    ^Exactly right, well, sort of, Cheney, Rove, Wolfowitz, Perle, Feith, and the other chickenhawks were the ones pushing Shrub to expand terrorism groups, by giving them lots to be “ticked off” about. (That same group is still trying.)

    “Let’s be clear about the source of the threat we face. The terrorist threat was not created by the Iraq War 10 years ago. It existed even before the horrific attacks on 9/11, themselves some time before the Iraq War.” David Cameron

    ^Ever hear of Desert Storm? (91)


    Also, watch a few British cop shows and consider their CCTV coverage over there, and the potential for folks running around “loose”.


    Then there’’s the European and American agreements to break up or create “the Middle East”, in 1918 through the 20’s? T.E. Lawrence had some suggestions, ignored, that indeed might have made the Arabs a little happier than all the betrayals of them((ever since), and it isn’t even about “Islam”.

    it isn’t even about “Islam”.

    Of course it is. They openly say so. Don’t you believe them?

    Did you forget about the beheading of that British soldier on the streets of London just last year, or the 2005 London subway and bus attacks?

    No, we didn’t forget. Are you saying that others, not of your political persuasion, can’t be horrified by those freaks, too?
    .
    We all agree that the actions and twisted credo of those terrorists are heinous. Where we don’t agree is how to deal with them.
    .
    It’s offensive to read conservative posts like yours that suggest people you disagree with are incapable of patriotism.
    .
    dt was talking about the broken promises that were made after WWI (and not just Islam), that had snowballing effects. Cause and effect. Debate how much Islam has had vs. Western tampering over the decades. But there was no need for the patronizing reply to DT.

    Oh, please… TROUT has never seen an IslamoNazi regime that he hasn’t made an excuse for. From Iran to Hamas to al Qaeda to ISIS, TROUT will find a way to post some moral relativistic claptrap about it. His posts usually follow the formula: “Terrorist X isn’t so bad. We/Israel do much worse. The US/Israel sux. It’s Reagan/Bush/Bush/Netanyahu’s fault. But don’t get me wrong— I like the Jews. I was talking to one at an airport.”

    ^I have NEVER, EVER, made an “excuse”, you need to check for the meaning of the word “rationale”. I have also pointed out that while Jews were persecuted for centuries (mostly by Christians, actually, including Herr Hitler who was a Roman Catholic), they have a rationale for their centuries of cultural synergy to survive in certain fields, but that does NOT “excuse” the violence of radical, violent, “Zionists”, such as ETSEL and their political offspring, Likud.


    I’ve dealt with, known, and made friends with many Jewish people over the decades. I have great respect for the SKILLS of Mossad, I would just hate to see some of their techniques applied here. (It’s called our Constitutional freedoms. But over the last 30 years or so, CIA and NSA haven’t been too attuned to that concern.)

    dtroutma correctly points to the fact that much of the dis-satisfaction/hatred by semite nations against European powers and the U.S. dates back to the First World War. Outside powers drew the new maps of mideast territories into nations which benefitted their own desires, and largely ignored the probable implications of forcing rival tribes and religious factions under one “government”. In Churchill’s time (as the Last Lion of Britain’s Victorian era) he and most other pols thought that whatever they set up would last indefinitely, until THEY chose to make changes. When Truman didn’t honor FDR’s pledge to not support the UN resolution to establish the state of Israel, this was simply another grievance in the Arab mind vis-a-vis Arab/Western relations.
    .
    After WWII, these grievances simmered, ignited a few wars, and something was happening which probably never entered the minds of western pols. In Islam, there is no separation of chuch & state, of politics and religious belief.
    They are both one and the same. Throw in tribal pride and religious fanaticism, and,…her we are.

    Still, it is time for these people to grow up. MANY peoples throughout history have been cheated, robbed or been nearly wiped out. At some point, the hatred has to been confronted, by each individual, forgive (does not mean forget) and move forward. Anwar Sadat attempted such, and was murdered for his blasphemy. Islam has yet to find an enlightened leader with the respect, power and fortitude to lead them out of the Dark Ages.
