in response to reader comment: Avenging The Killing Of Muslims?

Being an Iraqi I Just want to say - I am no fan of Saddam Hussein since he was a brutal dictator but since he had no link with Al- Qaeda as stated by your President and no WMDs i think you are making an absurd accusation !

When it comes the US foreign policy - yes the neo-conservatives had this grand plan of invading Iraq on the pretext of Saddam possessing WMDs when they were never discovered and turned Iraq into the killing fields .The vile treatment by US troops treating Iraqi prisoners worse than animals in the prisons.

Your govt is already leaching oil from the Saudis and placed puppet regimes in the Arab world. No Muslim country has ever threatened the West.

As far as suicide bombers are concerned they are nothing but a bunch of losers who are taking the path of the devil and to justify they are doing it in the name of Allah is an absolute fallacy !

However when Muslims have their homes raided or bulldozed or when their women are raped or men tortured i.e when Palestinian youths who are shot down by extremists Jewish elements in the Israeli army.

Remember when thousands of Bosnian Muslims who fought against the ethnic cleansing by the Serbian army and they needed the "Civilised West" their pleas for help fell on deaf ears and they had an arms embargo placed on them.
