Guess What? It's Not Our Freedoms They Hate

Robert Pape, a University of Chicago political science professor and former Air Force lecturer, will present findings on Capitol Hill on Tuesday that argue that the majority of suicide terrorism around the world since 1980 has had a common cause: military occupation.


"We have lots of evidence now that when you put the foreign military presence in, it triggers suicide terrorism campaigns, ... and that when the foreign forces leave, it takes away almost 100 percent of the terrorist campaign," Pape said in an interview last week on his findings.


Six years for that study (which corroborates a 2004 study commissioned by none other than Ronald Rumsfeld)...a long time to "find" out those things when everybody not willfully ignorant already knew or at least suspected.

Six years for us to continue bombing and killing while pretending we're just fighting people who hate us because we're free and want to kill us because they're crazy. And Islamic.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
