Well let me be the first to say... From everything i've read and studied on the matter this video is just spot-on. I have a new respect for Ron Paul. His vision of the failings of American foreign policy, particularly as it applies in a historical context to the extremist Islamic view of America as the aggressor, match mine completely. Everyday North Americans without a proper sense of the extent of historical western meddling in middle eastern political affairs cannot comprehend this. I don't blame them for it. Just as this video shows, with its clear cut and well outlined examples, Arabs and Muslims as a whole have some very real reasons to be suspicious if not outright hostile to the west. I wrote an essay in University on Mossadeq, mentioned in the video, and that incident's effects on American-Iranian relations. More people need to watch this. It is well reasoned and historically accurate account.
I do not condone 9-11. I am not an apologist for it. It was not a conspiracy but nor are its causes outside the realm of reason.
I'm probably going to be shat on hard and I just broke my own cardinal rule of not posting in a shitstorm political thread.. but hey. +k OP, good find.
