That's like saying that we deserved 9/11 because the US supported bin Laden and his crew in Afghanistan.
No terrorist support is OK. They are not striking at the Government, they are striking at innocents.
Also, CAIR survived 9/11, I am sure they will survive another major terrorist attack on US soil. Everyone was walking on eggshells not to condemn Muslims back then. So, I don't have much confidence that with Obama as president that we will clamp down on CAIR or any other Islamic extremist groups in the US in the event of a major attack here.
"That's like saying that we deserved 9/11 because the US supported bin Laden and his crew in Afghanistan."
Anyone who would say that is an ignoramus because they don't know the facts. We never supported bin Laden during the Afghanistan war. The fact is, no one in our defense department ever heard of Osama Bin Laden during the Afghanistan war. Sure, it's possible that a group he was involved with got money to fight the Soviets, but at that time he was not a terrorist. He was fighting against an invading army. Name one terrorist activity he did in the 80's?
Iran's regime has supported with money and training terrorist groups such as Hamas and the insurgents in Iraq. Russia is stopping us at the UN from implementing tougher sanctions and helping Iran to build their nuclear reactor.
If you don't see that then you are blind and probably belong on Huffington Post writing your posts with the rest of the blind....
"No terrorist support is OK. They are not striking at the Government, they are striking at innocents."
Perhaps you did not read my post clearly. I grieve for the people involved, but I don't have a lot of sympathy for the plight of the Russian government. They are actively supporting the terrorist regime in Iran. Putin and Medevev have no moral authority to talk about terrorism while they do this.
