Yeah, the good old American 'strategy' (this is almost insulting to the concept of strategy) at work:
'SHOUT SHOOT SHOUT'
'WE ARE GOING TO KILL ANYBODY WHO DOES SOMETHING AGAINST THE USA!'
'WE HAVE KILLED THE BAD GUYS!' or 'Justice has been done'
And then the USA still don't get why all a lot of people around the world have a problem with them...
This is a war.
No. There wasn't a war before USA opened one. There has been a giant terrorist attack, made by a bunch of guys who were part of an organization that was certainly smaller than one thousands persons around the world (and I think I'm generous). The biggest not military attack against a country ever, some terrorism
. The response should have been counter-terrorism
, and one with a strategy that should be a bit more dense than: BOMB!/KILL!
But the glorious USA administrations decided to turn it into a worldwide far-west in which they allow themselves to do whatever they want in any country and in which they think that bombing and murdering some guys will do any good to fight this terrorism
. In short, they take over-imperialist measures to fight something which is mainly motivated by anti-imperialism
(hell, just have a look to the dynamic that built Al Qaeda).
Has there been more terrorism around the world before 9/11, or after? Has there been some Americans that turned into 'Muslim' terrorists against USA before or after? The development of terrorist organizations tied to Al Qaeda has it been bigger before 9/11 or after?
15,000 civilian dead people in Afghanistan after 2001.
2,760 for 2010 only (UN figures), a figure which is disturbingly close from 9/11.
The 'War on Terror' seems to have a glorious assessment...
But hey, apparently, it doesn't prevent people to party around the murder of someone like if it was about a football victory.
And then you wonder why a lot of people around the world has a problem with this country, with what this country does
...Seems like in a...
