If you stand on principle, Lawrence, you can't dictate who can stand there with you. Maybe the "Leftists" see some truth you refuse to see. Maybe the Islamists see some truth you refuse to see. Maybe some of it is the same truth that you refuse to see. It's a cheap trick to suggest that if someone criticizes American actions, they must be supporters of America's 'enemies."

The second paragraph below is even less worth responding to. Believing that the attack on 9/11 'followed' from American actions in the Middle East is NOT the same as believing that the 3000 Americans who died 'deserved' to die. Do you really think that these radical Islamists just constituted themselves as enemies of the U.S. out of nothing? Actions have consequences. U.S. actions over the last fifty years have borne this ugly fruit.

Your last sentence is utter nonsense.

But the Leftists I’m describing believe America should be defeated by the Islamists. It believes that it deserved to have its world trade center destroyed on 9/11. Such Leftists have declared common cause with the Radical Islamists.
