  1. Orthodox Army Still There

    No they didn't, they withdrew because of political pressure of Glasnost and Perestroika, they made 2 million afghans homeless, and killed some 500,000 of them. I think that's a relatively good tally against 20,000 Russian dead, don't you?
  2. Praying On Planes?

    Get real man. Read JihadWatch and other sites for the other side of the opinion.
  3. Praying On Planes?

    When did I say it was best for everything? US and UK have BETTER universities, I got the grades, I pay far more than UK students do. Why should I not come to study? I don't start fights, call people 'infidel' or threaten to blow myself up.
  4. ~ Better The Sultan's Turban Than The Cardinal's Hat ~

    Russ is right, the Doge was to blame, and all those involved were instantly excommunicated, only the most extreme Greeks these days would blame Catholics for 1204. Keep in mind however, that the 'better the sultan's turban than the cardinal's hat' saying is adopted by Orientalists for the wrong purposes, it is not supposed to show the great tolerance of the Ottomans, rather the hopelessness of the situation the Byzantines found themselves in, and for the record. Also Russ, the story of Mehmet granting pardon to the captives in Agia Sophia is not exactly accurate, it's kind of a legend associated with the story of the Ottoman soldier trying to steal the marble. Sphrantzes never talks about it, not does any other primary source I have read. Let us not decieve ourselves, the Ottomans were brutal and sadistic, WORSE than the crusaders in many ways, the Crusaders were drunken louts, they stripped the city of it's material glory for good, they ripped the heart out the empire. The Ottomans were actually genuinely cruel, genuinely evil people, some of the reports of the raping of nuns, impaling of little children, the rape of the Grand Duke's nephew by Mehmet and the subsequent execution of his family in front of him. Really sick stuff. It's up there with Thermopylae though for title of 'Best Last stand ever', as Runciman wrote at the end of his 'Fall of Constantinople': "They remembered that dreadful Tuesday, a day that all true Greeks still know to be of ill omen; but their spirits tingled and their courage rose as they told of the last Christian Emperor standing in the breach, abandoned by his western allies, holding the infidel at bay till their numbers overpowered him and he died, with the Empire as his winding sheet."
  5. Marines Murdered Iraqi

    Look, America is going to have orbital weapons platforms soon, and hypersonic bombers as well. Do you honestly believe you can defeat a force this strong?

    Antony, your name is western, may I ask why you joined Islam? Listen to yourself my friend, you are cheering the Iraqi resistance and the deaths of western troops, open your eyes, do not throw abuse at me, I am only defending my people and my brothers interests. And these people, Serbs, Russians, are my brothers not because of religion entirely, but because we fought battles together and are united. What is your rationale for supporting the Muslims? Ask yourself this question, do you honestly believe stoning someone to death is a just punishment?
  7. Orthodox Army Still There

    In practically every single battle the two sides have fought, the Russians have crushed them comfortably.
  8. Marines Murdered Iraqi

    You people are delusional, America has the power to hit anywhere at anytime, no one has the force projection power they do. I don't agree with them in Iraq, but they have a Military Machine that is unstoppable.
  9. Orthodox Army Still There

    Hopefully you'll be banned. Did you like seeing the dead kids at Beslan? Guess so. Thanks, I'll be passing this on to Russian Police and the FBI, as well as The British Police as well. It's a mopping up job for the Russian Army my friend, they don't have their hands tied like the US do in Iraq, they can do what they want, when they want. You say this, but Grozny doesn't even exist anymore. Russian HAS won, it HAS broken the will of the Chechen people, Basayev's death is irreplacable, his mangled corpse can serve as a reminder to what happens to those who dare to challenge Orthodox Christian Might. Russian blood is soaked in that soil, Russians fought and died to procure it, once Orthodox, always Orthodox, or simply temporarily not Orthodox.
  10. Veil Snatched From Muslim Women

    Is people blowing themselves up on trains a worse action?
  11. Veil Snatched From Muslim Women

    who cares?
  12. Orthodox Army Still There

    The Grand Eastern Christian Orthodox Army of the Russian Federation is still in Chechnya, Muslims may not want to hear it, but they are winning, the Orthodox Army of Russia won 10/12 of the Russo-Turkish Wars :D Russia cannot be defeated, they are a mighty nation indeed! Orthodox greetings to my brothers in Russia!
  13. Muslim Scholar Seeks Debate With The Pope

    If you don't know anything about Naik then maybe that's for the best, he is an incredibly hateful man who challenges many people to a debate. Ali Sina (of faith freedom fame), recently challenged Naik to a debate, Naik has avoided the subject and never talks about Sina, perhaps he saw the drubbing Sina gave to Yamin Zakaria and realized just how good a debater Sina was. Either way, Naik has no right to challenge people to debates considering his own cowardice concerning Sina.
  14. Praying On Planes?

    What is the logic in that reply? A language can either have continuity or it doesn't, one cannot really actively assess or analyze the 'quality' of a language, other than in it's continuity, art is measured by other factors, quality and concept being the two main ones.
  15. Drive-by Shooting At Mosque

    1 failed drive by on a Masjid... compared to....... how many muslim attacks on churches in Arabia, Asia, North Africa?
