    Why Did 9/11 Happen?


         We all know what happened during 9/11, but the real question is why did it happen?


         According to Ron Paul, America is to blame for the 9/11 attacks. Ron Paul says American intervention in the Middle East is the main motivation behind the 9/11 attacks. This may be part of it because when you intervene in another country, they are going to push back.



         Al Qaeda wants to expel westerners, more specifically, Americans. They also want to drive out the U.S. from Muslim lands. They believe American influence is one of the biggest impediments to the establishment of non-Islamic governments.



         They are also willing to use force, if necessary, to unite all Muslims and establish an Islamic Nation adhering to the rule of the first Caliphs.



         We already knew about bin Laden before 9/11. He had attempted to blow up the World Trade Centers in 1993. Just before 9/11 we were discussing if bin Laden and his organization were a threat to us. Obviously they were if 9/11 happened.
