GUEST,Leila Non-Music -What the world has to say (98* d) RE: Non-Music -What the world has to say 17 Oct 01

If the U.S. helps those who are struggling, they are vilified for sticking their noses into other peoples business. If the U.S. doesn't help those who are suffering, they are vilified for letting them suffer.

If the U.S. bombs strongholds of the Taliban - who harbour a man when even other fundamentalist Muslim nations agree that there is compelling evidence to subject him to a trial, who murder women for having skin, who subvert religion to such disgusting ends... they are vilified for it. If the U.S. drops thousands of pounds of food - Islamic faith appropriate food!! to the starving Afghani people, long time victims of that same Taliban - hmmm, this isn't mentioned much...

Why do they bother? Good question.

Is the U.S. perfect? Infallible? Ha! - Is anyone? But there's imperfect, there's fallible and then there's evil.

George W. (IMHO) didn't win the election, let's face it he's not the sharpest tool in the shed. But he went on international TV and told anyone who targets people just because they appear to be middle eastern, or are Muslim should be ashamed of themselves. THe U.S. media is going out of their way to educate people to how far away from the Islamic faith the Taliban and bin Laden are. That muslims are NOT about terrorism and murder.

That is NOT about teaching their children to hate - that is about learning your facts before you act rashly. The U.S. didn't act rashly, they waited they had clear evidence as to who did it. They asked for him to be turned over for TRIAL. THey said what would happen if refused. They followed through. THey took every precaution to only hit military and gov't sites - to not harm civilians. They do not achieve perfection in this, but they try.

I have been pleasantly surprised at how well this atrocity has been handled by "W" and the U.S.

Peace, Leila
