RE: The Crusades Weren’t That Bad? Uh, No.

The10thman: You’re looking at all of this from a Western perspective. We really do some bad shit in these other countries and no one here ever hears about it. We all think we’re the great liberators. We’re not. We’re involved in everybody’s business all over the world because we are protecting resources that we need. It’s all business. We allow or stop those things that benefit us directly or indirectly. We really are horrible people and some societies are viewing it from a very different perspective and feel they are protecting themselves, much like we did to the English during the american Revolution. Terrorism is all the same: doing bad things randomly. We support it when it benefits us.
