Bin Laden fought for america and he still does...

Bin Laden was an american soldier when he fight against Soviet Union

what makes him fight for them america if it's people are "disbelievers" ?

it is not allowed at all to fight with disbelievers (as he think of the american people)

and then what makes him change his mind to fight against them?

O.M.F.G. Only a dumbass American would believe that Al Qaeda was an American organisation! Listen dude, these people (Middle Eastern Muslims) HATE your Yankee ass because of your government's foreign policy. I do believe that the American government was responsible for 9/11 but it was because of the blundering, irresponsible, cowboy way in which they stick their oversized noses into other country's affairs and mess them up.

And 'fought' is the past tense of 'fight' not 'fighted'. But then again that's pretty endemic of a sub standard education system.

Osama Bin Laden didn't "fight", he preached...he used his money to build homes in Afghanistan where people would come to discuss Islam, and over time he became a skilled orator. When the Taliban emerged as the governing force in Afghanistan, he took care of the right people and they let him do his thing.

On occasion he'd get his picture taken with a rifle in his hands, but this guy was never a soldier.

And the arms/equipment/cash we and the Saudis funneled to Afghanistan through Pakistan's ISI...that doesn't make Osama a proxy of the US, no more than Shiite insurgents are a proxy of Iran.

These things happen in wars where a country with interests but not direct involvement in that war. Support is provided and if it's done right, there is minimal blowback from it years down the road. Obviously in this case, it wasn't done right and we suffered as a consequence.
