15. I undertand our history in the region
Edited on Fri Jan-28-11 07:38 PM by eissa
Trust me, I'm from there. There is plenty of blame to go around. HOWEVER, enough already with blaming everyone but themselves. Arabs have for far too long pointed the finger at the outside while making excuses for their own governments. It's time to call a spade a spade; the repressive regimes in the ME have exploited everything from the Palestinian issue to cartoons in an effort to keep their citizenry down. Arab armies are generally trained to protect their governments from its own people rather than fight invading countries. Do we provide ammunition? Yeah, we do. But they are more than willing to use them on their own people.
