    blaming them

    Hi everybody
    In the sentence "we are bleaming them for it" I don't understand the meaning of the word them.
    For me the correct way of this sentence is "we are bleaming for it".
    thanks.

    Presumably it is somebody previously referred to.

    You can blame somebody, or you can be blamed. You cannot simply blame.

    ps. Sorry, I didn't notice this was your first post. Welcome to the forum.

    Re: blaming them

    I understand that I can blame somebody or I can be blame for something but It's possible saying "we are blaming somebody for something"?
    For me it's correct "we are blame us for it" or "we blame them for it".

    Tom: Why are you angry with me?

    Joe: Mona was going to marry me. Then she met you. You are more handsome than I am.

    Tom: That's true.

    Joe: Well, Mona has left me. I blame you for taking Mona away from me.

    Tom: Don't worry, dude. There's a lot of fish in the sea. You'll soon find another

    girlfriend.
