    I am intimately familiar with the situation... and am not "misreading" it.

    •  Wow! When? (0+ / 0-)

      Are you from Afghanistan?

      Getting Dems together and keeping them that way is like trying to herd cats, hopped up on crank, through LA, during an earthquake, in the rain. -6.25, -6.10

        But I've lived in the Gulf, Qatar specifically.

        They have a following there, and everywhere else in the Gulf. They raise money, and teach their "version" of Islam. Their following is not big, but it provides for them. They've been active there for years.

        the guy was telling me about the war with the Soviet Union. He said that the when they recovered the bodies of the dead mujahideen, that their bodies smelled of roses, because they had become shahid (martyrs).

        These guys are foul... and nuts.
