Wannabe jihadists, at best.

Please clear it up: Joe-Haar? or Joh-Kar?!!!!

From what I've heard, Joe-Harr is correct.

Brian, your statement about Bin Laden was a little careless. Bin Laden was supported in the Mujahadeen action against the Russians by the U.S. Once the Russians withdrew, so did we, leaving Afghanistan in tatters. Bin Laden may have "turned against the West," as you stated, but his being used by the U.S. certainly didn't help him develop a positive attitude.

Islamism became the new "communism" after the fall of the Soviet Union. Just as liberation groups once identified with communism as the umbrella liberation movement, so liberation groups today identify with global Jihad as the great liberation movement? Liberation from what? Liberation not only from foreign control or domination, but liberation from Feminism, the Homosexual agenda, and much of what westernization seems to have become in the last few decades.
