Only another mega-crisis will awaken the peaceniks

Reader comment on item: [Militant Islam:] No Less a Threat

Submitted by Sudhir (United States), Aug 31, 2003 at 23:16

Unfortunate as it may seem, only another mega-crisis rivalling the scale of a 9-11 will rouse the ultra-liberal peaceniks, other academic, intellectual and media-based apologists for radical islam and western institutions (both executive and judicial) from their inexplicable slumber.

Relatively small incidents (as in where the body count is in single or double digits) happening all over the world from the philipines to western europe is certain to be glossed over or explained away as something more innoucous than it is by these people. This pattern was once again noticed in the recent Bomb explosions in Bombay, India that claimed 65 lives and wounded scores more.

The US is the beacon of hope in this war and pray, may the famed american resolve never weaken!
