I've agreed that some terrorists may well hate us for our policies. My position is that hatred of our culture/freedoms is also a major motivator. Therefore, to prove me wrong you'd have to make the case that most terrorists have to hate us almost exclusively for our policies.
Ah. Good to hear.
Regarding your last sentence there -- what would you need to see as proof to the contrary?
