Extraordinary video which begins with a myth of “terrorism” but goes on to show the horrors of military occupation. This is not a condemnation of US military personnel, but a moving indictment of criminal policies.
CAVEAT: This video is about what makes people into suicide bombers. What make people into “terrorists” (namely those who use violence to create terror to achieve political ends as per UN definition) is more often an elite education and an elected or unelected position of power in a militarily powerful society such as US, China, UK, France, India, Russia etc., etc. Such terrorists greatly outnumber those in non-state organisations as do their victims.
Also note that governments and academics have known this about suicide bombers for a very long time. Attempts to link suicide attacks to religious extremism are and have always been deception.

Hi, the video link does not work.
Thanks for that. Working now, I hope. Had lots of trouble with the URL as it was part of a playlist.
Yes, with YouTube playlists it somertimes seems best to put the individual video’s name into the YouTube search box.
I’ll remember that. Love your blog by the way. Congratulations on getting so many hits the other day.
