Re: Is religion opium for the people?
I apologise if I offended you, Akbar. While I do believe Islam to be a warrior religion, I realize that the majority of Muslims just want to live their lives peacefully, and to be left alone.
The invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were terrible tragedies, with a great loss of life, mostly of innocent civilians. While the invasion of any country is rarely justified, it's always a really bad idea to invade a Muslim country, because they will usually fight back.
I'm not going to answer any of your questions, Akbar, because it will only lead to endless arguements. I've been there and done that on this forum, and it doesn't really lead to anything good. I'm not going to change your mind about anything, and you're not going to change mine.
