Congratulations on moving this so far off topic it needs a spacesuit to breath air.

It's not even worth replying - except to say without two nuclear bombs millions of Japanese and Americans would have been killed because Japan would have needed to be invaded and fully conquered (like Germany) before it would have surrendered.

If you have a comment on any points I raise please do make them - but don't engage in logical fallacies.

Karma given...best response to odious reasoning I've seen in ages.

Mr Godwin will hate me but they were natural allies of the Nazis because of that...both the Imperial Japanese and the Theocratic fascists.

Just a point of interest, these young girls who are allowed to marry and have children, do any of them marry young boys/men or do they all end up with 30+ guys? Are young boys allowed to marry or did Mohamed not make a decision on that?

You are allowed to marry when you are deemed an adult, (some phase of puberty). Girls are classed as ready at this ridiculous age and boys its 15.

The marriages where the men are much older is usually when more money is involved, which makes it worse............

Not necessarily. At least they won't be living in squalor.

So it's better to repeatedly rape a young girl in plush surroundings than in squalor?

They have just been pimped out for more money.

I find it very tedious that, when something that puts Islam or
Muslims in a negative light,SOME people, instead of discussing the subject at hand, make some rather strange comparisons to the West. Why? Are they not able to just discuss the subject in question? Makes SOME people look rather silly.

That's why I said "At least...". The original comment was that it makes it worse: in some instances it doesn't make it worse, it leaves it just the same: horrific. What would be worse is where the girl is not only in that awful situation but also in squalor--not because plush surroundings make what is done to her less horrific, but because she'd likely have access to proper nutrition and healthcare.

I doubt she'll have access to proper nutrition and healthcare. A man that marries and rapes a child is not very likely to care about anything but himself. So I'd say she'll not have access to either.
