The guy has a point.  I won't go as far as to say that Boston go what it deserved.  I will say that as much as America does butt in and does back bad guys from time to time and does seem to be war-hungry almost all the time, how this sort of thing hasn't happened hundreds of times before on US soil is a mystery.

As a nation, we deserve this kind of treatment.  More accurately, our government deserves it.  If the terrorists really want to get back at those that they feel have wronged them, American citizenry should not be the target.  They should do some research and go after the big money entities that fund the military industrial complex and back government leaders with shiat-tons of money to get what they want out of the world.  And then, go after the leaders themselves.

Attacking a pretty farking ignorant populace that is only too eager to suck up the government's assessment of things is not going to accomplish a single farking thing.  They attack citizens, the government tells the citizens who did it and who to hate, the citizens believe it, and the government goes on doing whatever the hell the rich entities tell them to.

Falk's commentary began by stating how 'Islamaphobic' America has become


Baby, you aint seen nothin yet.  A few continuous years of this and Western Muslims will need a new title to call themselves so they dont get thrown in the same train car as the non western muslims during a roundup.  Some farking genius thought the best way to fight against the west was to make westerners incredibly scared and angry.  Because that has worked out so well in the past.

They would have more luck JUST bombing abortion clinics and pissing off only half of America.

partisan222: the Irish are Islamic?


Not typically, why? atomicmask said islamics were the primary culprit in every terrorist attack/plot in the world.

Which is, of course, not true. I provided a number of examples of groups who were the primary culprit in a number of terrorist attack/plots all over the world who are NOT islamist.

Make sense?

partisan222: DubtodaIll: What's the point of the UN again?  I've never really studied it's history but the current culture there is fairly disgusting.  Unaccountable appointed jackwagons that espouse hatred for the U.S. while gleefully enjoying the facilities and privileges provided by U.S. success.  Not to mention the U.N. is in NYC.

But really, has the U.N. ever done anything more important than strongly worded letters?  I googled U.N. success and only got links to un.org.

I know! John Bolton was an assclown and brought shame to the organization!

And screw all those kids who learned to read or were treated for diseases under UN programs, not to mention the absolute waste spent on rebuilding impoverished countries after natural disasters. we all know the US has done far more for Haiti than the UN ever did.

And Bush I, with the First Iraq War - what a joke that he used the UN to build a coalition of over 100 nations to give legitimacy to his invasion. His son sure learned what a waste the UN was when he went in with a coalition of the willing - it turned out way better!

/sarcasm off
//go read a book, stop reading infowars and Glenn Blech


I'm only insulted that you think I'd pay attention to infowars or Glenn Blech or Gleen Beck.  Just because I'm conservative doesn't make me willfully blind and stupid. Like I said I'm not terribly informed about the U.N.  I only know them mostly from pop culture references and these kinds of news stories. I'm sure the U.N. does plenty of good at the ground level, but there seems to be a disconnect with reality as far as many of the speeches given at the general assembly.  Though it is possible I just live in a bubble or something.  As if someone set up this place where I could just say whatever I wanted, often purposefully against the presiding authority, and get away with it.  Huh...interesting.

Princess Ryans Knickers: LonMead: Princess Ryans Knickers: skullkrusher: Princess Ryans Knickers: If we hadn't stuck our noses into the foreign affairs of Chechnya we wouldn't have had the bombings. Truth. George Washington warned us about getting entangled in the affairs of other nations for a reason.

not a day goes by where you don't say something incomprehensibly stupid

You mean like how we removed a democratically elected President in Cuba and installed Castro. Or how we stuck our noses into Vietnam to "stop communism". Or how we removed a democratically elected leader in Iran and installed a theocratic one. Or how we then trained and supplied Iraq to fight Iran. Or how we trained and supplied bin Laden and the Taliban to fight Russia. Or how we trained and supplied Noriega in Nicaragua. Then we trained and supplied the rebels in Nicaragua. Then we went after bin Laden, Saddam. Or how about our sabre rattling at Iran recently? Or sticking our nose in Korea, over and over. Or us sticking our nose into the Chechnyan-Russian Federation conflict and sending terrorists from Saudi Arabia to interfere.

Tell me, oh great and wise one... who really is the stupid one?

Since roughly 2/3 of what you just posted was completely wrong, and the rest shows a total lack of understanding about history, I'm going to go with you.

And what, exactly, is wrong? I'll wait.


You obviously failed history class the first time... why put yourself through it again?

But, since you asked, some examples:

The U.S. had nothing to do with Batista's overthrow in Cuba (in fact, the U.S. tried to get rid of Castro, and has had an embargo on the country since the 60's)

The U.S. had nothing to do with the overthrow of the Shah (in fact, one of the reasons Khomeni's followers took and held the U.S. Embassy during this period had to do with U.S. support of the Shah).

Noriega was in Panama.

Yes we trained and supplied the rebels in Nicaragua (that would be the pro-democratic, anti-Communist rebels).

We went after bin Laden because bin Laden came at us.

Sticking OUR nose in Korea? Maybe you mean the United Nations.

Chechnya? You mean where we condemned the the Chechens use terrorism and sent humanitarian aid, and tried to get the Russians to negotiate? And where do you find that we sent Saudi terrorists to "interfere" (interfere with what, might I ask?)?

Yeah, going to have to say you're not really the bright one here.

They blew the front off #2 Downing street. The Brittish equivelant of Bombing the White House. Don;t get me wrong, the IRA actually had a valid grievance, and the Brittish were absolutely terrible to the Irish for centuries, but let's not pretend the IRA weren't terrorists. They just had a strong tendancy to keep their violence local and focused on the people they were actually aggrieved with.

Yes.  At the same time, saying that America's actions overseas make us "deserve" attacks from Radical Islam makes it seem like Islamic terrorists are very selective about who they target.

The strongest predictor for being a victim of an Islamic terrorist attack is living in a predominately Muslim country.

Batista was about as crooked as most other Latin American leaders at the time (mainly bribery and graft), but Cuba was prosperous under his regime. The followers of Castro were a distinct minority.

And the only thing that made Pahlavi "terrible" was dragging Iran kicking and screaming into the modern era.

But they DO target Americans. They ARE selective toward Americans and westerners, and they cite our foreign policy and actions as the "rationale". The fact that they ALSO bomb and attack other sects does not  take way from that. For instance, they do not specifically target people from Brazil.

To clarify, we do not "Deserve" it, but our foreign policy *IS* a factor in why Americans are selected for targeting. They are WRONG about it, but then they are crazy, and with a few exceptions (The Shah and Iraq, for instance) we really couldn't be doing things much differently.

But, since you asked, some examples:

Actually we did.

John F. Kennedy stated:

"I approved the proclamation which Fidel Castro made in the Sierra Maestra, when he justifiably called for justice and especially yearned to rid Cuba of corruption. I will even go further: to some extent it is as though Batista was the incarnation of a number of sins on the part of the United States. Now we shall have to pay for those sins. In the matter of the Batista regime, I am in agreement with the first Cuban revolutionaries. "


The U.S. had nothing to do with the overthrow of the Shah (in fact, one of the reasons Khomeni's followers took and held the U.S. Embassy during this period had to do with U.S. support of the Shah).

So you deny that the United States and the CIA had nothing to do with Khomeini?

 Yes we trained and supplied the rebels in Nicaragua (that would be the pro-democratic, anti-Communist rebels).


Glad you agree.

We went after bin Laden because bin Laden came at us.

And so you don't deny that we first trained and supplied bin Laden, nor do you deny that other statement of mine that we had to clean up the mess that was made of our country due to him? Sticking our noses where they don't belong.


Sticking OUR nose in Korea? Maybe you mean the United Nations.
United States Army Military Government of Korea ring any bells? We were involved before the UN was. Since the United States fairly much controls and leads the UN, you do the math.
 

Chechnya? You mean where we condemned the the Chechens use terrorism and sent humanitarian aid, and tried to get the Russians to negotiate? And where do you find that we sent Saudi terrorists to "interfere" (interfere with what, might I ask?)?

Do a Google book search. You can see the old newspaper articles about it from 1999. We were asked point blank by Russia to stop interfering.

The fact that we, as a nation, are incapable of realizing our foreign policy dick-waving is the reason so many people around the world hate us is why things like Boston will continue to happen. It's much easier for us to believe they hate us because we're so damn awesome since the alternative would require some empathy and introspection, and perhaps the possibility of shattering our puffed up exceptionalist view of ourselves, and we can't have that.

I guess that's why I'm so numb to this and other tragedies. Yeah, they suck but they'll continue to happen until we take a real hard look at why they happen. Until then, don't ask me to give a damn and I won't say I told you so the next time it happens, and it will.

Don't be a putz.  If you really think teacher unions are the big money players for government power than I have no regard for your cognitive abilities.  And if you also think that American foreign policy has not resulted in backlash and a "chickens come home to roost" response then I hope someone takes away your driver's license and your access to any dangerous machinery.

As a nation, we deserve this kind of treatment.  More accurately, our government deserves it.  If the terrorists really want to get back at those that they feel have wronged them, American citizenry should not be the target.  They should do some research and go after the big money entities that fund the military industrial complex and back government leaders with shiat-tons of money to get what they want out of the world.  And then, go after the leaders themselves.

Attacking a pretty farking ignorant populace that is only too eager to suck up the government's assessment of things is not going to accomplish a single farking thing.  They attack citizens, the government tells the citizens who did it and who to hate, the citizens believe it, and the government goes on doing whatever the hell the rich entities tell them to.


"We should stone to death the woman who got raped because she dressed like a harlot and then committed adultery."

What's different?

Big money entities, like teacher unions?

I am almost sick so many farkers agree with the guy. Just.... wow. True liberal colors.

Don't be a putz.  If you really think teacher unions are the big money players for government power than I have no regard for your cognitive abilities.  And if you also think that American foreign policy has not resulted in backlash and a "chickens come home to roost" response then I hope someone takes away your driver's license and your access to any dangerous machinery.

True knee-jerk Republican reaction with a utterly tragic lack of critical thinking skills.  It truly makes me sad that there are people who think like you. You are a glaring symptom of what is wrong with this country and this whole farking planet.  Congratulations.


According to NPR, money in politics doesn't even come close to guaranteeing a victory.

minoridiot: Calling something "retribution" is not exactly the same as saying "they got what they deserved".


No, that's exactly what it means.

So the solution to get back at America is to bomb people watching runners?  Isn't that blaming the victim?  I mean, they didn't attack soldiers or raid a Marine base...


Did you even read what I wrote?  I clearly stated that bombing civilians is the WORST way to get back at America.  American citizens are not responsible for what the government has done.  Not really, not anymore.  We "elect" these people, but only based on what we are spoon-fed by the massive money machine that tells most Americans what to think.  We, as a nation, are that stupid and gullible.  Our opinions are malleable and we have so much political fatigue that most of us would rather not deal with it so we can get back to Dancing with the Stars and stuffing our faces with unhealthy food.

Our government is COMPLETELY bought and paid for by monied interests.  And those interests want more money and more power.  They finance candidates, get them elected and tell them what to do.  And the assholes do it, no matter if it is inadvisable, short-sighted, or downright cruel.

But bombing civilians is NOT going to make America stop doing its dastardly deeds.  It will make the government of America do even more.  The only difference is the degree with with we will strike back.  That depends on the administration and who is holding the purse strings at the time.  But both sides have farked our foreign policy over the decades.

What really sucks is that even though we are completely farked as a country, led by evil idiots, America is still the best country on the planet.  How sad is that for planet Earth?

You stated that it's the worst way, but you still said we get what we deserve...
