Like I said on Starz's post, 2976 American people lost their lives on 9/11 but 48,644 Afghan and 1,690,903 Iraqi and 35000 Pakistani people paid the ultimate price for a crime they did not commit.

Who are the real terrorists?

I have seen some similar numbers except for 1,690,903 Iraqis. Where did you get that one from?

Opium.
But this may a question better asked of President Barack Obama, who kept it going for 8 years, longer than any commander in chief.

Because the US wanted to go to war with Afghans, Pakistanis, Iranians and Iraqis and hoped people wouldn't know the difference?

The sad part some people DO NOT know the difference it seems.

Or they are so overly paranoid that they think widespread mass murder is justified just as long as it doesn't happen to them.

On the other hand when something like this happens people cry and they want their blood, on their land.

Perhaps America just has to take it...they certainly have given it out.

The Rules of Acquisition, rule #34: "War is good for business."

I just wonder, why isn't anyone asking, what happened to the congressional hearings about the money spent on black projects... They suddenly never took place, when a war broke out, in September 2001. Oh, right, the only computers to hold the numbers were located in the exact spot in Pentagon, where the cruise missile hit. Oops... I meant plane, my bad.

If we truly cared about ending terrorism, we would not be buddies with Saudi Arabia. Not only were Saudis largely the actors in the 9/11 attacks, they are the source of modern Islamic fundamentalist ideology, that which fuels most Islamic terrorism today.

It's a vicious cycle, kid.

Sorry for calling you that, you are one of the brightest minds I have ever witnessed, but you are still lacking in experience this time around (perhaps your previous lives have been more interesting than mine). Maze will scorch me for saying "all Abrahamic religions are the same" and he would be correct to do so. But we do share the same roots, so we are not completely lost at trying to understand each other, over the boundaries. Now, I hate to break your pretty image, that has been fed to you, since you've been a small child, but...

Saudis... Well, arrogant pricks with towels on their heads and lots of money to spend on hookers, cocaine and extremely fast cars. Terrorists? Well, yes and no. Do you know what the difference between a privateer and a pirate is? They both do the same exact thing, pillaging ships, killing the crew and obtaining the valuables... Do you? Privateers work for a government, they do their dirty bidding. They are mercenaries. They use the same tactics and most of them are (notice the term, it's not "were" - it's "are") ex-pirates.

Let's see if you can put certain pieces together, on your own, kid.

No need to talk down to me, Marko.

I understand what you are getting at, but one can recognise the problem with Islamic terrorism while also acknowledging the atrocities committed by the West. I'm not implying that Americans are innocent. We aren't. Islamic terrorism was hardly a thing before the West's intervention in the Middle East. But that doesn't mean it's now become its own separate issue.

The main reason is to maintain the unobstructed flow of oil to the rest of the world at relatively "free market" prices, not highly inflated prices due to supply restrictions (or monopolies).

I believe you missed a few countries there, Vic.

Reasons for GWOT:
*Pax Americana
*Control of population through fear/unconstitutional laws
*Central banking
*Petrodollars
*Defense budget increased regularly
*MIC/CIC $$$
*Poppies
*Pipelines
*Minerals & gems?

Over the last few decades. The US has been primarily attacked by Muslim Fundamentalists. Origin? Who cares. Tis a matter of Belief and not Geography. Tis a matter of Shariah Law, the attempt at a caliphate. I tend to agree in part. Though the details in this one kind of do matter.
