Quoting thehandsom

I was not trying to justify the terrorism at all.

But when your own goverment´s actions are directly or indirectly responsible of thousands and thousands of deaths in the world, you dont show the same reaction and then, you fail to see what the result is.

You might have a huge Jewish lobby in the states. But in the end, you are supporting Israel which has been using your weapons, your intelligence, your money and your protection in the UN and keeps killing Palestinians. 

How can you say that you are NOT responsible of the deaths of the Palestinians? Of course you are..

When you say ´ah ours is a war but theirs is terrorism´ is hugely misleading and also kind of justification from your end for your wars. 

Can you tell me what the difference is? (yours wars are killing many people and mainly for your ecenomical interests)


In the end, you wars are feeding the terrorism in this world and the reality is that your wars are responsible much more deaths than ´the terrorism as a whole´ ever will be.


You´re assuming that you know what my feelings and opinions are about the war in Iraq, probably because I´m in the USA, and of course, you all know what Americans are like and what they think. I´m no more responsible for actions of my government than you are for the actions of yours. My power ends with my vote in the elections, which does not always result in the win of my candidate. I do not think the war in Iraq is justified, I hope Bush gets tried as a  war criminal, and I´m probably as outraged at what´s happening as you are. But I do think that war differs from terrorism in that you know who your enemy is, your intended target are not civilians (although they are mostly affected and all too many die), and you identify yourself as being at war. Targeting innocent civilians, who are not involved in any way in military actions, who do not have the opportunity to fight back and who don´t even know you´re coming, is an act of terrorism and incredible cowardice, no matter how justified you feel in it.

Quoting CANLI

 raq has nothing to do with 11/9,so its not true,let me remind you it was the weapon of mass destruction excuse which wasnt there.


I agree with you on that one, I think it´s one of the most shameful events in American history. I was referring to the war in Afghanistan when I said it was in response to the 9/11.
