Or do they think Afghans were the ones who bombed them? What do you think the American soldiers think about? If it wasn't money then their heads
would be straight therefore allowing them to do some thinking, and then allowing them to come to the conclusion that none of the attackers were
See this is where your argument breaks down. No one has claimed Afghans were among the hijackers. If you were able to read and comprehend fully, you
would realize I've said SEVERAL times now that the Taliban HARBORED the enemy, ALLIED themselves with the enemy, and there fore BECAME the enemy.
I'll bet dollars against donuts that you will still return to the same tired line that no one is disputing, and which has no bearing on the subject.
Much the same way as a dog returns to his own vomit, you don't know where else to go. It's a non-starter.
Which day? Are you talking about the Iraq civil war? The American unjustified war directly effected the civil war, bad management, I don't know but
when you invade a country for the heck of it and risk thousands of lives, then the least you can do is to make sure more lives are not ruined through
Don't know all that much about the nature of war, do you? That's OK, neither does the Iraqi "resistance". Killing off your own people is not a
great way to build a base of support among them, nor does it thin the numbers of your alleged opposition all that much. I suppose if the US could
control this "resistance", all would be well, wouldn't it? Unfortunately, we don't get to specify who they kill.
Do you see how ridiculous that sounds? I bet you don't.
You can make anything sound rediculous, you sound shocked..
Another great answer when you have no answer.
It seems to me that if the jihadists really believed that BS, they'd be pretty gung ho to go after the American enforcement arm, i.e. the American
military, and a little LESS hell bent on killing their own folks, and other defenseless innocents.
They have the right to go against the American military and government, we have already established that.
I notice you conveniently failed to justify their murder of the innocents, which was the main thrust of my point. Neither did you explain why they
kill innocents in far greater numbers than they kill their "enemy". Nice sidestep, but epic fail overall.
I'm just not seeing the logic there.
That is why they invented the veil. If you don't want to be seen then wear a veil, but if you don't want to see then wear blinds.
No blinders needed. When you produce some logic, then maybe I'll check into it.
Then you go on to make a statement about how the brave jihadists are just fighting because someone is killing them (didn't start out that way, bub,
started out quite the other way), and the American soldiers are just fighting for money, and have no other reason.
It didn't start that way? People don't forget as fast as America does, when you ruin millions of lives, ofcurse it is easy for the perpetrators to
forget, but not for the victims. People who have been effected by your foreign policy based on self interest counts to millions, and they all want to
fight America, not because they are getting paid, or because they are insane Islamic monster who just want to take over the world, but because they
are humans. Just like you and me.
Perpetrators? Victims? This whole thing started when the US was unjustifyably attacked. Under those circumstances, self interest usually dictates a
response to discourage further attacks. This in turn greatly enhances survival.
Yeah, I reckon you have a point. Sometimes it IS pretty easy for the perpetrators to forget. Especially when they can dump the response over onto
Kinda like your al-Qaeda buddies did, and still do, in this current war.
Why won't they forget and forgive? Because American policies hasn't changed at all. I'm hoping Obama would bring change, but only time will
Yeah, the "change" he's brought so far, together with 1.39 in REAL change, will buy a cup of coffee at McDonalds. Good luck with that. He's about
to face his own problems here.
Big pile of money? You don't need to give an individual with poor income a million dollar to kill Many young students looking for money to go to
college etc etc.
You must have learned that in Afghanistan. Doesn't work that way here. There's lots of ways to go to college without having to go to faraway places
and take chances on getting shot at. I went to 3 different colleges, at different times, and never spent a dime of military money to do it, and I
started out as poor as anyone I ever saw in Afghanistan.
I bet you don't get to ride on their yacht.
Another "great answer", but I can forgive that one. Irony obviously goes right over your head.
If you knew how much American soldiers make, you'd crawl back into your cave and try real hard to think up something else to talk about.
LOL yeah still bored.
Another great answer. You're just full of it, aren't you?
Because that argument just doesn't fly.

yeah sure, I guess you have never lived a life of hardship, there are million in America who has
If you only knew. I started out in a shack in the mountains, with holes in the roof such that I frequently woke up with snow hitting me in the face.
No indoor plumbing, no running water, all that stuff. Heat from a wood stove, in one room. Had to kill to eat. That house is burnt to the ground now.
Good riddance. The one thing I had going for me was the smarts to improve my situation. My only resources were ME.
Yeah, I GOT yer knowledge of hardships, buddy.
