We were told they hated us for our freedoms (instead of for the US government’s crimes). Now those freedoms are all but gone; attacked and shredded by the US government, continually, without a break for the past 17 years.
So, do they love us now? If not, that must not have been the real reason.
Government is the only terrorist organization capable of doing such society-encompassing harm. So why do “we” continue to negotiate with these terrorists? Why do we continue to comply as they criminalize more and more liberty? Why doesn’t everyone see them as the true bad guys? They’ll never stop until they are stopped. Why would they? They are getting just what they wanted.
