    Reads like a guy desperately trying to blame all this on one man when all the facts and evidence show it's the fault of our long term foreign policy (spanning several admistrations both D's and R's) of using terrorists to fight our illegal wars and scare the American people into accepting a police state here at home.

    Such is the way it goes in the false left vs right paradigm. Where we're more interested in bashing the other guy than trying to stop all the killing.

    I can sum up this article in three words. "It's Obama's fault". He shares the blame for sure but it's our long term insane foreign policy that's the real problem.

    Is it not also an act of war to use radical extremists to overthrow and oppress foreign nations? We've been doing just that since 1953! How can it be just one man's fault when so many from both wings of the government have used the same tactics for six decades?

    The world wide riots by the radical Islamists is the fault of Obamma. He is the one who told all these people about the existence of ths so-called movie.

    C'mon now OR even you must know by now how naive that sounds.

    How many muslim countries has the US and Israel bombed and or occupied in recent history? Let's see.

    Under Clinton, Iraq, Afghanistan and Sudan.

    Under Bush, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Pakistan and Somalia.

    Under Obama, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and Libya. Soon it'll be Syria's turn from the looks of it.

    Israel has bombed, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Iraq.

    How many muslim countries do we have military bases in? Let's see.

    Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Turkey, Pakistan, UAE, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan, Djibouti, Kyrgyzstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Somalia, Ethiopia, and Chad.

    I wonder where those silly Muslims come up with the conspiratorial, absolutely irrational idea that the U.S. is waging war against the Muslim world?

    With seven
    active wars in seven different Muslim countries, it is quite an amazing thing that Americans can have the audacity to ask: “why are Muslims so violent and warlike?”

    But, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The
    New York Times reports that President Barack Obama “widened” the war, which is now being waged across “two continents” in “roughly a dozen countries — from the deserts of North Africa, to the mountains of Pakistan, to former Soviet republics,” using “robotic drones and commando teams” as well as “contractors” and “local operatives.”

    Even more worrisome, the
    Washington Post reports that America’s “secret wars” are waged by “Special Operations forces” in “75 countries” (and “that number will likely reach 120″); in other words, the United States will have engaged in military acts in over 60% of the world’s nation-states. After all of this, Americans will turn around and ask: “why are Muslims so violent and warlike?”

    Could it possibly be more obvious that the War on Terror is just a pretext for global domination?
