Why do terrorists want to destroy Americans so badly?

It’s all a matter of perspective, isn’t it just? Let’s look at it from a new perspective.

  • Let’s imagine Iran had military bases in 30 American states.
  • Imagine Saudi Arabia interfered in our international relations whenever it was convenient for them.
  • Imagine Turkey sold or outright gave advanced weaponry to our enemies.
  • Imagine the UAE gave 4 billion dollars a year in unreciprocated aid to the Soviets, uh, I mean the Russians of course!
  • Imagine Afghanistan alluded that they could use nuclear weapons against us once a month as proof that we should be doing what they want us to do.
  • Imagine Iraq had been a primary factor in most of the wars of the last 100 years.

Now imagine that you knew the first fucking thing about world history and you might be able to imagine that the list above conforms pretty directly the the US of A’s behavior on the playground of international politics.

You might even come to the conclusion that the correct question is–

“Why do resistance fighters want to destroy Americans so badly?”

But that’s no fun to ask. It answers itself. And when life is obvious it becomes harder and harder not to ask the implied questions about yourself, Americans. Let’s do everything to avoid it. They won’t be any fun to ask either.
