I guess preventing women from learning to read is good in

No, it is not! Where are people in power in the US
preventing women from learning to read in the US? What "Power"
is needs to be precisely defined. Arguments from unreal
hypotheticals are always fallacious.
What hypothetical?? Women ARE prevented from learning to read in
Afghanistan and we DO think it would be a bad thing to keep women
from learning to read here.
Is the average US citizen the cause of the actions of the
average Teleban member in Afghanistan? What is the relation
between some activity in Afghanistan and in "somewhere we are".
This is an equivocation, thus a rubbish argument.
Eh, there is a direct relation. After WW.II, The US and other world
powers have been playing Chess with the Third World. Toppling
democracies, installing puppet regimes. That's pretty much the CIAs
function. The actual history is interesting.. the Oliver Stone series
on Showtime right now is pretty informative. Why were we messing with
the governments if Iran, Guatemala, Indonesia, Vietnam, Congo,
Afghanistan? Why did the average citizens of those countries pose a
threat to the oil companies and agribusiness?
OH, I get it! The fact that I am born in the US makes me guilty of
a crime for which I must pay restitution. Nice! What a nice con. Get
people to believe that they owe you money and then sit back and collect
