> I've seen a couple of pundits blame it on the fact that Ralph Nader lost the last election, but as I have no idea what his foreign policies might be, I don't know what they mean by that. Any US politicos want to answer that for me?

I'm not too certain myself, I didn't follow what Ralph Nader's policies on anything during the election, he had no chance anyways. But from the little I do know, he was to the left of Gore on most issues. This fact isn't particularly comforting to me, since I prefer a Republican in office during times of war - they are more supportive of the military, and are more willing to bite the bullet on the issues that make Democrats uncertain.

> America has certainly made mistakes in foreign policy, but so has every country on Earth, and it hardly excuses actions like these.

I agree that they have made mistakes, I just can't seem to find the ones that led to this incident. If support of Israel and war on Iraq led to this outcome...I'd hate to see what would have happened had these policies gone the other way. A little VX over New York, courtesy of Saddam Hussein?
