It is amazing what hate and or religion can do to some young people's minds.

There are people risking everything to get to some western nation yet this guy apparently risked everything to go overseas to become a martyr's helper. How many others are in line and waiting for their day of glory and martyrdom ?

It is true for most of us (I assume) if our kids, wife, father/mother were killed by some countries bombing most would forego the 72 virgins to get revenge if we were Muslim or whatever any religion promises in the after life... so there are always to sides to every story, no ?

This world is so full of misguided hate, if you care, you have to wonder where it will all end ?

TOM HAYS, Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — A U.S. citizen already accused of going to Pakistan to train with al-Qaida was charged Wednesday with helping build explosives for a 2009 suicide attack on an American military base in Afghanistan.

A revised indictment charges Muhanad Mahmoud Al Farekh with conspiracy to murder U.S. nationals, conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction and other crimes. He is to appear Thursday in federal court in Brooklyn; there was no immediate comment by his lawyer.

The charges stem from an attack on Jan. 19, 2009, involving two vehicles driven by unidentified suicide bombers that were rigged with explosives, the new indictment says. Only one of the bombs detonated. Al Farekh's fingerprints were later found on packing tape used on the second explosive, the indictment says.

Yet we pin medals on those who fly jets and drop weapons of mass destruction on those same places.

Is it they can only afford a truck that makes them more criminal? Or that they shoot back?

The real treacherous traitors are the ones invading and waging aggressive wars in foreign lands unjustly.

Your thread should have been titled:

"American MUSLIM charged in bombing attack on US base in Afghanistan"

Why do you have to be so politically correct? Ah yes, T&C of using exact title as in the article...gotcha

It is amazing what hate and or religion can do to some young people's minds.

"... hate and or religion... " is a very good approach but, IMESHO, politics and indoctrination of ANY kind should be added. History shows us how this can be done, with Nazi Germany being the most recent and most unforgettable in the 20th century.

It was a horror show of how people can be so easily led.

The human species is... well, as I have said many times here prior... the human species is in nursery mode - we are not mature, we are not yet capable of rising above our immature inclinations. And, as of right this moment, we are being so damned politically indoctrinated, we are like a herd of younguns being guided to the cliff by the pied piper.

Unfortunately, it is also my opinion that we have already passed a point of no return. What the future holds for the human race is something that, once experienced and then passed, will never be forgotten nor should it be allowed to ever happen again.

Unfortunately, we also have a very, very short memory span. Generations that carry record are regularly cast aside as they die off... just so it can be done all over again, the lesson taught again, the suffering and blood and death a lesson being learned, again.

Hopefully, someday it will stick.
