    Honesty, what do you think is the real cause of the killings going on in the Middle East?

    Is it because of American hatred?

    Is it because of Americans religious bigotry?

    Is it because of a movie released 1 year ago, or now that it was shown it was released a year ago the claim that it was the trailer released on YouTube? (story changes to fit circumstances)

    Is it over the killing of OBL?

    If you wish to discuss, a WHY would be nice.

    I do not think it is because of the video.

    I believe western ideals are a serious threat to radical Islam because it interferes with their ability to completely control their people.

    Civilized human beings would not act as these people do.

    Of course it's the video causing all the protests, which jihadists used as cover to attack the consulate in Libya- where the USA is actually very popular.

    .

    There's not one simple answer, not just one finger to point.

    These people essentially have a 17th century mindset animated and exacerbated by their religion. Fine, that's their problem, not mine or ours. But then we stick our nose in their business pretty much everywhere, and -- far worse -- militarily occupy what they consider to be their sacred land and blow the living shit out of half of it so that we can fill up our Escalades and Hummers. Since they don't have jet fighters and rockets to fight us and get us the fuck out of there, they do what they can.

    That gives their "leaders" plenty of fuel to preach their hate (funny, I see the same tactic used in America by race pimps, but that's for a different thread) and make a bad situation even worse.

    If some Middle Eastern country wanted our coal and parked a few thousand tanks in Dubuque, what would we do?

    Stange statement. If it was because of the video then why do you say it was cover? Cover for the real reason? If so then "of course" it was not over the video. I can think of 1.5 billion reason we would be popular with the ruling elite.
