If it was a hypothetical, which, again, it clearly was not, it was an exceedingly silly one, because it has nothing whatsoever to do with actual history. You might as well have said "why have we been nuking them into glass once a year, every year, since 1945? Do you think that may be why they hate us?" It would have as much relevance to anything as what you actually did post.
I'm well aware of what "lesson" you were referring to, and I responded to it then. But if our foreign policy was correct, and they attacked us for that foreign policy, then I'd say they're the ones deserving OUR scorn, not the other way around. See, when you try to get too cute, you often prove too much.BTW, the history lesson I was referrig to in that post was directed at WWII and why Japan attacked us, but the under-tone as to why radical Islam and Muslim extremists hate us so could stem from the same thing...U.S. foreign policy both governing bodies disagreed with. That was the point I was attempting to address. But again, we can save that for another debate.
