I was going to add this to another thread, but maybe it deserves to be on it's own. Question

quote:
Entirely omitted from the probe, and from the presidential elections as well, is the other big question about September 11 - what was the real reason the attacks took place?

quote:
The primary reason for September 11 is the product of US policy and actions in the Middle East since the end of World War II - a policy based on exercising control over the world's greatest known reserves of petroleum. This has led Washington to continuously intervene in the region to support backward feudal monarchies and repressive, undemocratic regimes at the expense of social and political progress. The three secondary reasons involve the Afghan civil war (1978-1995), the first US-Iraq war (1990-2003), and one-sided US support for Israel (mainly 1967-2004).

This answer on the surface is true but is too simplistic to be taken seriously.

Hey, it more in depth and complicated than "they hate our freedoms." :

My question is why should we believe that "if we had known that they were going to crash planes into our towers on sept 11 we would have moved heaven and earth to prevent it from happening", when after the first plane hit, Bush went into a classroom to read to children . . . after the second plane hit, he continued to sit and read to the children . . . then he high-tailed it to some secret location and hid under his lead lined desk . . . some attempt at moving heaven and earth there George . . . you definitly knew you were under attack after the second plane hit the towers, and you didn't even make an effort to move your lazy ass, let alone move heaven and earth!!

I thought this was pretty well self-evident from an honest look at U.S. foreign policy. There is also a very disturbing corollary:

If the U.S. does not or cannot learn from the causes of 9-11 to take a radically new direction in foreign policy then events like 9-11 are destined to be repeated. So current U.S. policy is, in all probability, preparing the ground for new, horrifying atrocities. But there are also signs that other countries, recently Spain for example, are unwilling to follow the U.S. down that path to oblivion. In the welter of contradictory tendencies, let's hope that the Spanish precedent presages a great new trend.

Also include the Dominican Republic who just announced their withdrawl, with Thailand soon to follow.

The coalition of the fooled are coming around!

Methinks there's a trend.

quote:
Polish Prime Minister Leszek Miller said today that Poland is considering the possibility of withdrawing its troops from Iraq.
