17. does ANYONE seriously believe that if the U.S.did not have its military might positioned all over
Edited on Sun Nov-20-11 11:12 PM by Douglas Carpenter
the Arab and Islamic world including multiple installations with enormous amounts of military firepower inside Saudi Arabia itself - and if the U.S. was not the power that decided which governments in the Middle East are legitimate and which are not and if the U.S. was not the overwhelming and almost unconditional supporter of the Israeli state no matter what they do - is there ANYONE who can claim with a straight face that Al Qaeda would have still existed as we know it today and would have still carried out the attacks on September 11? ANYONE BELIEVE THAT?? ANYONE AT ALL??

Yes Congressman Paul has some down right nutty reactionary ideas particularly on issues of domestic social obligations. But it is nice to know that he has some barrings on reality when in comes to the wider world. And Yes bin Lade and Al Qaeda are pure evil - but evil like bacteria needs certain conditions go grow.
