Reader comment on item: What Do Terrorists Want? [A Caliphate and Shari'a]
in response to reader comment: Two sides to the story

I have to agree with george, although the muslims say they are having a "Jihad" which everyone knows means holy war, but the modern day terrorist used to be children when the Jihad began and there parents taught them that they have to kill Americans for God. This was probably just an excuse made by the terrorists so that there children would know they are fighting for something greater than humanity, give them morale and hope, when truly the real reason is because the Americans are the ones that continued creating oil rigs and increasing power within Muslim countries.

the fact of the matter is, is that America has been blinded by greed and overlooked wat has happened to the Islamic, Afgan and Iraqi lifestyle and wat there 'warlords' have done to them.Did you notice how George Bush only 'cared' about the citizens of those countries when his own country was threatened? If you asked me there wouldnt be such hate in the world if it wasnt for greed of power and money. This is my opinoin anyways.
