Here's an example of Mahr's deep thinking here:http://www.examiner.com/a-907203~Julia_Gorin__And_Bill_Maher_is_a__smart__comedian_.htmlAnd who can ever forget his brilliant remark that the US military doesn't really fight, i.e. we just drop bombs. Then there was his admission a while back that he had thought the US constitution had a right to privacy.
I reach for the middle ground here.I do believe there are bad people out there such that we need to keep our guard up.But I also recognize that our history is an aggravating factor that has contributed to this current situation.Our support of the Saudi Royal Family (both politically and militarily) is just an example.The Western countries have a long, long history of extracting wealth from the Middle east but the common folk sure haven't shared in the spoils.I think I'd be kicking up a fuss too.Was it by design that our leaders did not want the wealth shared over there?
