    You want me to find statements by the same person blaming America and/or Britain for these or prior acts of terror?
    What diff would it make...it is my view and plenty of other people that terrorist attacks are also consequences of aggressive foreign policy...it still doesnt mean that we dont condemn it does it...or do we have to swear alliegance to Mr.Bush to be fully supportive?

    How could you condemn terrorism when you justify it in your next breath?

    You seem to confuse justification and looking at causes of terrorism...even Bush has recognised that the middle east conflict has contributed to terrorism....

    There are always excuses for terrorism. If one excuse goes away, others are found. The only cause of Islamic terrorism is its anti-Western ideology and the willingness of some people to give up their lives for the sake of that ideology. The stated purpose of Islamic terrorism is the need to establish a global Caliphate. Whether Palestinians, Chechens, or Iraqis are oppressed is irrelevant to them; they're just ways to gain popular support for their acts of terror. Until every country in the world is ruled by Shari'a, these terrorists will not be satisfied.

    Well then how do you explain that every terrorist group is connected with a dispute/conflict...?

    Is that why al-Qaeda has been in active in Morocco, Spain, Britain, Chechnya, Bosnia, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan, US, and Saudi Arabia? Al-Qaeda is opportunistic. It uses conflicts as an excuse to extend its reach to ever more countries. Once the conflicts end, al-Qaeda doesn't go away. And the fact is, there are a countless amount of conflicts in the world. It's extremely easy to find one to justify acts of terror. And if that fails, they can always find some historical justification, like Spain's occupation of land that was Muslim 500 years ago. If that fails, you can always blame the Jews and the Crusaders for being involved in some global conspiracy against Islam.
    All the countries you mentioned apart from Chechnya (I need some sources for this since there has never been proof) all come back to the Israeli-Palestine conflict. Us gets involved then 9-11 happens after that all the other countries get also involved and al-qaida expands itself to those countries too, unfortunately getting plenty of support.

    In most of the areas discussed, the US has had little invovlement, not nearly enough to depict them as the major player and thus responsible for the terrorist attacks that take place there.

    Can you provide any examples of where terrorist attacks have provided 'victories' for the domestic issues that they are supposed to represent?

    How the hell does the violence in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia go back to the Israeli conflict?

    If they werent disputing, they wouldnt be bombing. The dispute is not, however, the one you believe it to be. Al-Qaeda, or groups that we consider to be part of this network, use common agrievances or political differences to garner sympathy from the likes of yourself. Its astonishing that some are willing to believe the words of mass murdering terrorists without looking further than a quote.
