  • Sharpening Contradictions: Why al-Qaeda attacked Satirists in Paris
    • Maybe you're trying to make sense out of the senseless ? maybe this attack was just born out of nihilism and irrtionalism and had no overaching stretegic goal ? you might be right about the outcome of this attack, it may serves to divide the people of france from the muslim community, but was that the goal or is that just a welcome consequence to the people who carried out the attack ?.

      Mostly these attacks arent motivated by an urge for revege over something as trivial as a cartoon or a "way of life" , its usually grievances against western foriegn policy, but every now and then you do get completely irrational attackers purely motivated by the trivial.

      Although, without the backdrop of the last 10-14 years of western intervention in the middle east I doubt most of these attacks on places like charlie hebdo would even have occured.
