I see your whopping 100+ posts..There are people who bait with thread titles, myself being one of them, for various reasons. It happens all the time in this forum. Mention the word GAY in a thread title, and you are are going to get thousands of views. Mention the word, poor, Africa as Jamilla does, and you are lucky for a 100 views.

You are throwing insults at a member of the forum who has respect from many on all sides of all issues.

You may disagree with the thread, and that is fine, but I find your insults pretty juevenile.

Again, we are on their soil, and I would expect those on my soil to follow the rules of our Nation.

I fail to see the problem.

Reading back I think you're right it was a little insulting but I didn't mean that way I just didn't get where it was coming from. I've just seen so many titles in here that are very misleading and that I don't find to be fair. Titles that seem to be attacks but the content of the thread has nothing to do with that. But I haven't been here all that long and I guess that's just how things are in here, I'll have to get used to it.



Sorry Nbcrusader.

No problem.

I could have used a better title here.

This has little to do with Islam. Indonesia has been fighting a dirty war with Achenese seccesionists for decades now, there are energy resources and radical Islam involved - it is basically a very messy situation that the Indonesians keep under wraps as much as possible. They don't want to have foreign powers nosing around there for too long, they have to get the TNI in to keep up their job of crushing GAM in a most brutal fashion.

You also have to consider the Indonesians dislike of Australia and the UN for "stealing" East Timor from them, they saw that as their territory being carved away by foreign powers and the Indonesian on the street does not want to see the USA and Australia give the Achenese independence.

hmmm...Indonesia's dislike for the US...
...when it was the US who created Indonesia as the current state by forcing the Netherlands to declare them independent. The US did so by threathening ot take away Marshall plan aid from the Neherlands, post WWII.

Wanderer is right on the mark, but I would like to add that Aceh's uprisings didn't start the last decades, the last major war there was at the turn of the century (disregarding WWII) but before that both british and dutch forces had been in conflict with local fighters.
