Not ours.”

Which would have been an acceptable policy had we not actively fomented regime change in that country, providing cia and military support in concert with other nations to destabilize the current government.
Providing billions of dollars and personnel would qualify as “our problem”.

A good portion the current conditions in the MENA have some uncomfortable truths attached. Without going into that any further, the realities on the ground are a humanitarian crisis of considerable proportion.

It has rolled through numerous tribes and countries in an almost non-stop mode and created further probems since each side tended to add all who were non-Muslim people to their enemy’s list.

Let’s focus on the most obvious one. WTC #7. It fell directly down at gravity speed for no apparent reason after a countdown. How did Muslim Terrorists manage to rig that building, while avoiding notice by the many banks and insurance companies tenanted in the building, as well as the obviously much higher security of the local, state and federal Emergency Management command posts and the local CIA branch office, also tenanted there? And how did they organize that countdown?

Forget about Mohammad Attas’ plane crash proof passport. Forget about the fact that half the hijackers are still alive. Don’t even ask what was so fascinating about “My Pet Goat”. Wonder instead who rigged building 7.

There stands your culprit.

The thought that America might have enemies after killing a million people overseas to further a repressive domestic political agenda is hardly surprising. What is surprising that this SEEMS to be unexpected.

Unexpected by who?

Teach science and humanity to children and you will have a happy world based on reason. Teach that muslims and christians and jews can never see eye to eye and – surprise – no one is at peace.
