    OH you were aiming for sarcasm?

    Honestly, it's hard to distinguish on TSR, people can be serious about that stuff!

    You don't know what Jihad means, and it seems like you're ignorant.

    But if ww3 broke out, and Iran was involved, i would take the first plane to Iran and join the Iranian army.

    Well according to my Muslim friends and the internet it means 'Struggle'.

    How the **** can you say that I'm ignorant from a question, I swear everyone needs to learn what the word ignorant means.

    I'm not Muslim so why would I care about Arabic and what words mean? I'm never going to go to an Islamic state.

    Do you enjoy being an idiot? Go brush up on your history. Both the UK and USA have enjoyed fantastic success in the battlefields, including WWI and WWII.

    In WWII, Britain held on for around 8 months IIRC by themselves after France had surrendered. If they had given up in them 8 months then America would have had no war to walk into.

    Firstly, 3000 people is not a lot and AQ just got lucky. Secondly, America and others haven't been throwing their full weight behind Afghanistan. If the countries currently engaged wanted to, they could call up millions of soldiers. But it isn't worth it. In the case of a world war however...
    Yes but still spent $1 trillion and have an army totalling 200k (including NATO and domestic forces) fighting the Taliban but to no avail.

    You're assuming that Muslims in non-Muslim countries will put their full weight behind this war despite it sounding like another Al-Qaeda operation that magically causes a world war. It doesn't matter how numerous or wealthy Muslims are now if they don't have anything to contrbute to a war later on. What I mean is sure a Muslim could give a mill or two to this war but what then? Buy some arms from the West? Or develop your own arms while under fire from the world's superpowers who refuse to give you any technology
    The OP said the Islamic World has declared Jihad, meaning they are under threat and therefore Muslims would be required to fight to protect Islamic soil. This makes the situation entirely different to a normal war as a religious duty is put to Muslims globally.

    Also, a Jihad war? Can we avoid the vague religious terms and just stick with the much more sensible war?
    As I previously stated, the OP did say "The Islam World has declared a Jihad or 'Holy War' after a recent spat of terrorist attacks."

    What for telling the truth? That's not ignorant it's a good quality. It's like you going you'd jump on the first plan to Iran. That is ignorance for everything this country had done for you.

    Me saying the truth isn't ignorance. You know what GTFO my thread if you don't like what I'm saying.

    Britain is one of the most powerful nations in the world. Why does America always ask for the UK's help? It's because we along with them are the best at fighting.
