I think it's time for the Reunion Government to review policy on Islamic immigrants and people who are associated with Islam living there.

Why? It's not like they don't have golf in Reunion...they do. That is the canary in their coal mine. When the golf disappears, then they have problems.

The Palestinian Arabs have problems right off the bat...

Not only is there no golf and no mechanism for the peaceful transition of power in Arab countries, it is now fodder for reality TV. Since they can't have ACTUAL elections, the youth have taken to asking "what if?".

Find me one country where Muslims have gone and have been a POSITIVE! instead of an overwhelming 100 percent NEGATIVE! to that society.

They CANNOT! blame it on unfairness anymore due to their image of Terrorist, rape and murder.

Islam is a society of the Stone Age.

You know what I've learned while doing this the past five years? Not every place conforms to my idea of normal. For example: I personally believe that Egypt is a toilet...a great big open-air sewer. Egyptians however believe they reside in a great cradle of civilization. I expected Turkey to be just another shithole and was surprised to find it quite modern and progressive. All that may be sliding now that an Islamist government is reversing the Kemalist reforms that made democracy possible but there are still fans of Turkey with life-long friendships there.

How about you and I take each place on a case by case basis?

The Quran states that Non-Muslims are the enemy which is worship by all Muslims around the World which in return makes us their enemy.

One point five billion Muslims? On my best day I could only kill half that many. We'll have to come up with a better solution...something less noisy.

Gee fauxldier-boy, I see your memory isn't what it used to be. Or is it that you never actually read any response to your one-liners because you are so quick to copy and paste your propaganda?

To refresh your memory, while you went walkabout in the Arab world after your stint in the great southeast Asian vacation, I went back to Vietnam...twice. Following my '72 deployment I changed squadrons, ships, fleet and oceans so that I could arrive in the Med for the big party in October of '73. I'm guessing I spent at least four times more time on the line as you and managed NOT to change sides.

Now, your turn...why do you persist in misspelling your own name?

Yo, Commander. You forgot that "Gray" was washing bedpans, changing linens and fondling wounded G.I.'s while you were incinerating villages loaded with VC. But, you're right. Old Red's memories ain't what it used to be. Without that extensive cut and paste library, she doesn't have an original thought in the steel encased cranium. Those braille keys help some with those cataracts laden baby blues. I love the changing sides thing. But, nobody likes to get passed over for promotion by much more qualified candidates. It makes one bitter. By your leave, Sir!!

Being promoted is only slightly less fulfilling than winning in AC. Have fun?

I wish I did something worthwile with my post-service service like Grey did, washing bedpans and blaming Jews for every GI that ever passed through the VA system. Instead, I lobbied congressmen for more funding so that vets could find newer, nearer VA facilities and the existing infrastructure could be rehabilitated and modernized. Cuz you know, when you're stuck in one of those places you need far fewer trained professionals and as many bitter old volunteers as you can get.

You rarely win. You survive, have fun and keep an eye on the wallet. If you come home without checking into the ATM, you win. Hit most of the Casinos, but it is pre-season. Saw a couple of Mohammeds, but other than that, it was enjoyable. Our Buffet Mohammed server was a lazy prik and got the bare minimum. I mean, if you can't manage a table where you just take empty dishes away, u suk. I see the thread has subsided a bit. Not enough killing to peak the interest. Especially Jew casualties. I'll take it.

The Syrians are so bored they took their revenge against Israel by bombing Turkey twice. I know, it doesn't make any sense to me either but when was that ever a requisite?

If I had thought about it, an ATM card would have saved me a lot of trouble in Italy. Who'd a thunk that taxis wouldn't take credit cards in Rome?

ATM? Cabs? Ever been through Port Authority? What a fukcing zoo. Every tenth scumbag passing by is running a scam. They got Mama for $5 before I even turned around to warn her. My last trip through that cesspool. Had no idea how bad it is. The lines to the restrooms rivaled the Super Bowl at half-time. Something to dry your hands? Try your own jeans. As bad as it is, Gaza would love to have those amenities. At least the water was still running. Next time, Limo Service, to and from.$$ don't matter. I'm still scratching and skiving. Disgusting.

Chopper in, it's the only way to VIP and since money is no object...

There was a good news/bad news quality to Ostia Antica. It took us to an amazing archaeological site away from Rome's tourists. Unfortunately, it was a school day and every field trip in every grade was at the ruins. Imagine walking over a mile to get half-way in and reaching the museum where the WC and snack bar were only to be surrounded in a Matrixesque swarm of little woozles simultaneously vaccuuming up every shred of snacks while leaking all their fluids over every surface of the restroom.

Toilet paper? Paper towels? BWAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
