    I feel like a paranoid conspiracy theorist saying this, but I would not be suprised if the "arab spring" movement about a year ago was the first step for Islamic extremist to get the US supported dictators out of power and put into a place a weaker government that could better allow terrorist safe havens in the country, maybe even an extremist lead country to be put into place. I don't know but it is starting to look like that. Your thoughts?

    It is to get tyrannical dictators we support out of their country, so they can have real democracy, instead of our fake democracy we keep pushing.

    Extremism appeals to the intergenerational poverty stricken, whether it comes from a dictatorship supported by the U.S., i.e.-Egypt; or from a dictatorship supported by Russia, i.e.-Syria.
    3 out of 4 young men under age 30 are unemployed in Egypt.
    Extremism combined with a mandate from Allah (God), appears like a viable option to many whom have had nothing to lose for decades.
    My take is that it is not a conspiracy, but the natural course of historical events that have led up to this day in the Middle East.
    This too will eventually come to pass, but it might eventually include a nuclear option at some point.
    Meanwhile, Iran racing towards the development of nuclear weapons realizes this.

    There will never be any "real" democracy nover there.

    Lybia, Egypt, Syria will all go Islamic crazies and the world be the worse for it.

    The ME trades dictators for theocracies often enough.

    They have peace under dictators, and nightmarish horrors under theocracies.
    The dictator tortures citizens, the mullahs torture and murder women and children.

    Seriously, we should let those vile fucks go back to just killing each other.

    That's why we separate church and state, in this country.

    Or so I thought?

    waterboard people that gleefully murder innocent women and children

    shoving a rubber hose up your ass for being the wrong kind of muslim, from a different tribe or just looking at the wrong person

    Starting to look more and more like Terry Jones did not have a big part in creating the video. Its now being speculated that it was made to spark a war between caucases muslims and the MB. Apparently the funding came from Egypt for the film, and no one can actually find the film, only a trailer for it. And the trailer looks like its been modified a lot. I still think jones is an idiot, but my conspiracy theory looks like its starting to come true
