"They turn to terrorism because they hate American policies" is an incredibly simplistic point of view. True, they use "American presence in the holy land" as a reason to hate America, but the truth is that the ultimate goal of many Muslim radicals is the destruction of any government that doesn't govern itself by Islamic law. And what would drive people to kill tons of innocent people, many of them their own people, in the name of some "higher cause," and think that God is going to reward them, has to be a more complicated issue than "they hate America."
Now the US invading Iraq did >nothing to stop terrorism, in fact it's what the terrorist >wanted. You don't think they're watchin g Al jazeera and >seeing their people being killed.
It's increased terror in the short run, but it has the potential to spark a democracy movement in the long run.

Put on halt? Do you have any evidence of that? I'm sure there's a lot that's going on that we'll never hear about.

It's my city too. And let's say that he would disagree 100% with every point i'm making, how am I disrespecting him?
