Explaining suicide terrorism
Keith Suter says it far better than I ever could here: http://www.onlineopinion.com.au/view.asp?article=3707. It works nicely with an article in the Australian Financial Review, in which Scott Burchill examines the way proponents of the "War on Terrorism" use a false 'us against them' depiction in most counter-productive politics. Life is never that simple. We are never attacked if we have no part in the play ...
This is a great understanding and it's one that the advocates of the "War on Terrorism" just don't get. If only everyone understood that violence against desperate peoples is counter-productive.
Bring on the day when vengence is forgone in favour of understanding.Posted by Hughie at July 25, 2005 2:13 PM
