I've been thinking about this concept lately - we hear all about how terrorists killed 3,000 "innocent" Americans on 9/11 or how Palestinian terrorists kill "innocent" Israeli citizens... But WHY are these people "innocent?" How can we, as Americans, claim we are "innocent" when WE elect our government, WE supposedly tell our government what to do, WE are complicit in our government's actions, WE support our ruling elite economically. Likewise, the Israelis tolerate their government's actions, which they also supposedly elect. I propose that NONE of us are "innocent" when we allow our government to terrorize the world and do nothing. NONE of us are "innocent" when we continue paying taxes, re-electing these bastards to abuse the TRULY innocent peoples of the third world, NONE of us are innocent when we keep fueling the economic system of this country - pumping money into goods produced with slave labor or in sweatshops or through oppression and death and misery. Why would terrorists view any of US as "innocent civilians?" We boast all the time about how "free" we are and how much "democracy" we have, so clearly WE THE PEOPLE are the guiltiest ones of all, according to our OWN ADMISSION! If we CLAIM to elect and control our government, my friends, NONE of us are "innocent civilians." We are all VALID TARGETS.
