America and terrorism

OK chaps exactly why did the terrorists fly planes into the towers? Because you Americans are all nice guys? Think about it guys, the war in the middle east is making things worse and not better. Who really cares what the rag heads do and why? Oil? Thousands and not hundreds of people have lost their lives so far and do you think this will endear their relatives to your people?

Check back on the first sentence. Why commit suicide and kill a lot of people? Im not against america and a lot of my friends are american expats.

This is about Osama and Bush and not the general American people, so why get involved?

Billions of Dollars later and no further down the road, it is another Vietnam but witthout a true cause.

But I want you to answer the first question, why did the target America and not London or Amsterdam or Berlin

ERIC.

W/ all due respect that is probably the dumbest post I have ever read... No one can be that stupid, so I have to assume you are trolling.

Don't believe everything you think

Not at all. I am simply looking for the reason for this tragedy.

About 28% of the folks in America still believe that it was due only because the mean ol' folks in the Middle East just hate Americans, hate our way of life and want to instill THEIR beliefs on the entire world.

That group tends to believe the we contributed no fuel to the fire that started this never ending conflagration.

With all respect to you Jayhawk, I think its a sensible question and one that has not been broached so far in this terrible episode.

There are probably more than 100 threads here that deal--some in great detail--w/ your question. I probably have several hundred posts on the subject myself! And I'm not about to relive ancient history because you don't want to read.

I'll use a little reverse logic on you:
Do you think things in the middle east would be much better right now had those planes never crashed into the WTC? Osama's own admission was that he didn't expect the results he got. I'd say it was a huge miscalculation on his part to get it done and a huge miscalculation on our part thinking invading Iraq was a wise thing to do.

Yes, but he said it while he was dancing. He fully expected the Afghanistan invasion, but felt Iraq might be too much to hope for (although he did predict it).
