Lets give Bush a break here - the British Empire fucked the middle east up (I am a Brit). Bush just stuck his hideous oar in later on.
The only thing the West did wrong was bring a lot of wealth into a region of the world that was still stuck in the 7th century.
The Middle East was fucked up long before Bush was even though of.
"The comparison game is always a good way to make a 1st level statement on a subject. It's graphic, it's easy to understand. But the thing are way more complex than that."
The wars in Iraq are not wars against Islam. They are about oil, money, power and control over the region. I'm not defending America, the war in Iraq is wrong. But to say it's a war on muslims is to ignore most of the rest of the current events in the world.
I can't see how anyone can compare war zones to France. That's just nonsense and sounds like you are trying to justify terrorism.
No one is saying the West hasn't fucked up a lot of the world. But that is almost irrelevant when looking at innocent people gunned down in the middle of a peaceful city.
It's all wrong. Killing is wrong. But massacring innocent people is beyond comprehension and simply terrorism. I don't know what the reason, it's terrorism. Period.
Go hold Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz accountable for war crimes, I am all for it, but don't mix up the issues.
Jihad is synonymous with imperialism. Maybe they didn't do it by establishing international 'borders' but it's imperialism no less.
There is a reason there are 1.2 billion muslims across the globe. The did this at mercy of the sword. Not by knocking at your door and saying 'have you heard the good news'?
The search for the terrorist is stopped tonight , do you find this normal ?
For all you conspiracy cunts looking at the sickening video of the cop getting shot...even to my untrained eye if you draw a straight line from the gun barrel when the shot occurs, it's not even pointing at the poor bloke's head. Probably a shot to the upper body/neck region and probably bled out underneath him.
Muslim shooter = entire religion guilty
Black shooter = entire race guilty
White shooter = mentally troubled lone wolf

@lowimpakt, your post has low impact.

- The guys who killed soldiers in Canada were described as lone wolf criminals, not Muslim representatives.i_monk
- Saying this is just as ignorant lowmonospaced
- And I'm pretty sure their Muslim affiliation had something to do with this incident.monospaced
- of course it's a sweeping statement but maybe if you listen to news from a different perspectivelowimpakt
You should read about this guy... T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia). I just finished his biography.
A lot of stuff goes back to his actions in the early 40's, when he roused the arabs to over throw the Ottoman empire.
Of course Britain and its national companies like BP were there to help develop the oil fields from Iraq, Saudi etc etc...
Also a good read:
