Blaming the U.S. is Too Easy

Why is it so easy for those who think like you to blame the U.S. for all the problems of other countries?

The U.S. supported and hoped Bhutto would be elected. Just because you want to believe something, and it supports your argument, doesn't make it true. It isn't known that Musharraf had her killed. It appears to have been Al Queda or someone of that ilk.

I explained as best I could in my last comment why the U.S. has no choice but to support Musharraf for now. If, as you say, the Peoples Party is Secular and not anti-American, and also capable of containing the Taliban and Al Queda -- and most importantly, capable of securing the nuclear material -- the U.S. would support them. If. Why not?

It's interesting that you list Christian supporters of Muslim Palestinians and supporters of Hezbollah. If a Christian mayor of Bethlehem is a member of Hamas, wouldn't you say that he is corrupt, considering all the damage that Muslims have done to Christians in Bethlehem? Are you saying, for instance, that most Christians in Lebanon want a Hezbollah government there? Isn't that rather absurd considering the history of Lebanon?

Have you read the article discussing how so many Palestinians prefer to remain Israeli citizens than to be ruled by a Palestinian government?

In a previous post you said "I do not care if Palestinian live or died." Yet you call a suicide bomber a "hero." And you call yourself "Shahid."

Are you just grabbing at any straw, ignoring facts, and using any morsel of information to twist logic, in order to support your blaming and what seems to be, hatred of America? And Israel as well.
