@38 The house of Saud was plenty cruel and plenty corrupt before 1991, but Osama Bin Laden & Co liked them just fine until then.

@33 Ok, so the US government has done very evil things in many countries but Saudi Arabia isn't one of them. Yet, Saudi society seems to produce more people who want to come here and kill us than any other country. Why do you think that is?

@18 When was the last time a terrorist attack was carried out on US soil by a foreign born person who wasn't Muslim? There are plenty of home grown terror groups, white supremacists, Puerto Rican Nationalists, etc. However, the people who come from half-way around the world to kill as many innocent people as they can all seem to be Muslim. Why do you think that is?

@28 Western Colonialism causes terrorism? Saudi Arabia was never colonized by the US or any other Christian nation. Yet, 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudis. It is true that our CIA overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran in 1953, but we did the same thing in Guatemala the following year. So there's nothing special about the way our government does business in the Muslim world. What is unique is the desire by some Muslims to come to the US and kill as many innocent people as they possibly can.

@12 I think that Western interference in the Middle East has been driven largely by the economic importance of fossil fuels. I don't think cultural differences have had much to do with it. I think Islamic culture has uniquely shaped the way the people of that region have responded to Western encroachment. The inhabitants of Latin America have not always taken kindly to Yankee Imperialism, but when was the last time you read about a Nicaraguan or a Guatemalan detonating a suicide vest at an Ariana Grande concert?

@7 So you would agree that deep seated cultural differences between the West and Islam are part of what drives wayward young men to do things like don suicide vests and blow themselves up at Ariana Grande concerts?

@4 Seriously, the United States has done plenty of horrible things in Muslim countries and plenty of horrible things in non-Muslim countries. Yet the foreigners who want to come to this country and blow stuff up are all Muslims. Why do you think that is?
