Christchurch and Islamist Terrorism

The main thing that the murders in Christchurch, New Zealand have in common with Islamist terrorism is that pundits in the United States and Europe blame both on the United States.

I doubt that anyone disagrees with U. S. foreign policy more than I but I’m not arrogant enough to think that everything is our fault.

    Agreed. This is very common trope people use when they want to blame others who disagree on how foreign policy is run. Did we contribute in some ways that might have made things worse? No doubt. Probably some of the people were US citizens, but that doesn’t mean that the US as a country is responsible.


  • Exactly.
