I never claimed we never provided arms or aid to Afghanistan. Everyone knows we supported them on at least two occasions. If anything, that support should make them less likely to attack us. Your comment was:
"If the U.S. doesn't want to get bombed then it should get out of other people's land and stop interfering in their lives."
Is it your position that we should immediately terminate foreign aid to all Arab states - i.e. get out of their country as you define it?
I just observed that not "being in" someone's country is obviously not enough to prevent being bombed. If you don't believe me, don't take my word for it. It's not like Al Quaeda and the PLO aren't saying the exact same thing. Why do you candy-coat the hatred of these people and dress it up as simply a geopolitical dispute? Don't you at least occaionally get disgusted when you look in the mirror?
