Thread Name: BS: Unpopular views of the Bush Administration
Subject: RE: BS: Unpopular views of the Bush Administration
The USA itself has a long history of harbouring and promoting terrorists, from Latin America to the Middle East or wherever they like. Their own military forces are terrorists. They have funded death squads in Central and South America, and they funded and trained the Mujahedin in Afghanistan (to fight the Soviets), and the Mujahedin were the same people, the same religious fanatics who became, in time, the Taliban and Al Queda. The USA-back Northern Alliance in Afghanistan was different from the Taliban in one very interesting area...they grew opium for the international drug trade. The Taliban had shut down the opium farming in the areas they controlled, because of their religious/moral stand on the matter. The Afghani opium trade is now up and running again full steam, since the USA knocked out the Taliban administration. This is handy for the CIA, because the CIA deals opium (secretly, that is). It's a handy way of raising a hell of a lot of money fast. The Northern Alliance committed mass killings of prisoners during the fighting in Afghanistan. The USA was also complicit in helping Saddam during many of his massacres of Kurds, and standing quietly aside when he massacred Shiites, following the Gulf War.

The USA has itself committed pretty much every crime it is busy accusing others of committing. It's one of the most blatant cases of the pot calling the kettle black in recorded history for the USA to accuse other people of war crimes and/or terrorism.

But I forgot..."terrorism" is only called terrorism when other people do it, isn't it?
