You need to do your research, Operation Gladio was exactly what your saying they never do.
Gladio has been accused of trying to influence policies through the means of "false flag" operations: a 2000 Italian Parliamentary Commission report from the Olive Tree left-wing coalition concluded that the strategy of tension used by Gladio had been supported by the United States to "stop the PCI (Italian Communist Party), and to a certain degree also the PSI (Italian Socialist Party), from reaching executive power in the country".
Of course Wikipedia says it is alleged but it was declassified so I'm not sure what that is about except that Wiki even says that gulf of tonkin not happening is alleged so we can take that wit ha grain of salt.
Communists ALWAYS makes such claims....of course Communists never start wars... I guess that's why the Vietnam war never occurred, or any number of wars with the backing, and training from Communist nations, and groups....
It is obvious you need to do more research in history... Communism has murdered more people than all world wars, and other "non-Communist" conflicts the world over....
BTW, I am not saying the U.S. and some others have not tried to stop Communists from spreading. Socialists/Communists have also been trying to "CHANGE" the U.S. and other countries into Socialist dictatorships....

Islam is the enemy of my civilization. By their own words and deeds, I, you, and every non-muslim is to be converted or killed and Islam to be dominant over all. How hard is that for non-muslims to understand. You all labor under the notion that Islam is a valid religious system that worships the God of the Bible. You are all wrong and it is getting people killed by the billions.
I do not make up jihad, or wage jihad, or promote jihad. I know what jihad is and just how important jihad is to the spread of Islam.
To diminish in any way the crucial importance of jihad to all muslims is, again, just what the muslims want you to do.
You see, in case you haven't noticed, and don't tell anyone lest they call you crazy, but we are in the middle of a Jihad War. Shhh.
No. Islam is not the enemy of your civilization. By their own words and deeds, I, you, and every other non-muslim is to be accepted as a creation of God (Allah) and to respected as much in the hope that this person can one day become a brother/sister of the believers, IN PEACEFUL TERMS.
I have grown up in an Islamic household, and though I no longer see myself as religious (I now see all religions as unnecessary in this day and age but fully respect those who practise in peace), I KNOW EXACTLY what Islam is all about, and what Jihad is. YOU couldn't be more wrong, and if you want to challenge me on that i have read the Quran 3 times and every message relayed by the Prophet Mohammed and I would gladly attempt to straighten your warped views.

The bombers blow themselves up in markets because Islam is far from a unified religion. There are factions that hate each other almost as much as they hate the US.
Look up Shia and Sunni and read about the violence between them since the death of Mohammed. It's basically been a fight over succession.
On top of that, the culture in the Middle East is a tribal culture. The entire concept of schedules, borders, countries, governments were introduced to them by the West.
They believe in personal and family alliances and in general have little to no allegiance to a government.
For a better understanding, read Islam: What went wrong. I forgot the author but he is a Muslim scholar who details the downfall from a global empire to the present day. Ironically, he cites the suppression of women as one of the leading causes of the downfall. If you don't let half of your smartest people contribute to society, that's what happens. It's a good read.

Im a little confused about the whole Suicide Bombing thing. I understand Suicide Bombings on Hard Targets against an opponent in war (Kamakazi - Japan), but I don't see the logical link between Suicide Bombings on Soft Targets that are on your own populace.
