Re: Innocence of Muslims
The world is a fucked up place and in both sides of the spectrum they are wrong in different accounts. When these attacks towards US Embassy's were done in Libya and Egypt I saw Obama deliver a speech which sounded eerily like something George Bush would have said which is scary. He started talking about national security to protect the freedoms of America and the Arab world's hatred for their values but anyone who has ever done research into this matter will know that this has nothing to do with hating on western values or protecting freedoms which apparently the Arab world is "Jealous of", its anything but that. The United States freedoms have been diminishing year by year since 9/11 due to America's version of the Nuremberg Laws the Nazi's wrote in 1933 ala the Patriot Act.
It is everything to do with the United States continued policy of interventionism in the middle east, the formation of hundreds of military bases around the world including in Arabic countries which has led to two unjust wars (three if you include Libya) and the Arab countries who have military bases surrounding them are frightened and scared because essentially they have the US military occupying their land. The first thing you want to do when you have foreign invaders is to attack and repel them and get them the hell out of their land. If China or Russia had military bases in the United States, there would be outrage across the world but the US these days tend to get a free pass. All this done in the name of promoting "Democracy" in western countries. Whether the US government actually believes in democracy by force or not is up for debate and that usually leads to conspiracy theorists coming up with alternative explanations.
This leads to the video that was made...and quite frankly this is where the stupidity of Religion and its fanatical followers come into play. The fact is it is bad enough that some thick headed idiots have come up with a way to insult Islam and its followers. I haven't seen the video myself but my guess is is that this video probably was made by some Christian religious fanatics trying to promote propaganda against Islam as they see what's going on the middle east as a holy war. Remember when Bush called the war against terrorism a crusade about 10 years ago? Proves my point. Either that or some dimwitted American who has been brainwashed into thinking Islam is the biggest evil against western values. Either way, its fucking retarded.
But then we have these religious muslim fanatics who are quite rightly angry but then end up resorting to violence and end up killing innocent people including that American diplomat in Libya who is probably only doing his job and only doing what the people above him want him to do and pretty much prove the points this video and Christian/anti Islam fanatics have been saying all along. Religion mixed with a political situation is never a good thing and always seems to escalate into violence and its been proven time and time again. I would have more sympathy for the Arab world if they didn't have fanatics who use their religion as an excuse to kill innocent people just because they don't like a propaganda video that was made. Not only is it fucked up and it plays right back into the hands of fanatical Christians and the American government.
