I agree--the world is full of crazies and we will always have violence. But the fact is that America was never the target of terrorism until we took sides in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Sweden has never been targeted. Neither has Japan. Nor Switzerland, Denmark, Belgium and Finland. All prosperous, modern countries. All have female drivers and "decadent Western values". These countries don't get targeted because they don't take sides. The Muslims ignored our lifestyle for decades untill we butted in. In fact, most Muslim states were good friends until we took sides.

They desperately want freedom but the US won't let them have it. Using the CIA and US military, the US helped overthrow lawfully elected governments in Egypt, Algeria, Lybia, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and Indonesia. We support--financially, diplomatically and militarily--the repressive governments of Uzbekistan, Turjikistan, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Egypt and Indonesia, to name just a few. We have condoned the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of Timorese at the hands of the Indonesian govt (they used US weapons, intelligance and advice to do it), tens of thousands of Kurds at the hands of Turkey's govt (again, using US weapons, intelligence and millitary training to do it), the false imprisonment and brutalization of thousands in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Oman and Kuwait (many of their political prisoners we turned over to them). These people want to overthrow their oppressive governments and establish a free government but the US govt won't let them. So they are doing exactly what the US did when faced with overwhelming odds and outmatched by a far superior military--we resorted to guerilla warfare in the Revolutionary War, and so are these people.

Most Muslims are opposed to the fundamentalism, but do not stop them because they see it as the only way to get rid of the US's meddeling. If we were to pull out and let majority rule, the majority would not only establish a free govt but would get rid of all their nutcases. Case solved. And it won't cost us a dime.
