Not to their country. The nation state has been the primary binder of peoples now for hundreds of years. A universal, trans-national adherence to the ummah is not as existent as you think (How about the Iran V. Iraq war?). It is mainly muslims in the west who espouse such rhetoric, not peoples in traditionally muslim countries.
They can be with their beloved kuffar on the Day of Judgement!
If they think carpet bombing civillians is protecting innocents, I beg to differ!
MAY ALLAH GUIDE THEM!
Yes, may allah guide them... I think they feel that allah has guided them to do this. The "beloved kuffar" who gave them freedom to adopt a religion hostile to the "kuffar" government? You may only be 16, mu'minah, but I think you are smarter than that. "Carpet bombing civilians" is a lazy accusation, my friend.
I don't know how a muslim can not see the conflict of something like this.
It is called, in F Scott Fitzgerald's lexicon, the definition of "intelligence"... That is, "the ability to hold two contradictory priciples in one's mind at the same time..." But there is conflict in everything in life; no ideal is left unbloodied by an unfortunate counter-example. These folks might have felt that by going to war as a muslim, it kept one less non-believer from engaging in a conflict that needs understanding minds (and boots) on the ground. I'm sure they are not thrilled with having to do so, but with responsibility come some unpleasant tasks. (and only a small fraction of any modern military engages in actual combat, mind you)
No muslim should serve with the U.S or the U.K army, this is just shocking what are they gonna do kill their brothers and sisters just beacuse bush and blair say so.
No, they may not do anything of the sort! Again, they might feel an impulse to serve the country that has given them wealth, freedom and opportunity, rather than sit on their couch and complain about how victimised muslims are. It takes a stronger spirit to do the former than the latter, imo.
And who said anyone killed anyone? And it is an all volunteer army, man.
and call me foolish and old fashioned,
no, heigou, I won't! And you can't make me! (my immitation of an adolescent tantrum). :)
I think if you are going to call for a boycott of Armies just because they kill Muslims and Muslimas, you could start a lot closer to the Middle East than Britain and America. How about Iran or Algeria? Jordan or Syria?
And the Sudan. And Pakistan. And Somalia. And Lebanon.... Probably easier to overthrow one of these regimes than a western democracy, anyway!
a Fine Example Of America's Fine Justice Is Fallujah + Abu Ghraib (twice!)
Yup! Most of the filthy, barbaric a$%holes who did participate in Abu Gharib have been charged, tried, found guilty, and sentenced to rot in federal prison for some years to come. And a vast majority of Americans were disgusted and horrified at what happened to those detainees (very much unlike an almost silent muslim response to major muslim-initiated terror attacks). That is a lot more justice than I have EVER found a muslim country to administer.
