    To answer the actual question: God no. We are, at times, assholes though, take that as you will.

    Neither of which are terrorist actions, just a crappy and misguided war.

    You just had to throw that in there.

    I don't think we are terrorists, but I would imagine the terrorists think we are. It's kind of the way that thing works.

    I'm pretty sure most of them see us as western, imperialist heathens rather than terrorists, as their great enemy standing between them and their glorious oppressive, sharia fueled wet dream. Not the same thing, but you're right that they see us as the enemy, doesn't change that they're scum.

    I think we all need to take a good look at Libya now and Libya before we adjusted it. You
    know, when Qaddaffi was running it. Before we Terrorized the Nation. Good money in
    War, even Terror Wars. The USA War-Making machine is immensely profitable, just
    needs constant, permanent War and that is what they/we do. We market, promote,
    initiate, create, and instigate chaos, mayhem, destruction and death as a National
    Policy a/k/a, Terror War. We are the Terrorists.

    I can't tell if this is sarcastic or not.

    Pretty sure the people we kill don't see it that way. To them, their violence against us is just as moral as you think ours is against them. There is no one who will allow violence against themselves because someone else says it's justified.

    And why should we be willing to accept hypocrisy from ourselves? Don't you strive to be better than that?
