sorry if I touched a nerve. Like I said, when I saw the original pics, it reminded me of the hateful thing they did in Iraq, that is all. Again, I claim "cultural hate" as my basis. Maybe part of your explanation explains what I was trying to point out about what happened here years ago.... "Just a bunch of extremists who thrive off of the hate and/or control we throw their way and use it to recruit higher numbers"
