We've already had that discussion like five times in this thread. We've been there. You're just saying the same thing over and over again.

Here, let me highlight in those posts the arguments you've chosen to ignore, to potentially take this thread is an interesting direction:

Quote:
We're selling a shotgun to a known murder, knowing exactly how he's going to use it.

We actually do have a choice not to do that. Hard to believe, I know.
Quote:
We don't have a choice -- we're actively involved one way or the other. That's what happens when you open up your pocketbooks to antidemocratic dictators overseas, you invariably end up here.

We knew exactly who we were doing business with, just like we did with the Taliban, just like we did with Saddam Hussein. Now all of us a sudden we're supposed to feign ignorance in order to save face -- yet again.
Quote:
But yeah, I'm sure the people in the Middle East hate us for our freedoms, right? Or because we're infidels...

Has nothing to do with the constant, seemingly politically unstoppable capitalization on their oppression.
