    It will never stop....as long as American drones are flying over Yemen and killing innocent children and their fathers join Al Qaeda to avenge the death of their babies.

    Al Qaeda was launching attacks from Yemen long before US drone strikes on the country. With or without them there would still be terrorism in the country

    Don't change your argument. You first blame U.S. drone attacks and when owned on that point you bring up a completely unrelated issue. Al-Qaeda are not a reflection of oppressed minorities.

    What? AQ, Yemeni dictator and the US foreign policy towards Yemen are interrelated, genius. If you need me to explain all this to you, you obviously know nothing about the middle east.

    Ah you're the guy you jumped on the "kony" bandwagon, I seem to remember. All seems clear now. :rofl2:

    Then make it clear in your original post rather than blaming just US drone strikes :rolleyes:

    Yes, but I never said "US foreign policy" did I? I said "drone attacks", in accord with your first point. Aj correctly pointed out that the al-Qaeda insurgency was going on before the drone attacks began (indeed, it should be obvious that the drone attacks only took place because of the AQ insurgency). Because of this you shifted your position to "oh, but the U.S. supports Saleh" as though that reaffirms your first point. Which it doesn't. So there...

    P.S. And your argument is rendered even more nonsensical by the fact that Saleh is no longer the Yemen's president anyway.

    What exactly do you want me to clear for you, aj. Ill spell it out letter by letter, if it makes it easier to sink in. Dont pretend you middle class liberals care about "muslim civilians" in Yemen, when you create threads every other day slagging Muslims (the same guys you're meant to be caring about).

    I want you to stop making moronic posts that you apparently know are wrong then suddenly change your line when someone questions you on it.

    Thanks

    Yes it does, because they're interrelated. Anyone with half a brain can see that. You're either an ignorant fool or you watch too much propaganda. Turn off the TV mate, its controlling your psyche.

    I want you do the same. Considering your doing a history degree, you're pretty ignorant. You know nothing about post WW2 middle east and you think you're an expert on it after watching a few AlJazeera clips lol.

    Ok. Let's look through this. You first said that "fathers join Al Qaeda to avenge the death of their babies" (as if creating more orphans is a natural reaction to this), the consequence of U.S. drone attacks, and then when you're put in your place by the correct observation that the al-Qaeda insurgency has been going on since before the limited U.S. intervention there, you say "Im pretty sure it was because of this guy" (Ali Abdullah Saleh). You brought him up because you were scrambling to find anything which predates drone attacks in your incessant attempts to justify terrorism. Just face it ak137. You always construct your arguments with the preconceived end goal of presenting terrorists (no matter who their victims are) as an understandable response by brown-skinned subalterns against the evils committed by, as you say, "middle-class white liberals". You're nothing but a racist fool and an apologist for murder.

    Yawn. Same old liberal rubbish. Come back with a bit of originality.

    Very effective way of essentially indirectly, self-admittedly losing an argument. I agreed with your initial point to an extent, but this is a poor demonstration of any strategical and geo-political knowledge of the workings and conduct of al-Qaeda.

    It's nice to see the MUN representative of Egypt sticks to his role, even in off-topic threads.
