Fodder for a teddy boy

Reader comment on item: [Ra'ed Mansour al-Banna:] The California Suicide Bomber

hearing a story like this - which may happen regularly makes me only wonder. I can hear it now.... dream-like fog moves in over the screen.... on the floor of the US Congress, teddy kennedy is speaking with joe biden, john kerry & barbara boxer nodding their heads along in sympathy... and we can hear... "This looks like another case of the 'west' failing miserably in allowing a young man to reach his full potential in this world... why if the usa never made the man return to such dire conditions he might have been a happy tax-paying citizen delivering pizzas to me, and all of you".... more nods... nightmare ends.

In other words - the blame should directed to the 'society' that doesn't keep these scoundrels completely occupied and happy[or distracted from their holy teachings] - they may have no other choice but to adopt militant islam and sadly blow up some people.

Well, good thing the security of the USA isn't good enough to stop them all. I mean, we may have to come to the conclusion that the interpretation of the holy Koran may be the original cause of the terror of its adherents!
