Babbling about detail, missing the point

Reformed Chicks Blabbing has a really long, detailed post using the ramblings of a madman (Bin Laden) to demonstrate that Ron Paul's explanation of why we were attacked on 9/11 is wrong, and so by implication Rudy must be right.

They say it's not as simplistic as Iraq.Well, duh, of course not. Paul didn't say it was either. He mentioned Iraq, he also mentioned decades of meddling in the Middle East. Hell, centuries. Barbary Pirates and all that.

The point is that Rudy's sound bit about how they hate us because of our freedom is something right out of 1984. It's nonsense. It gets applause, but it's nonsense.

They hate us for years and years of us meddling with stuff we don't know anything about, they hate us for our attempts to take title to their natural resources. They hate us for a lot of reasons, and our freedom simply isn't one of them.

Recognition of all the things we've done in the past and still do which have led to the attack on us does not mean Ron Paul is saying we should never have done them. I think in most cases he does think that, but that's not relevant to the simple truths of why the things that have happeded did happen.

They hate us because we are infidels. It's really that simple. Sorry it was too long for you.
