You had me up to this point. The fallacy of the "Just War" in the western world is just that. A story that people in the West don't connect the dots from American projecting their influence through financial or military force into the lives and governments of billions around the world. In turn causing the death and mutilation of 100,000s of innocent people, in Iraq alone.
The fact that only the Islamics have been successful in bring the war back to American shores amplifies the fact that the worlds super-power does a very good job of keeping the worlds population under its control.
