    Terrorism is sponsored by USA. AlQaeda is composed by freedom fighters.

      Then, the USA is fighting for freedom from Al Qaeda.

      AQ was funded by CIA to help oust the Soviets. It was a common cause and eventually worked. The trouble is AQ was a terrorist group that could not be shut off due to their unruly mindset and turned on their creators, biting the hand that fed them. The one and only way AQ knows to disagree is to kill and maim. And I suppose that is not their fault, neither.

      Napoli – USA has no right to put military basis all around the world. Muslim governments are illehal. AlQaeda planned to kill Mubaraq and his goal is to overcome Muslim dictatorships. USA is doing something similar in Libya, but in a wrong way.

      You are correct, the US has nor exercises any "right" to place bases around the world. They are invited guests and may be expelled at anytime in the countries where bases exist. Please listen to Palmari and get your facts straight, or hear them when they are presented as they really are. Aid to countries comes in many forms and Bases are but one. Pakistan, for example, is very careful about this even though I am sure there is a strong desire on the US side to have bases to combat the terrorist problem, as you say, the US created. But, this is not the case, now is it? Assassination is not very legal, now is it? AQ, operates as criminals, even though you may agree with their intentions. You really should quit discrediting yourself by insisting they are justify, but please, have it your way.

        Assassinations inside a country are not an american problem. Especially if the target is a dictator like Mubaraq, the USA is taking a great risk to their people for possible retaliation. 9/11 was the proof I am correct.

    USA should cut all AID and kick all terrorists from Afghanistan (seems no terrorist left in Afghanistan anymore, all are living in Pakistan for the past 7 years now ) then Pakistan will not have any $ and that's the end of Terrorists.

    Terrorists are only running for $, if no $ from USA and no $ from Afghan Drug then they are dead😀

    CUT/STOP THE F00KING AID TO STUPID TERRORIST COUNTRY PAKISTAN RIGHT NOW IF YOU WANT TO PUT AN END TO THE PAKISTANI TERRORISTS!!!
