and so is Tony Silver! Christian countires, and all others, have been fighting Islam since its inception. The Britihs fought in afghanistan; they had to partition India, and there were more deaths in India than all of the Arab-israeli wars put togehter. that formula seems to apply to many mid-east conflicts. Russians in afghanistan - 1 million deaths; iran-iraq war, 1 million deaths. The story goes on. Algerian civil war. None of these have anything to do with Israel. Petraus is simply an imperialist General. USA wants to control the world - that is nothing to do with Jews or Israel. Israel may take a piggy back ride on this train, but then so does everyone else, including Egypt and the Palestinians, who also receive aid from the US. The foold who wish to link Israel to America' oil wars, are just creating new myths. US backed the aghan militias in their fight against USSR. The militias then fought each other, Taleban and warlords. Then al qaeda started it s campaign against US.
