    I have more of an issue with what they do to their own people. I mean "death to the us" sure, I can deal with that. But hurting your own nation's people?

    *sigh* its just stupid how people blame w/e but still continue the act.
    Eh, Asia's a bigger threat than the Middle East right now, economic and military wise.

    Potential threat sure. As far as i've seen on asia's history though.....they tend to have overwhelming economic and military power, but hardly use it.

    The conflicts are more internal instead of external, but that threatens world peace.

    Don't get me wrong, Islam is peaceful. America is a country with free religion so I assume this could say this.
    I am Buddhist, I have nothing against any religion, but it seems that every war has been started by the Christians against the Islamic. It is always the Christians who get the attention and media scapegoats blame Islamic people for their faults. If the world could get along and Isreal allow palestine the land it was supposed to be granted by the UN, Iran followed its sanctions and just stopped using nuclear power plants, as it is a country sitting on a fountain of oil. If the US could stop intervening in other countries and focus on internal problems, Islam wouldn't have such a bad image.

    If other countries could stop being hypocrites and basing all americans on a stereotype that they are fat, stupid and unknowing about the world around them, I'm sure as hell I couldn't be any happier. What pisses me off is that all this turmoil, this nuclear war aggression, had to happen in MY generation.

    Honestly, the Islam world hates us for a few reasons.

    1) We intervene in the wrong wars. Iran can build a bomb, we need to focus on our missile defense system, not our ballistic missile system.

    2) We leave them when they need help the most. Were planning to leave Afghanistan in 2014, leaving them in a turmoil of civil war. We're leaving Syria, which is having thousands dead murdered in cold blood. Sure, we have Russia and China vetoing the action, but we should at least have a bigger outcry for help, instead of begging for justice for Treyvon Martin.

    3) Our stereotypes and hatred for them, of course.

    As I stated on more occasions then I can even count,
    Islamic sects have been fighting eachother forever.
    If they weren't fighting with the West or Israel, they would still be fighting eachother.

    Not true, we had an impact on the world economy since the 1800s.

    We kinda did, but not to any degree of politics or any real impact on the lives of any significant population.

    Point being: America had nothing to do with any world politics till the 1900's, even then its pretty obvious that this middle eastern shit goes back to times WAY before the creation of America itself.

    I laugh at anyone who believes there is an organisation called "al qaeda" trying to kill us in the west. It was made up to give an excuse to start wars. The middle east isnt a threat to the west. The USA fears Iran, Russia and China because they are the only countries it cant control.
