It seems to me that before we got ourselvs into the war in Iraq the problem of "terrorism" was simple. What did the "terrorists" want..only 2 things. They wanted us to get our troops out of Saudi Arabia (wich is Islams holiest land..if im not mistaken) and to stop our unconditional support for Isreil. What I dont understand about that is ....its soo simple . Why didnt we just do it? It seems to me (although I dont know exactly where I stand on this issue) that the United States would be better off if it just left the middle east alone and let the United Nations do its job. Its too complicated to be sticking your nose into. You have Isreal who is ruthless in its attacks on any other people than its own.http://www.waroffice.us/israel.htm I mean seriously. I heard on BBC news yesterday that Isreali solders shot a middle school girl dead..with 20 bullets . Then you have the other great problem of the middle east..Islam. I think Islam means peace? I know its ignorant to generalize so I wont....Islam isnt the problem, the problem is fundamental Muslims. If you compare fundamentle anything(christianity for one) yeah they can be annoying. Like they will preach you to death..but fundamental Muslims, thats a different story. I dont think I need to get into that. One big issue that I dont understand is why does America support Isreal? Its a very developed country and can stand up for itself. Does anyone have any insight?
