Why is the US facing a jihad? Well, since 1945 the US has been killing foreign labor leaders, journalists, and liberal politicians. Working with, or for, the foreign dictators who will do what American corporations want, we pretty much wiped out the secular opposition.
Iran is the model here. The Shah pretty much killed all the secularists who opposed him, leaving only the true-blue Muslims. Hey presto! theocratic state.
It's not rocket science, people. In fact, being so good with rockets is probably one reason that, like Hitler and Tojo, we got "too big for our britches". And now we're about to lose our pants trying to save face.
