#1  My level of confusion over the violence is increasing.

Now, isn't all of this violence because we've been oppressing the Moslems? And won't the violence stop if we would just try to understand? And maybe if we could get them to like us, the fighting would stop?

So, why then are they so intent on killing each other? It is not like this is Sunni against Shiia, this seems to be Sunni against Sunni and Shiia against Shiia. What is the point in all of this violence? Is there a collective insanity over there? Or is the collective insanity the religion? Or the goons and half wits that foist themselves off as holy men and religion leaders that are crazy?
