Well first i wanna start off by stating that terrorists are always categorized or identified by the stronger government, society, or just a very
influential media. Therefore, I believe that the word terrorism today is used by governments of both west and eastern origin as an excuse in order to
engage in war. The definition of the word terrorism provided in this forum is adequate but you must also think about the generation a terrorist exists
in, his motives, his enemies, study his enemies and their motives as well, create an analysis and verify how guilty both parties are. America has lost
its faith in its methods of dealing justice around the world ever since Vietnam and I believe all Americans and everyone in the world can agree on
Referring to the WWII Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing, which some people believe was an act of terror or a war crime, I believe that it was not
necessary for America to exterminate 120,000 civilians in order to prevail. The Soviet Union was at the Japanese doorstep getting ready to invade as
much as America was, the only problem America had was that the USSR had already taken out Hitler and conquered Berlin and Belgium ending the war in
Europe, destroying the Nazi regime. If Russia managed to take out Japan as well, which was only a matter of time, the victory would be Russia's to
take and celebrate and that was something America did not want. America's bombing was a hastened act in order to achieve victory before Russia and
make its mark in history, and it worked.
Another topic i would like to address is the Israeli/Arab conflict in the Middle East. First of all i would like to clarify that i am not here to
agitate anyone but only want to form a debate in order to educate myself further as well as engage in an interesting conversation. I for one, am
against the Israeli occupation of Palestine, which in my opinion, represents the very form of aggression, terrorism, immorality, and corruption.
People around the world are against America's foreign political affairs because of its support for Israel. All 350 million Arabs in the Middle East
despise the Zionist Regime and claim it to be the most extreme form of evil a human being can express in this world (notice how i labeled Israel as a
Zionist regime and not a legitimate Jewish movement). The only thing keeping the Arabs contained is the corrupt dictators and kings who were appointed
by the British Empire after WWII and are being backed up, protected, funded, and supported politically by the American government. So when you have a
world power that claims to be the ally of freedom, justice, and all that is good in this world support the worst, most corrupt, most evil agitators
and help them stay in leadership positions, your bound to have people terrorize that country. 1.5 million Iraqi's died so far in the Iraqi war which
has lasted for what? a few years? yet Saddam killed 50,000 civilians total in a time span of 30 years but he is the terrorist, he is the aggression
and the spurt of evil. Keep in mind that it was Britain, France, and America that appointed Saddam in Iraq, financed his military and political
procedures, and supported his fight against the democratic, people appointed government of Iran.
Iran, which use to be the most respected ally of the western countries, was the worst country in the Middle East in terms of its terrorism acts on its
people, inflicting fear into the hears of all Iranians to force submission and threaten all Arabian countries not to engage in a war with Israel. Yet
after the people of Iran fought desperately to take down this corrupt leadership and appoint a people representative as president, this man becomes
the source of evil in the eyes of American media and becomes a threat to all that is peaceful in this world and must be dealt with. In other words,
America does not want the Middle Eastern countries to be ruled by people for the people because it is against American international interests. Keep
in mind that even though this is from a thorough study Ive done on the internet, it still represents my point of view of the world.
Hosni Embarak, president of Egypt, is supported and protected by the American government, heck even Condoleezza Rice compliments him on hearings and
proclaim the American Egyptian relationship to be a strong, peaceful, positive relationship. 80 Million Egyptians would beg to differ. This man as
openly rigged elections, imprisoned any candidate that posed a threat, terrorized his people in order to force his law and his ideals and yet he is
supported by the American government. Why would America support a dictator like this man? because he cares about American interests in Egypt more than
Egyptian interests. King Hussein on another note, the former king of Jordan, was another dictator who was appointed by the British Empire and was
supported by the American government, the French government, and the British government. King Abdulla II, current leader of Jordan, is supported by
the western governments yet he is a corrupt leader that only thinks about his personal interests and people also have reason to believe that he can be
a western agent just like his father was. Yes, king Hussein turned out to be a British undercover agent appointed king by the British Empire in order
to enforce British policies and rules. By the way, these are facts released by the British government not so long ago.
King Farouk, a man who was supported by the western governments, was a dictator that terrorized his people and killed the Egyptian people if he had to
in order to make his point. When he was overthrown by the Egyptian republican movement, and a new president elected by the people came forth, Gamal
Abdul Nasser, that man was seen as a terrorists to the western world, a danger to the peace of the world and an imperialist, yet he was against all
imperialism and he was a socialist reformer and believed in the word of the people, his goal in life was to unite the Arabs under one banner in a
democratic government. in fact, the former Arabian Republic loved that man so much that when he stepped out of power in 1967 after the 6 day war, the
people refused to appoint any other man. All 350 million Arabs today believe that he was the greatest Arab leader during the 20th century yet he was
proclaimed to be a terrorist and a dictator by the western countries...I hope my point is clear and concise.
If you want to solve the terrorist dilemma the west is having with the east...or so says the media, you should try to support more democratic
governments in the Middle East and have them subdue criminals of their own countries rather than invading and wasting American lives in useless
operations that only lead to further hatred and further bloodshed and thus subsequently creating a generation that would think only to proceed on this
