Are you such a government cheerleader, that the point of that person's post went completely over your head? Some of you are such hypocrites, if one were to browse a few of the million anti-obama threads on this board, they would see you, dooper, and a few others puffing your chests against the corrupt government, then you come to a thread like this and you guys have your pom poms out for them, are they corrupt liars or aren't they? And since you obviously didn't get it, that post was stating that many in those countries aren't islamic terrorists, and are just locals defending their homes against what they see as INVADERS. If the russians and chinese ever invaded this country and installed a government that was friendly to them and allowed them to "police" us, would YOU be friendly to them as they rolled through YOUR neighborhood and busted in and searched YOUR home in the middle of the night? I'm guessing not. I know I wouldn't be.

This is by far the most rediculous post I have ever read. Were the terrorists right?, are you serious? Trying to rationalize their point of view is just stupid. Extremeists in the middle east are not people, I would call them animals but that is not fair to animals. That part of the world is run by poverty and ignorance not rational thinking. The middle east is at war with everyone, everywhere, all the time.
For each war there is a different explanation, but is all means the same, hate. They hate just to hate, it doesnt matter who, what or where. They will never be happy. They even kill each other over disagreeances in beliefs, currently!
And to me you have just laid out the problem with this war, Tzun Tzu the art of war know thy enemy. For you to say to "try and rationalize their viewpoint is stupid" it just shines a light on the stupidity you posses. I mean of course it is stupid to try and understand why a person would hate you so blindly, because maybe if you understood that you could try and change that persons way of thinking. Nooo thats retarted lets just keep killing them and hopefully we do it faster than they can reproduce and eventually we will win. I got news for ya bud the second America starts trying to understand the reasons people are willing to blow themselves up a real change in the war can occur.
People in the midlle east arent some uneducated zombie going around and hating anything they see, by your account i should be seeing clips of Arabs on the side of the road yelling at rocks.
It is amazing to see that 8 years after this war started you can so obtusly object to anyother way of thinking, you really think your strategy is winning this war? Let me see so according to you people from the middle east are, stupid, poor, unrational, unobjectional hating CREATURES LOWER THAN HUMANS??????????
and you wonder why they dont like people like you? I DONT LIKE YOU!!!!!!!! and im Canadian, please barrage me with racist comments about my country now!!!

In these situations there is the American government side, the "terrorist" side, and the right side. Sometimes you must remove yourself from either side to see the full story. You must go by reputation rather then what you hear because everyone has their own agendas.

Not to mention the thousands of eye witnesses who lied about it as well.
Pesky eye witnesses.

Pick one of the thread bashers here, click on their name, look at the posts and threads started by them, and they do agree with 75% of what is being said in the video and have said it themselves.
There are so many hypocrites in this thread it is astounding."
I can't speak for anyone else, but just because they agree with what people have said here doesn't mean they are on their side. They might be saying these things to curry favor for their OWN cause not anyone else's.
