Terrorists, idealists, and cronies

Reader comment on item: Stupid Terrorists
in response to reader comment: We are the stupid ones

Submitted by Willie Smart (United States), Jul 4, 2007 at 21:22

Usually, oppressed people become fighters using the most effective weapon possible, and their fight is branded 'terroristic' and the people 'terrorists.' However, some governments try to gain by overpowering and demonizing people to incite public wrath against 'the enemy.' That's what happened in Iraq. It's clear that the U.S. is that type of government, using weapons ranging from bribery to intimidation to sanctions and eventually the cruelest warfare. Look for more in the near future.

The terrorists of the world, in my opinion, are in the high offices of government in the United States of America; disguised as being pro-God, pro-Life, and conservative, the Bush Administration continues to elevate and escalate a war now being touted as a theological one against the Muslim (Extremists)--people of the world. There has been no truth in this administration, which terrorizes me; no respect for existing laws, common sense ethics, or humanity. Yes, be careful when describing terrorists...they may be closer than you think!
