How do you explain the fact that non-allies AREN'T being targeted???
Syria has been attacked.
Algeria has been attacked.
Azerbaijan has been attacked.
France has been attacked.
China has been attacked.
Russia has been attacked.
With allies like these, I’d hate to see our enemies.
Look pal, Muslims have a long list of greivances that go back decades and centuries, most of them, shall we say, not exactly corresponding to reality. If it weren't the first Gulf War, it'd be our support of the Saudis. If not our support of the Saudis, it'd be our support of the Shah. If not our support of the Shah, it'd be past Western colonialism, real and imagined. If not colonialism, it'd be the khaffir plot to replace the caliphate with that "British imperialist agent" Ataturk. Ad infinitum ad nauseum.
This idea that were there no non-Muslims in the Middle East, those go-along-to-get-along ol' Muslims wouldn't be bothering anyone - in spite of the history of Islam telling us completely the opposite - that's an idea that can be accepted by only the most deluded/gullible/naive/ignorant of people.
