      I take it you missed the story about the US drone killing 8 in Pakistan?
      Can I ask if the US should be above such a genetic slur?

      @zoglet-You should be more concerned with the taliban mentally deficient ones killing all the innocent worshipers in mosques and women and children in market places. Muslims kill more muslims than anyone else. I'll bet that really gets your panties in a bunch.

      Holysmokes- would you be so relaxed about killing people if they were your own?

      I thought that the death sentence would require proof? Or are you so full of hate you wish for death irrespective of evidence of wrong doing? So I repeat my question, how do you know they are even terrorist?

      Yes, you are missing something. You do not want to admit that Islam is the blood thirsty religion notorious for killing the innocent.

      what do you mean. u are the kind of person that i encouraging this, why know the truth but decide to say the fault as no problem, if you are a muslim i think u should think well, " iss that right" and if u are a Nigerian, i am highly disappointed in yo and your ridiculous statement.
