceives as the “underdog,” as he identifies with the displaced and abused Native population.

    Religion sucks, and the more powerful the religion is, the more ability to do damage it has. Until society in general reaches a point of rational enlightenment that derives its morals not from a sky daddy but instead from basic humanity and decency, these things will continue to go on.

      Absolutely spot on MH, in every way. Your comment reminds of your old post “Religion Screws Society.”

      All religions are complicit and responsible for a lot of heartache.

      Yea that about sums that up. Unfortunately when one is religiously insane they can’t see how screwed up their ideology is. Many similarities to the tbaggers and in a lot of cases one in the same.
      Thanks!
