    Al Qaeda and Taliban and many Iraqi resistance groups make the case they are fighting against western "crusaders" who invaded their land. Would that be fighting for freedom or not?

    But if people WANT a theocratic system, do they not have the freedom to choose that system?

    REally so all the woman under the Taliban wanted to be forced into being beggars if they were widowed?

    Your kidding right?


    Fighting for the "freedom" of a small group to oppress a larger group is not "freedom fighting". Sorry.,

    I answered it in the rest of my post. It was rhetorical.

    I'm not at all sure why you have trouble with this, other than your innate inability to call a spade a spade qhwen dealing with Muslim extrmists.

    They are fighting for the power to establish oppressive thocracies -- especially in the case of AQ and the Taliban

    Are oppressive theocracies examples of 'freedom'?

    If not, then your question is answered.

    I did. This is not "freedom fighting"


    Did people WANT to live under the Taliban barbarity? What percentage?

    Freedom to the west and what is classified as 'free' is VERY different to what Muslims classify as free. There are a thousand different interpretation of freedom, what makes your version so correct?

    I won't deny that but why is it so hard for you to accept that western soldiers on muslim land occupying it has a role to play
