OT: facts about the "snake"...perspective

  • Subject: OT: facts about the "snake"...perspective

Mike Unser is right about bin Laden...he was trained in 1979 in the 
U.S. by the CIA to be a "leader" in commanding Muslim fundamentalists 
in Afghanistan to fight against the USSR in the '80s. The USA 
financially backed these Afghan rebels (shades of the contras,etc.) 
When we stopped our money support (under the first Pres. Bush), this 
monster we created turned against the USA. This info is not to be 
heard the past 10 years or so and certainly not this horrific week in 
our country. 

It needs to be disseminated and discussed because rhetoric (we are 
good, 'they' are evil, etc.) is getting in the way of facts. 

Make no mistake about my feelings this week - I have personally been 
on a roller coaster....at least one person I know (24 years old) is 
still missing (presumed dead) in the World Trade Towers.

They are no good decisions to be made in all this....vengeance doesn't 
resurrect the dead BUT these rogue nations and quasi-organizations 
only seem to understand death and destruction as they employ them to 
hurt and destroy lives. I wanted to level Kabul on Tues. night myself 
but time has added more perspective. Personally, I think bin Laden and 
Sadaam Hussein should be "taken out" and their minions as well. 

What to do, what to do...this is not the forum for this and I hope 
John doesn't kick me off for this post but worse things have happened 
this week.

the US at the CIA's School of the Americas in Georgia.  America 
trained and unleashed this monster (as well as many others) upon the 
world, is it a suprise the snake turned and bit us?)
