Ok Biker eddie a quick google on "CIA carbomb beiruth 85" got enough.. err the bombing of dresden is "histrocal fact" as far as i know.. and the kissinger quote was from a chomsky book i read and he usually has good sources.

Look thats just 3 off the top of my head, i feel really stupid here trying to bring your attention to the countless times civilians have been targetted by "legitimate" armies and organizations.

Do you own research man, just realize there are enough examples by the US alone to fill a number of books, and there are other "good old" imperialist countries like the UK too dont foget!

Ill just say it again civiliains have been fair game since they were in range...

As to "why not just say that".. i suppose.. bit of a one liner though ;p

However after my initial post i was manily refuting your statement that the targetting of civilians was the main difference between soldiers and terrorists.

The real fact of the matter is there is no difference: one is a soldier (freedom fighter) the other is a terrorist (terrorist). They shoot just as much they kill just as much and they are just as indiscriminate as each other, killing is their means to an end. And is this end.. this goal.. that we base our judment on wether its a just or unjust cause, and this in turn decides what label we stick on.

Could it be because your terrorist regime of a government has lied to you so many times?

Why do you continue to support it? You should ask yourself that question.

Innocence lost
November 18, 2004

By Robert Fisk

....
And when it percolated through to Fallujah and Ramadi that the mere act of kidnapping Margaret Hassan was close to heresy, the combined resistance groups of Fallujah - and the message genuinely came from them - demanded her release.

yeah i am serious syrian sister.... it seems to me that in lots of these treads the poor CIA get blamed for all sorts!

There is no evidance that they are behind this and if there is why are people cutting heads off in the middle of the street? surly they cannot be fake also as i have spoken to eye witnesses to this fact and people who have lost loved ones...... suggest you read the letter eddie posted in his other thread stating about the little girl..... are you going to blame the CIA for this also......

here is some coffee, take a whif!

Look people. The ONLY difference between Terrorist and Soldiers is that a Soldier is officially state sanctioned. Other than that, no difference. BOTH have committed attrocities that are unforgivable. People, this constant bickering of Im right and you are wrong will get us nowhere. How about we look at this without emotions getting in the way.

Clarke: CIA Had Low-Level Spies Inside Al Qaeda

Wed Nov 17,11:25 PM ET Top Stories - Reuters


By Tabassum Zakaria

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The CIA (news - web sites) had some low-level spies inside al Qaeda in the three years before the Sept. 11 attacks, but none who could provide advance information about the group's movements, according to testimony released on Wednesday from a closed-door intelligence briefing in 2002.

The CIA did not have spies inside the network run by Osama bin Laden (news - web sites) until 1999, but "none of them very high-level," Richard Clarke, a former White House counterterrorism official, told the joint congressional committee investigating Sept. 11.


In a rare move, the Senate Intelligence Committee released a 103-page declassified transcript of the June 11, 2002, closed-door briefing on its Web site late on Wednesday. Most of the information had been made public during subsequent open hearings and in the final report of the joint inquiry.


The CIA "never had anyone in position to tell us what was going to happen in advance, or even where bin Laden was going to be in advance," Clarke told lawmakers.


On the three occasions when they thought they knew bin Laden's location, the CIA opposed taking military action, saying its sources were not good enough, he said.


"I think it is very difficult to place human sources high up in al Qaeda. I think it is possible to develop low-level sources. I think it is possible to develop technical means of collection that may provide us with information," Clarke said.


Several times in the 1990s the Pentagon (news - web sites) was asked "snatch" terrorism suspects overseas, but the main message to the White House from uniformed military leadership was that they did not want to do this, Clarke said.


He said a leading al Qaeda operative had been pinpointed in Khartoum. "We knew what hotel he was in. We knew what room he was in the hotel."


The CIA did not have snatch capability and the military leadership told the White House that it would never work, while telling subordinates who had planned an operation that the White House had stopped it, Clarke said.


Asked how much information was obtained from hundreds of terrorism suspects held by other countries in the late 1990s, Clarke replied: "That depends on the country. If they were held in a West European democracy, we didn't get very much information."


He said the National Security Agency does not gather intelligence in Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Infact, Osama bin Ladin is said to have CIA links since the first afghan war.

9/11 was an inside job, reichstag fire 1939.

Why do people support terrorist?

Because we have people like Syrian Sister and Corinthas in the world. Who are stupid enough to believe the US is behind every evil act in the world, so they get behind whoever opposes the US. Focusing on Iraq now- they like to completely ignore the fact that these terrorists have killed and injured thousands of their own people, because innocents also died by our hands during the war. They take all anti-American propaganda as gospel because they're to blinded by hatred to see that what's said could easily be proven false, but when someone even hints at anything pro US, they immediately claim it's propaganda.

Well, some of those supporters are brainwashed.

Others just simply don't give a damn, so long as they make a buck.

Was this the act of a CIA member? Or was it the act of some US soldier?
Or maybe even some UK soldier?

Man that was wrong and really uncalled for. I dont agree with everything they are saying, but alot of it, well, it deserves a second, third, and maybe even a fourth look. We have terrorist because a group of people are unhappy with their current situation. PERIOD. That is what it all boils down to.

Because your government is full of terrorists, and it thrives on the hate, racism and arrogance, of the people who support it.
