I am not defending terrorists’ methods, but I understand their motivations…

I wrote this article a while ago…ok this time I am going to talk about politics…some of you might not share my point of view, but well, I really needed to express myself on that controversial subject…I think that too many of us don’t realize that the simple citizen is always going to pay for our politicians’ mistakes…feel free to comment, but please always with respect. Thank you.

PS: my views are anti Bush oriented, but in NO WAY anti American. I have mad love for American folks, so please don’t misquote me.

It is shocking to hear about terrorists plans about blowing up underground stations, busses or planes. I think that there are no words to express how much I hate the thought of hundreds, maybe thousands of innocents dying for nothing and to realize that I could be one of them.

I find suicide bomb attempts horrific in their whole dimension. I find it scary that Al Quaeda employs a lot of young brainwashed people in order to accomplish their despicable « duty ».

Yes, those are huge crimes against humanity and I have always hated injustice.

However, without condoning the terrorist’s plans, I really understand their motivations behind those horrible acts.

When you realize the mess dictators like Bush and Blair cause in Iraq and the way they treat Iraqi citizens, you cannot feel comfortable with that.

People have been raped and killed by US Army soldiers who had been commanded to do so.

Do you find it normal that people were humiliated in their faith while people threw Holy Qurans in the toilets?

How would you react if somebody attacked the fundaments of your faith or spirituality?

From what I understand about all the bloody wars in the Middle East, there is always Bush’s hegemony will over those countries mischievously masked by the word « democracy ».

Bush is a monster. He is nearly as horrible as Hitler. His torture methods are inspired from the Nazis. You don’t believe me? Did you know that hardcore rappers’ music was used at a very high level of sonority in order to make them prisoners talk? That’s exactly what the Nazis did in their concentration camps, using prisoners to play Richard Wagner’s music, while other prisoners were humiliated, forced to work like slaves, and eventually killed.

Now, I’d like to appeal to the terrorists’ conscience. I know you hate Bush and Blair. I perfectly know that. But do you think that it is justified for you to kill thousands of innocent people who are struggling to feed their families of who are simply visiting family members in the USA?

I do think that your actions are in no way justifiable. If I was in your place, I’d target the White House or Buckingham palace, but not average people who are in no way responsible for the stupid politicians’ foreign policies.

I have always respected people from different confessions. I am in no way a Bush nor a Blair supporter…so why should I die in the tube for their stupid foreign policies?

Think twice about your actions…and get a clue!

  1. How would you react if somebody attacked the fundaments of your faith or spirituality?

    You wrote this in your article…..are you kidding? Do you know that is this THE reason our Twin Towers were attacked in the first place?
    This is exactly how we felt and why we struck back so hard in the first place.
    As an American, born and raised in Detroit, I will say that I am not a big fan of where our administration has taken us and am ready to vote ANY democrat in office in the next two years. Please do not lump us all in together, as it is not always as black and white as our president may believe. I personally don’t think we should ever have gone into Iraq and certainly don’t agree with some of the tactics used in war……by either side.
    As a voting American citizen, I would like our troops to come back home, and for those living here that don’t like America, they are free to LEAVE!
    I find it unfortunate that you felt the need to compare Bush to Hitler. Perhaps, however, a strong nation like your own will step up to the plate just as we did in World War 2.

  2. Kym,

    I am not attacking America as a nation, so please don’t misquote me. I am attacking Bush as a political leader, because he has fully proven his incompetence to the world…should I remind some people that it all started with Ben Laden having a financial business with America…

    I am not jumping to conlusions about each American citizen, i have friends and contacts in the USa from very different ethnical backgrounds who don’t have the same political opinion…

    maybe you didn’t undertsnd it, but I like America…however, i don’t like the tyran Bush actally is.

  3. I LIKE TO READ YOUR PAGE AND I READ IT OFTEN.
    BUT YOU ONLY KNOW WHAT U READ. REMEMBER IT TAKE A LOT TO BE A PRESIDENT AND TO MAKE CHOICES. I AM NOT ALL FOR BUSH BUT TO COMPARE HIM TO HITLER COME ON KNOW. MY BOSS IS JEWISH!!!
    HITLER WAS FULL OF HATE AND HE DID ALOT WORSE!!!!!!!!

    CYN
