True enough. I was deeply saddened, for example, over the 9/11 events, like everyone else, but I am honest enough to admit that the Americans brought it on themselves. How many lives have their soldiers disrupted in countless other countries around the world. Why-ever would they be surprised when someone has the gumption to return the "favour"?

Yes. It never dons on them that they created their own image.

Eisenhower and Dulles conspired the United Fruit overthrow for their own gains. Then we have the audacious U2 spy plane flyovers where they were caught spying.
Then we have the provocation by the US military of the eastern USSR where they taunted them and that caused a disaster. In this one they used commercial airliner flyway, and when a US military plane flew in proximity of the Korean airlines KAL007, the USSR radar picked it up as one plane, then it showed the two planes deverging. So the controller scrambled a jet fighter to shoot it down and they did, meddling again. If the US hadn't been playing their games, many would be living today.
A similar disaster, really murder, occured in the Iranian airline downing. The US had an enquiry and they found none of their people blameable for their actions, in fact some were promoted. An independant did a research and found the frigate that fired the missle had disobeyed orders by his commander not to get in closer into Iranian waters, and that is where he fired the missle. Nothing mentioned in the finding
This is idiocy on a grand scale.
Try to keep your inferiority complex under control...........
My God, do you actually think the 9-11 tragedy happened because the Americans spied on the Russians, or even because the Americans accidentally shot down an airliner filled with NOT Arabs, but Persians?
How about the American attempt to stabilize Somalia back in the early 90s? You know, when they went in with the UN to try and end the rule of warlords that were causing mass starvation? Muslims all.
How about the American defense of Muslims in Kosovo?
What about American aid to Muslim rebels in Afghanistan in their war with the Russians?
How about the American defense of the Muslims of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait from the secular state of Iraq in 1990?
Indeed, the presence of American troops in their Holy Land around Mecca and Medina is the reason for Osama's Jihad against the USA. Their aid to the democratic nation of Israel is only secondary. That is, of course, insanity.
But, of course, you wouldn't want to actually admit your friends were attacked without reason! NOOOOOO, that would mean you might have some responsibility to come to their aid! We couldn't have that, could we now?
