Ever heard of "an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind?"
If Laden follows this amazing "religion of peace", shouldn't he be taking the high moral road instead of killing innocent people like he suggests that Bush is doing?
If his quarrel with Bush/America is that they are killing innocent muslims, then how exactly is Laden doing the right thing by doing the EXACT SAME THING
Does this sound like a man who wants to resolve an issue or does it sound like a man who is using America's nonsense policies to further his own hateful and murderous desires?
I am not saying that America is blameless, I am well aware of how badly their actions have damaged the world.
However, to say that we should fight fire with fire is gibberish.
Also, America does what it does because of its flawed policies and corruption/greed. It's a political game for them.
For Bin Laden however, it's not strictly political is it? He used Allah to back his actions. He uses verses from the Quran to back his actions.
Now here's the thing: America has never claimed that its policies are for peace and love and harmony and all that. The entire world knows that America is a flawed, capitalistic, greedy system. But that's politics for ya....there is no perfect system.
However, on the flip side, Islam claims to be this amazing religion of peace and harmony, and yet the only things Laden seems to have focused on are the hateful verses of death, murder and jihad.
Totally not comparable to the destructive policies of the US.
If Bin Laden really wanted to rise up against America, he could've done so politically. Via an uprising/parades/rallies/global movements of muslims/etc.
But instead of all that...he decided to use Allah to justify his "eye for an eye" response to America.
In my eyes, Bush and bin Laden are one and the same. However, one is politically motivated, while the other is motivated by God/his beliefs. Since we all know that there is no perfect political system (hell even communism failed and that was supposed to be this uber great system) we can't necessarily just blame Bush for everything.
However, belief is what man makes them to be. For that reason, we can blame Bin Laden entirely for the nonsense he engaged in for so many decades.
And no amount of "America invaded us first" or "Americans are ungodly infidels" is going to change the fact that bin Laden killed thousands of innocent people for an agenda that he himself did not want his own children to follow.
