Crop And Save
They do not appear out of thin air; nor do any of them inherently oppose the US right to exist. They oppose our interventionist policies that arbitrarily label these groups "terrorists" and the Saudis and Israel our "friends?"
From the British drawing out countries with a T-square on a map after WWI up through today's proxy war in Syria, Western Imperialist intervention has been a complete disaster.
But it's "catnip" to shallow-minded Western leaders spurred on by war profiteers. The 3 best are: 1) Frontline's The Secret History of Isis 2) Fareed Zakaria's GPS Episode Why They Hate Us. 3) Jihad: A Story of Others
3 quotes sum it up: 1) "We have met the enemy and he is us." --Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry 2) "Western modernity enmeshed people in spiritually numbing networks of discipline and control." Sayyid Qutb. 3) "These things happened. They were glorious and they changed the world... and then we F'd up the end game." - Charlie Wilson
Sometimes heartbreaking, most times beautiful, and at all times INSANELY powerful!
"I don't understand. All my life I've been waiting for someone and when I find her, she's... she's a fish." --Allen (Tom Hanks) Splash.
In my opinion love that has no chance of EVER succeeding... but sometimes does, is the most beautiful love of all. Whether you end up with that person or not you will always remember the experience.

See my other lists here http://www.imdb.com/user/ur27948562/lists
Media including documentaries and dramas based on actual historical events show how these events took place and how "we" were changed by them.
These are ORDERED BY HISTORICAL DATE. And yes just for fun I threw in a few that I believe are coming in the future. Thanks for visiting this list. I appreciate your comments.
These titles include mostly peaceful, some armed, confrontation for meaningful change. Some were successful, some failed but ALL are remembered. And remembering is most important in building up the courage for our time.
All show confrontation at particular times in history are necessary and contrast sharply to "business as usual." These are interesting to me.
"It was needed at that moment in history. And I am sure that time will come again. Just as sure as I am of that sun coming up and going down. When people are abused for so long that they only thing they can turn to is confrontational politics - they're going to do that."

My only response is here to show the real titles people should be watching if any on this day. The ones that celebrate LABOR not the people who sought (and continue seeking) to exploit them.
