Quote from: CatholicCrusader on July 21, 2014, 09:16:06 AMMy favorite thing about World War 1 is that it brought about the entire destruction of the Ottoman Empire, the worst Islamic threat our world has ever seen.
Quote from: CatholicCrusader on July 21, 2014, 10:05:30 AMI didn't say at that time that they were the biggest threat. If they had won the war that would have been a different story. For centuries the Ottoman Empire was the most powerful Empire in the world.
Quote from: Moralnihilist on July 21, 2014, 11:29:49 AMWhat you said was clear, you claimed them to be "the worst islamic threat our world has ever seen." That claim was disproven with facts. Now you wish to backtrack and reverse your bullshit claim. You do know that you are "arguing" history with someone with a PhD in history don't you?I told you don't play with history here junior.
Quote from: CatholicCrusader on July 21, 2014, 11:54:03 AM The Ottoman Empire conquered more land for Islam than any other Muslim Empire or regime and was more powerful.
Quote from: Jason_Harvestdancer on July 21, 2014, 12:40:43 PMThe most powerful empire the world has ever seen (in terms of the technology available at the time) is a description that I would apply to either the Mongol empire or the British empire. The Ottoman empire? Nah.
