    If I push drugs onto a vulnerable or ill educated person is he alone to blame for his ultimate demise or descent into a life of crime. Am I culpable or not? I didn't even force him to take the drugs nor did I intend for him to commit crimes to feed his addiction. In your world I am not culpable. He took the drugs i merely did what someone else would have done if not for me. Now get this. If you fund and supply with arms a lethal force not intending or even considering that they may later on turn their guns on less savoury targets, do you not bear some responsibility for this turn of events. Or do you say like you appear to. "it was not of my doing"? In reality the US can say that they were not culpable in genocides in Indonesia,Guatemala,El Salvador,Iran,Iraq and dozens more. Or that they had no idea that Bin Laden was such a danger when they supported him. The only folks who believe that are the gullible and the truly culpable. ie: those that turn their eyes from crimes are as guilty as those that commit the very crimes. That is why much of the world does not buy into this war on terror, even many Americans. It is fake. The US has, is and will continue to use terrorists as it suits and commit State terror as it has in Iraq,Serbia,Vietnam,Laos,Cambodia and countless more sovereign nations. You are really being a touch hypocritical here Cipora. Terror is terror after all?
