Actually Muslims have murdered innocent people at work, on their holidays, doing their shopping, eating in restaurants, on airplanes, cruise ships, going school, waiting at bus stops,etc. What "corporate interests" are you referring to?Uncle sam only labels the Muslims that endanger US corporate interests as "terrorists" and put the bounties exclusively on their turbans.
Perhaps a more specific example could be used, using specific data.For example, if you live in a mineral rich country where your dictator signs an agreement w/Exxon to drill all over the place and only give a portion of the profits to the dictator and his family and none to the people, and you rebel against it, then uncle sam will brand you a "terrorist" since your actions impede Exxon.
You just make it up as you go along, I see.However, if you fight for the dictator, you will branded a "rebel" since your actions help Exxon.
Compared to Hasan? Death penalty (for both)?
My point was regarding the excuses that are offered. If an American commits this sort of atrocity he is thought to be insane. No such excuse would ever be attributed to a Muslim for doing the same thing.Ecofarm: All excuses are always made. Some get more attention and some are more relevant. See also: 'blowback'.
Did you ever hear of anyone suggesting that any Islamic terrorist was insane?
Fact, that deserves an apology
Fact, it does not matter what was the reasons for these killings
Not a fact, but I do think that President Obama knew a lot more than you and I did about this case from the media. President Obama has sources that we do not have and he might have known a lot more before he made his apology.
Now an opinion but something that is just as factual to me, it doesn't matter what the circumstances were, an apology for the loss of lives was the least Obama could do IMHO.
