I was listening to the news today and they were talking about bombs going off in Iraq and how everyone blames the US for not protecting them better. Now I understand that we could have more forces there and blah blah but what about accepting responsibility for your own people? How about helping the troops to locate the terrorists, giving them leads and information, instead, they just play the blame game and refuse to help at all. It's quite pathetic..

At some point I know I will be forced to blow on this topic. I'll just sit back and see some of the responses until I can't hold back any longer. But to be honest there is a certain amount of validity to some of the feeling out there. Some based on our arrogance and refusal to understand or respect the culture of others.

I am so sick of it, to MS. Yeah.....like we are the ones that start it all....Place 10 year olds with bombs someplace public to blow up (Israel, couple of days ago). And don't forget we set up that bomb that blew in Spain.....The biggest, we blew up the world trade center so Bin Lauden could take credit.

People like to blame others for their own faults and it's usually someone that is trying to help them.

BLAH!

I get that part of it for sure, but there is another side to it.

give me, give me, give me . It is all over the World. Look at Spain .Just days after the deadliest terrorist attack in Spain's history, the country's opposition Socialist Party swept Sunday's elections, promising to pull the country's troops out of Iraq. Some worry that the Socialist's upset win represents a victory for terrorism. Are we are loosing war on terror ?

Traveler, I am very excepting of others traditions and culture. I find them fascinating....and I also respect them for standing by what they believe. I think some of them are offended that we don't believe in their cultures and religion and therefore feel the need to kill every last fcn' one of us to show us that we should succumb to them!

About time we are respected for our beliefs and religion and left alone.

USA as I feel anymore is DAMED IF YOU DO, or DAMED IF YOU DON'T

We obviously have other intentions in IRAQ , not just pertaining to free IRAQ and the people.

But if the people want to be liberated they have to getthe same f-in we get here by the government, wich is alot better than the f-in the were getting under Saddam.

What we don't realize sometimes, that from birththey are subjected to propoganda from day 1, that they are to hate us.

Again, we are dammed if you do, or dammed if you don't.
If we stay there, we will have problems of course, they will say how awful we are if we leave we will have problems, they will say we did not protect them finish the job, of course.

Who are the one bombing there own buildings right now ? They are.... (as MONEYSHOT said)

Reminds me of Detroit-L.A. RUIN YOUR OWN NEIGHBORHOOD and BLAME OTHERS FOR IT.

Anymore I could care less what happens there, if we leave, stay, or just nuke that area, because it is ridiculous, and USA is not ever going to win in this situation....

For CHRIST sakes, these friggen people have been bombing, shooting, killing, fighting each other since the beginning of time ! They know nothing else, we cannot expect them to understand our Idea of civilization. They have such a mindset that is not natural for us.

As long as there is freedom and no fear of a dictator type of soceity, we will never be left alone....Everyone in the world wants what most of us take for granted....Freedom!
I personally think that as long as we thrieve in business and freedom terrorist will never stop....Because it`s what they all want......

Just my .02
