      They always need to have an enemy. Look at Saddam and Osama. When they were killed besides the 'good feeling' most people from USA received, how did anything change? It didn't it became even worse..!

  • If there were no izzlam, there'd be no al-queda, Hezbollah, Hamas, or Terrorist's in general.
    It all comes from the unholy kuran.
    Izzlam is the enemy, and unfortunately, it is very real.

  • Al Queda is our creation, a data base of Islamic fighters used in a hammer and anvil fashion to further the elites goals. It was invented to fight Russia in Afghanistan. Then again in the Serbian War to shear off control of mineral wealth of Kosovo. 9-11 was used as a pretext for overthrowing the entire middle east. Rather than trying to use western armys from the outside, use your own hired militants and overthrow from the inside. As crazy as that sounds, it's the only way I could explain the w More..

  • I think after the 9-11 events the US gov't purposely planned to use the fear in gaining ever more control of our human rights in the US. There's no question that we the people have been led by the noses to believe everything the government says without question. I believe Bush should be held accountable for the lives of every American killed in Iraq for lying about WMD's. Those of you that believe everything the Gov't tells us are very naive. I love the USA and have fought in a war in Vietn More..

  • The fact that international terrorism was used by politicians to increase their stranglehold on the populace doesn't mean that this terrorism doesn't exist.

    • @Monty Erm, you obviously haven't seen the other series (yes series) of the BBC reaming Pakistan and Afghanistan a new arsehole through their duplicity with the taliban and al-queada. Is that biased too then?

      Or are you locked into the whole faux news syndrome where absolutely nothing is ever balanced?

    • @CargeLock whats funny is you helped prove my point with your comment, in this video they said that al queada is more manufactured by politicians and such but then in the series you mention they are attacking them and saying that they are real and are a threat, see my point?
