No Mike, we are killing for money, not God. There are some Americans that might disagree though. Being an atheist, I don't much care for either.

i never said we were killing for god.
maybe you guys should read it as is.

they are the ones killing for there god! why?
because i have sex, yes. because i sin, yes so if you are atheist and don't beleive in any god you are still on the list as infidel because you are not muslim

so do you really want to protect these people, so they can kill more people. even if its not you and i as americans but others because they are not strict muslim

I guess I am hung up on your "they" statement. Yes the taliban and bin laden dont like us very much and in fact they did get us. They, being Iraq had nothing to do with it and while we have occupied their country for 5 years not one shed of proof has come out that Iraq was involved in 9/11. This documentary is about the lies on the war on Iraq. I dont disagree that we had to go scatter the taliban/al qaeda to the four winds which we did but "they" continue to grow due to us being in Iraq and frankly we took our eyes off the prize to go fight Iraq for some reason that pretty much has to be money related.

anybody for jihad is worse than anybody already listed.

I was just pointing out why we are killing. I really don't believe any of the people in charge, on either side, are killing for anything but money. Religion is how it is justified to the people, as it has always been throughout history.

You can find justification in either book, Bible or Quran, for crusades or jihad; and people have. We have just made Iraq ripe for recruitment.
