I am not sure I get you here. Although I don't agree with the previous poster's position regarding ICBM's, I am missing something in your response.

9/11 happened BEFORE this incident. It happened BEFORE Gitmo, Abu Ghraib, before Iraq. How can it POSSIBLY be a response to how ugly we are now?

Actually it is a lesson to the entire world that Americans are so arrogant they'll kill rather than accept responsibility for their own actions.
Shot dead for throwing a shoe at people who invaded his country means there is no point protesting about americans. Becoming a terrorist is the only way you can fight back.
It seems many americans think this murder was justified. Sleep sound in the knowledge that any terrorist reprisals will be even more justified.
Pretty difficult to fight a war on terror when the terrorists have a better moral code than the US army isn't it?
Better do some reading "I can read". Al Qaeda is killing people for even lesser reasons. And before you reply that "they are only defending themselves" or something similarly foolish, consider this: Then why are they killing Iraqi civilians? More importantly, why are they INTENTIONALLY killing Iraqi civilians?

Although I don't agree with ANY war, they have been fought for far less valid reasons than the one in Iraq. It is unfortunate that someone from the UK should have such a negative opinion of America and Americans as you do. This is especially so given the fact that MANY of us feel that the UK is our only TRUE ally.
It hard fo' Resles to envision any 'less valid' reasons fo' the "War in Iraq" than the several the Bush administration and its "allies" have already given - and continue to give. We have a "professional army", which concept deflates the teary-eyed metaphor of American boys far from home who jus' pullin' the trigger because they lonesome fo' they mamas (that the same thought went through Pat Tillman's brain befo' the bullet did.)
Likewise the idea of the American soldier as mindless automaton, trained to a razor sharp skill as a modern-day warrior competes with you metaphor of them as homesick boys and girls in armored vehicles.
Here the way Resles see it,(an' I suspect this the definitive summary): This particular war, although they all are fought fo' profit one way or another, is a Chamber of Commerce war. When George Bush say he gonna "spend some political capital," he simply vocalizin' what Amercian merchants want to hear. When America goes to war a handful of business owners profit ridiculously. That crap about Saddam Hussein violatin' UN mandates is beyond ludicrous; hell we don' even pay our dues to the United Nations - the southern christian trash think the next anti-christ come from there - why anybody think we care what the UN mandate? Did I not get the memo?
Many of the US general staff officers who have come from West Point and the Air Force Academy are lookin' forward to profitable careers in the private sector and participation in a real shooting war make their financial futures look much brighter. It encourages folks at the highest levels of the Pantygon and congress to create conflicts long enough to acquire a resume'. The US military fight this war not because they told to, they fight it because they have to. A few years ago the military look like it going to disappear and now look at them; "We back!!!"
Even the average enlistee is looking at lifetime medical and dental, a government financed education and lumps of cash - not the kind of money we've just paid the other side in the recent conflict to not shoot at us - substantial cash. Further, that average enlistee in this new and shiny professional army has free will. He is not some dumb cluck jus' doin' what he tol', he a vicious and confused serial masturbator who cooped up with a lot of other fellas in a solidly homosexual context where blankets hung between hammocks separate one boy's spunk from another as they fondle their laptops and dream about the little woman back home, who diddlin' Jody as it turn out cause she not prepared to baby-sit two fat kids by herself fo' a year and a half widdout a lil' you-know.
You got some other picture of the nobility of combat life it jus' mean you drinkin' too much and need to sit you ass down at the VA. Cause that what bind us together: the shared knowledge of the complete pointlessness of what we done. "Service" my hairy Irish ass.

The British "ally" thing was only gonna fly until it wasn't profitable fo' them anymore. The British understand why the special services are deployed in their subways with machine guns and dogs and any American see the black suited troops in Lafayette Park understand it not "terrorists" they trained to subdue. The capitalists in both places created their own black armored, video-tapin' po-lice force to control, us (well, me, not you, you already drunk the Kool-Aid.

Besides, Pennsylvania is trashed. Multi-mile piles of coal tailings and slums upon slums upon slums, you need to clean up you own house befo' you go trottin' off to celebrate the sheer smell of acres of man-meat in their battle-hardened hardness.
Our military just wasted the nation's money, and continues to do so, because your pride in our fightin' men and women turns out to not be insufficient to protect us against the terrible onslaught of... shoes.

Before 9/11/01 we were involved in all kinds of underhanded evil in the mideast.

9/11/01 type terror was what our government has been dishing out to other nations for years.

We have B52s, B-1's, B-2's to kill with we do not have to hijack airliners.

We are a nation of professional bombers and terrorists......yet look how we squealed on 9/11/01 when we got some of our own medicine back into our ugly face.

Start counting the nations we have attacked and bombed over the years, we have a body count in the millions. Count the bodies, count just the children we have blown apart with our bombs..we lost count long ago.

We are not the good Guys...far from it.

Better moral code? You have got to be shiiting me terrorist. Murdering innocent people by strapping bombs to retarded women and detonating them remotely? Murdering gays and lesbians? Treating women like dogs? Your a class act Haji. But then again what do you know.

Bring it terrorist boy. Let me see...make a throwing motion at a passing armed convoy where the method of contact are IEDs and small arms hit and run tactics. And you think that was smart? Come throw a shoe at us and see what happens. Shoot first, apologize twice later. Sorry, sorry. Ooops.

You've killed way more civillians in Iraq than saddam ever did and made the country far more violent and dangerous.

Most of the 'terrorists' are fighting to get their country back yet you have the arrogance and stupidity to call them insurgents. You guys are the insurgents, they actually live there.

When al quaida come anywhere near killing as many innocents as you do you can then maybe START to try and claim the moral high ground. Until then you can't. You have far too much blood on your hands to claim to be the good guys.

Each President inherits all the unfinished disasters and hate generated for the USA by the previous adminstrations BLUNDERS.

Carter had to eat the hate the US Government had earned in the Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Nixon years in IRAN. We earned what we got in IRAN.

As ignorant american losers laugh at the death of this IRAQI.....they will get to laugh at the death of the NEXT US soldier. Perpetuating evil is real funny to ignorant americans.

We laughed at our bombs destroying targets in IRAQ..........but we were not laughing so hard when we got or EVIL returned on 9/11/01 were we.
Did it ever occur to you that we are more evil than they are?

The USA is just making everything worse..a nation of losers...plain and simple.

You're living in a dream world Haji. We have ROE, your terrorist friends do not. We don't strap bombs to cars and blow up innocent civilians. We don't store bombs and weapons in schools and churches. Get with the program terrorist. But then again you are all about spreading false propaganda, which is why you and Rattledouche are here on this forum in the first place. Just admit it, you don't know shiite, just like your terrorist leader Rattle Bin Laden. Strap a bomb to your chest if you think you're all that.
