Why They Fight

Arthur explains:
...the government takes your money through taxes -- it then gives some of your money and that of other taxpayers to other nations, such as Israel -- and then other nations like Israel use that money, i.e., your money and that of other taxpayers, to buy weapons from companies like Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Raytheon.

And then those weapons -- that were paid for in part with your money -- are used to kill, among others, innocent civilians in Lebanon. At this moment and for the last several years, your money also pays for the killing, maiming and torturing of innocent civilians numbering in the tens of thousands in Iraq.

When the next terrorist attack takes American lives -- and perhaps the attack will be led by an Iraqi or a Lebanese who had never had any sympathy for terrorists, at least not until the U.S., directly or indirectly, killed his entire family and most of his relatives -- I suppose our government will tell us once more that "they hate us for our freedom," and many Americans will again enthusiastically believe this self-justifying, self-flattering load of bullshit.
--" They Hate Us Because We Kill Them"
