I made that post thinking about Arabs in general, not necessarily bin Laden...because these guys definitely ARE crazy. I'll admit that after learning more about him my post looks a bit silly, as I didn't know myself what the hell his agenda was -- for your information here's some interesting CIA documents on him:http://www.thesmokinggun.com/binladen/binladen.shtml
Apparently the guy wants to create some sort of dominion over all the Muslim countries. The scary thing about that is that Pakistan has nukes, and bin Laden is apparently cozy with Pakistan...
However, according to reports this guy's organisation has around 400 people. That's more of a cult than a political entity. Fanaticism is not unique to Arabs either.
In this sense I think the general ill will towards the US in the middle east should not be equated with the mad ego of this particular bastard, with whom reasoning seems absurd.
