Everyone has there opinions as to the cause so really nailing it down is for the most part impossible.
On a personal level I believe the genesis of radical islamic terrorism began in the conflict in the Middle East between Arabs and Israelis... and that
anger and hatered was transfered to the USA after years of supporting the Israelis... And what sent these radical islamic terrorists over the edge was
the first gulf war in Iraq and having the US military launching attacks on an Arab nation from a base within the most holy land of all Islam... Saudi
It is all a matter of perception... To understand the enemy you must set aside bias and try to look at the world as they see it to understand their
I am sure others will have opinions on the cause of all of this and not one will be exactly the same.
The reason we went to war in Iraq this last time for the most part is a mystery to me. I believe we acted on bad information some of it provided to us
by the Israelis, some by our own CIA.
All indications before this last war in Iraq were saying that Iraq was contained through sanctions and no fly zones, and were no threat.
Somehow that changed in a dramatic way after the attacks of 9/11.
Whatever the reason we are there now and in my opinion Iraq is not better off despite our war and the removal of Saddam, which leads me to suspect
that we have been more of a victim in this war than anything else.
Someone was pulling our strings!
All of that aside we have to find a way to make things better in the middle east and most important in Iraq now.. Though I am not sure we are the
nation to be trying to do this now.
Will Iraq be a better place one day?... who really knows, for now it does not look good.
The cause... ???
You tell me!
