Statists who oppose the building of that mosque near the World Trade Center site are missing the point, and the reason they’re missing the point is that they simply cannot bring themselves to recognize that the problem is not with Islam or Muslims. The problem is with the U.S. government and specifically, its imperial, interventionist foreign policy that waged war against people in the Middle East for years prior to the 9/11 attacks.

In other words, the 9/11 terrorists did not attack New York and Washington because of Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, or any other religion. They attacked because they were retaliating for the horrible things that the U.S. government had done to people in the Middle East, most of whom happen to have been Muslims.

Its time Fortress America to considered, the insanity of being the Worlds Cop has gone on long enough. The Soviet Union is dead and buried, despite what Putin thinks or wants so the justification for it is no longer around.

Why did they kill those children? Because they hoped that Saddam Hussein would leave office rather than continue to watch his own people die from the sanctions. They were using the Iraqi children as the means by which to pressure him into relinquishing power in favor of a U.S.-approved ruler.
Ah yes, I should have realized that the reason I don't support a mosque going there is stupid because America killed Iraqi children intentionally for years on end. So dumb of me!

The article is moronic. First off...any Iraqi children that died did so because their dicatator used the riches he accumulated that was supposed to provide services to the citizens of iraq for his own selfish gains. While people in Iraq died, Hussein continued to build palaces of gold.

Second...this jagoff proves he simply does not understand muslim extremists. They dont give a **** about children. They slaughter innocent muslim men women and children on a regular basis and have done so for several generations.

This is coming from the founder and president of The Future of Freedom Foundation? What a horrible joke. He should start with getting his facts straight and actually listen to what these extremists have to say.
