    It's ugly, and I don't understand. And I don't want to.
    You don't seem to have a problem when white people are singled out for everyone's problems. Why is that?

    I agree.

    But, it doesn't really matter, because the extremists are steering the ship, and peace is the last thing they want. Until "Muslim moderates" take back the control from the extremists, then yes Islam has to be viewed with a certain amount of suspicion.
    The problem is that we helped those extremists gain power, both advertently and inadvertently. A lot of what exists today is a result of cold war era interference.

    operation ajax,
    Mosadeg was getting too chummy with the Soviets. Even with the unintended concequences, it was a good idea to keep Iran from becoming a Soviet satelite.

    our support of the Saudis
    Huh?

    Do you know what "mujahideen" means?

    Mosadeg was getting too chummy with the Soviets. Even with the unintended concequences, it was a good idea to keep Iran from becoming a Soviet satelite.
    Which has nothing to do with my point, but nice try.

    Huh?
    Our previous relationships with the Saudis only increased teh power of fundamentalism in Islam.

    Sure do. like that has anything to do with the conversation.

    What was your point? Was it the same ole lame line about how, "America bad, everybody else good"?

    So, no matter how many historical facts you're presented, it's America's fault?

    If you know what it means, then you should realize what it has to do with the conversation.

    What was your point? Was it the same ole lame line about how, "America bad, everybody else good"?
    Of course not. My point was presented in the post which you asked me to expand on.


    So, no matter how many historical facts you're presented, it's America's fault?
    So no matter how much evidence is presented that our involvement has affected the current state of affairs, you still think it's all the evul muslims fault?

    Much of the **** we did came back and bit us on the ass. That's a fact. We've had a shortsighted foreign policy for decades. Always thinking about the "enemy at hand" and never looking at how our actions today will lead to future problems. **** it, we can just push that off on the next generation, right?
