As a matter of fact Osama Bin Ladin is an educated son of a Saudi billionaire and 15 of the 19 WTC terrorists were Saudis. Bin Ladin's biggest gripe has always been the presence of military troops in the middle east.

Is that true though; that Osama Bin Laden owned a defunct Oil Company? He doesn't seem now to believe in the oil industry.

Osama bin Laden: Biography from Answers.com

Britannica Concise Encyclopedia: Osama bin Laden Top

Home > Library > Miscellaneous > Britannica Concise Encyclopedia

.content{clear:both;}
(born 1957, Riyadh, Saud.Ar.) Leader of a broad-based Islamic extremist movement implicated in numerous acts of terrorism against the U.S. and other Western countries. The son of a wealthy Saudi family, he joined the Muslim resistance in Afghanistan after the 1979 Soviet invasion of that country. Following his homecoming, he became enraged at the presence of U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia during the Persian Gulf War (1990 – 91) and, through a network of like-minded Islamic militants known as al-Qaeda, launched a series of terrorist attacks. These acts included the bombings of the World Trade Center in New York City in 1993, the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998, and the U.S. warship Cole in Aden, Yemen, in 2000. A self-styled Islamic scholar, bin Laden issued several legal opinions calling on Muslims to take up jihad (holy war) against the U.S., and in 2001 a group of militants under his direction launched the September 11 attacks, which led to the deaths of some 3,000 people. The U.S. thereafter demanded bin Laden's extradition from Afghanistan, where he was sheltered by that country's Taliban militia, and launched attacks on Taliban and al-Qaeda forces when that ultimatum was not met. With the collapse of the Taliban, bin Laden and his associates went into hiding.

It also concerns me that we seem to be getting more home grown fanatics.

Some of the results of the Pew Research Center poll of Muslims in America were startling: 26% of Muslims between the ages of 18 and 29 affirmed that there could be justification in some (unspecified) circumstances for suicide bombing, and five percent of all the Muslims surveyed said that they had a favorable view of Al-Qaeda. Given the Pew Center’s estimate of 2.35 million Muslims in America, and the total of thirteen percent that avowed a belief that suicide bombings could ever be justified, that’s over 300,000 supporters of suicide attacks. And 117,500 supporters of Al-Qaeda.

300,000 for suicide attacks - HUMAN EVENTS

You know what will happen eventually. They are going to **** of a bunch of people who are going to start terrorizing muslims. Then we are going to have to deal with a civil war.
It has already started in India, they are forming their own terror groups to strike back.

Until people understand that they do not have the right to not be offended, these monsters will continue to spill rivers of blood.

I'm curious...what would be wrong with the U S bringing our military troops home and stopping the killing of their civilians? It's estimated that in Iraq 2,000,000 fled to other countries and at least 150,000 innocent civilians were killed from 2003 to present.

This was my exact thought after reading a few of her posts.

To Mooseketeer, Word: We can fake a birth certificate and get you on the ballot here in the U.S. and then rig the election to get you in. After you straighten the world out everyone will forgive our little tactics as they are experiencing the happy effect of your common sense.

Do we have a deal???

The man who assumed the office about 10 months ago will straighten out a lot of it. He has more sense in his left pinky than the whole Bush family put together...yes, even Jeb and Marvin.

Can the West trust Islam? Plain and simple... NO. There are just too many radicals out there who have no regards for human life and other religions.
