Quote from: Langenator on July 25, 2016, 08:44:10 PMNow, the events most people call The Crusades, that's what you call a counteroffensive.  8)

Other things, like the Northern Crusadesand the Spanish conquest of the Americas, I'll give you that. Although honestly IMO those were basic grabs for land/resources/power with religion as an excuse.

I'd rather like what the Golden Horde considered counteroffensive aka the end of the Islamic Golden Age.

Ah, well....I'd like to remind you that Christendom, didn't exactly keep the violence "In House" either, aka "The Crusades"

My wife's minivan can do 300 miles (freeway) without refueling.  300 miles, plus or minus, seems to me to be more or less the norm for most cars.


Now, they probably use a whole lot more gas to do it, but they can haul a lot more, as well.

There was also a rather long war, lasted something like thirty years, can't remember the name of it, that helped push Christendom's change. 


If Islam could keep the violence 'in house' so to speak, it would be less of a problem.  At least, for those of us on the outside. If they would stop exporting their violence, the rest of the world would happily let them get their violence on undisturbed, as long as they kept selling oil. (Yes, I do expect there would be much hand wringing about civilian casualties, refugees, and 'responsibility to protect,' but I think it's been pretty well shown that the only way to accomplish said protection is intervention, which would probably just prolong the agony by preventing the Muslims from working their issues out.)

That's sad news, Doc, but as Ken said, we don't always know the reasons that put us in the places we are at present. May you have the patience and fortitude to get through this and come out on the other side as a stronger and wiser person.

Islam is under going a phase change.  One that Christianity underwent 600 years ago.  Separation of Church and State.  Just remember, it took well over 200 years, for the greater majority to take place, and still has remnants, to this day.

Sorry to hear about that.  It may not feel too good, right now, but everything happens for a reason.  (True, it might be a very stupid reason.)


Two things to remember:


1) "What does not kill you, makes you stronger"


2) John W. Campbell, Jr. said that Somebody, now living, has a really good chance to living Forever.  In that case, you might well still live Out There!  Living Well, is the Best, err...Revenge. (Don't really know if you want Revenge)
