    Do you know what ? i am seeing this war on terror converting ” Holy War ”
    as only whole world who are slave of infidels “America” are listing all muslims countries , continents as terrorists , this is not fear i used to support war on terror but i will and along me trillion muslims would not support Holy War and i fear this war on terror soon convert in Holy War, because of not solving tentions peacefully, when Nato forces will kill civilians who will bear, would you bear if few ally communities start killing innocent people of your community how long you will bear this.

    This is not creating good image of United States, What i am smelling is israeli conspiracy , and Bush him self believes in missionaries, is it good that you are killing people just for your faith? should all Muslims stand and get united to protect their faiths ? should we start holy war ?.

    International community is pushing us towards holy War.

    You all are slaves of Zionists who all are supporting and making this little war more complex and converting it in giant Holly War.

    Afghanistan has peaceful solution let their people choose their future for their betterment why NATO worsting the conditions in Afghanistan ?

    well i read again after so long my older post, as above i posted was according to that condition, and mentioned multi objectives of war on terror.
    As i feared that war will convert into holly war, but this has surely created hate among different races and religions.
    Still success in afghanistan is far away havent seen such progess only destruction and smooke in the region pakistan is under fire innocent people are target of terrorists, sucide bombing is very common, poverty ratio increasing . That is the current observation at war on terror.
