I my self personally believe Mr. Galloway is correct, in that the West (American foreign policy along with Britain) has increased the levels of terrorism and terrorist world wide.
It would only be expected, keep shoving some one you will get shoved back.
What does this mean? Im sure Russian resistance against the Nazis increased Nazi activity, but what does this all mean. You aren't implying that we wouldn't have terrorism if we didn't go into Iraq, by that same standard there would have be no Nazis in Russia.

Actually it is a very simple concept. If you force people to do something, they will eventually raise against you. After that whatever naming conventions you use are arbitrary, the result is that a cause from the stronger resulted in the effect of the weaker resisting.
America started this thing in Iraq and Iran decades ago. We need to start to think in longer time periods than the mode we currently are in. After a week it is old news and a month it is forgotten - that is why they are able to lie so fully and get away with it. Very few have memories long enough to remember what actually was going on instead of the history revisionism that is so previlent today.
Saddam had the ability to make up his own mind. Knew what he was getting himself into. No, Iranian students started what is happening in Iran, as well as the overthrow of the Shah. Two cases not backed by the US. Maybe you have the short term memory.
This extremely important document is one of the last major pieces of the puzzle explaining American and British roles in the August 1953 coup against Iranian Premier Mohammad Mossadeq. Written in March 1954 by Donald Wilber, one of the operation’s chief planners, the 200-page document is essentially an after-action report, apparently based in part on agency cable traffic and Wilber’s interviews with agents who had been on the ground in Iran as the operation lurched to its conclusion.
