Why do they hate us?

Why do Muslims hate us? I'm clueless; so when we got off shift at the saw mill I asked a couple of regular guys at the local tavern what they think the problem is. One said, and this is probably totally right, that Muslims hate us because back in the early 1950s when Stalin was trying to take over the rest of Central Asia, the CIA and the British MI6 got rid of the Communist Iranian, Mohammad Mosaddegh in a coup d'etat. I wondered if it were really a matter of American imperialism, so I asked a couple of women, just to be sure the first wrren't giving me some typical guy answer.
Yeah, they agreed that Muslims hate us because of American imperialism. So now we know. Just gotta ask the right people.

Well, it's good you asked a representative sample, and not a tiny minority of extremists.

Excellent post! I love the subtlety.

Liberals would never get it...

Sorry for the delay in posting your comments. Tons of foreign spam to rid us of.

Yes, it's subtle and yet wide-ranging in thought and scope. I like to think I can really dig down and look up from the hole to see things clearly. I call it a talent.
