    "It is time for the sane majority to see this for what it is; a mad religious war that does not belong in this century." - Andy Murray First, Andy, I am inclined to agree with the general direction of your posts. But, I disagree with your above cited assessment as to the nature of the conflict, i.e., that it is a "mad religious war." While there is certainly a religious component to it, the primary driving motivation has always been "land, land, land and resources, resources, resources." I don't see why this conflict shouldn't be viewed like any of the other numerous conflicts throughout history that were driven by the same basic economic motivating factors, even though the convenient "mad religious war" label was found attaching to them, as well. In my view of history, greed and avarice always precede devotion and religiousity. Some may call this view cynical. The historical record, however, makes it eminently demonstrable, nonetheless.
