    No matter how much and many they would kill, it will not take them any where. They arct to be asmahed of themselves that other citizens of other nations are fighting hard to make thier country a better place for them to live they are busy killing thier fellow citizens in the name of religious diffirences which they can over look and help move the country forward.l make bold to say that if they want the country divided, they had better say so.
