So, you're calling him a terrorist OR you're believing the story that he shot these people over parking spots.

Terrorists don't have to political motives behind them. But, if you want to make it up, I guess they can.


Terrorism - the use of unlawful or threat of unlawful violence to coerce governments or societies in the pursuit of goal that are generally political, religious, our ideological.

That's the word you should have defined. It's the context phiilyb alluded to.

I would be careful going too far in this thread guys. It's not inconceivable there is someone who knew them posting here. Nobody has gone too far yet but as a reminder keep this respectful and don't let your world views/political leaning could the fact this is a fresh wound for some.

Whatever the cause of this is, it's wrong. Terrible situation.

Just going to drop this here.

In Topic: Why are so many Muslims violent in the modern era?

No doubt you are frustrated. Anyone that views what has been going on in the ME for generations is frustrated.

However that doesn't address the OP's question does it?

Again, why are so many Muslims violent in the modern era?

Until the US finds alternate sources of energy for itself and its allies we will remain in the Middle East.

Our very presence there antagonizes and radicalizes much of the local population.

Westerners have a long history of screwing over the indigenous Arab population, especially when it comes to taking their natural resources.

The fact that we don't share their values and have invaded their lands for literally thousands of years doesn't help matters either.

Don't want the locals to be mad at us, get the hell out of their backyard.

That shouldn't be so hard to understand.

If our roles were reversed we would be doing everything within our power to drive them from our lands too. Americans would feel completely justified in our actions and as far as I'm concerned, we would be.


That's a very simplified view. The reality of this while thing is far more complex than us simply being in these countries. The whole crusader thing is tired and a really easy fall back for possible looking to point fingers. There's a lot of really messed up things going on in that part of the world. There has been for thousands of years.

They are violent because of the political circumstances which exist in their counties. They are violent because it provides them with money. They are violent because it keeps their family safe. They are violent because their imam, mullah, etc preaches wahabbism or some other form of violent political Islam. Poverty breeds bad things. The gap between haves/have nots is ridiculous. And that all isn't pinned on our shoulders.
