re: Muslim Hacktivists Take Credit For U.S. Bank Attack
I admit I don't get it. I was born in the USA and I'm not Muslim.

By the hackers way of thinking, can I fire bomb some buildings in Pakistan. I'm justified because some Pakistani attacked a bank in the USA - even though the Pakistani building occupants had nothing to do with this.

If some guy says a bad word about Islam, why is it that Imans think the entire country where that guy lives should be destroyed? Strangely, the USA guy is from Egypt so why aren't they destroying Egypt?

re: Muslim Hacktivists Take Credit For U.S. Bank Attack
The 9/11 attackers where mainly from Saudi-Arabia and Egypt. Also, most of the funding came from Saudi-Arabia, but the US government at that time decided to bomb Iraq and Afghanistan back into the stone age. There is a lot of ridiculous stupidity on all sides.

re: Muslim Hacktivists Take Credit For U.S. Bank Attack
It matters little what the country of origin is for a bad actor. Surely you don't think that the LA creator of the anti-muslim video speaks for the entire US (or that we all support him) do you?

It's true that the 911 criminals were mainly Saudi. However, they were living and training in Afghanistan under the protection of the Taliban... an equally despicable bunch. I think it was the right call to take that group out.

Iraq, on the other hand, was the culmination of both a personal vendetta ala the Bush family as well as Cheney and his cronies milking billions for their military industrial complex connections.That one definitely meets your ridiculous stupidity test.
