What are you referring to? In the 1990's when Bin Laden made his decision to turn against the United States, what was it for? In terms of tangible events, first and foremost was the rejection of assistance during the Gulf War and the presence of Western troops in the Arabian Gulf to repel Saddam's troops and expel his forces from Kuwait. Though US forces were invited by all the regional governments, and later left as per existing timetables and legitimate requests Osama bin Laden and his group made it incumbent upon themselves to right this perfidious wrong. But what about his Fatwas? What does he right about? In 1996 when he lists the countries that the "Zionist-Crusader" alliance has wrought massacres in he selects "Tajakestan, Burma, Cashmere, Assam, Philippine, Fatani, Ogadin, Somalia, Erithria, Chechnia and in Bosnia-Herzegovina".No, it was "America is my enemy so I'm attacking my enemy." We rain death from the skies on innocent people in these countries. Would your response to that be any different? If someone bombed Houston, would you really care what their motivation was?
The list is ludicrous if you are trying to create a tally of US crimes.
In Tajikistan the US had almost nothing to do with the civil war, and in fact was an incredibly complex affair involving the nascent Russian federation, the Tajik central government, Islamist groups in Afghanistan, and Tajik renegade Islamist militias. In Burma the US has long opposed the leading military junta and its crackdown on all dissidents and minorities, including the small Muslim population. In the Philippines the US has provided assistance to the legitimate government in its suppression of a brutal Islamist separatist movement support which was tangential in its quasi-dictatorial days, and substantial in its days as a democracy and has assisted in dialogue approaches with regard to Moro self-determination. In Malaysia the US has no role, but Bin Laden dislikes the non-Islamist central government. In Ogaden the US supported Somalia, the Muslim combatant in its war against Christian Ethiopia. Eritrea is a horrid country that the US had very little to do with. Chechnya is self-explanatory since I suppose we all know it involved Russia not the US, and that the US has provided some vocal criticism and condemnation of Russian activities. In Bosnia US led intervention saved the country, and has earned the US eternal gratitude in Kosovo, Albania, and Bosnia all Muslim countries in Europe.
What does he say of these 'events' though?
"All of this and the world watch and hear, and not only didn't respond to these atrocities, but also with a clear conspiracy between the USA and its' allies and under the cover of the iniquitous United Nations, the dispossessed people were even prevented from obtaining arms to defend themselves."
Clearly as I showed above this is ludicrous. Hell, bin Laden sanctioned attacks against Australia, targets in Indonesia, and foreign targets in general why? Because of intervention to end the atrocities in East Timor.
Both of his 'epistles' read like a forum conspiracy theory as seen through the prism of a fundamentalist. Yes he sees the US as his enemy (past tense obviously) but he sees it and his objectives for fantastically different reasons in terms of both reasonableness, legitimacy, and morality, than most of our opponents in the region.
