Breaking News: Weapons of Mass Destruction found

British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw and US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice last night declared a major breakthrough in the 'War Against Terror' after Weapons of Mass Destruction were at last discovered. It came as the pair visited a Lancashire plant of British Aerospace Systems, an arms company which manufactures parts for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Foreign Secretary Jack Straw was elated by the news and declared: 'We will not rest until all lethal Weapons of Mass Destruction are destroyed, and those responsible for their production and distribution brought to justice.' Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice added that 'those trying to manufacture WMD posed the biggest threat to humanity in the coming century'. Secretary of State Rice's tour of Britain continues.

Anyone who spend time reading what this idiot wrote, please read what I have to say.

You're not very bright, are you buddy?

For starters, that picture you have where it says: "the West Lost the first three Crusades....Impeach Bush" is dumb.

For starters, the "West" won the first Crusade. Didn't really fight for much in the second Crusade (seeing that it was more of a preimptive strike). The Third Crusade was the only Crusade out of the first three which was about reclaiming the Holy Land. You are obviously not well versed in History are you?

True, Richard the Lion Heart had some sins to answer too, but he wasn't nearly as bad as certain kings of the Middle East (especially the Turkish ones). In fact, Richard the lion heart went on Crusade to make up for his evil ways. Funny, you ONLY mention the bad that Richard did. what about the good? Every single time his soldiers tried to loot, he forced them to return it. After the victory of Acre, Richard forced Duke Leopold of Austrasia to remove their banner so that it wouldn't demoralize the Muslims leaving. Richard also pretty much freed Cyprus from a tyrannical dictator AND Richard didn't take Cyprus for himself. The last thing I'll mention is that when Richard went back home (after the Crusades) he was shot by an arrow while trying to reclaim a castle that was his in France.

Well, they caught the person who shot him and it was a little boy. The little boy told him that his father and brothers were killed in wars against Richard before. Richard adamently ordered for the boy to be sparred and asked for his forgiveness. He then sent the boy away with a chest full of gold. Sadly, after Richard died, one of the grieving lords was so pissed that he had the boy executed.

THIS IS A MESSAGE TO ANYONE READING THIS GUY'S STUPIDITY. Don't believe all of it. As I believe there are two sides to each story. I've told you the other side of the story.

BTW, I have a degree in history and I'm working on my masters. I also am an Arab. I just thought I'd tell you that.
