But most of the time it is obvious. Slaughtering minorities in genocides, or suicide bombings for the emperor, have a "savage" mentality. I also think stoning adulterers, lynching homosexuals, blowing up minority religions' houses of worship, etc. are "savage" in mentality.
So the war in Afghanistan/etc might be attacking the worst of the modern "savages" to "civilize" them
So the war in Afghanistan/etc might be attacking the worst of the modern "savages" to "civilize" them. The oil-control-theories/terrorism-theories might just be a front. We probably have plenty of oil in Alaska & offshore, and we could easily wipe-out the terrorists if we really wanted.
I don't agree with all I stated. I was stating what I think the elites think about, if that makes sense. To understand what's going on, you should put yourself in the mentality of those who think they are above the rest of humanity. That's simply what I was trying to do.
I'm NOT saying America is the greatest possible utopia, but look at some of these other places, and you'll be glad to have ANY freedom at all.
I feel bad & sorry for the innocent civilians who are suffering, and I'd like their lives to include some basic human rights that all people deserve. That, I'm sure, we should agree on.
It's okay to stone a woman who commits adultery, even if she was raped.
It's okay to behead someone who questions Allah, Muhamed, the Koran, or who converts to another religion.
It's okay to blow up a church, or charge an extra-high tax on Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, and any other non-Muslim.
It's okay to KILL homosexuals. (and while WE argue about marriage, homosexuals get slaughtered just for coming out of the closet.)
It's okay to thoroughly beat your wife if the does not obey you.
It's okay to blow yourself up, as long as you take some infidels with you.
---Seriously, we argue over petty stuff. Imagine how people live in 50% of the world where there is NO freedom!!
Sure, American ELITES do some evil things, but let's compare our human rights here to Afghanistan/etc
