Sound familiar?

    bismillah. amad, i think it’s not too late to create an animated gif that lets you gradually morph Goering into and back from Cheney or Rumsfeld… heck, if you’ve got enough time, just take a smattering of neocons and go photoshop on all of them…

    but, the problem is that this thread is already only eye-candy to people who see the connection. for them no photoshop is necessary.

    for people you want to convince… you have to overcome their willful-incredulity. you have to disabuse them of the fact that they have not sent their sons and daughters off to die in a noble cause. rather America has spilled the blood of its own young men and women and that of many of all ages from all over the world, to make money for a few already-rich people, and to prop up the pride of the Bush family.

    the need of those fathers and mothers to believe that their children have died or continue to risk their lives for just causes — that is still is great as ever, and as great as the need to wake them up. i just do not think they will be persuaded by this particular thread…

    true….

    except when it came to the honor of Rome, the people loved WAR…..and loved VICTORY even more…..

    but thats because they weren’t affected much by it

    How very true that quote is! It seems like Islam has a very valid reason for denouncing nationalism and forbidding wars not fought for Allah subhanahu wata’alaa. Alhamdulillah!
