    Can you give a quote other than a neo-con that said it?

    Anyways, CNN this morning had poll results from the same people that did this poll and found that:
    20% of Americans think Socialism is better than Capitalism
    20% of Americans think we have made contact with alien life
    20% of Americans believe Obama wasn't born in the United States

    and then there is this:

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    I don't have access to top secret information, but anybody other than the hopelessly naive would understand that we have intelligence operations that operate throughout this region and the world. Just because they don't want democracy doesn't mean they welcome dictators who rape and torture innocent people.

    So you're saying we didn't install Efrain Montt? Well, this says we did. So do numerous other sources.

    Oh, we didn't install Noriega? He was officially contracted by the CIA in the 60s and still worked for them in 1983 when he rose to power. Yes we ousted him, but he was working for us when he became President... you don't think that's proof that there was direct US involvement? And you're saying the CIA turned a blind eye to his drug trafficking? We proposed paying him one million dollars to kill Nicaraguan insurgents for us. That's a little more than turning a blind eye.

    Right, there's no proof of direct involvement. Only documents proving that the government was actively trying to prevent Allende from having power and massive financial interest from ITT who alledgedly funded the coup in part. And Nixon said this 3 years before the coup: "Make the economy scream [in Chile to] prevent Allende from coming to power or to unseat him." You can believe what you want to, I think the picture is pretty clear.

    We only know so much. If America has consistently backed ruthless dictators for strategic reasons, they are certainly doing the same thing now. We engage in these tactics and the people who are affected by them lash back at us. That's how it works. There's no excuse for killing innocent people, which is why I find Bin Laden's actions to be unacceptable, but it's also why I am quick to condemn the United States for their unethical actions. You willingly ignore the latter and that's why your opinions are not credible.

    You're right, that makes it ok to kill them and declare the land ours. And hell, most of them will die from disease... the diseases that the Europeans brought over with them during westward expansion. But that's not our fault either. If they didn't want to get sick, they shouldn't have been on the land we wanted.

    Anyways this is a very good description of the Arabization of the lands conquered by Islam.
    Yes, we did force conversions. Most of that information is off-topic, but we definitely forced Native Americans to "Americanize" themselves and even had the official Office of Indian Affairs, founded in 1824, that handled such matters.

    You can rewrite history, but I regret going to all this trouble to try to show you how naive and ignorant your statements are. You won't be persuaded by truth. You think that America has never installed a puppet dictator, Muslim terrorists are driven solely by religion and have no political basis for their hatred of us, and you even believe that taking land from the Native Americans was justified. I don't know if you're naive or ignorant, but your comments display a nice mix of the two.

    Saddam Hussein held power for 30 years. The Taliban has many supporters in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Who's the Muslim cat that runs the show in Sudan? He's being propped up by the Chinese.

    It totally amazes me, how people try to justify terrorist attacks on the United States that result in the death of American citizens.

    Because you started with this nonsense,

    and now your on,

    "Were those murderers killing people for religious reasons, or because they were just dirt bag criminals who killed people for whatever rationale they had at the time?"

    The fact is that you seem to have the problem of making stupid comments, with nothing to back them up but your own prejudice.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I'm only responding to the comments others have made, so perhaps I'm not the one making stupid comments.

    Using criminal behavior in the United States to justify terrorist attacks isn't a real bright statement.

    Would you care to answer the question? Or, do you still maintain that Muslims are more tolerant of other religions?
