I know, you want so hard to set the constructs of the setup. How did it get this way? One of the issues with 8788's interpretation, is that it takes no historical perspective or any analysis other than the general street talk of the day.
This "just the current facts" type of thinking is so limited, its like being dropped in a war zone and saying, "Based on the incoming, the enemy must be those people over there"
The US supports the dictator, then when the people can take no more abuse and rise up they are anarchists and terrorists. Had nothing to do with the previous decades we supported Assad or Hussein or the Shah of Iran or Netanyahu or Noriega or Batista or...
For God sake we have torture chambers in Chicago that everyone knows about except DOJ.
You can't point fingers in the middle of a battle 8788.
You need to make true friends with your fellow humans.
If you parked a peace ship in the Mediterranean instead of the US Fleet, and really gave a shit about how the Palestinians were being treated. Brought water, food, electricity, housing, jobs, a damned economy, HUMAN RIGHTS.

Cause when you have a job, a home where your family is safe, and you are building a life with purpose and dignity, you ain't gonna go hunting for trouble.
That's all they are asking in the ghettos of the US.
That's all anybody is asking for...........
