@ narciso: the reavers were men who lost their humanity...and the Alliance were Meddlers.
narcisco, you are a meddler. Meddling is the driver for the whole mess in MENA. holocaustguilt ridden euros carving up Israel.....crippling Iraq by mashing warring tribes and sects together....big white christian bwana and the British Raj, Operation Ajax and the Epic Fail of the Grand Misadventure of the Manifest Destiny of Judeoxian Democracy in MENA (aka the Bush Doctrine)....Islamism is a nationalist pushback, not a religion.
Teacher: Earth-That-Was could no longer sustain our numbers, we were so many. We found a new solar system, dozens of planets and hundreds of moons. Each one terraformed, a process taking decades, to support human life, to be new Earths. The Central Planets formed the Alliance. Ruled by an interplanetary parliament, the Alliance was a beacon of civilization. The savage outer planets were not so enlightened and refused Alliance control. The war was devastating, but the Alliance's victory over the Independents ensured a safer universe. And now everyone can enjoy the comfort and enlightenment of true civilization.
Young River: People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome.
the west sowed the dragonsteeth.
An infinite supply, since we can't seem to stop.
more dragonsteeth in the graveyard of empires everyday.
Islamism has nothing to do with al-Islam. People that kill innocents and other muslims cannot be muslim....the Prophet said.
@ CK MacLeod:i think your whole post gobbledygook.
it makes no sense at all.
look, more democracy in MENA doesn't mean more secularism. It means more Islam. Iraq is an islamic state with shariah in the constitution and religious political parties. Hamas was democratically elected in a UN-observed fair election. And now Turkey is evolving from a quasi-secular Kemalist dictator/military junta to a representative islamic republic like Iran.
more democracy in MENA-->more Islam.
its what the people want. ;)
Islamophobia just guarantees an infinite supply of spare parts for the Reaver Factories in MENA.
This is nonsense.
the hirgabi killed innocents.
they are not muslims, no matter what they call themselves.
