"Dear" Islamic Militants

If you really want the US to leave Iraq, you need to help rebuild your country, your infrastructure, and your government, not threaten and kill foreigners. Really, the more you threaten, kidnap, blackmail, sabotage, destroy, and kill, the longer we will feel that we have to stay - our pride demands it. The more violence you put forward, the more ticked off we will get, and the more troops will come in, the more homes will be destroyed, the more visceral retaliation we will engage in. You want us to leave? Be nice and peaceful, part of the international community, and no one will be able to justify keeping troops there. It's simple, really.

Realize you would have many more people sympathizing with you if you weren't so quick to shed random blood. If you act like all you understand is vicious violence, that is all you will get. If you wanted to get our attention, you got it, but it will not be the kind that benefits you. Martyrdom is a dead end, and the way to gain allies is not to kill their friends and countrymen. Quit giving Bush and the neo-cons excuses to impose more "pax americana". Sheesh.

Whilst your history is true, I rather suspect that America's similar, but rather more recent, actions might just be the cause.

After all, they are pissed at the USA, not Britain, and it's not because they can't tell the differance, because they can. British troops got welcomed, and for awhile at least, were having a slightly easier time of it.

Face it, America screwed up during the late 80's and 90's, on the diplomatic front. We're all paying for it now. [I remember remarking at the time, when the Taliban kicked the Russians out that I doubted it would stop there.]

You will notice, as will anyone intelligent enough to wade through the bullshit and look at historical facts, that Bush and Bin Laden have a history of working together.

The very sick and fucked up fact of life is that THEY STILL ARE, it's just on a new and improved level of mutual stupidity previously unexplored by most life forms since Adolf Hitler.

You see, you're assuming that what they state they want, is actually what they want.

The reality is, the people who are doing this are out to get more power for themselves, either in a genuine belief that they can then use this to impose a fundimental Islamic rule, or as a cynical, personal power-grab.

To this end, chaos, bloodshed and death [provided it's someone else's blood and death.] serves their ends, and not peace and order.

So far, they're getting what they want.
