Yeah, yeah... I get it. The US is in a war for world hegemony and sacrificing lives for oil. Your worldview is clear. Just to be sure:
Do you consider the victims of terrorism to be collateral damage in a war for world hegemony?
Is the US worse than terrorists, because the US does it for oil, whereas terrorists do it for "revenge" and nationalism?
Why do you leave out ideology as a vector, while including revenge/blowback and nationalism?
