Even "terrorist" is a euphumism -- they're "Muslim aggressors"

Reader comment on item: [Beslan Atrocity:] They're Terrorists - Not Activists

Submitted by Maureen Cote (United States), Sep 7, 2004 at 13:12

Brilliant article describing the perverse PC liberal media's insistence on refusing to to call a spade a spade or to recognize the clash of values (civilizations) war that is evolving in the world today.

Watching France TV5 on satellite the day of the atrocity, I learned that the French media even managed to blame the Russians for the immolation of these schoolchildren by saying that the carnage was "provoked" by the Russian forces having attacked the Islamists in the school. [When the death of the children was "provoked" by the aggressive taking of the school and mining of the school with explosives by the Muslims !]

TV 5 went on to blame the Russians for having caused the death of the schoolchildren by their having "started" the war in Chechnya. [When the Russians are fighting against Islamic aggression in Chechnya, that is, as far away as possible from Moscow -- just the way Americans are trying to fight the Muslim aggressors in Iraq as far away as possible from Manhattan.]

As has been said, the definition of a Western liberal is a soft-headed intellectual who cannot take his own side in a fight. Makes it so much easier for that scimitar to cut off heads.
