The events what took place reminded me of david howes and Derek wood who were both serving soldiers murdered by many. For those that don't know this happened in 1988 in ireland, they drove into a funeral and one side thought they were initially loyalists. They were then dragged, put in a taxi and driven away, stripped, tortured, stabbed and shot, the priest who tried to help them was at risk of being shot himself, many people took part in their demise,
I guess what I am trying to say is people will always find a reason to justify the means, there will always be people who can be 'brainwashed', you only have to look at Nigeria
Where parents torture their children because they have been told by a pastor they are a witch!
What is the world coming to!
Fifth attempt at posting a comment.I answered the question "why do they hate the west", which is why i've addressed that and not anything else. Ask me another question if you want a different answer.
No, it's not all one way. The world is full of people, and mostly we're all pretty good, and we're all pretty similar. But there are some very bad ideas loose in the world, and some very bad people too, sometimes the people use the ideas and sometimes the ideas use the people, and while that is happening it tends to fuck things up for the ordinary people.
@Zoe in a way that incident was worse- in the current case we have two murderers, in that case there were at least dozens of people who were part of what happened to those guys. Both stomach churning, both almost incomprehensible to normal people, both carried out by people who would be quite able to rationally explain to you why they did it.
