So FC58 has finally decided to go look up a post of mine that he has been misquoting for the sole purpose of agitation all over this forum. Good. At least it's better than altering a different post with the childish wording of his.
What FC (which I have a good idea what it stands for) conveniently omitted was that this was a reply to the post by mnchiefsguy who said, "There is nothing that the United States has done that warranted that attack." I was explaining that there was not one big thing but a total sum of many smaller things that added up big. Hence the "Pounds" and "Ton" reference.
This was just a statement of a sad fact. And if anybody does not think that the West, especially the US did not partake in the looting of the Middle East over most of the 20th century he/she either has his/her head up his ass or is in total denial.
AGAIN: I did not say the US did something like a military attack that provoked the 9/11 attack. I said the US policies in most of the 20th century was definitely a major contribution to it.
MC58 also failed to mention that I, as most Iranians and former Iranians have, have condemned the 9/11 attack. Mine was even repeated several times in that very thread.
I don't expect bigoted idiots like MC to understand what I just said. But most of the rest of you should, unless you wear ignorance as a badge of honor.
