Are you alluding to Obama?

People seem to make a big deal of his middle name- Hussein.

I thought he was raised as a Christian and is a practicing Christian. But even if he is a Muslim, I think it would be an asset that he could exploit for America's benefit. For one, he could work to be the model of a modern, tolerant Muslim. How disarming it would be for those rabid fundamentalists to see a Muslim leading the world's greatest democracy.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, sounds like a duck then it is a duck.

Being in the military for over 20 years, that was all I did, fought the Muslim fanatics/militants/terrorists. If you were in Beirut in early 80's, then you would know how I feel right now. The situation in Mindanao triggered this pent up emotion in me.
If you are offended by my post tell it to the Marines.

I am a conservative Republican, pro-gun, pro-military, pro-police, pro-border protection and I believe that marriage is between a man and woman only.

Raised as a Christian? Not entirely. He was educated in an Islamic school
in Indonesia, which only later shifted to a more non-sectarian curriculum.
A practicing Christian? If he says so. If he supports same-ex marriage, what am I to conclude?

But even if he is a Muslim, I think it would be an asset that he could exploit for America's benefit. How disarming it would be for those rabid fundamentalists to see a Muslim leading the world's greatest democracy.
We've seen in Mindanao, what trying to appease violent Muslims gets us.
Just more abuse, and more onerous demands, backed up by more violence.

I wouldn't dislike Obama for his religion, dermal melanin count, or his gender.
I would dislike him for his laughable inexperience and his policy platform.


Anyway, it's the Americans' choice to make.

I think nobody from the Philippines was offended. Just wanted to know what's wrong with the guy. Didn't even know he was a Muslim.

Personally, I advocate a Pluralist society but come to think of it, if it were in the Philippines, I would definitely campaign hard for the other presidentiable just because of that matter. (but that's mainly because of the nature of our countrymen from ARMM).


Just as what our resident Yoda said (Horge), it is for the Americans to choose and we're just interjecting our opinions and whatever non-sense that crops up from our minds.

If Obama wins expect prices of components to double or triple in price. People will stockpile huge amounts of components. People were caught off guard before ( Clinton).

The Marines are subordinate to civil authority; in any democracy, that's how it must be. If Obama wins, he, as Commander in Chief, will give orders to the Marines, and the Marines will say: "Yes, sir". So, Obama will in fact tell it to the Marines.
