No, we fight because we are free men who dont sleep under oppression. We want to restore freedom to our nation, just as you lay waste to our nation. So shall we lay waste to yours.
So, bin laden explicitly states that they are NOT freedom haters, but attack because of our policies.
We also armed Bin Laden in his war with the Russians, with the best of the best military equipment we had. scary Then WE turned on Bin Laden.
I personally didn't see anyone of those guys I would get out of bed to go vote for, but Ron Paul was correct.
I'm afraid bin Laden has a different definition of freedom than you and I. Freedom to him means the freedom to kill anyone who disagrees with him. He is attacking us because we're free - free to make our own foreign policy. He won't be satisfied until the State Department represents al Qaeda's interests.
Besides, imagine if a Taiwanese terrorist group launched attacks against the US because of the American government's refusal to recognize Taiwan as an independent country. Should we then recognize Taiwan as an independent country? Just because our adversaries have a cause doesn't make it our cause, regardless of how many of our people they kill. The solution isn't to have the State Department represent al Qaeda's interests instead of our national interests - it's to slaughter al Qaeda operatives, and to deter any foreign governments that may be tempted to cooperate with al Qaeda.
