Question #1: What was the US' previous involvement in Afganistan in the past 25 years? How did this involve Bin Laden? How could this previous involvement be involved in the current conflicts and the "War on Terror?"
Question #2: What reasons, beyond the falsely stated greed, could the US NEED to be in Iraq? What countries are currently aiding the insurgence? (And, according to some reports, manning/training it?) MORE IMPORTANTLY (!!) what countries are backing THOSE countries? Who supplied emergency medical aid to Iraqi officials during the invasion? Who's been stealing our secrets? Where did Iran get their nuclear tech? And what has the previous involvement of the US been with those countries? Why would the US not want to openly fight against those countries and, instead, fight a war by proxy? Who was the US fighting the last time it fought a war by proxy?
Question #3: What major social movements have had an enormous impact on US society in the past 75 years? Who were the key players in these movements, and what were their connections? What inspired McCarthyism?
Question #4: Does it all make sense now?
