Let me make a few salient points for you so there is no misunderstanding of "who" caused what.Originally Posted by ecofarm
The U.S. established a military presence in Saudi Arabia. Some people considered this blasphemous and detonated bombs at said base. Who caused what? Doesn't matter. This is a cause and effect.
Some terrorists allegedly destroyed the Twin Towers. The U.S. retaliated on the suspected originating parties. Who caused what? Doesn't matter. This is cause and effect.
There is a cause (or multiple causes) for each and every effect. The question you need to ask is why would someone want to attack the U.S.? OBL has said very clearly for his entire campaign what his reasons were and it certainly had nothing to do with our way of life. As I said earlier, this has absolutely nothing to do with justification and simply identifies cause and effect. It would do you well to take an impartial look at these events as undue emotion clouds your clarity.
