45. Bin Laden is just a cowardly prick though...
he doesn't carry anything out himself. Most of the people who actually carry out acts of terrorism are poor. The problem (IMHO) is that people who have nothing can often be easily misled and manipulated by people who seem rich and powerful. Hence the reason that Bush managed to manipulate so many of America's poor into voting him in. The problem, as usual is the large gap between rich and poor, and the envy it creates.

Having said that I don't know how a skinny, jaundice man lying in a bed can seem powerful!
