tim mcveigh and co. lived in america, does that mean we are a nation that harbors terrorists?You're intentionally misreading. There is a difference between McVeigh and a country that gives SAFE harbor to terrorists, and aids and abets them. Terrorists can live anywhere, when a government supports them a line is drawn.
terrorists dwelt in both england and n. ireland during their little spat, are they nations that harbor terrorists?
objectivity is key.
what nations are you referring to, galahad? perhaps the 'terrorist' taliban gov't of afghanistan? you know, the one we put in power and gave aid to . . . .
or saddam's iraq, who we also put in power and sold weapons of mass destruction?
or osama bin laden himself, who we trained and gave arms/support to?
or any of the other 'rebel' groups we suppported over the last 50 years in armpits all over the world?
do these people simply become terrorists because we stopped paying them (if we even have)? they are 'freedom fighters' while they're 'terrorizing' our enemies on our payroll, but they're suddenly 'terrorists' when they turn and bite the hand that feeds?
if we did those things (which we did), does that mean the US supports and funds terrorism?
again, objectivity is key, and naivete or selective memory is not an excuse for being a hypocrite, which is what one becomes when they start pointing fingers around the world :D .
our foreign policy finally seems to be catching up with us, huh?
