27. Well, I have seen rational documentaries about how they
feel about the US even before 911; but not in the western media so much. So I am paraphrasing and condensing what I have heard on and about the situations in the ME and Africa and South Asia and have never understood why only the "irrational" "extremist" views of why they hate us are propagandized here in the "free" world. I have seen and read stories relating to but not limited to . . . water resource, oil resources, diamond and precious metal resources, and of course human (slave labor)resources as being legitimate issues these countries' populations would have with us, I mean US. I know everyone jumps on me, but it seemed to me even on 911 that the concept of "innocent" lives was sooo misrepresenting. They were aiming for financial, capitalistic and US government targets. If we can kill so many as "collateral" damage in our military behaviours, then I suggest that the "innocents" in those buildings were also collateral in damage. The targets themselves and the choice of branding (ie WTC chose to be known as the financial capital of the world) represented legitimate targets to the concerns of the rebellion against american financial and government tyrannical support and abuse of other countries' resources and peoples.
